DJANGO UNCHAINED ‘WILL FEATURE NO NEW FOOTAGE’
HOLLYWOOD – Quentin Tarantino revealed today that Django Unchained – released on Christmas Day – holds no more surprises. ‘Basically we’ve already shown everything in the trailers,’ the co-director of Four Rooms said. ‘I think we’ve even put some of the deleted scenes in there as well, so the special edition Blu-Ray won’t be worth spending money on if you’ve got a decent internet connection.’
The leakage began the very day Tarantino finished the screenplay and, somehow (possibly via a large bag of weed being smoked in celebration) – wound its way to a photocopier from thence to a scanner and from thence to the internet. During filming of the tale of a slave (Jamie Foxx [not to be mistaken with James Fox]) who is freed by a dentist (Cristophe Waltz) so he can then hunt down the men who captured him and the man (Leonardo di Caprio) who has his wife (Kerry Washington).
Dismissing the earlier leak of the script, Tarantino said at the 2012 Comi-Con that the film had changed over the course of filming with many scenes rewritten and characters added and others eliminated. However, today he admitted that all the footage filmed has already been included in the teasers, the trailer, the international trailer, the TV spots, the TV clips, and the poster art. ‘You can basically Google the film,’ said QT, disgruntled. ‘I fucked up.’ There will be no new footage in the actual and perhaps substantially less.
Anybody who wants to watch the extended trailer in a large room full of people texting will have to wait until December, however.
