…And we’re back.
Apologies for the delay. Real life matters interrupted regular posting, but we’re back to reporting Django Unchained news again. With production starting this November, the news should be picking up quite a bit.
Rather than writing several single small updates, I’m cramming everything into one giant update. Here’s what has happened since the last post.
Django Unchained Cast Update
Kevin Costner has dropped out of the project due to scheduling conflicts.
Kurt Russell will be taking over Costner’s Role as Ace Woody.
Don Johnson, Tom Savini, and Gerald McRaney have joined the cast as villanious plantation owners whom, according to Variety, “meet Django and Schultz while in pursuit of a bounty.”
Michael K. Williams claims that Quentin Tarantino has written a supporting role in Django Unchained just for him. He also claims in the same interview that he was at one point considered for the lead role.
Dennis Christopher will play Calvin Candie’s lawyer.
M.C. Gainey, whose biggest role to date has been Mr. Friendly on Lost, has been cast as a rapist (link contains details about the role and possible spoilers).
Laura Cayoutte has signed on to play Calvin Candie’s sister.
Joseph Gordon-Levitt is in talks with Quentin Tarantino to join the Django Unchained cast. No word yet on what role he’ll play.
