Flash! Quentin to make a movie

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - News -

Hold your breath and cross your fin­gers. It looks in­creas­ingly as if Quentin Tarantino’s Django Un­chained – un­like so many re­cent pro­posed films by the great man – will ac­tu­ally move into pro­duc­tion quite soon. It has emerged that Jamie Foxx is to take the lead in the tale of a freed slave who be­comes a con­tract killer. Other ac­tors cur­rently in the cor­ral in­clude Leonardo DiCaprio, Christoph Waltz and (you saw this com­ing) Sa­muel L Jack­son.

The film’s ti­tle ref­er­ences Ser­gio Cor­bucci’s cult 1966 spaghetti west­ern Django, which starred Franco Nero. Ex­pect blood on the sand and per­cus­sive clangs on the sound­track.
