Original ‘Django’ to get re-release Dec. 21

Reissue specialty distrib to screen 1966 spaghetti Western

Timed to coincide with the Weinstein Co.’s release of Quentin Tarantino’s “Django Unchained,” reissue specialty distrib Rialto Pictures will theatrically launch Sergio Corbucci’s 1966 spaghetti western “Django” on Dec. 21.

Rialto plans to release the original in most major Stateside markets during late-night showtimes and other special engagements; Weinstein launches “Django Unchained” wide on Christmas Day.

“Unchained” — a stylized re-telling of Corbucci’s classic — represents Tarantino’s latest take on a classic movie genre, after pics like “Pulp Fiction,” “Jackie Brown,” the “Kill Bill” double-bill and most recently, “Inglourious Basterds.”

The Weinstein pic, which stars Jamie Foxx, Christoph Waltz and Leonardo DiCaprio, centers on a slave-turned-bounty hunter (Foxx), who ebmarks on a journey of revenge through the post-Civil War South. The original “Django” helped establish the spaghetti westerns and lifted Italian actor Franco Nero to international stardom.

Rialto releases on average four to five reissues each year. The company launched the original 1990 “Total Recall” this summer to coincide with Sony’s remake, starring Colin Farrell and Jessica Biel.
