Anybody make it to the Django Unchained chat at the UNO Film Festival this weekend?
…but not to the public. Sorry to disappoint.
Something to keep an eye out for: there is apparently a 10 minute scene from Django Unchained on the loose meant for international buyers. Since everything ends up on the internet these days, maybe we’ll get lucky with this scene.
The Weinstein Company are showing off a 10-minute scene from Quentin Tarantino’s “Django Unchained” to prospective international buyers. It sounds feasible. ‘Django’ has been lensing since early in the year, and what appears to be the last leg of the shoot is happening now-ish in New Orleans.
On the heels of the news that Kurt Russell had dropped out of Django Unchained, comes word that Walton Goggins of The Shield fame has been named to play his role.
Sad to see that Kurt Russell and Sasha Baron Cohen have both dropped out of Django Unchained. I dont recall what Cohen’s role was (I’ve seen it described as a cameo), but Russell’s was fairly small – a single scene.

Our first official photos from the Django Unchained filming have arrived.
The first pic shows Leo DiCaprio as Calvin Candie with Kerry Washington as Broomhilda in the background.
The second pic shows Christoph Waltz as Dr. King Shultz and Jamie Foxx as Django.
Going to be doing some more shooting in LA after they finish up in Louisiana.
Here’s the details:
Seeking performers who match the following: African American, natural hair, natural bodies, should be thin to athletic. This is set in the 1800′s so you can’t have modern day tattoos/ piercings/ etc. MUST BE OK PLAYING A SLAVE IN THIS SEQUENCE.
An article about the ABC TV show “Scandal” that starts Kerry Washington. Kerry plays Broomhilda in the upcoming Django Unchained.
We finally have an official website for Django Unchained.
Some more specific filming location news for Django Unchained in Louisiana.
