LOS ANGELES —Director Quentin Tarantino is confronting a multi-million dollar copyright infringement claim over his cult ‘Django Unchained’.
The ‘ Pulp Fiction’ movie producer has been named in legal action alongside bosses at The Weinstein Company and Columbia Pictures, amid allegations he stole the premise of the 2012 film from a script, called ‘Freedom’, written by Oscar Colvin, Jr and Torrance J Colvin, reported Variety.
“Before Django Freeman (Jamie Foxx’s character), there was an escaped slave named Jackson Freeman who desired to purchase his family’s freedom from a malevolent plantation owner,” reads the court papers, filed in Washington, DC.
“Before Dr Schultz (Christoph Waltz’s character), there was Samson, another white man, who would assist Mr Freeman in his efforts to rescue his loved one(s) from slavery.”
They also branded Tarantino an “admitted thief”, quoting him as stating, “I steal from every single movie ever made.”
Tarantino, who claims to have made “Django Unchained” as a tribute to Sergio Corbucci’s 1966 Italian film “Django”, has yet to comment on the lawsuit.
