If something has kanye-west in recent months, they are enemies. West has grabbed several headlines in recent months, but unfortunately it hasn’t been for his talent or musical creations, but rather for seeking trouble with various celebrities. He now went against one of the most recognized directors in the industry: Quentin Tarantino. And it is that Kanye West claims to be the creator of the original idea of Django Unchained.
In an interview with Piers Morgan, West claimed that the successful film was inspired by an idea that Tarantino stole from him. In his words, it all started in 2005. After collaborating with Jamie Foxx on the song “Gold Digger”, West pitched the actor some ideas for a slave-themed music video. Although the video was never made, West was surprised to see that many of his ideas made it into the 2012 film.
“Tarantino can write a movie about slavery where, in fact, he and Jamie (Foxx) got the idea from me. Because the idea of Django I presented to both of them as well as the video for “Gold Digger”. And then Tarantino turned it into a movie.”
Fortunately for Foxx and Tarantino, the singer seems to have forgiven the situation and will not initiate any type of criminal action against you. West was recently questioned on his social networks about which actor he would like to play him in a hypothetical biopic about his life. His answer was Jamie Foxx, whom he called “one of the greatest geniuses.”
In Django Unchained, a former slave joins forces with a German bounty hunter who frees him and helps hunt down the South’s most wanted criminals. All in the hope of finding his long-lost wife. Despite its complex subject matter and long running time, the film was a box office success, grossing more than $425 million dollars against a budget of $100 million. In addition, he won two Oscars: Best Supporting Actor for Christoph Waltz and Best Original Screenplay for Quentin Tarantino.
Do you think Kanye West really had anything to do with the creation of Django Unchained? You can currently find the film on HBO Max.
John Joseph Cruz I am one of those who always defended Robert Pattinson as Batman and can see the same movie in the cinema up to 7 times. My guilty pleasure? Low budget horror movies.
