Well according to Filmjunk:
Mr. DiCaprio is currently in negotiations to play, Calvin Candie in the movie Django: Unchained. Calvin Candie is a man who uses part of his southern plantation for gladiatorial fights amongst his male slaves.
Django: Unchained, which is being written and directed by Quentin Tarantino, is being set up to be an homage to the original Sergio Corbucci (directed (1966) western which starred Franco Nero (The Mercenary)
This movie is also being setup to pay homage to the Takashi Miike directed Sukikyaki Western Django (2007) for which Mr. Tarantino had a small part in.
