Kevin Costner Says No To Django Unchained

Kevin Costner
Quentin Tarantino's new slave western film Django Unchained hasn't failed to excite the movie world so far. One reason for this was the proposed cast that Tarantino was planning on bringing together which included Christoph Waltz, Leonardo DiCaprio, Samuel L Jackson and Jamie Foxx. However, one of the biggest names reportedly attached to the film, Kevin Costner, has followed the example of Will Smith by dropping out of the project, reports IndieWire.

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.
