Christoph Waltz is in, Leonardo DiCaprio might be, and nobody knows yet whether Will Smith, Jamie Foxx, Idris Elba or another actor will take the role of Django, but what’s more certain is the release date.
According to Box Office Mojo Quentin Tarantino’s Django Unchained has been given a release date of December 25, 2012. Filming is scheduled to begin later this year, so all Tarantino needs to do is get the cast in place.
Here’s the synopsis for the movie (potential spoilers):
Django is a freed slave, who, under the tutelage of a German bounty hunter (played by Christopher Waltz the evil Nazi officer in Inglorious Basterds) becomes a bad-ass bounty hunter himself, and after assisting Waltz in taking down some bad guys for profit, is helped by Waltz in tracking down his slave wife and liberating her from an evil plantation owner.
