I can’t speak for everyone, but I know I personally have been itching for a new Quentin Tarantino movie. “Inglorious Basterds” came out two years ago, and I need my fix.
The good news is that he’s working on it. The bad news is that it won’t start shooting until January, meaning it won’t come out for another 99 years after that. Sigh.
This “it” of which I speak is “Django Unchained,” a film about a freed slave who tracks down his wife (who is being held at a plantation) with the help of a bounty hunter.
Why am I babbling on about this? Because awesome people keep signing on to the project!
So far, Jamie Foxx is playing Django, Leo DiCaprio will star as the plantation owner, and the German bounty hunter will be played by Christoph Waltz. Yesterday, it was announced that Samuel L. Jackson will play a house slave.
With a cast and crew like this, all Tarantino needs to do now is somehow toss the Bear Jew into the equation and I’ll be one happy lady.
