"Do you know what a bounty hunter is?" Let's meet Dr. King Schultz from Quentin Tarantino's Django Unchained. Following in the footsteps of Inglourious Basterds (like these posters), The Weinstein Co. has started releasing individual characters posters for Django, featuring one character posing so we can see the full cast lined up by the end. This first one, debuted by Empire, features Tarantino discovery Christoph Waltz as Dr. King Schultz, the bounty hunter who teams up with Jamie Foxx, the freed slave Django, to find his wife and hunt down her owners. Lookin' good so far, I just wish they released more of them already!
I'm sure we'll see a full set of these posters for every character in Django, but for now here is Dr. Schultz:
Django Unchained is written and directed by Quentin Tarantino, who last brought us Inglourious Basterds. In the film, the Django (Jamie Foxx) is a freed slave, who under the tutelage of a German bounty hunter (Christoph Waltz) becomes a bounty hunter himself, and together they track down his slave wife (Kerry Washington) and liberate her from the evil plantation owner (Leonardo DiCaprio). The cast includes Jonah Hill, Amber Tamblyn, Dennis Christopher, Walton Goggins, M.C. Gainey, Don Johnson, Anthony LaPaglia, Zoe Bell, James Russo, James Remar, Todd Allen and Franco Nero. The Weinstein Company has the film scheduled for wide release starting on December 25th, Christmas Day, the end of this year. You down?
