Exclusive: First Look at Danièle Watts and James Remar from Django Unchained

The Weinstein Co. have provided Blackfilm.com with a first look at Danièle Watts and James Remar from Quentin Tarantino‘s highly anticipated film, “Django Unchained,” starring Jamie Foxx, Christoph Waltz, Leonardo DiCaprio, Kerry Washington, and Samuel L. Jackson.

Set in the South two years before the Civil War, DJANGO UNCHAINED stars Academy Award winner Jamie Foxx as Django, a slave whose brutal history with his former owners lands him face-to-face with German-born bounty hunter Dr. King Schultz (Academy Award winner Christoph Waltz). Schultz is on the trail of the murderous Brittle brothers, and only Django can lead him to his bounty. The unorthodox Schultz acquires Django with a promise to free him upon the capture of the Brittles–dead or alive.

Watts, who recently was shown in Showtime’s Weeds for its final season, plays Coco who works in at the Cleopatra Club with Leornardo DiCaprio’s character. She’s currently in post-production on a feature-length film, titled Urgency, which is co-written by here and edited by IGIGI studios.

She is a graduate of the University of Southern California, School of Theatre and has appeared on Criminal Minds, Detroit 187, Cold Case, and The Strange Thing about the Johnsons, a shocking short film that went viral after appearing at Slamdance and The New York Film Festival last year.

Remar, a veteran of many films, including playing the murderous Albert Ganz in the 1982 comedy/thriller 48 Hrs. with Eddie Murphy, plays Ace Speck, a member of the Speck Brothers, who once owned Django.

The Massachusetts native, who recently played Harry Morgan in Dexter, spoke this summer to Collider.com about his experience on Django and working Quentin Tarantino; stating it was “an apex, pinnacle experience, like working with the Pope.”
