Kevin Costner Close to Tarantino’s in Django Unchained
It looks like good guy Kevin Costner is trading his white hat in for a black one as Deadline brings word that Costner is in talks to play slave trainer Ace Woody in Quentin Tarantino’s Django Unchained. Thinking back through all the movies Costner has starred in, I can’t think of any where he played a bad guy, so taking on the role of a sadistic guy that trains slaves to fight for entertainment is definitely a new direction for him to take.
In Django Unchained, Ace Woody trains “mandingo’ fighters to fight each other as entertainment for the crowd that hangs out at Candyland, and Woody doesn’t have a problem with mistreating or killing the slaves that don’t deliver a good performance.
If negotiations go well, Costner will be joining Jamie Foxx and Leonardo DiCaprio in Tarantino’s spin on the spaghetti western. Foxx has the lead role of Django and DiCaprio will be getting plenty of attention as Calvin Candy, the ruthless owner of Candyland, a club where white patrons take a break from watching male slaves beat the crap out of each other by getting a little entertainment from the female slaves working as prostitutes.
The film also stars Christoph Waltz as the bounty hunter that trains Django to rescue his wife from Candyland, and Samuel J. Jackson as Candy’s enforcer.
If it’s just too painful to picture Costner in such a villainous role, don’t forget that he returns to the land of the good guys as Pa Kent in Superman: Man of Steel.
