The title of Quentin Tarantino's next movie?

04.30.2011

DJANGO UNCHAINED.

That's according to a pic of the purported script posted by twitter user @AgentTrainee, who presumably is an agent trainee (...) with access to such material.

The title has since been verified, and would certainly make sense. We've known of Tarantino's love for spaghetti westerns and his intention to make one (and yes, he does hand-scrawl the title pages for his scripts).

And earlier in the year, actor Franco Nero (star of the original DJANGO) claimed he would be working with the filmmaker on a "tribute to Sergio Leone". Tarantino's INGLOURIOUS BASTERDS villain Christoph Waltz will also reportedly have a part, along with Keith Carradine and Treat Williams.

Back in February 2010, Tarantino had this to say: "I'd like to do a Western. But rather than set it in Texas, have it in slavery times. With that subject that everybody is afraid to deal with. Let's shine that light on ourselves. You could do a ponderous history lesson of slaves escaping on the Underground Railroad. Or, you could make a movie that would be exciting. Do it as an adventure. A spaghetti Western that takes place during that time. And I would call it 'A Southern.'"

According to AICN's ace reporter Mr. Beaks in an update a few months ago, Tarantino plans to shoot the movie in Italy and Spain later this year.

The first DJANGO in 1966 influenced dozens of films and spawned unofficial sequels and spinoffs (including a remake by Japanese filmmaker Takashi Miike, which featured QT himself). Euro-horror director Sergio Corbucci switched to noodle-westerns for the vicious flick with recurring outlaw Franco Nero as the enigmatic stranger of the title. What's different about this guy (besides his catchy theme music) is that he drags around a coffin containing a belt-fed machinegun. While playing rival gangs against each other, Django paints the muddy town a vivid shade of crimson thanks to his ferocious lead-spitting friend he keeps in the casket, racking up a body count to rival the 80s output of Stallone and Schwarzenegger.

So the Bride's hitlist was written by Tarentino himself, I guess? The penmanship is identical.

QT does not Borrow, he steals.

Give me a little bit more information about this project so I can discover the old original movie QT plan's to rip off this time around. Not saying I dislike QT at all. I loved Pulp fiction even though Roger Avary made it make sense. True Romance and Natural Born killers were both well written and original works by QT (he did not direct them). But since, QT's recent work -Kill Bill- and the very movie that made him famous -Reservoir Dogs- were all rip offs. I am really hoping he actually

Tarantino making a spaghetti western with Franco Nero and Christoph Waltz that deals with slavery in the U.S?

I want to see this NOW. Please let this not just be a baseless rumor or another one of QT's ideas that never goes anywhere.

It's an okay title. I think just "UNCHAINED" would probably be a better one, though. That being said, I'll be there day one no matter what it's called

working at a video store isn't getting a start working in film making. otherwise working at Rite Aid would be too than simply because they sell dvd's as well.

Don't be an asshole. It is well known that Tarantino considers his years as the Video Archives as part of his "education" on films and film-making.

Say what you want about Tarantino, his movies/writing takes risks(for better or worse) with some of the best dialogue and tension in the business. looking forward to it.

I'm down for anything this guy does. I'm sure a good portion of the people who hate on him for using homage too much enjoy hip hop music which samples stuff almost exclusively nowadays it seems.

Paul's Boutique is one of the best albums ever, and all it does is take beats and riffs from classic rock tracks. Doesn't make it any less valid as an artform.

If he does it authentic, it could be good, but i hate Treat Williams so much, beginning with his name and going from there.

It's funny how if a movie is generally considered a very good film but if someone doesn't like it, they say it's either pretentious or overrated. They can't just say it wasn't their cup of tea. But i'm sure your the overall authority on movies and saw something in the movie no one else did. You sound pretty pretentious to me now that i think about it.

I agree with a lot of you guys, I'm not lovin' the title either. But if that is actually gonna be the title then that's Tarantino's 7th film title (I refuse to count Kill Bill as 2 separate movies) that contains 2 words.

Reservoir Dogs
Pulp Fiction
Jackie Brown
Kill Bill
Death Proof
Inglourious Basterds
Django Unchained

Coincidence is an explanation but 7 out of 7 is hard to dispute.

I agree with Mr.Moose,
QT's movies stopped being entertaining for me after Kill Bill. His inability to create something original without piecing, BLATANTLY, ideas together from other classics is getting old and dull. bastards was straight up fucking pretentious and boring.

I'm as exited about QT's "southern" as much as anybody, but really? Django Unchained? That is far too on the nose. I know Django is thrown into dozens of spaghetti westerns but the meta title crosses the line into jerk-off fanboy waxing. He just made a movie with a title incorporating another cult film, and even Jackie Brown was a little too much of a wink at Foxy Brown... what's next? QT presents: "Strike of a Rolling Thunder"? "Behind the Yellow Door"?, "My Name is Nobady" (misspelled for

As nice as it might be to se Tarantino attempt a straight-up western, I can almost guarantee it will be the other side of the coin from "True Grit." The Coens did their bet to stay well away from spaghetti-western trappings. Tarantino loves that shit. So, more Leone, Corbucci, trash-western, less old-school traditional. But I doubt anythin as crazy-bad as Wild Wild West.

True Grit was the most real western I have seen in many years, it seemed to have been filmed back in those olden times. I do expect lots of spaghetti from Quentin, but I bet he can make the film look about as real period-wise as the Cohens did, unlike other recent cowboy attempts, like Yuma and Seraphim Falls.

As Django fan, I think that if he's gonna use Django title, make it an actual Django movie! Not just borrowing the title, and then making something else. Nero returning as old, retired Django, who must dig up his old, trusty machine gun once again. I would go for that.

I tend to love Tarantino movies, particularly how he takes cues from the B-grade pulp and still manageds to turn out usually A-grade entertainment. But while this may be a fine addition, I'm not crazy about possibly name-dropping Django yet again. I'm not that thrilled he's filming in Spain ant Italy, but I understand why he might want to, since that's where so many westerns of the late '60s were made (even a few American westerns). I do like the idea of setting it during slavery, because that

I do like the idea of setting it during slavery, because that remains a largely unexplored subject in westerns. It kind of pre-dates most of the legends of the west. But anyway, even with Franco Nero, I hope he drops the Django title. It's just too specific. Then again, I had all sorts of qualms about Inglorious Basterds when it was being made, and in the end it turned out to be my favorite Tarantino film since Jackie Brown.
