Costner In Talks For Django Unchained

He’s recently been in a run of smaller, quieter dramas like The Company Men and Swing Vote, but it looks like Kevin Costner really is stepping his career back up. He’s already getting set to play Jonathan Kent in Zack Snyder’s Man Of Steel and now he’s in talks to join Quentin Tarantino’s Django Unchained.

Assuming he locks in a deal, Costner will sign on to play Ace Woody, a sadistic henchman and slave trainer who works for ranch/club owner Calvin Candie (Leonardo DiCaprio). It would definitely be a very different role for a man better known as the heroic type (heck, even in Mr Brooks he was a family man who struggled with a dual identity as a serial killer).

Django’s plot focuses on Jamie Foxx as the title character, a former slave-turned bounty hunter who must go up against Candie and his gang (Including Samuel L. Jackson) to free his wife. He gets help from a dentist who also happens to be a dab hand at weaponry (Christoph Waltz).

If all goes well, Costner will report to the Django set after he’s finished instilling good American morals in Henry Cavill’s Clark Kent…
