Kevin Costner was rumoured to be playing Ace Woody, a member of Calvin Candie's (Leonardo DiCaprio) crew. However, Costner will now play no part in the film, giving the reason of 'scheduling conflicts'. Costner is already working on a TV movie entitled The Hatfields & The McCoys for the History Channel and will soon be appearing in Zack Snyder's Superman film Man Of Steel.
The search is now on for Quentin Tarantino to find a new Ace. Rumours have already circulated that
Danny McBride may step into the role (!) but So I Saw This Film can't see that working out. You don't replace Kevin Costner with Danny McBride. It just shouldn't happen. Who would you suggest to replace Costner? I was thinking maybe Brendan Gleeson? Anyway we'll have to wait and see.
So Costner has walked away from Django Unchained I'm sure it will only serve to churn up more intrigue in Tarantino's next project. Film fans clearly can't wait for this one, and who could blame them.
