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


#81

Will Smith will get people in the seats which considering the plotline it will be hard to get the general public (non-Tarantino fans) in. And you have to admit the idea of Will Smith and Samuel Jackson at odds with each other is intriguing esp when you throw in Waltz. Is it his best work Eh who cares even at his worst he is still more interesting than 80% of the filmakers working today. I’ll take the worst he has to offer over 90% of the films being produced today.

[quote=“Sebastian”]and with Smith they will bring Sony on board (actually vice versa, from a studio point of view), and I say it is about time Smith did some proper movies again. All he has been doing is one man shows and big budget half assed pop corn bullcrap, so I hope he will step up to the challenge and act out a Tarantino character. I am sure he can do it, the question is if he has the maturity and the balls for it. Who knows, it might be his oscar role[/quote]


according to Deadline Sony is on board now. Will Smith is still pondering ...

With Sony onboard I’m sure management can browbeat him into signing on :smiley:

Robert Knepper (T-Bag from Prison Break) has GOT to play Calvin Candie. He’d be PERFECT.

Ify: I agree with you on the friends casting too. That didnt help his last two films at all.



After reading the new script I can say that its one of QTs best as far as whats on the page. Its really not like anything hes done so far either. Its a western style adventure story set in the slavery era South during the 1800s. So no, People arent gonna be talking about Royales with Cheese and making references to Lee Marvin and Trix (haha). But I really enjoyed the way the people spoke in this story, and its neat to hear QTs take on that old fashioned wordplay. The way Id describe it is: if QT was a popular novel writer back then, this would be his new paperback western or southern. So as far as the dialogue/writing goes, its beautifully done. There were certain parts (very very few) that I wasnt completely thrilled by, but those things can always be worked out when theyre actually filmed.



Now how the film is cast/shot/scored etc is another thing. I really dont know if QT plans on making it a huge epic or a more medium sized piece, but I have no doubt it will be an exciting film when its all done. Its def got alot of juicy roles for actors to get into. I hope QT brings back some familiar faces along with new ones.



P.S. After hearing about Will Smith as Django I went back and read it again visualizing him talking/acting the part and it definitely worked great. As we know even if youre not a huge fan of an actor, just the fact theyre working with QT can make them seem 100% cooler to you.



If this does actually star Smith and Waltz, wow that will be very neat to see.

I’ve read about 50 pages now. I. Can’t. Fucking. Stop.

PS. QT wrote this the role of the Bounty Hunter with Waltz in his mind, that’s for sure.

Question for anybody who has read the script: (like Pete)



What FEEL does the script have? Is it more mature and serious / quasi-serious (like Ingourious Basterds) or is more easy-going and geek-ish, like many parts of Kill Bill?

Its definitely closer in tone/style to Basterds. Its like a blend of the spaghetti western/hixploitation/slave movie genres as seen through QTs eyes. But it really had to be more serious considering the racism aspect and the N word which is spoken freely throughout. That being said, it does still keep its adventure/bounty hunter edge and also has some scenes that are very funny. One in particular made me laugh out loud as I was reading it, just cuz of how QT wrote it. Its like a screwball comedy bit.


#91

omg, all of that sounds absolutely amazing.



but, is there really a slave movie genre? Other than Mandingo?


#92

Im getting a bit sick of Quentin Tarantino’s Jewish infested mind. I mean he’s so damn Liberal these days. What happened to the type of shit when he did Reservoir Dogs? I mean some of the shit in that movie about Jews is hillarious. Tarantino is basicly bowing down and sucking Jewish cock.

we get it, you hate jews. why don’t you go back to jerking off to the holocaust?



on topic: I’m really excited, finally a new movie! Does anyone know who might replace Sally as editor? This’ll be the first film he’s done without her…

Theres not alot of films in that genre but a few titles are: Drum, Skin Game, Puddin Head Wilson. Also ROOTs miniseries, which isnt a movie movie but still part of that genre. Also Goodbye Uncle Tom is more of a mondo movie, but thats completely about the sickening world of slavery.

SLIGHT SPOILER

Are you talking about the flour sacks scene, that one made me laugh out loud and I stopped reading there. But it felt kinda familiar, don’t know if it’s the KKK scene in “Fletch Lives” or something else…

What page?

This script is awesome. It’s true QT. The tension will get bigger and bigger towards the end. At the last hour of the film audience will shit their pants for the excitement.



The beginning is more fun (though it’s dramatic too) and the rest of the script is more drama and tension.



QT haven’t written script like this before.
