MIAMI VICE Catches Tarantino’s DJANGO UNCHAINED
It’s not exactly ‘Seven Degrees of Kevin Bacon’ but the latest addition to Quentin Tarantino’s Django Unchained does offer an interesting meeting between the big screen and small screen versions of Miami Vice as Don Johnson joins the Tarantino spin on the classic ‘spaghetti western.’
Johnson, who played Sonny Crockett on the Miami Vice TV series will be joining Jamie Foxx, who portrayed Ricardo Tubbs on the big screen remake of the same show, after what Showblitz refers to as a “four-month courtship.” Johnson will appear in the film as a slave owner named Spencer Bennett who encounters Django and Dr. Schultz while they are “in pursuit of a bounty.”
In Django Unchained, Foxx plays Django, a slave that teams up with German bounty hunter Dr. Schultz (Christoph Waltz) to get his wife back from a cruel plantation owner named Calvin Candie (Leonardo DiCaprio). The film also stars Kurt Russell as the guy that trains Candie’s slaves to fight gladiator-style and Samuel L. Jackson is Candie’s house slave and right hand man that eventually has to square off against Django.
Django Unchained is expected to begin principal photography next month, with a planned release date scheduled for December 25th, 2012.
