A couple of weeks ago we shared the formerly secret plot details for Quentin Tarantino's Django Unchained, which is currently shooting in New Orleans. Today, the first official photos for the film were released. It looks like Django may be a full-blown Spaghetti Western, which is something Tarantino fans (like us) have long hoped the director would try. Tarantino frequently expresses his admiration for the form and its creator, Sergio Leone, who added surrealist and existential touches to the traditional Western in the 1960s with movies like The Good, The Bad and the Ugly and Once Upon a Time in the West. We must admit, now we're excited about Django Unchained. Photos below.
