Tarantino Down To Wire On Editing DJANGO UNCHAINED

Yesterday we had a production video from The Hobbit showing how the crew was working frantically down to the last minute to ensure that the film was ready for its premier. Given that its first public screening was scheduled for today in New Zealand, I sure hope they made it.

Another film that is still being worked on with while its premier rapidly approaches is Quentin Tarantino’s Django Unchained. According to In Contention’s Kris Tapley, the director is toiling away in an editing bay to bring the film into shape.

Django Unchained is the first film that Tarantino finds himself without longtime collaborators editor Sally Menke and producer Lawrence Binder and he might be having a problem dealing with the loss of the two voices he has relied on in the past.

With Tarantino probably just days away from having to turn in the completed film, I will admit that this is a bit worrying. Is Tarantino trying to trim the film for time or has he had a last minute inspiration on how to better layout the film’s narrative?

Django Unchained is scheduled for theaters on Christmas Day.
