The story centers around a freed slave who teams up with a bounty hunter in order to save his wife from Candie.
No one has been cast for the lead role, but rumors of Will Smith and Idris Elba have been floating. The word is that German actor Christoph Waltz(Inglourious Basterds, The Green Hornet) will play the role of "Django", the bounty hunter.
Rumors also include possible castings of Samual L. Jackson(Unbreakable, Jackie Brown), Michael Fassbender(Centurion, Blood Creek), and Franco Nero(Die Hard 2, Tristana).
Tarantino(Pulp Fiction, Kill Bill) wrote the script for "Django Unchained" and will also direct the movie, which is due out sometime in 2013.
