Famed director Quentin Tarantino has been busy with his latest film, Django Unchained for several weeks now, and considering the amount of attention his projects usually garner, it’s a wonder that no set pictures have leaked, until now that is.
Starring Christoph Waltz and Jamie Foxx, as dentist turned bounty hunter King Schultz, alongside the freed slave Django, as the duo track down plantation owner Calvin Candie (Leonardo Dicaprio), in order to rescue Django’s wife, played by Kerry Washington, from the ruthless group of slavers.
Hit the jump for a look at Waltz in costume.
Django unchained has a massive ensemble cast so far, so hold your breath as you read this out: Kerry Washington, Samuel L. Jackson, Sacha Baron Cohen, Dennis Christopher, Kurt Russell, Laura Cayouette,Don Johnson, M.C. Gainey, Tom Savini, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Anthony LaPaglia,RZA, Misty Upham, Tom Wopat and James Remar.
And while I’m not the biggest fan of Tarantino films as of late, due to their habot of being bogged down with mind-numbingly excruciating dialogue, I’m hoping that this western will once again get his creative juices flowing, allowing him to give us a film that both enlightens and entertains, with his trademark sadistic humour.
Django Unchained opens this year on December 25. Yes, it’s a Christmas movie, from Quentin Tarantino.
