Django Unchained Loses Yet Another Star

25 May 2012
Latest Tarantino flick struggling to keep hold of talent!
While you'd have thought that the promise of a Quentin Tarantino helmed Western would have been more than enough to get on-screen talent hot around the collar and desperate to come on board, it seems that his latest title, Django Unchained, is suffering from serious problems when it comes to holding onto the on-screen talent.
Already the project has seen Sacha Baron Cohen, Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Kevin Costner unable to fulfil their duties, and the latest news is that Costner's replacement, Kurt Russell, has also pulled out from the project for reasons unknown.
That's not to say that the movie doesn't have an impressive cast however, with names including Leonardo DiCaprio, Samuel L. Jackson and Jamie Foxx attached and, so far, still involved.
Time is ticking down if the movie is set to make its December 25th release date however, and it's likely that any further cast changes will result in slippage - which would push the movie into the less than prolific early New Year window.
