Django Unchained

The Eastern Sierra will once again be immortalized on the Silver Screen with the filming of “Django Unchained” directed by Quentin Tarantino. The film will be shot in Mammoth California and at least one source claims that some filming will take place in Lone Pine, a small town famous for its Western film history. This Western will have many great actors, Kurt Russell, Jamie Foxx, Don Johnson, Leonardo DiCaprio and Samuel L. Jackson to name a few, playing key roles.

It is always exciting to see the movie industry turn to the ideal Western setting for a great Western film and the small towns from Lone Pine to Mammoth CA. appreciate the added business from the presence of the cast and crew.

The film is to be released in December 2012 so I think it’s fair to assume that there will be some long hard days ahead for these guys. I would just like to tell them… If you start to get tired just look over your shoulder, you might see John Wayne off in the distance with that “let’s keep it movin’ pilgrim” look on his face. Make sure you take some time to admire the beauty of the Sierras and try to get down to Bishop to visit Erick Schat’s Bakery, “home of the original Sheepherder Bread”. Quentin if you Kurt or any of the other cast and crew feel like doing some creek fishing look me up. I’d be happy to show you the best places to hook up with some nice Rainbow and Brown Trout! The film is sure to be a hit and we’re all looking forward to seeing it.

I would never use the term, “Break a Leg” to a creek fisherman because that could mean the end of the season, but to the Cast of Django Unchained, Break A Leg!
