It looks like 50/50 star Joseph Gordon-Levitt could end up being the next actor to join Quentin Tarantino's spaghetti southern Django Unchained. The actor is currently in talks to join the film production. According to the report he wants to do it, but he has some scheduling issues that he will need to work out to make it happen. If he can't fit it in somehow then he obviously wont be able to do it.
The film would reunite Gordon-Levitt with Leonardo DiCaprio for the first time since Inception. He would also join the rest of the cast that includes Jamie Foxx, Samuel L. Jackson, Christoph Waltz, Kurt Russell and Don Johnson. There's no word on the character that Gordon-Levitt will play in the moive.
Tarantino plans to start shooting the film in New Orleans in January, which is around the time Sony releases Gordon Levitt's bike messenger thriller Premium Rush, which the actor has press commitments for.
The Weinstein Company has set the films release date for Christmas Day 2012, and I can't wait! Gordon-Levitt is a fantastic young actor who will make a great addition to the cast.
