Hmm... looks like Quentin Tarantino's much-anticipated project on his spaghetti western genre called DJANGO UNCHAINED is getting interesting. According to the exclusive report from The Hollywood Reporter's Heat Vision, Quentin Tarantino has favored over Will Smith to star in the movie about a slave in the Old South who teams with a German bounty hunter to search for his wife.
In addition to Will Smith, Samuel L. Jackson and Christoph Waltz are also included for respective key roles.
No official deal is made so far to Will Smith. And if he's agree to star, he will be securing the titular role of Django, a freed slave who seeks to reunite with his slave wife, a journey that will see him team with a German bounty hunter to take down an evil plantation owner.
According to insiders, Tarantino wrote the German bounty hunter part with Waltz in mind. The German ends up training Django and helping him seek his wife.
Jackson would play the house slave to the bad guy, Monsieur Calvin Candie. The slave is an expert manipulator and will face off with Django.
Smith and his representatives have received the screenplay, although it remains unclear whether he has read them or not.
If everything goes by the plan, Tarantino is expected to shoot his movie this fall in the South, possibly in Louisiana but the exact locale has not been confirmed yet.
