Quentin Tarantino praises 'cowboy' Jamie Foxx

Nov 19 2012, 12:06am CST | by

Quentin Tarantino thought it was a no brainer to cast Jamie Foxx in his new western 'Django Unchained'.

Quentin Tarantino cast Jamie Foxx in 'Django Unchained' because he was a real ''cowboy''.
The 'Kill Bill' director immediately called off auditions for his gun-wielding western as soon as he met Jamie since he fit the lead role perfectly - and even had his own horse.
Quentin told Playboy magazine: ''I met six different actors and had extensive meetings with all of them, and I went in-depth on all of their work. Idris Elba, Chris Tucker, Terrence Howard, M.K. Williams Tyrese. They all appreciated the material, and I was going to put them through the paces, make them go off against one another and kind of put up an obstacle course.
''And then I met Jamie and realized I didn't need to do that. He was the cowboy... Forget the fact that he has his own horse - and that is actually his horse in the movie. He's from Texas; he understands... He understood what it's like to be thought of as an 'other.'''
Will Smith was also a close contender for the role of Django, a freed slave who treks across America on a revenge mission, but the director and the funnyman came to the agreement he wasn't ''100 per cent right'' for the part.
Quentin added: ''We spent quite a few hours together over a weekend when he was in New York doing 'Men in Black III'. I think half the process was an excuse for us to hang out and spend time with one another. It just wasn't 100 per cent right, and we didn't have time to try to make it that way.''
'Django Unchained' opens in the UK on 18 January 2013 and also stars Leonardo DiCaprio and Samuel L. Jackson.

Find Out Where You Can See INTERSTELLAR in 70mm IMAX and 35mm

Oct 1 2014 11:53am CDT | Source: Collider

It’s no secret that Christopher Nolan is a very big proponent of film as opposed to digital.  His preference goes beyond the shooting of the movie to the actual projection, and not unlike Quentin Tarantino, Nolan very much prefers that you see his movies projected on film.  Today, Paramount released the final trailer for Nolan’s sci-fi epic Interstellar and also confirmed what we heard last night, which is that the film will be opening two days early on 75mm IMA ...

THE HATEFUL EIGHT Will Shoot Entirely in Colorado Starting on December 8th

Sep 26 2014 4:54pm CDT | Source: Collider

I have resisted the temptation to read the script for The Hateful Eight and have even avoided the recaps of the live staging that was held of the piece a few months ago in Los Angeles.  So it's encouraging that we're getting this new Quentin Tarantino movie a lot earlier than we thought we might.  We're now learning that the film will shoot outside of Telluride, Colorado and that everything - interiors and exteriors alike - will be lensed in the state.  Th ...

VOTD: Zack Snyder Loves Slow Motion

Sep 26 2014 8:00am CDT | Source: Slash Film

Love Zack Snyder or hate him, it’s hard to deny he’s got a distinctive visual style. (Indeed, detractors often argue that’s his problem — that he’s nothing but style.) And one of his very favorite go-tos from his bag of tricks is tweaking the pace of the action onscreen. Dude loves himself some slow-mo, as demonstrated by this new supercut. He loves it so much, the video is even set to Emily Browning‘s slowed-down version o ...

‘The Guest’ Is a Fun ’80s Throwback With Sci-Fi and Stalker Sprinkles on Top [Movie Review]

Sep 18 2014 8:00pm CDT | Source: slash film

Update from editor Peter Sciretta: The following review was published by Germain Lussier on January 19th 2014 from the 2014 Sundance Film Festival. The movie is out in theaters this week: The films by director Adam Wingard and writer Simon Barrett always have one thing in common. They are obviously influenced by an intense passion for movies, but are not overtly obvious about referencing those movies. In that sense, The Guest might feel like something you’ve seen before. It’s got ...

Exclusive: Two Psychedelic Alternative Posters for ‘The Guest’

Sep 12 2014 3:00pm CDT | Source: Slash Film

This Wednesday, September 17, one of the coolest films of the year is coming to select theaters. That movie is The Guest, the latest film from the team behind You’re Next, and it is a “fun ’80s throwback with sci-fi and stalker sprinkles on top.” That’s what I said at Sundance, where the film premiered. Now, nine months later, you can finally see what all the fuss is about. Directed by Adam Wingard, The Guest stars Downton Abbey‘s Dan Stevens as a soldier returning home for war. ...

BBC Edited Out A Pretty Horrible Scene In Upcoming Episode Of Doctor Who

Sep 5 2014 7:09pm CDT | Source: movie pilot

BBC and everyone involved with Doctor Who must be breathing a sigh of relief that the episode titled "Robot of Sherwood" is airing this week, and not last. The timing of the episode allowed for BBC to edit out a potentially disastrous scene from a PR perspective. The climactic battle between Robin Hood and the Sheriff features a decapitation - fairly gruesome at the best of times, but an even more horribly mistimed scene right now in the wake of the beheadin ...

WINTER’S TALE Blu-ray Review

Sep 2 2014 7:00am CDT | Source: Collider

Quentin Tarantino has complained about how one of the biggest problems with American cinema is that it’s afraid of big emotions.  Of melodrama that might descend into camp (or perhaps is camp to begin with).  And it’s true, more movies are likely to adapt an ironic distance than go for something earnest.  There’s a reason for that: when earnest doesn’t work, you get films like The Postman and The Room.  But that means some materi ...
