Sacha Baron Cohen in talks to join Tarantino’s ‘Django Unchained’

Nov 12th, 2011

Quentin Tarantino is wasting no time filling out the cast for his latest project “Django Unchained.” Sacha Baron Cohen is the latest actor set to sign on to the slavery revenge flick, which already boasts an impressive cast of Jamie Foxx, Leonardo DiCaprio and Christoph Waltz.

The story centers on a slave-turned-bounty hunter (Foxx) who embarks on a rescue/revenge mission to free his wife from her sadistic slavedriver. Baron Cohen’s prospective role would be that of Scotty, a gambler who purchases Django’s wife to be his female companion.

Shooting is scheduled to begin in early 2012 with a US release planned for Dec. 25, 2012.

The Weinstein Co. will release “Django Unchained” domestically and Sony Pictures will release the pic overseas.
