He will play a balding (probably) slave trainer.
It will be interesting to see how he channels “In Living Color”s Wanda to prepare for this role.
Finally, a slavery movie fit for the holidays.
DiCaprio is now entering actual talks to play Calvin Candie, the ruthless slave owner who could use a big dose of vitamin comeuppance.
We won’t believe it until we hear it from the horse’s jittery, fast-talking mouth.
Is Idris Elba ‘Django Unchained’?
After ‘Wild Wild West’, I thought the Western genre put a restraining order on Will Smith. If it did, nobody told Quentin Tarantino.

Yesterday, several of Quentin Tarantino’s friends gathered in New York for lunch to roast the director in only a way that the Friars Club can. They all gave Tarantino sh*t about his face, cadence, use of language, and supposed foot fetish.
Quentin Tarantino's long time editor Sally Menke was found dead at 56 years old in Beachwood Canyon in Los Angeles. Not all the details are in yet, but Menke apparently went for a hike yesterday in the 113 degree weather with her dog and when she didn't return her friends got worried. The police searched the area and found her body in a ravine.
Menke has collaborated with Tarantino since Reservoir Dogs and undoubtedly helped establish the director's unique style. I'd even go so far as to say she's the reason we see twenty minute scenes in his films instead of 120 minute scenes. Will another editor be able to reign Tarantino in? Only time will tell. Our thoughts are with Sally's family and whomever is blotting the tears off of Tarantino's chin. (LATimes)
Grindhouse has already been responsible for two spin-off films: Machete and Hobo with a Shotgun. Now Eli Roth has confirmed that he will bring that total to three with a full-length adaptation of his Grindhouse trailer, Thanksgiving.
I’ve been working on the script with my co-writer, Jeff Rendell, who plays the pilgrim in the trailer. And it’s me imitating Jeff’s voice [for the narration]. But Jeff has been working. I said that his deal is he has to work on the script while I’m promoting The Last Exorcism, and as soon as I’m done in mid-September he’s going to fly to California, we’re going to sit down, and bang out the script.
I guess it shouldn't be surprising that most of these trailers are being turned into features. Hollywood is already scraping the bottom of the barrel with adaptations of friggen boardgames. Thanksgiving looks like Citizen Kane in comparison. (Cinema Blend)
How could you be mean to this punim?They've done it to Pam Anderson, they've done it to William Shatner, and now the time has come for Quentin Tarantino to endure their wrath. On October 1 at the New York Hilton, The Friars Club will exploit Tarantino's shortcomings and almost certainly mention the words "Badrock; Bazooka; Benzoylethylecgonine; Benzoylmethylecgonine; Bernice; Bernies; Beta-Cocain; Blast; Blizzard; Blow; Bouncing Powder; Bump; Burese; C" Carrie; Cabello; Candy; Carrie; Caviar; Cecil; Charlie; Chicken Scratch; Cholly; COC; Coca; Cocain; Cocaina; Cocaine Free Base; Cocaine, L-; Cocaine-M; Cocktail; Coke; Cola; Corine; D-pseudococaine; Dama Blanca; Delcaine; Depsococaine; Dextrocaine; Dust; Ecgonine, Methyl Ester, Benzoate; Eritroxilina; Erytroxylin; Flake; Flex; Florida Snow; Foo Foo; Freeze; G-Rock; Girl; Gold Dust; Goofball; Green Gold; Happy Dust; Happy Powder; Happy Trails; Heaven; Hell; Isocaine; Isococain; Isococaine; Jam; Kibbles N' Bits; Kokain; Kokan; Kokayeen; L-Cocain; L-Cocaine; Lady; Leaf; Line; Methyl Benzoylecgonine; Moonrocks; Neurocaine; None; Nose Candy; Pimp's Drug; Prime Time; Rock; Sleighride; Snort; Snow; Star Dust; Star-Spangled Powder; Sugar; Sweet Stuff; Toke; Toot; Trails; White Girl or Lady; Yeyo; Zip" during a good ol' fashioned roast. Comedy Central has aired the specials in the past, but hasn't yet signed on for Tarantino's jittery jamboree of insults. (Variety)
Is Quentin Tarantino scouting Eastern European locations for a possible vampire film? If unsubstantiated stories running in two different Romanian tabloids are to be believed (which they almost certainly should be), then the answer is a resounding "yes."According to Dread Central, said tabloids are reporting that Tarantino will soon be in Vienna, a gateway to Eastern European travel, in order to inspect various castles for use in a Dracula project. Again, this is little more than a rumor, and Tarantino could be visiting as nothing more than a tourist, or perhaps even a sex tourist. Who's to say? But given that it's 3:00 AM, and I have one last article to publish before I can go to bed, I choose to believe that this story has legs.
The prequel should be an adaptation of this image.A prequel of Jackie Brown has been written based off the novel The Switch by Elmore Leonard, which is a prequel to his novel Rum Punch, the book Quentin Tarantino read and then disregarded when making Jackie Brown. Tarantino has given his blessing on The Switch, but is not involved, so that means the source material probably won't get completely bitch-slapped. Dan Schechter wrote the screenplay and the search for a director and cast is about to begin. Jackie Brown characters Ordell Robbie (Samuel L. Jackson) and Louis Gara (Robert De Niro) originated from The Switch, but Tarantino decided to focus on sassy Jackie and Motown music when he made his film. The prequel will follow young Ordell and Louis who, after hitting it off in prison, decide to kidnap the wife of a wealthy land developer and hold her for ransom. The twist? He doesn't want his wife back! This mashup of Overboard and Ernest Goes to Camp through the adapted eyes of Elmore Leonard is sure to be a… Nope, that word doesn't exist. (JoBlo)
