Kevin Costner Exits Django Unchained


Kevin Costner will no longer be playing sadistic slave trainer Ace Woody in Django Unchained. Deadline reports that the actor gave up the project over scheduling issues, with his commitments to the upcoming Superman reboot Man of Steel and a History Channel mini-series about the Hatfields and the McCoys taking precedent over Quentin Tarantino's Western. There's no word on who will take over Costner's role as the sidekick to villain Calvin Candie (Leonardo DiCaprio), and still no news on a female lead. Deadline]
