- DJANGO UNCHAINED
Oscar winner Kevin Costner will play a bad guy in Django Unchained, the next film from writer-director Quentin Tarantino. The cast already includes Jamie Foxx, Leonardo DiCaprio, Christoph Waltz and Samuel L. Jackson.
Deadline says Costner will play Ace Woody, "the sadistic trainer of the male fighting slaves who entertain the white patrons of Candyland as well as the female slaves who are forced to be prostitutes. The club and ranch are owned by Calvin Candie (DiCaprio) and Ace Woody is the one who pits the "mandingo" fighters against one another, and has little qualms about mistreating and even killing the slaves who don't measure up."
Django Unchained starts filming in October
