Quentin Tarantino is gearing up to begin filming of his upcoming film Django Unchained, starring Jamie Foxx as a freed slave-turned-bounty hunter who must return to his plantation to rescue his slave wife Broomhilda (Kerry Washington) from the sadistic Calvin Candie, played by Leonardo DiCaprio.
Actor Garrett Dillahunt (Raising Hope) recently took pictures (via Bleeding Cool) of the Santa Clarita Melody Ranch set which probably looks very familiar to HBO’s Deadwood fans since it’s actually the same set. Tarantino recently told the LA Times, “It’s a blast shooting here. Most other western towns look like dollhouses. This has the complete look. It’s fantastic.”
Check out the picture below. Django Unchained opens December 25th and stars Christoph Waltz, Samuel L. Jackson, Kurt Russell, Sacha Baron Cohen, Joseph Gordon-Levitt and many others.
