New Images from Quentin Tarantino's Django Unchained
05.29.12 by BJSprecher
Despite the somewhat troubling number of actors who accepted roles in Quentin Tarantino's latest movie, Django Unchained, only to drop out at the last minute — Kevin Costner, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Sacha Baron Cohen and Kurt Russell all exited due to "scheduling conflicts" — producer Harvey Weinstein last week promised that Tarantino's revenge-driven "Southern" (a "Spaghetti Western" set in the Deep South) may yet be "adding a couple of 'surprise' co-stars." Who those co-stars might be was anyone's guess until a new batch of images from the movie revealed that one of them is none other than the original "Django" himself, Italian actor Franco Nero, who starred in Sergio Corbucci's 1966 Spaghetti Western Django, which served, among other movies, as inspiration for Django Unchained.
