You first heard about it nearly a year ago, when Jamie Foxx joined the cast of the latest Quentin Tarantino project. Now you can glimpse the first photos from “Django Unchained.”
Foxx stars as the title character, a freed slave turned bounty hunter. With the help of his mentor, he sets his eyes on rescuing his wife, Broomhilda (played by Foxx’s former “Ray” costar, Kerry Washington) from an evil Mississippi plantation owner, Calvin Candie. Surprisingly, Candie is played by the typically “good guy” leading man, Leonardo DiCaprio.
The all star cast includes Sacha Baron Cohen, Kurt Russell, Christoph Waltz of Tarantino’s “Inglourious Basterds” and Samuel L. Jackson in practically every other Tarantino film. The few pictures are in the slideshow to the left and you won’t have to wait long for the first trailer as the buzz is that it will soon be released.
“Django” will hit some of the Best Baltimore theaters on Christmas Day 2012, from the Cinemark Egyptian in Anne Arundel to the AMC in White Marsh.
