    A buddy & I were talking about this over the weekend while watching the slate of NFL games. Tarantino has wanted to do a spaghetti western for a long time & the "internets" says the script is done. Slashfilm.com says the Weinstein Company has it scheduled for release Christmas 2012.

    The story is supposed to take place during the slavery era of the US & it's supposed to have slaves participating in bare knuckle fighting for slave owners while helping other slaves escape. I've also read the story might also have to do with a former slave extracting revenge on his former master.

    Samuel Jackson is supposed to definately be in it but there have been all kinds of rumours as to who else will be in it ranging from Will Smith, Jamie Fox, Kevin Costner, Leonardo DiCaprio, & Christoph Waltz.

    I can't even imagine what this movie is going to be like...What do you guys think?

    Man, this is going to be really ill. He has a knack for putting together the craziest *%#. I heard Jamie Foxx wasn't officially hired yet that speculation was still premature. Apparently Tarantino really wants Will Smith for the lead. We'll see...

    I know one thing, the soundtrack is going to be tight. I wonder if he'll have Rza & Robert Rodriguez do it like he did with Kill Bill. This movie seems like it would be taylor made for those two to do again...

    He's definitely my favorite director. Then again, Pulp Fiction is my favorite movie of all time [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    According to Collider.com on a post that appeared 6/22/11, "For those unaware, Django Unchained centers on a freed slave (Foxx) who joins forces with a German bounty hunter (Waltz) as part of a plan to save the former’s love from an evil plantation owner (DiCaprio). The film is slated to hit theaters on December 25th, 2012." It says Will Smith passed on the role & Tarantino spoke to Idris Elba, Terrence Howard, and Chris Tucker before offering the gig to Foxx. The post appears here. Saw another post stating he's talked to Harvey Weinstein & relayed he would have a 3rd installment of Kill Bill for sometime in 2013...Interesting...

    I'm a huge fan of QT and all, but why a remake? He's good enough to have OG projects stand on their own. It's so easy for him to grab a previous idea, and swag it out.

    I don't see the problem with his opinion. Dude is overrated to say the least. Around this forum at least. There are by far better directors out there that have had a bigger impact on film than Tarantino. 
    If Tarantino is high up on your list of directors, thats cool, but don't be surprised when you don't see it on majority of peoples list.
