Re: Django Unchained--Tarintino's new project

^ That's why I was so intrigued with wanting Smith to accept the role. I think it would have defied his current screen image and once again proven to his fanbase and critiques that he can do drama. Foxx will do a good job with this though I think. I'm very pleased with the casting overall so far.

Foxx is a good choice. Though I still would have preferred Elba.

Re: Django Unchained--Tarintino's new project

Another cast addition: Kevin Costner:
He's the sadistic trainer of the male fighting slaves who entertain the white patrons of Candyland as well as the female slaves who are forced to be prostitutes. The club and ranch are owned by Calvin Candie (DiCaprio) and Ace Woody is the one who pits the "mandingo" fighters against one another, and has little qualms about mistreating and even killing the slaves who don't measure up.
Bit of a change of pace for him.

Re: Django Unchained--Tarintino's new project

Wow. This film has really interesting casting. Costner is changing things up a bit which is only a good thing for him.

Re: Django Unchained--Tarintino's new project

^ Agreed. And Costner actually makes a pretty good villain. One of his best roles was in Clint Eastwood's A Perfect World - admittedly, he was kind of a villain with a heart of gold but it showed he can step outside his heroic box. And he got good reviews for Mr Brooks (which I haven't seen).

Could this part do for him what Pulp Fiction did for Travolta? Here's hoping!

Re: Django Unchained--Tarintino's new project

^ I was thinking the same thing. Between this and "Man of Steel" there is gonna be reason enough to be a Kevin Costner fan.

Re: Django Unchained--Tarintino's new project

^ These have been two very shrewd decisions on his part. Play a nice guy father figure that's perfectly moulded to his nice-guy image, a variation on his Field of Dreams role. In a major blockbuster, to boot. And then play an absolute bastard for a director known for getting the best out of actors, particularly when cast against type. A great double whammy.

I really can't see Will Smith doing a Tarantino movie - I can't imagine either would be up. Be bad for Will's squeaky-clean family man image and QT doesn't usually cast such big names in his movies (Brad Pitt in Basterds aside).
How about Bruce Willis in Pulp Fiction or Robert DeNiro in Jackie Brown?

^ Willis was on his uppers when PF was made, having had a few flops in a row. He needed it more than it needed him (his role was originally written for Matt Dillon). And DeNiro is a big name actor but not a box office superstar in the way that Smith is.

Re: Django Unchained--Tarintino's new project

More casting-

Jamie Foxx is Django (joining Christoph Waltz as Dr Schultz)
Leonardo DiCaprio is Calvin Candie, the main villain
Samuel L Jackson is Stephen, his main "house nigger" (don't look at me, that's what they're called in the dialogue) and right hand man

http://www.variety.com/article/VR1118042803

- that works! It was an SLJ kind of part... Foxx should work, DiCaprio will make an interesting CC, but it's Christoph Waltz and Dr Schultz that I'm already way hyped up about - it's a fantastic Lee Van Cleef type role and he'll be cool in it.

Re: Django Unchained--Tarintino's new project

Kevin Costner has dropped out due to scheduling conflicts. Shame, as this could've done for him what Pulp Fiction did for Travolta.

Quentin will probably get somebody like Jeff Fahey to replace him. Or better yet, Michael Parks. He was excellent in Red State.

^ I was thinking that Dennis Quaid would be a good Costner-sub. But yes, Quentin might go down the line of a lesser-known actor.
