^ I didn't see you type that in your post about Tarrintino being a "controversial" directory. Sorry.

I tend to agree with you (even though I posted the Elba link). I would have thought someone like Lars Von Trier is more controversial these days.

I recall watching a latenight discussion show on the BBC when Reservoir Dogs came out, they were discussing increasing violence in films. One woman in the audience piped up that we were on a slippery slope and "how long before films like Reservoir dogs was shown on television?!"

The presenter indignantly slapped her down claiming that such a film would never be shown on British network television and that such an eventuality was not only unthinkable but ridiculous. It made its UK network debut, uncut, just 5 years later.

Amazing how fast mainstream attitudes have changed in such a short period of time. It's the same with so many things, all that is required to change people's life-long held opinions is exposure, and when the world doesn't collapse around them they just stop worrying about it.

Collider claims that Leo is entering talks to play the villain.

Re: Django Unchained--Tarintino's new project

The latest reports are that they may be looking to have Jamie Foxx play the part that has been suggested for Will Smith.

Foxx is a very good actor who's spent most of the time since winning the Oscar for Ray squandering his talent, so maybe Tarantino could get things back on track before he goes the full Cuba Gooding Jr.

Re: Django Unchained--Tarintino's new project

Foxx would be an excellent addition to the cast. The film also has a release date...Christmas Day 2012!

Re: Django Unchained--Tarintino's new project

Just read a rumor that both Will Smith and Jamie Foxx have passed on "Django Unchained". Not confirmed yet though. This kind of sucks if both of them have though.

Re: Django Unchained--Tarintino's new project

^ There are still plenty of talented African-American actors out there. And not getting his first choice has often worked out for QT. What if Michael Madsen had played Vincent or Matt Dillon Butch in Pulp Fiction, what if Warren Beatty had been Bill in Kill Bill?

I hear Tarantino really liked Terrence Howard after meeting him.

Good for him. Could be his first really worthwhile movie since Dreamgirls.

I think Foxx is a better fit for this than Smith (though it may have been interesting to see Smith defy his screen image, the way Travolta and Willis did with Pulp). Looking forward to this.
