This has to be one of the oddest release dates in quite some time. According to Gitesh Pandya (via ROS), Quentin Tarantino’s upcoming film, DJANGO UNCHAINED, is set to hit theaters on Christmas Day 2012. Yup, that’s right, Tarantino will be bringing his slavery-based spaghetti Western love letter to theaters on Christmas Day just over a year from now.

The film will follow a freed slave (Jamie Foxx is considered the frontrunner for this role), who attempts to reunite with his wife, as well as take out his former owner, the evil Calvin Candie, played by Leonardo DiCaprio. Christoph Waltz and Samuel L. Jackson will also star in the film.

Personally, I absolutely love this news. The film will follow such projects as THE HOBBIT and THE LONE RANGER in 2012, and I think it will be quite the counter-programming come Christmas of that year. What better excuse to get away from the family than going to see a new Quentin Tarantino film? Count me more than in.
