Quentin Tarantino has decided to go safe and cast Leonardo DiCaprio to play the villain in his western Django Unchained.
DiCaprio will play Calvin Candie, an evil ranch owner and the proprieter of a sex club in Mississippi where women serve as sex slaves and men fight in death matches.
Confirmed so far is only Christoph Waltz, set to play the dentist turned bounty hunter sidekick of the movie’s lead. Samuel L. Jackson may be involved as Candie’s valet. Will Smith had been rumored to play the lead role, though now Deadline is rumoring names like Idris Elba and Chris Tucker.
DiCaprio as a villain? Is a must see.
