The actress joins a cast that already includes Foxx, Leonardo DiCaprio, Christoph Waltz, Don Johnson, Kurt Russell and Samuel L. Jackson.

Deadline notes that while she was Tarantino’s choice from the beginning, the possibility of “making a discovery in the role” appealed to him, and he did perform “a long casting search before settling on Ms Washington for what is essentially the film’s female lead.
