Report: And Tarantino’s leading lady for “Django Unchained” is…

….Kerry Washington. Yep, she has been officially hired for Tarantino’s next flick, “Django Unchained”. She will play alongside Kurt Russell, Don Johnson and others in the flick. Kerry is most famous for her roles in “Save the Last Dance”, and “Ray”, in which she played Ray Charles wife in that film.

More on it, here.

Like the article says, Tarantino has always been well known to write strong characters for women over the years, and I agree. In some weird and creepy way, Tarantino is the best at writing characters for women. In every film he does, it’s the female character that makes you want to pay attention to the most. Like Uma Thurman in “Pulp Fiction”, and “Kill Bill”. Pam Grier in “Jackie Brown”, you can also add Melanie Laurent and Diane Kruger for “Inglourious Basterds”.

This Broomhilda character, for “Django Unchained”, will probably end up stealing the show than most characters.

Kerry Washington, is a freakin’ hottie, though. Wow, what a stunning beauty! Yes, I dig black women, I would even date one if I could.


Report: Kurt Russell to replace Kevin Costner for Tarantino’s “Django Unchained”…

Kurt Russell will re-team with Quentin Tarantino once again for, “Django Unchained”. Kevin Costner was going to play a role in, “Django” but was forced to pull out due to his hectic work schedule for, “Man of Steel”, in which Costner plays Jonathan Kent in the film.

More on the story, here.

Well, look like Kurt is definitely not going to be in, “The Expendables” sequel if he’s going to sign on to this. Maybe he will join the Expendables cast for a possible cameo, though, who knows. I would like Kurt to be part of the Expendables movie too, but it is pretty cool he is re-teaming with Tarantino again.


Report: Leo Dicaprio in negotiations to star in Quentin Tarantino’s next flick, “Django Unchained” as a villain…

Quentin Tarantino has been wanting to work with Leo Dicaprio for years, and looks like now he’ll finally be able to. Leo is getting close to a deal to star as the main villain for the spaghetti Western film, “Django Unchained”. Dicaprio will be playing an owner of a club called, Candyland, in Mississippi where he would treat women as slaves. He also has males pitted in “mandingo” style death matches.

It looks like Will Smith is not agreeing to star in this movie so far, so it looks like Will Smith will be out. Idris Elba, Chris Tucker and Jamie Foxx are backups in case Will does officially say “No”!

Read more here @ Deadline.

I hope Will Smith does back out ’cause I thought he was a bad choice anyway. If anything, I would like Jamie Foxx to star in it more. Jamie is very popular and he would sell the movie more than Will Smith, in my opinion.

I’m glad Leo will finally get to work with Quentin.

People maybe getting tired of Leo Dicaprio, I am too, but you can’t deny that Leo has been in so many great movies. I think Leo and Quentin would make a great team up.

Will Quentin get another chance at the Oscars for this film, “Django Unchained”? Too early to tell but we’ll wait and see how the movie looks first.


Report: Will Smith and Quentin Tarantino to team up for the first time for “Django Unchained”???

The iconic film director, Quentin Tarantino, finally announced his next film that he just wrote and will direct for the big screen. His next film is titled, “Django Unchained” which will be a western film. Tarantino wants Will Smith to star in the leading role. Tarantino describes that this movie will be a popcorn and revenge flick. This will be the follow up film from 2009’s, “Inglourious Basterds”.

Christoph Waltz who won an Oscar from “Inglourious Basterds”, is set to re-team with Tarantino by having a role for, “Django Unchained”. Samuel L. Jackson is also in negotiations to have a role in the film too.

More  on the story, here.

While I’m a huge fan of Tarantino movies, I love them all, I just don’t like Will Smith too much. I find Will Smith overrated as hell and his acting doesn’t grab me at all. I’ll see it in theater if I like the trailer enough. If not, then it will be a wait for DVD thing. I expect this movie “Django Unchained” to be 2 1/2 – 3 hours long. Everyone knows most Tarantino movies are very long films. What’s amazing about Tarantino’s work, is that even if the films are long, they won’t seem that long when you actually watch it because of the film’s pacing. His movies usually go by pretty fast. I expect the same will happen with this flick.

The sad thing is, that Sally Menke, Tarantino’s longtime editor won’t be a part of this film because of her death obviously. So the editing style maybe a little different with a different editor.


Report: Quentin Tarantino wrote new zombie film, Eli Roth will direct it…

Quentin Tarantino exclusively revealed on his twitter page that he just wrote a zombie horror film titled, “The Night The Dead Walked”. He also announced that Eli Roth will direct the film. This is really Tarantino’s twitter page, ’cause only he can get out the script he just put out for the public. Go to his twitter and download the script, “The Night the Dead Walked”. The script is over 30 pages long, it’s only a preview, not the entire film. Give it a read, it’s pretty good.

Tarantino’s twitter page.

As you can see, he gave me a “retweet” after giving him feedback on his work. Tarantino is no stranger to writing scripts in the horror genre. “From Dusk ‘Til Dawn” anyone? He wrote and starred in “From Dusk to Dawn” along with George Clooney, Tarantino didn’t direct “Dawn” though, Robert Rodriguez did.

Looking forward to seeing, “The Night the Dead Walked”. I’m a big Tarantino fan, I follow everything he does.


RIP: Sally Menke 1953 – 2010

Sally Menke, is a well known and popular film editor, most famous for her work with, Quentin Tarantino. She edited pretty much all of Tarantino’s films including, “Inglourious Basterds” and the two, “Kill Bill” movies. She was also the editor of the very first, “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” movie, released in 1990. Sally Menke, went hiking with her dog, in Griffith Park in Los Angeles last Monday afternoon. Police found her body in a ravine. Her friends contacted police after worrying that she didn’t come back home. Her dog is alive and well. The cause of death is not known at this time but it is under investigation. The Hollywood Reporter, reports. My condolences go out to Quentin, her friends & family. Quentin’s gotta be heartbroken and devastated over this. RIP, Sally.


Report: Lady Gaga to star the lead in Quentin Tarantino’s romantic/comedy film?

Remember the report that Quentin Tarantino has plans to make a romantic comedy film next? Well look like, Tarantino has already started casting. Pop star, Lady Gaga, is in talks to star the leading role in Quentin Tarantino’s next film. The article fails to say what movie it is, but I assume that it’s Tarantino’s romantic comedy film that he’s planning.

This shows that it is a possibility that John Travolta could be re-teaming with Tarantino but could it be this movie? Get the clue, Lady Gaga has something to do with song and dance, so does John Travolta. John is also a singer and dancer. Are we going to see a John Travolta and Lady Gaga dance scene for the next film? I wouldn’t be surprised that John Travolta could get the male lead, and you shouldn’t be surprised either.

This would be a great acting comeback for John too, to work with Tarantino again.



Report: Tarantino wants to go romantic…

Look like Quentin Tarantino is finally tired of doing action comedy “Pulp Fiction” like movies and wants to try something different for a change. Tarantino revealed he wants to try writing and directing, a romantic comedy. He plans to work on that next now that he’s done with, “Inglourious Basterds”.

Glad Tarantino is making a full time comeback to Hollywood. Before “Inglourious Basterds”, he took a hiatus from Hollywood to concentrate writing the script for that film. Now that he’s finally back, expect a lot more Quentin Tarantino movies up ahead.

Since he’s doing a romantic comedy, expect a lot of foot fetish scenes. Also, expect a role for Uma Thurman too. Maybe John Travolta will get in on this film ’cause Travolta has a lot of comedy film experience. John Travolta and Uma Thurman to team up again? Wouldn’t surprise me if that’s what Tarantino is going for. Tarantino is a pretty sexual guy when it comes to writing his scripts. Maybe he’ll have female nudity this time around. Definitely a lot of swearing and cussing like every Tarantino film has.

I think he’s going for a fanbase for the ladies. A Tarantino chick flick this time? Sounds like he needs John Travolta for this one. If John Travolta agrees to return to acting again, I’d like to see him reteam wtih Tarantino.



Report: Quentin Tarantino admits he won’t win Oscar for Best Director, and predicts Kathryn Bigelow will win it instead…

Tarantino, speaks out his prediction for the Oscars. Tarantino says he has a very good chance in winning an Oscar for “Best Screenplay” or “Best Picture”, but he says he definitely won’t get one for “Best Director”. He thinks the “Best Director” award will go straight to Kathryn Bigelow, director of the war film, “The Hurt Locker”.


I actually agree with Tarantino’s prediction but I have this bad feeling that James Cameron will wind up getting everything again like he did for “Titanic”. I know a lot of people don’t want to see it happening, but sad to say, it probably will be James Cameron’s year again.

I hope Kathryn wins for “Best Director” or even better “Best Picture”, ’cause “The Hurt Locker” in my opinion, is the best film out of all the “Best Picture” nominations.


Thought: Sorry, but James Cameron does NOT deserve the Oscar spotlight this year….Kathryn Bigelow deserves it more!!!

I’ve said it once before and will say it again! “Avatar” was okay, but nothing amazing or all that special! “Avatar” IS NOT Oscar worthy. Although I have a feeling that James Cameron will once again sweep everything, money and power will do that, I think it’s safe to say that Kathryn Bigelow deserves the Oscar spotlight more than anything else that’s out now.

“The Hurt Locker” is such an amazing, and phenomenal movie. Everything about “The Hurt Locker”, is so perfect. The filming, the writing, the acting, etc. All of it.

Quentin Tarantino for “Inglourious Basterds” would be my 2nd choice to get the Oscar spotlight.

James Cameron doesn’t even belong in it. “The Hurt Locker” is one of the best new war movies I’ve seen in a long time. If James Cameron didn’t release “Avatar” and waited longer, I’m sure Tarantino or Bigelow would get their chance instead.

Oscar nominations will be revealed next Tuesday so it might be a little different than the Golden Globes. If “Avatar” doesn’t win for “Best Picture” this year and something else wins, I’ll be shocked and happy. It’s most likely this will be James Cameron’s year again.
