hi, i'm nuri. this is my fandom/everyday life tumblr. i talk a lot in tags and my posts are all over the place. ask is always open.

Showing posts tagged with “tarantino”

can’t even front like i’m not going to see this. even if qt’s version of slavery makes me want to claw my eyes out. i read the screenplay, and it just might. but still, going.

also preparing myself to be mad spoiled on it before seeing it because i somehow doubt it comes out christmas day in the uk. sadface.

  1. 'django is off the chain' is The Worst Tagline Possible for this. don't make me start clawing already, qt. please. just stick with 'life, liberty and the pursuit of vengeance.'
  2. i’m gonna need more kerry in the next trailer. let me see this “epic love story” they keep touting.

Kurt Russell replaces Kevin Costner in Django Unchained
We were more than a little disappointed when Kevin Costner left Quentin Tarantino’s Django Unchained a couple of weeks ago, but QT has recast someone even more awesome in the role: Kurt Russell.Yep, the former child actor and all-round ’80s icon will be playing Ace, a cruel SOB who runs Calvin Candie’s (Leonardo DiCaprio) plantation with an iron fist, making the lives of the slaves unbearable.

ohhhhhh this is perfect. having read the script, and having watched death proof 5 billion times, kurt is ace is kurt. yes.

so, i finally read the django unchained script on a flight today.

  • it’s good. i like it.
  • i’m not very familiar with spagetti westerns, actually i don’t like westerns in general, but i feel like this version with classic qt written all over it would be something i’d be really hype to see in the theater.
  • yes, the thought of seeing kerry washington doing all these graphic scenes leaves me gutted, but i still think she’d kill this role and hope she accepts it.
  • i, like many, was wondering why she had to be named broomhilda of all things. now that i’ve read and it’s been explained, i approve. i’m not a mythology buff in the least so i didn’t catch the reference beforehand.
  • jamie, christopher, leonardo and sam l. will all be great in this. i can’t wait until more of the cast is revealed.
  • i’m really interested to see how they handle the pony storyline. while i was reading, it all felt reminiscent of wench by dolen perkins valdez, a book i would love to see on screen. two very different perspectives, but both focusing on an aspect of slavery that’s not discussed much.
  • all in all, i can see much of this being uncomfortable to watch, but i don’t shy away from that type of movie experience. qt, you have me intrigued.

Jamie & Kerry Reunion Pending: Kerry Washington in Contention to Play Broomhilda in Tarantino’s ‘Django Unchained’

fyeahkerrywashington:

Variety has added a bit of news to the earlier report that Jamie Foxx will be playing the title character in Quentin Tarantino’s Django Unchained by reporting we may have a Ray reunion in which Kerry Washington would once again play Foxx’s wife.

In Django Unchained Foxx will play Django, a freed slave who seeks to reunite with Broomhilda, his slave wife, a journey which will see him team up with Dr. King Schultz (Christoph Waltz), a German bounty hunter, to take down Calvin Candie (Leonardo DiCaprio), an evil plantation owner. Samuel L. Jackson is expected to play Stephen, Candie’s right-hand man.

Variety reports Washington is “one of a handful in the mix” in contention for the role of Broomhilda. There is no word on any of the other actresses in contention.

Washington played Della Bea Robinson, wife to Ray Charles played by Jamie Foxx, in Taylor Hackford’s Ray in 2004. Should she be cast in Django Unchained it would be the second time the two worked together.

Washington will next be seen in The Details later this year.

i could care less about them playing husband and wife again, but damnit, I WANT TO SEE KERRY IN A QT FLICK.
