                            'Django/Zorro': Release date, plot, cast, and everything you need to know about the crossover comic book-based Quentin Tarantino movie

The comic series 'Django/Zorro' is finally headed to the big screen. Quentin Tarantino has reportedly roped in Jerrod Carmichael to co-write a 'Django/Zorro' movie based on the crossover comic book series of the same name.

News that the crossover is in works first surfaced in the wake of the 2014 Sony Hack revealing several emails between Tarantino and the then-Sony boss Amy Pascal. An email from Tarantino read, "D/Z could be really fun!" and Pascal described the project as "super cool." Since then, sources have reported several times that the film adaptation is real and that Carmichael is working on the script although they differed on whether he is writing it on his own with Tarantino overseeing the project, or if the duo is co-writing with another writer on board.

Plot

Tarantino's project is set to adapt the comic series written by Matt Wagener and art by Esteve Polls — where the comic served as the official sequel to the 2012 film 'Django Unchained'. Here is the comic series synopsis: "The official 'Django Unchained' sequel, uniting the gun-blazing Western hero with the legendary swordsman of literature, film, and comics: Zorro! Set several years after the events of 'Django Unchained', Django again pursues evil men in his role as a bounty hunter."

"Taking to the roads of the American Southwest, he encounters the aged and sophisticated Diego de la Vega by sheer chance. Django is fascinated by this unusual character, the first wealthy white man he's met who seems totally unconcerned with the color of his skin... who can hold his own in a fight. Django hires on as Diego's bodyguard and is soon drawn into a fight to free the local indigenous people from brutal servitude. Learning so much from the older man (as he did from King Schultz), he discovers that slavery isn't exclusive to his people, as he even dons the mask of Zorro in their mission of mercy!"

Cast

While the cast is largely undecided, it will be exciting to see Jamie Foxx reprise his role from 'Django Unchained'.

Trailer
