Default Quentin Tarantino's 'Django Unchained'

Quote:
Quentin Tarantino’s Next Film a Western Starring Christoph Waltz

Last week, in addition to finding that the full cut of Kill Bill complete with new anime sequence (aka Kill Bill: The Whole Bloody Affair) would play the New Beverly Cinema in March, there were whisperings that Quentin Tarantino is busy assembling his new film. At the time we didn’t have any real word about what the movie would be, but now Italian actor and one-time spaghetti western star Franco Nero says that he is involved in a western with Quentin Tarantino. Further reports say that the director’s next film is definitely a western, and that it will star breakout Inglourious Basterds star Christoph Waltz.

Franco Nero told Movieplayer (via The Playlist),

Quote:
My next project will be a western, but not in Italy. Here it is hard work. The film will be called The Angel, The Bad and The Wise* and is a tribute to Sergio Leone. It ‘s a movie that contains humor, lots of action, but also a great plot.

We have already been signed by a dozen people who will be part of project. Among the filmmakers involved include Quentin Tarantino, Keith Carradine, Treat Williams, fifteen people in all. Americans who want to do this movie and so we are trying to produce it outside of Italy.
(Those quotes are translated, so perhaps aren’t exact.)

But there’s more. At first we wondered if this might be something in which Quentin Tarantino might appear, aka Takashi Miike’s film Sukiyaki Western Django, rather than the film alluded to by Jeremy Smith of AICN last week when he said “Tarantino’s next project is quietly coming together behind the scenes. Hope to have something to report soon. I predict most people will be very happy with it.”

But Jeremy updated today with several points, chief among them a firm statement that Quentin Tarantino is making a spaghetti western and that it will feature Christoph Waltz. He can’t confirm the involvement of Franco Nero or any of the other actors mentioned in the quotes above. Finally, he says that title (The Angel, the Bad and the Wise) is totally wrong, and that even when you account for possible Google Translate mangling, the title “isn’t even close.”

No one has plot details yet, but the shoot is reportedly set for later this year in (contrary to Franco Nero’s statement) Italy and Spain. More on this as we get it.

Aint It Cools Story
Quote:
I still don't have all the pieces of the story (my Tarantino sources have been much more tight-lipped regarding this project than they were on INGLOURIOUS BASTERDS), but here are three things I can confirm: 1) Quentin Tarantino's next film is a spaghetti western, 2) Christoph Waltz is "one of the stars", and 3) that title is completely wrong (even if it got completely mangled by Google Translate, it's still not even close). I cannot confirm plot details at present (though I think I've got the premise).

As for Franco Nero, Keith Carradine and Treat Williams, this is the first I've heard of their involvement, but I'm inclined to believe they're in the mix since I've heard the plan is to shoot the film in Italy and Spain later this year. I've been pressing for confirmation since this morning, but have thus far received no responses to my emails.
It's probably too on the nose for Tarantino to cast Waltz as a German quick-draw artist ala Gerard Herter in Sergio Sollima's THE BIG GUNDOWN, right?

More updates as they (hopefully) come in...

The cast so far:

Jaimie Foxx as Django


Christoph Waltz as Dr. King Shultz


Samuel L. Jackson as Stephan


Leonardo DiCaprio as Calvin Candie


Kurt Russell as Ace Woody


Kerry Washington as Broomhilda

I'm greatly looking forward to this. I love Tarantino, Waltz, and westerns. This will be so awesome!

I know the article says this isn't the title, but for now that's what we know it is, so I posted the thread as that and will change the title when we find out the official name.

Although, I kinda like 'The Angel, The Bad, and The Wise'. It's kinda cool.

You think Q might write a Samurai into the story?
That'd be cool.

So sad that his long time editor Sally Menke passed away this year. I think that he should try to get Thelma Schoonmaker for his new editor.

Yeah, me too. I watched a documentary on film editing, and she and Tarantino had big parts in the doc. I'm going to miss their collaborations.

definitely pumped for this, since most of his movies have a heavy spaghetti western influence it should be amazing to see him actually work within the genre.

I know. I find it quite baffling how it took him a while to actually make a western.

Nice catch!

Even with this amount of information it's one of my most anticipated movies.

QT is one of the few director's who seems to be able to make what he wants with minimal compromise. If this continues, I'm sold.
