Kurt Russell is in contract talks to play the villain Ace Woody in the film. As we reported last month, Kevin Costner was slated to play Ace but bowed out, leaving the door open for Russell to walk in.

The movie gains a cast member and loses another one.
Who's new to the cast of Django Unchained is former Deadwood cast member Gerald McRaney, so he has some experience working in the wild west. Gone from the mix is Kevin Costner who is busy starring in the new Superman movie Man of Steel, now filming in Vancouver, Canada.- Variety. Comment on this Scoop (0)

After he plays the Man of Steel's adoptive father, Kevin Costner is likely to play a part in Tarantino's new revenge flick. The sandy-haired Field of Dreams star is in talks to play Ace Woody, the ranch manager who oversees the black slaves that must fight each other to the death. It's a brutal role and Woody is a real villain in Django Unchained, a character type that Costner usually shies away from playing.- Deadline. Comment on this Scoop (0)

Quentin Tarantino wants Will Smith to saddle up and star in his latest film, Django Unchained, says The Hollywood Reporter. Written and to be directed by Tarantino, Django is a spaghetti Western set in the Old South. Smith would play a slave who teams with a German bounty hunter to find his slave wife and take down the evil plantation owner who owns her. Last week, Tarantino's agency WME confirmed that Tarantino had turned in the final draft to the Weinstein Company.
Although QT prefers Smith as his hero, no official offer has been made. Smith has received the script, but it’s unknown if he’s read it yet. The film is expected to be controversial, as it deals with racism head-on and has Tarantino’s usual liberal use of the N word.
Tarantino is also talking to a couple of actors from his previous films for roles: Samuel L. Jackson and Christoph Waltz. QT wrote the part of the German bounty hunter with Waltz in mind. Jackson would play the house slave to the plantation owner. Tarantino hopes to shoot in the South this fall.
Tarantino.info, who scored the exclusive photo of the script's cover page above, has a nice write-up on the original Django film as well as a recent similarly titled filmby Takashi Miike in which Tarantino cameo'd.- The Hollywood Reporter, Tarantino.info. Comment on this Scoop (0)
