Hi, Bryan Here….
There was a ‘Django Unchained’ panel today at Comic-Con where Quentin Tarantino talked about his upcoming film. He said there was a character named Brunhilde von Shaft played by Kerry Washington, which in his mind is an ancestor of John Shaft. That prompted Tarantino to start singing the theme song to ‘Shaft’.
Tarantino also said they just finished shooting a few scenes with Jonah Hill (Yes, that Jonah Hill) as a member of the Regulators. The Regulators were sort of the KKK for that period of time. Tarantino said that they were the funniest scenes he has ever filmed. The panel consisted of Tarantino, Walton Goggins, Don Johnson, Christopher Waltz, Kerry Washington, and Jamie Foxx. There was no Leo.
I think this movie is going to be epic. And from the footage we have seen from it, I think it’s going to be a lot like ‘Kill Bill’. But how cool would it be if this was a pre-cursor to Tarantino doing a Shaft movie with Sam Jackson.
