Title Of Quentin Tarantino’s Spaghetti Western Movie Revealed
  |  @   |  

Back in early March rumors began to swirl that Quentin Tarantino‘s next movie would be a spaghetti western — glorious news for any fan of the director’s work familiar with his many influences. The word was that his Inglourious Basterds star Christoph Waltz would be starring, and that the cast might also feature the likes of star Franco Nero, Keith Carradine, and Treat Williams.

Now a picture has been sent out via Twitter of what looks like the first page of Tarantino’s script, apparently confirming that the title of the new movie will be Django Unchained. This was later confirmed by IndieWire who contacted Tarantino’s agency about the image.

Also confirmed was Waltz’s inclusion in the cast, where he’ll team up with a former slave named Django to fight an evil plantation owner and save his wife. It has not yet been confirmed if Nero, star of the 1966 Sergio Corbucci-directed Django, Carradine, or Williams are also part of the cast or not.

The movie is said to be inspired by not only the ’66 Django, but also the fantastic 2007 Japanese remake of sorts from director Takashi Miike, Sukiyaki Western Django, which featured Tarantino in a small role.
