HOLLYWOOD REPORTER:

Quentin Tarantino Reveals 'Django Unchained' Synopsis
5:52 PM PDT 4/13/2012 by Todd Gilchrist

Jamie Foxx, Christoph Waltz, Leonardo DiCaprio and Samuel L. Jackson star in the director's "Southern" about a slave who teams up with a bounty hunter to find his wife while tracking down a murderous pair of brothers.

Sony Pictures and the Weinstein Company released a synopsis Friday for Quentin Tarantino’s Django Unchained. The follow-up to Tarantino’s Inglorious Basterds, the film tells the story of a slave in the antebellum South who agrees to help a bounty hunter track down a violent pair of fugitives in exchange for help in finding his long-lost wife.

According to the press release, the plot is as follows:

Set in the South two years before the Civil War, Django Unchained stars Academy Award®-winner Jamie Foxx as Django, a slave whose brutal history with his former owners lands him face-to-face with German-born bounty hunter Dr. King Schultz (Academy Award®-winner Christoph Waltz). Schultz is on the trail of the murderous Brittle brothers, and only Django can lead him to his bounty. The unorthodox Schultz acquires Django with a promise to free him upon the capture of the Brittles - dead or alive.
Success leads Schultz to free Django, though the two men choose not to go their separate ways.  Instead, Schultz seeks out the South's most wanted criminals with Django by his side.  Honing vital hunting skills, Django remains focused on one goal: finding and rescuing Broomhilda (Kerry Washington), the wife he lost to the slave trade long ago.   
 
Django andSchultz's search ultimately leads them to Calvin Candie (Academy Award®-nominee Leonardo DiCaprio), the proprietor of "Candyland," an infamous plantation where slaves are groomed by trainer Ace Woody (Kurt Russell) to battle each other for sport.  Exploring the compound under false pretenses, Django and Schultz arouse the suspicion of Stephen (Academy Award®-nominee Samuel L. Jackson), Candie's trusted house slave.  Their moves are marked, and a treacherous organization closes in on them.  If Django and Schultz are to escape with Broomhilda, they must choose between independence and solidarity, between sacrifice and survival...

Written and directed by Tarantino, Django Unchained will be released in the U.S. on December 25, 2012, and internationally by Sony Pictures. The film is produced by Stacey Sher, Reginald Hudlin and Pilar Savone.  The executive producers are Harvey and Bob Weinstein, Michael Shamberg, Shannon McIntosh and James Skotchdopole.

Any chance this will pave the way to a live-action Catcher Freeman movie?  ;D Granddad's version, of course.

We all know that ATLanta is a better choice for a premiere private screening.

DJANGO NYC makes for a great t-shirt.

I will ask for a meager 5% of shirt sales as a gesture of good will. 8)

I'd love it if there were a special screening held in Det... never mind.. the shootout between knuckleheads who showed up wouldn't be worth it..  :-\

..there must be a wide opening for this film.. thousands of screens.. demand that your local theaters show this film..

..the international promotion should be aggressively pursued as well.. canada, south america, asia, europe, africa/middle-east..

..I hope some cool merchandise eventually comes out.. action figures, coffee mugs, t-shirts, beach towels, bedding sets..

Y'know, the more I view the official trailer of ''Django'',  the more it looks like a road trip/buddy type of movie.

seeing jamie fox in that green jacket reminded me of Micheal Landon as little joe in bonanza. as a matter of fact the few clips i've seen remind me of an episode that is similar to this movie.
