We’ve known for quite a while that Quentin Tarantino’s Django Unchained would be about a slave breaking free and going to rescue his wife, but we haven’t know who that wife would be. However, now Deadline reports that the director has cast Kerry Washington as Broomhilda.
Jamie Foxx will play the slave, who is freed by a bounty hunter (Christoph Waltz) and taught the bounty-hunting game. Django yearns to be reunited with his wife (Kerry Washington), which leads to a showdown at the Candyland ranch of evil plantation owner Calvin Candie (Leonardo DiCaprio).
Tarantino has apparent long been eyeing Kerry Washington for Broomhilda, but was also considering the possibility of discovering an unknown actress for the role. After a fruitless casting search, the director went back to Washington. Filming is expected to start in the enxt couple of months.
