The cast of Django Unchained talked about the new Quentin Tarantino film during a Comic-Con International panel on Saturday afternoon.
The film – which opens in theaters on Christmas Day 2012 – stars
Jamie Foxx as Django, a slave in the Deep South who teams up with a
German bounty hunter, Dr. King Schultz (played by Christoph Waltz), to
save his wife Broomhilda von Shaft (Kerry Washington), from plantation
owner Calvin Candie (Leonardo DiCaprio).
In a discussion moderated by Entertainment Weekly film
writer Anthony Breznican, Tarantino said that his goal for the film was
to put a new twist on the classic Spaghetti Western genre.
