Quentin Tarantino’s latest film, a slavery-themed western called Django Unchained, is generating buzz more than a year before its scheduled release because of its star studded cast.
Actress Kerry Washington is the latest addition to a cast that features the likes of Jamie Foxx, Christoph Waltz, Leonardo DiCaprio, Samuel L. Jackson, Kurt Russell, Don Johnson, and Joseph Gordon-Levitt.
The film, which takes a raw look at slavery, is about a freed slave’s journey to reunite with his estranged wife.
Washington will star as Broomhilda, the long-suffering slave wife of Django (Jamie Foxx), who is freed by a bounty hunter (Christoph Waltz) and taught the tricks of that trade. Django’s real desire is to be reunited with his wife, who winds up in distress while being held up in a variety of unsavory places.
