Sony circles ‘Django’ deal

Studio eyes foreign distribution, co-financing

Sony is in talks to co-finance and handle foreign distribution on Quentin Taranntino’s ”Django Unchained.” The Weinstein Co. will handle domestic releasing on ”Django,” on which Will Smith is the leading candidate to star.

Variety reported last week that Tarantino’s “Inglourious Basterds” star Christoph Waltz is attached to play Dr. King Schultz, the other lead role, and that Tarantino wrote the script with Smith in mind.

Story centers on a slave-turned-bounty hunter on a mission to rescue his wife from her sadistic slavemaster.

Variety also reported last week that Tarantino is seeking a reunion with Samuel L. Jackson, who is being courted for the role of Stephen, the main servant to the chief antagonist in the Southern-flavored Western.
