‘Django Unchained’ begins filming in Louisiana on Monday

Quentin Tarantino’s Django Unchained recently wrapped in Wyoming, after spending time in Santa Clarita and Mammoth Lakes, CA, and is prepping to move to its next location.

On Monday (2/27), Django Unchained will move to the New Orleans area for the duration of the shoot, and rumor has it the Evergreen Plantation will be the movie’s first filming location in Louisiana.

According to a post on the historic site’s website, “Evergreen Plantation will be closed to the public Thursday, February 23rd, Friday the 24th and then February 27th thru March 10, 2012 for the filming of a major motion picture. Highway 18, in front of Evergreen will be closed February 27 thru March 9. We hope you will enjoy seeing Evergreen Plantation in this new motion picture.”

The plantation, which is located in Edgard, outside of New Orleans, would be a perfect location for the movie which centers around a slave-turned-bounty hunter (Django) who sets out to rescue his wife from Calvin Candie, a brutal Mississippi plantation owner. The schedule fits as well, assuming Thursday and Friday were for set up and filming begins on Monday.

Django Unchained stars Leonardo DiCaprio, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Samuel L. Jackson, and Jamie Foxx.

  1. Hi Jamie,

    My name is Iris Campbell and I’m an extra in the Movie Django Unchained. I play a cotton picker. I called you Ray in the Cotton field and said I only drink Red wine and you told me I must be a Christian. Well, your doing a great job as exspected as Django, I can’t wait to see the finished product. Everyone’s pretty kool on set and I’m having a great time so far. Being that your also a Comedian, I’d love to have your feed back on my short perody of Housewives of Mississippi on You Tube but if you look at it please keep in mind my 11 yr. old daughter filmed me but she did a pretty good, just not the best ending. If you have time to view it please let me know what you think by any form of contact you perfer. 504-975-9649 or iris_campbell200@hotmail.com or in person. I promise I’m not a celeb starr struct type of person.

    P.S. Love love loved when you told us that people that are stuck up are the ones with no real talent.
