Foxx Will in Fact Hunt DiCaprio in Tarantino's “Django Unchained”

If Will Smith isn't smart enough to jump on the Quentin Tarantino gravy train, well, it's probably for the best.

As had been rumored for a week or two now, Jamie Foxx will play the lead role in Tarantino's slave revenge epic "Django Unchained," reported Variety.

Foxx will play Django, an ex-slave who teams up with a German bounty hunter (Christoph Waltz) who teaches him the tricks of the trade, after which he goes on a quest to free the love of his life, Broomhilda (Kerry Washington, Foxx's "Ray" co-star, is said to be in the mix)., and seek vengeance on slavemaster Calvin Candie (Leonardo DiCaprio). Samuel L. Jackson is on deck to play Stephen, Cotton's right-hand man.

There's a totally weird and unsubstantiated rumor floating around the Internets that Smith turned down the role because it's being produced by Harvey Weinstein, who's also backing Paul Thomas Anderson's Scientology-inspired film, "The Master."
