HitFix has what looks to be some well-sourced and thoroughly researched information about Quentin Tarantino’s next film, previously described as “A Southern” — a frontier revenge tale set in the post-Civil War South. Drew McWeeny connects the dots for us:
Earlier today, @AgentTrainee simply tweeted the word “Jealous?” and a picture of a title page that should look familiar to anyone who read either “Kill Bill” or “Inglourious Basterds.” And if that title page is right, then we know know a few new things.
Awards Daily reader, billy, has seen the script and offers this informal synopsis:
The title character Django is a freed slave, who under the tutelage of a German bounty hunter (Christophe Waltz) becomes a badass bounty hunter himself and after assisting Waltz on taking down some bad guys for profit, is in turn assisted by Waltz in tracking down his slave wife and liberating her from an evil plantation owner. And that doesn‚Äôt even half begin to cover it!
