will feature critically acclaimed musical talents from television, film and Broadway playing a range of tunes from all of the favorite Tarantino classics such as Reservoir Dogs, Pulp Fiction, Jackie Brown, Kill Bill Vol. 1 & 2, Death Proof and Inglourious Basterds.
It’ll also be turned into a film and shown at SWSX in March of 2012.
Lots of new news about Django Unchained that I’m just now catching up on.
Jamie Foxx is the lead. Older rumors had initially pointed to Will Smith for this role.
Also, the planned release date for the film is Christmas Day 2012 – so not too far in the future.
Other casting rumors include Michael Williams (from The Wire), and Kevin Costner had to pass on a role due to scheduling conflicts.
Oh, Quentin. Yeeeh.com says “Quentin Tarantino Is A Toe Sucker”
The story of a girl who met QT at a party one night – complete with some photos.
Pulp Fiction edited down to just the cusswords.
Some casting rumors/news for Django Unchained. QT is pursuing Will Smith for the lead role.
Smith is being teed up for the title role of Django, a freed slave who seeks to reunite with his slave wife, a journey that will see him team with a German bounty hunter to take down an evil plantation owner.
Already all-but-attached to the film are Samuel L. Jackson (house slave) and Christop Waltz (bounty hunter).
So the wide-spread rumor is that the next Tarantino film will be Django Unchained – effectively what he has previously referred to as his ‘southern’ film. This film is going to somewhat be an homage to the 1966 film Django, directed by Sergio Corbucci with a bit of nod to 2007′s Sukiyaki Western Django from Takashi Miike. Tarantino played the role of Ringo in the Takashi Miike film.
Vanity Fair has more info, though everything at this stage in the development process is still subject to being changed.
