Jamie Foxx plays the title character in the violent, Mississippi-set spaghetti western – a freed Southern slave attempting to recover his wife (Kerry Washington, from TV’s Scandal) from a nasty plantation owner.
Joining him on the road – or more like, the other way around, actually – is a German bounty hunter played by Foxx’s fellow Oscar winner, Christoph Waltz, who needs Django’s help to settle an old score.
Btw, Leonardo DiCaprio also pops in as a deranged plantation owner who makes his toughest slaves fight to the death, gladiator-style, just for the fun of it.
Now, doesn’t this sound like good ol’ family fun? You better think so because the film is set to open this holiday season.
