Last year, Tarantino said: “I’d like to do a western, but rather than set it in Texas, have it in slavery times. With that subject that everybody is afraid to deal with. Let’s shine that light on ourselves.”
“You could do a ponderous history lesson of slaves escaping on the underground railroad or, you could make a movie that would be exciting. Do it as an adventure. A spaghetti western that takes place during that time.”
Despite being billed as a remake, Django by Tarantino could well turn out to be anything – simply because it’s by Tarantino. Keep your eyes peeled for more news.
