Jamie Foxx for Tarantino Movie? May Join Leo, Sam Jackson, Christoph Waltz
Will Jamie Foxx be joining Quentin Tarantino‘s “Django Unchained”? That’s the talk as the film–which already sounds great and it hasn’t even been filmed. Last night at the Tony’s, Jackson told me that he’s psyched, and that when we hear the whole story and script everyone’s going to go crazy. Tarantino wrote the script for his Oscar winner, Christoph Waltz, who must still be kicking himself that the “Inglourious Basterds” director found him in the first place. It’s an amazing story. Leonardo DiCaprio is also definitely signed. If Foxx joins the cast, it means he’s replacing Will Smith, who was discussed originally for the film. It’s good news for Jamie Foxx, who’s let his music career over take his film side. The Oscar winner for “Ray” could be a great Tarantino addition.
