Why The D Is Silent In Django Unchained
The Blaxploitation/spaghetti western mash-up Django Unchained clocks in at 165 minutes. But accounts from its executive producer, writer-director, and cast have made it clear much of the script has been excised and much of the footage left on the cutting room floor. But what was cut?

Amazing Spider-Man Sequel Is Changing Electro's Look, Says Jamie Foxx
Does this mean Webb will lean more toward the Ultimate Electro introduced in Ultimate Spider-Man No. 10? It sounds that way, though that character’s origins rely on individuals not connected to Webb’s reality at the moment, from Justin Hammer to Wilson Fisk, the Kingpin of crime.

Jamie Foxx Talks About Electro In The Amazing Spider-Man Sequel
One of the most challenging aspects of writing a superhero sequel has to be finding a way to introduce the new central villain. The previous movie has a few pre-established storylines that have to be adhered to, and it's the writer's responsibility to find a way for the new foe to fit into the established world organically.

Django Unchained TV Spot Cuts To The Chase
It's nearly December, meaning we're mere weeks away from the release of Django Unchained, Quentin Tarantino's follow-up to the Oscar-winning Inglourious Basterds. And just in case you've somehow missed out on all the buzz about his hotly anticipated take on the spaghetti Western, the latest TV spot catches you up quick, breaking down the plot in just 15 seconds. Then there's plenty of time for star spotting and swagger.

Django Unchained Leads Prepare For Vengeance In New Poster
It’s kind of a good thing that Weinstein already helped sell us on Django with early trailers and cast photos, because this poster effort is pretty bland. The tagline isn’t very fresh, and the idea of Photoshopped leads posing for a camera doesn’t do much to excite about Django.

Channing Tatum Looking Like John McClane In First White House Down Images
The Year of Channing Tatum, which is what I'm pretty sure we'll call 2012 in the history books when all things are said and done, looks to continue handily next year, both thanks to the delay of G.I. Joe: Retaliation (which was added to include more of Tatum, believe it or not) and White House Down, in which he plays a Secret Service agent valiantly defending

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 Wants Jamie Foxx As Electro
He's about to have one of the biggest roles of his career as this December's Django Unchained, but Jamie Foxx has already lined up a new role that may eclipse even that one. The comedian-turned-movie-star is reportedly in early talks to play the villain in The Amazing Spider-Man 2, reportedly as the hyper-electric baddie Electro.

Django Unchained International Trailer Finally Looks Like A Tarantino Joint
The new trailer gives us an in-depth look at DiCaprio’s approach to playing a flat-out maniac, while simultaneously taking us on a better tour of Candi Land … his vicious Southern plantation. It ramps up the action and the gunplay, where earlier clips showed us the dialogue and the root of the relationships. This, finally, looks like a Tarantino genre picture.

Jamie Foxx And Ken Jeong Planning Two Comedies Together
Foxx says that he plans on writing and directing All-Star, which will have a part for comedian Kevin Hart (and likely a cameo role for Foxx, himself). While I wouldn’t have initially pegged Foxx and Jeong as likely collaborators, seeing the projects that they are setting up around each other makes sense. Both premises have potential, and I’m genuinely interested to see what Foxx can do as a director.

Could John Legend Have An Original Song In Quentin Tarantino's Django Unchained?
Foxx was telling me that so many musicians want to be considered for Tarantino's movies because of the iconic way he has used songs in the past. Then Foxx told a great story about how Legend “auditioned” a song for Tarantino, in an old-school way.

Chris Rock, Jamie Foxx, Idris Elba Up For Role In The Intouchables Remake
Now that Paul Feig is set he's starting to line up cast members, and the roster is pretty impressive. The French film documents the relationship between a Caucasian quadriplegic and the African-American man from the projects hired to be his caretaker. The role of the male nurse won actor Omar Sy the French equivalent of the Oscar, and is considered a choice role for an American actor.

Jamie Foxx To Play The President In Roland Emmerich's White House Down
Foxx is clearly an actor with a ton of range, and while the lead role in Django will probably give him plenty of chances to show it off, it probably won't hurt either to take on a role that's completely and totally different for his next effort

Quentin Tarantino Adds Evan Parke To Django Unchained Cast
Who will he play? No idea. By this point, I thought Tarantino ohad locked up his major casting motions, with Jamie Foxx in line to play Django, a freed slave having to fight to get his wife (Kerry Washington) out of detention; Leonardo DiCaprio as Calvin Candie, a sadistic ranch owner who makes captive men fight to the death on his property...

Jamie Foxx Is Probably The Star Of Quentin Tarantino's Django Unchained
This Deadilne story isn't substantially different from what we've been hearing for about a week, but Mike Fleming does seem convinced that talks will start soon, and if Tarantino wants to get the ball moving on this he needs to settle on a lead actor quickly
