Well known for playing the “good guy,” Kevin Costner is negotiating to play sadistic bad guy, Ace Woody, in Quentin Tarantino’s “Django Unchained,” according to reports.
The script focuses on a German dentist-turned-bounty hunter. He buys a slave, played by Jamie Foxx, who can identify a man the bounty hunter is looking for.
The bounty hunter and the slave become friendly and set out to rescue the slave’s wife from the vicious Calvin Candie, played by Leonardo DiCaprio. Costner will play one of Candie’s henchmen.
Tarantino wrote and is directing the film.
Kevin Costner fans can also look forward to seeing him play honest guy Jonathan Kent, Clark Kent’s father, in Warner Bros. upcoming Superman movie “Man of Steel.”
