The biggest news on Quentin Tarantino’s Django Unchained didn’t come out of the panel that was held for the movie. It came when Tarantino appeared at the DC’s Before Watchmen panel. DC Comics is going to publish a five-issue Django Unchained comic book this November. The mini-series will have same day availability for print and digitial editions and it’s being released before the movie is due to hit theaters. The comic is a comic book version of the entire script. This means that unlike the movie, the comic will include scenes that may have been cut due to time constraints. According to Tarantino, “Even though things might have changed in the movie, I might have changed something else, I might have dropped chapters, I might have dropped big pieces — that will all be in the comic. The comic will literally be that very first draft of the script. All that material that didn’t make the movie, all of that will be part of the piece. And I’m really excited about it.”
Django Unchained is a western that stars Jamie Foxx as a slave-turned-bounty hunter who sets out to rescue his wife from a brutal Mississippi plantation. The movie also stars Christoph Waltz, Kerry Washington, Samuel L. Jackson and Leonardo DiCaprio.
