Special effects specialist Greg Nicotero werkte al aan meerdere films samen met Tarantino, waaronder Pulp Fiction en de Kill Bill films. Hij sprak zich onlangs uit over de cast, het script en de stijl van Tarantino. Hij zei het volgende:
"I love the script for 'Django,' I think it's great. Jaimie Foxx and Christoph Waltz and Leonardo DiCaprio, Kurt Russell, Kerry Washington, it's what I love about Quentin is that he is and will forever be an old school filmmaker."
"There are not a lot of special effects. It's all about his actors and it's so cinematic for him. We don't shoot anything digital, he uses film, one camera, we don't have five cameras shooting. That's it. It's inspiring. It's inspiring to think about the fact that that's how movies were made for years and years and years, and I'm not saying that digital technology doesn't have its positives, but I love that Quentin is old school."
De film moet in Nederland op 27 december uitkomen.
