Academy Award winner Christoph Waltz is on the set of the new Quentin Tarantino written and directed Django Unchained. Filming has been taking place in many different states; including California, Louisiana and Wyoming.
Former dentist, Dr. King Schultz (Waltz), buys the freedom of a slave, Django (Jaime Foxx), and trains him to become his deputy bounty hunter. Instead, he is led to the site of Django's wife (Kerry Washington) whi is under the hands of Calvin Candie (Leonardo DiCaprio), a ruthless plantation owner.
Django Unchained sounds like it's going to be pretty intense. Leo as a bad guy? I'm not sure how I feel about that, but if Cristoph's performance is anywhere close to the last time he worked for Tarantino (Inglourious Basterds), it should be an amazing movie. After taking a look at the rest of the star studded cast you may get even more excited: Leonardo DiCaprio, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Sacha Baron Cohen, Samuel L. Jackson, Kurt Russell, Kerry Washington, Jamie Foxx, the RZA and even Don Johnson.
Django Unchained is scheduled for a Christmas Day 2012 release date, so don't get too excited just yet. We still have to wait.
