Waltz And Tarantino for Django Remake

Tarantino 300Quentin Tarantino is reportedly planning to remake spaghetti western Django and cast his Inglourious Basterds star Christoph Waltz in a lead role.

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.
