(via CNN ENTERTAINMENT) At the L.A. premiere of Horrible Bosses last week, actor Jamie Foxx shared his thoughts on his upcoming project Django Unchained. Written and (soon to be) directed by Quentin Tarantino, Foxx will play Django, a freed slave who with the help of German bounty hunter (Christopher Waltz), sets off on a mission of revenge to rescue his lady love Broomhilda, from the clutches of evil plantation owner Calvin Candle (Leonardo DiCaprio). Samuel Jackson will play Stephen, Candle’s right hand man.
On being cast in the titular role, Foxx told CNN: “I think, just to be able to work with Quentin Tarantino and Samuel Jackson, Leonardo DiCaprio, and to be able to tell a story that needs to be told. If you’re a fan of Inglorious Basterds, I mean, you know.. It’s just amazing. It should be [an] amazing [thing].”
Django Unchained is slated for a Christmas 2012 release.
