Director Quentin Tarantino rewrote the ending of Django Unchained at the last minute after realising that his planned finale wasn’t going to work. The film’s lead star, Jamie Foxx said Tarantino decided that the finale he had planned was not the same as he has visualised it, it was reported.
Foxx said, “On the spur of the moment, he rewrote the end of the movie. He lost his cool and said, My ending doesn’t work. When we asked what he was going to do, he said, Just give me a second.”
Foxx revealed that moments later, Tarantino returned from his trailer with the perfect ending. “When a writer pens a script for a movie, he goes into his cabin and remains there for nine months. This dude just went into his trailer,” Foxx said.
The actor, who plays the titular character in the film, says the filmmaker is truly gifted. “There are talented people and God-gifted people. He’s a God-gifted guy because you could tell that there was trouble when he went away. But when he returned, he was like, ‘I got this now.’”
