Production quietly began recently on director Quentin Tarantino's revenge Western Django Unchained, which is slated for release December 25. The filmmaker recently sung the praises of Melody Ranch in Santa Clarita, California, where filming has been taking place. Here's what he had to say below.

"It's a blast shooting here. Most other western towns look like dollhouses. This has the complete look. It's fantastic."

It isn't known if the entire shoot will take place at the Melody Ranch, but Quentin Tarantino seems to be incorporating Western-themed music into the shoot. Jim Croce's song "I Got a Name" was playing over loud speakers during a scene where two cowboys walk through a small town.
