HOLLYWOOD – Fans of Django Reindhart watched the new trailer for Django Unchained with increasing alarm. ‘We’ve had three trailers, I think,’ said Kilgore Truckstop, the President of the Django Reindhart Appreciation Society. ‘And there isn’t a lick of jazz guitar in any of the footage.’
The director, Quentin Tarantino, has consistently denied that there was ever any intention to make a Django Reindhart biopic. (Click here for an earlier denial)
‘He’s just got the same first name,’ said the Jackie Brown scenarist. ‘That’s it. That’s the whole fucking thing.’
When asked whether fans of the jazz guitarist were going to boycott the film, Kilgore was adamant. ‘No, no, no, absolutely not,’ he said. ‘I’m going to go. I love Tarantino’s films. I mean I didn’t even think it was about Django Reindhart before Studio Exec brought it to my attention. It seemed strange even then. Reminds me more of that Sergio Corbucci Western. What was it called?’
So the controversy rages on.
