A couple of pics of Foxx, Dicaprio (I want that waistcoat) and Waltz all in costume are up at IMDB

The pic of Waltz and Fox somehow reminds me of For A Few Dollars More, and the older-younger dynamic of Colonel Mortimer and The Man With No Name....
I might've thought that, but I was completely distracted by the fact that Jamie Foxx's outfit is exactly the same as Little Joe Cartwright's from Bonanza.



Even the hat band is the same.

At any rate, it doesn't hurt my interest since I enjoy a good Spaghetti Western.
Wouldn't surprise me if it was intentional. And well spotted!

Re: Django Unchained--Tarintino's new project

I wouldn't be surprised either if it was intentional. To me "Django Unchained" is like QT's ultimate homage to spaghetti westerns, and seems to be influenced by a number of different sources.

Re: Django Unchained--Tarintino's new project

His look is meant to be an homage to both Little Joe Cartwright from "Bonanza" and Elvis Presley in the western "Flaming Star."

Also there is evidently a song called "Django" by a jazz artist named Joe Cartwright

Thanks and yeah, it's too exact to be a coincidence and clearly homage as Benny says. I think Foxx wears it well.

Re: Django Unchained--Tarintino's new project

Here's a surprise; Kurt Russell has dropped out of the movie, meaning that whoever plays Woody will be the third actor linked to the role. I wonder is QT only considering actors who have played Wyatt Earp in the past?!

Sasha Baron Cohen has also had to drop out because of his promotional commitments for The Dictator.

What, was he surprised that his film is being released right now? Isn't that something they should have known in advance?
Anyway, I hope it doesn't delay Django, it's so rare that we get western nowadays and this one seems to be a good one as well.

Re: Django Unchained--Tarintino's new project

http://www.aintitcool.com/node/55588 According to this story, Russell's role won't be re-cast, but his character's role will basically be absorbed into that of the character played by Walton Goggins (The Shield, Justified).

SBC's role was apparently written with Jonah Hill in mind. And yes, his reason for bailing seems odd (apparently it's completely unconnected with Russell's exit).

Can't remember if this was posted or not but apparently Joseph Gordon-Levitt also left this movie, in order to make his directorial debut.

Re: Django Unchained--Tarintino's new project

^ Yup, he's in it and it looks like his role just got bigger.

Recasting or replacement has worked out well for QT in the past. Travolta replacing Michael Madsen for Pulp, Bruce Willis playing Butch over Matt Dillon, Samuel L Jackson instead of Lawrence Fishburne (I believe), David Carradine instead of Warren Beatty in Kill Bill, Kurt Russell instead of Mickey Rourke in Death Proof (okay, maybe not that one)

Re: Django Unchained--Tarintino's new project

The trailer has leaked online. Looks interesting.

Obviously one doesn't know whether the trailer music reflects the movie at all, but the switch from Johnny Cash to that 70s blaxploitation is certainly very Tarantino.

Re: Django Unchained--Tarintino's new project

It looks fucking fantastic. I completely marked out for "Inglorious Basterds" but this might just top that for me.
