Quentin Tarantino’s “Django Unchained” gets release date


By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Quentin Tarantino’s planned spaghetti Western doesn’t have a cast or a polished script … but it reportedly has a release date.

The Weinstein Company already has circled Dec. 25, 2012 for Tarantino’s “Django Unchained,” the story of a former American slave who forms an uneasy partnership with a German bounty hunter to rescue his wife from a wicked plantation owner, ComingSoon.net is reporting.

Most of the news surrounding “Django” since Tarantino leaked his handwritten script has detailed casting rumors. At one point, Will Smith was being considered for the part of Django, though that rumor hasn’t materialized. CS says Leonardo DiCaprio is “in final talks” to play the plantation owner, while Tarantino’s “Inglourious Basterds” standout Christoph Waltz “is expected” to play the bounty hunter.

The site adds that longtime Tarantino collaborator Samuel L. Jackson will appear in the film, though likely not as Django, who may be played by Idris Elba.

What do you think? Is “Django” a Christmas movie? Does the release date put pressure on Tarantino to get the wheels spinning, or is it a sign that most of the ducks are in a row, and “Unchained” will be shooting shortly?
