*The lead role has been casted for upcoming movie “Django Unchained.”

As of Wednesday, Jamie Foxx will be playing the lead role of the formerly enslaved African, while Leonardo DiCaprio will be Calvin Candie, a plantation owner with a stank attitude, of course.

The project depicts the story of a German dentist-turned bounty hunter who purchases Django. The pair eventually become friends and join forces to rescue Django’s wife from the evil plantation owner, Candie.

It’s a Quentin Tarantino film, so expect the unexpected with a few editorial exaggerations and humorous add-ins. Oh and there will be lots of killing and blood.

In other news, big screen favorite Idris Elba will be starring in an upcoming sci-fi thriller “Pacific Rim,” a Guillermo del Toro project. He’ll play Sensi, a role that was originally developed for Tom Cruise.

He’s currently busy, however, shooting “Prometheus,” a Ridley Scott project.
