QTs New Film: DJANGO UNCHAINED (THE "SOUTHERN")

Postby Pete » Mon Mar 28, 2011 5:07 pm

What do people think about QT doing his own spin on the western aka "Southern"? I cant wait to hear more about the movie, esp the plot details and of course The TITLE! :)

something that got posted on

http://hollywood-elsewhere.com/2011/04/true_to_form.php

SPOILER ALERT

As someone who has actually read Tarantino's latest script - and no I can't forward it to anyone, it'll get out there pretty soon anyway and I ain't about to scan 166 pages of script because I'm sitting on a hard copy - I can tell you that most of you are just shooting from the hip. DJANGO is fucking awesome and it's a script that only QT could have written... and I actually think it's one of his most personal scripts to date.

First off, this thing is going to be controversial with a capital C. The title character Django is a freed slave, who under the tutelage of a German bounty hunter (Christophe Waltz) becomes a badass bounty hunter himself and after assisting Waltz on taking down some bad guys for profit, is in turn assisted by Waltz in tracking down his slave wife and liberating her from an evil plantation owner. And that doesn't even half begin to cover it! This film deals with racism as I've rarely seen it handled in a Hollywood film. While it's 100 percent pure popcorn and revenge flick, it is pure genius in the way it takes on the evil slave owning south. Think of what he did with the Nazis in Inglourious and you'll get a sense of what he's doing with slave owners and slave overseers in this one. It's violent and funny and full of great Tarantino monologues and shoot outs (and slave rapes and slave tortures) and the center piece of the script is this fantastic relationship between Django and his Obi-Wan Waltz and it all just fucking works in the way only Tarantino makes it work. If you're a QT hater this script won't convert you. If you're a fan, you'll be onboard for the entire ride and you'll love every fucking second of it. I cannot wait to see the finished movie. It's going to shock and offend and drive people nuts when they see this thing. Detractors are going to find a thousand reference points from previous movies, but they've never been presented like this and I'm some one who has seen a LOT of movies and this script didn't feel familiar to me in the slightest.

So thrilled to hear this!! Of course at first I thought it would be an actual sequel to Django but then knowing QTs style of going down a totally diff path, I wasnt surprised to hear its not about that at all. I love the plot and so happy to hear Christoph Waltz will be in it! Cant wait to see who else is cast in the film! ;D

The Southern: A spaghetti western style story set in slavery times = GENIUS!!!

So many haters in the comments. Bet they still go see the movie. The concept may not be original, but the writing and execution will hopefully be beyond expectation.

I like the idea. Looking forwards to Waltz and seeing who he lines up as the lead actor.

Who do you think is gonna be in the title role since Jackson is probably too old for it, is Will Smith the only "younger" black star in Hollywood now? There were some rumors a few months ago that Chris Tucker will play in the next Tarantino movie, that would be a typical out-of-the-blue Quentin casting, maybe he could even pull it off 'cause he doesn't look goofy any more (don't know about his voice):

But in that case they would have to cast some big names for the villains or supporting roles to draw in the crowd...

Maybe you're right, i could imagine them (Waltz and Tucker) having a similar relation to the one between Clint Eastwood and Eli Wallach in The Good, The Bad and The Ugly, but i'm seriously hoping he doesn't cast a comedian in this role. Cuba Gooding Jr. could be a good pick for the part and it would also be QTs typical out-of-the-blue casting, because his career has taken a bad direction in the last years, altough he had some major hits in the 90s.

I would rather it be someone we don't know too well, rather than a 'big name star'. Quality is always better than quantity. Chris Tucker, I agree is too old, Will Smith, forget it, too main stream.

I want QT to do what he does best. Introduce us to amazing talent we have either overlooked or didn't know was there. i.e. Waltz.

I think the same, the best would be a not known actor discovered like Waltz. I hope that it won't be as difficult as Waltz but as good as that choice!!

The funny thing is, I cant really think of any films Ive seen with this storyline. Ive seen films with slaves, films with black bounty hunters, (Boss N*gger is the closest I guess) but nothing with that exact set up before.

I dont think anyone online should complain about something being unoriginal. So what if he uses Django as the title? How many reg film watchers even know who Django is anyway?

Chris Tucker as Django: I dont see him playing that part. Hes too much of a comedian. Plus he'll always be Beaumont to me. Its gotta be someone whos a serious actor. Will Smith: Aw hell no. Someone new/younger would be cool.

Tucker is 39 (Will Smith 43), so I don't think that he's too old by Hollywood male standards, he could easily pass as 10 years younger in the movie, but on the other hand most of the audiences would have serious prejudices about him in the leading hero role... I would also like some lesser known name myself, but with Waltz already in they're gonna have to put some big names in the cast if this is a big budget flick, maybe for the supposed "evil plantation owner"...

True, he has to have chemistry with Waltz. No one comes to mind right now.

Love the Dave Cappelle!

Harry Knowles:
I'm hoping a praying that Sam Jackson will play "Samuel the Basil Rathbone of House N*ggers"

So, sort of a black slave driver/overseer sucking up to his master if I understand the terminology?

LOL ;D

I think Sam playing this character is pretty certain, description is a big hint. BTW, here's Omar Doom's tweet:

"It's true, Quentin's new script is done. As is proven by the hairs on the back of my neck and my tearing eyes, it's a masterpiece."

Looking good...

Hold your horses gang, according to QT: NOONE HAS BEEN CAST YET, including Christoph.

So at this point there is no cast, just a script.

Get the news right from the QT himself:
