Just days after announcing that DJANGO UNCHAINED #1 has sold out, we learned this morning that Quentin Tarantino’s DJANGO UNCHAINED has been nominated for Best Picture and Original Screenplay by the Academy Awards!

Reggie Hudlin, adaptor of the DJANGO UNCHAINED comic book miniseries and a producer on the film, spoke with LOS ANGELES TIMES/Hero Complex, COMIC BOOK RESOURCES, COMICS ALLIANCE, NEWSARAMA and MTV GEEK about bringing Quentin Tarantino’s original screenplay for the film to the comic book page.

“Quentin and I, we love to talk and one of the things we love to talk about is comic books, specifically western comic books,” Hudlin said. “The main thing was to be as faithful as possible to the original script.”
