Gordon-Levitt out of Django Unchained

Quentin Tarantino’s next film just got a little less charming. A rep for Joseph Gordon-Levitt has confirmed to EW that the actor has dropped out of Django Unchained, Tarantino’s upcoming slave-era drama starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Christoph Waltz and Jamie Foxx, due to a scheduling conflict with his feature directorial debut.

Gordon-Levitt was set to play a small supporting role in Django but knew that shooting might conflict with Don Jon’s Addiction, which he’ll be directing and starring in with Scarlett Johansson, according to a Deadline report from February. As it turns out, scheduling does in fact conflict, and Gordon-Levitt recently confirmed to MTV News, “No, I’m not going to get to do [Django]. I’d love to, but it just doesn’t work.”

Gordon-Levitt sadly won’t get to join the all-star cast, which includes DiCaprio, Waltz, Foxx, Kerry Washington, Sacha Baron Cohen, Kurt Russell and Samuel L. Jackson. The movie, set for a December 2012 release, tells the story of a slave turned bounty hunter (Foxx) who sets out to rescue his wife (Washington) from a ruthless plantation owner (DiCaprio).

 

Thanks to DarthBob for the submission.

Three years since Inglourious Basterds; we are way past due for some QT celluloid goodness!
