With just five months until its release, Quentin Tarantino's upcoming Django Unchained has finally wrapped filming. Countless setbacks in the form of certain roles being recast multiple times delayed the shoot, which, according to a blog post by producer Stacey Sher on her Facebook, totaled "126 (or 130 depending on who is doing the counting)" days.
The post, in full:
Well, we did it! At 1:23 AM, we wrapped up the extraordinary journey that has been the filming of Django Unchained. 126 (or 130 depending on who is doing the counting) of challenging, magical, incredible adventures from Simi Valley, to the Alabama Hills, to the frozen Grand Tetons, to the swamps and plantations of New Orleans and back to Simi Valley once again! It has been an honor to go on this epic journey with the greatest partners: My fellow producers, the unbelievably brilliant cast, the most inspiring and hardworking crew (not to mention the most fun) all brought together by the genius and imagination of QT! Post Production here we come! Django, we will never forget you.
The film will now move into editing, and should make its anticipated Christmas day release date. Good show, guys.
