Kurt Russell and Sacha Baron Cohen drop out of Quentin Tarantino’s Django Unchained
Kurt Russell and Sacha Baron Cohen are out Walton Goggins is in.
I’m not really sure I care who is in or out of this movie as long as they hurry the hell up and get it made. I have a feeling with Quentin Tarantino just about anyone could be great
in this film.
Walton Goggins Will Absorb Kurt Russell’s Role In Django Unchained
Russell had already replaced Kevin Costner in the role, but with Django already shooting and set for December 25 release this year, it was unclear how someone could step in and replace him so quickly. But Ain’t It Cool reports it’s not nearly so complicated or dramatic. In true Tarantino fashion, the script is changing and evolving even as shooting happens, and Russell’s role changed to the point that Walton Goggins, who plays another nasty overseer, will basically absorb the part. It seems clear that Russell did indeed quit, but their sources say he didn’t storm off the set, and his departure had nothing to do with Sacha Baron Cohen leaving as well.
