Kurt Russell is no longer appearing in the new Tarantino flick, Django Unchained. This is really sad because Russell is one of my favorite lead players and has recently not been starring in too many films. He took over the role of Ace Woody in Tarantino's latest film when Kevin Costner bowed out of the role early on. Russell always adds a certain flair to his characters and was an excellent addition to Death Proof. I was really looking forward to his performance in this film as I'm sure many others were.
There's been no real specification given as to why he left the film. An argument with Quintin? A larger than life ego? Creative differences? I guess we may never know. Either way, the film will not be the same without him.
