CATEGORIES Movie NewsQuentin Tarantino has firmed up the cast for 'Django Unchained,' his spaghetti Western about a slave in the Old South who teams with a German bounty hunter to search for the slave's wife and take down an evil plantation owner. Jamie Foxx has been cast as Django and Leonardo DiCaprio will play Calvin Candie, the nasty plantation owner and all-around rotten guy. Already cast is Christoph Waltz as the dentist-turned–bounty hunter. As per Tarantino's reputation, 'Django Unchained' will be a bloody affair; The Hollywood Reporter reports that Waltz's character doesn't arrest the men he hunts down -- he kills them. And he teaches Django to do the same. The Weinstein Company will release the movie domestically.
Universal has tidied up the casting for Snow White's seven friends in the studio's revisionist take on the fairy tale. Yesterday we reported that Ian McShane, Eddie Izzard, Bob Hoskins and Toby Jones as well as Eddie Marsan and Stephen Graham had been cast as six of the seven dwarfs in the Rupert Sanders-directed 'Snow White and the Huntsman.' Now The Hollywood Reporter reports that Ray Winstone is in negotiations to round out the casting of the warrior dwarfs in the film that stars Kristen Stewart, Charlize Theron and Chris Hemsworth. The dwarfs are named after Roman emperors: Caesar, Claudius, Tiberius, Constantine, Nero, Trajan and Hadrian.
