The Trivia of: Django Unchained

Sort by: Showing 16 items
Rating: List Type:
Average listal rating (1756 ratings) 7.6 IMDB Rating 0

Will Smith, Idris Elba, Chris Tucker, Terrence Howard, Michael Kenneth Williams, and Tyrese Gibson were all considered for the role of Django. Quentin Tarantino actually wrote the role with Smith in mind, and Smith's agents and manager wanted him to accept it, but Smith ultimately decided to pass. Tarantino then offered the part to Jamie Foxx, who accepted.

Zoe Bell was considered for the role of Lara Lee Candie-Fitzwilly.

Leonardo DiCaprio, who portrays villain Calvin Candie in this film, was originally the first actor choice for the role of antagonist Hans Landa in Quentin Tarantino's previous film Inglourious Basterds. However, Tarantino decided that a German-speaking actor should portray the character, and the part went to Christoph Waltz, who portrays Dr. King Schultz in this film, marking Waltz's second film collaboration with Tarantino.

Sid Haig was considered for the role of 'Mr. Stonesipher', so much so that casting director 'Victoria Thomas' informed Haig's agent "It's a lock". 'Quentin Tarantino' himself scheduled, and later canceled at the last minute, two auditions for Haig. Two months later, the role quietly went to David Steen instead. Tarantino being known for his extremely dry humor, this "prank" is presumably rooted in Haig turning down the role of Marcellus Wallace in Pulp Fiction 17 years previously.

The title and setting of the film was inspired by the 1960s spaghetti western Django, with the original Django actor Franco Nero having a small role in the film.

This film marks Samuel L. Jackson's fifth film collaboration with director Quentin Tarantino. Jackson had previous roles in Pulp Fiction, Jackie Brown, Kill Bill: Vol. 2, and Inglourious Basterds, all written and directed by Tarantino.

Michael Fassbender was considered for a role in the movie, but Quentin Tarantino fired him because he published it on his twitter before it was official.

In Inglourious Basterds, the southern hero fights the German villain, and in Django Unchained, the roles are reversed: the German hero fights the southern villain.
