‘Django Unchained’ – Produced by Reginald Hudlin, Pilar Savone & Stacey Sher

Eye on the Oscars: Best Picture

ORIGINS: “Once Quentin Tarantino finished ‘Inglourious Basterds,’ he sat down and started writing this movie. It took him about a year,” Savone says.

FUNDING: “Quentin is very conscious of the budget. He understands that this is a business, so we really tried to make this movie for a reasonable amount.”

HIGH HURDLES: “Nothing has been easy on this movie. Christoph (Waltz) was injured in the beginning of the shoot and wasn’t able to get back on a horse so (we) put him in a wagon. We had our set built in Mammoth; then for the first time in 20 years, there was no snow in Mammoth. In no way would Quentin ever let us make fake snow, so we had to tear down the set and move to Jackson Hole, Wyo.”

DOMINO EFFECT: “It’s a blessing working with Quentin because everyone wants to be part of his movies. Dr. King Schultz was written for Christoph. Then when Quentin finally met Jamie, he realized that he was Django.”
