Django Unchained official movie poster and movie synopsis released

The new Quentin Tarantino movie Django Unchained is set to be released this year and we have now been given the official movie poster for the movie, as well as the official movie synopsis. The Weinstein Company has described Django Unchained as follows:

Set in the South two years before the Civil War, “Django Unchained" stars Academy Award®-winner Jamie Foxx as Django, a slave whose brutal history with his former owners lands him face-to-face with German-born bounty hunter Dr. King Schultz (Academy Award®-winner Christoph Waltz). Schultz is on the trail of the murderous Brittle brothers, and only Django can lead him to his bounty. The unorthodox Schultz acquires Django with a promise to free him upon the capture of the Brittles – dead or alive. 
 
Success leads Schultz to free Django, though the two men choose not to go their separate ways. Instead, Schultz seeks out the South’s most wanted criminals with Django by his side. Honing vital hunting skills, Django remains focused on one goal: finding and rescuing Broomhilda (Kerry Washington), the wife he lost to the slave trade long ago. 
 
 
Django and Schultz’s search ultimately leads them to Calvin Candie (Academy Award®-nominee Leonardo DiCaprio), the proprietor of “Candyland,” an infamous plantation where slaves are groomed by trainer Ace Woody (Kurt Russell) to battle each other for sport. Exploring the compound under false pretenses, Django and Schultz arouse the suspicion of Stephen (Academy Award®-nominee Samuel L. Jackson), Candie’s trusted house slave. Their moves are marked, and a treacherous organization closes in on them. If Django and Schultz are to escape with Broomhilda, they must choose between independence and solidarity, between sacrifice and survival… 
 
Written and directed by Academy Award®-winner Quentin Tarantino, DJANGO UNCHAINED is produced by Stacey Sher, Pilar Savone and Reginald Hudlin. The executive producers are Harvey and Bob Weinstein, Michael Shamberg, Shannon McIntosh, and James Skotchdopole. DJANGO UNCHAINED will be released in the U.S. on December 25, 2012, and internationally by Sony Pictures Releasing International.
 
Django Unchained stars Jamie Foxx, Leonardo DiCaprio, Samuel L Jackson, Kerry Washington, Sacha Baron Cohen and Kurt Russell. It is due to be released on December 25.

Kane & Lynch the movie needs director
Kane & Lynch the movie needs director
Kane and Lynch came across as a video game that had been specifically made to, if successful as a game, be made in to a movie. Sure enough, talk of Kane and Lynch the movie has been going around for sometime but it appears to have hit a stumbling block.
 
Kane & Lynch the movie looked set to get up and running. A screenplay had been penned by Kyle Ward and Bruce Willis and Jamie Foxx looked set to play the lead roles. However, the coming and going of directors has seen the movie stall somewhat and it appears to be at an absolute stand still.
 
F. Gray Gray had initially been linked to directing the project but has since pulled out of the project. Then there were rumours that Wayne Kramer was set to helm the movie but that does not seem to be the case anymore. It is believed that Bruce Willis and Jamie Foxx are still loosely attached to Kane & Lynch but until a director is found, this movie will be stuck in development hell.
