Quentin Tarantino will attend the International Rome Film Festival on Friday, in order to receive a special lifetime achievement award and to present his latest film, Django Unchained, which will screen for the first time outside of North America. During that brief stop in Rome, he will be shielded from the media.
The Rome festival and Warner Bros Italia, which is distributing the film in Italy, are tightly controlling Friday’s events. There are no press events scheduled, they have completely banned the media from the award ceremony and have limited the screening to a small bunch of domestic media.
In addition to Tarantino, Jamie Foxx and Christoph Waltz will reportedly also be on hand for the premiere, and will be joined by Franco Nero, the star of the original Django who is living in Rome, and Ennio Morricone, the five-time Oscar-winning composer whose music is closely tied with the Spaghetti Western genre. »
