Remember a while back when everyone started dropping out of Django Unchained? Well, this week at Cannes, Harvey Weinstein told us not to fear as there would be some surprise actors joining the film to fill the roles that were left vacant. Today, The Playlist is reporting that one of these “surprise actors” may be none other than 2011’s Man Of The Year (at least in the acting world), Michael Fassbender.
Now, before you start celebrating, remember that this is in no way confirmed. As of now, it’s simply just a rumor. That being said, there is a small chance that it could turn out to be accurate. Fassbender has worked with Tarantino before on Inglourious Basterds and apparently, the actor has been spotted on set. But, as The Playlist points out, Fassbender is also currently shooting Twelve Years A Slave in New Orleans, so this could all just be a misunderstanding.
So, for now, all we can do is speculate but hopefully we’ll get official confirmation soon. My guess is that this is just a big mix up but if it’s not then colour me excited. Even if it’s just a small supporting role, I would love, love, love to see Fassbender in the film.
Think about it, Michael Fassbender, Christoph Waltz and Leonardo DiCaprio all in the same movie….am I in heaven right now?
