Director Quentin Tarantino has wrapped filming for his new movie, Django Unchained, in Wyoming, including a scene at the National Elk Refuge.

Via News One:

The crew saw the elk from the highway and asked for permission to have the actors walking and riding horses among the animals, refuge director Steve Kallin said. He said that was denied because it could have caused a disturbance but they were allowed to shoot some footage with elk and bison in the background at the refuge’s northern feedground.

“We did have very tightly controlled access and ensured there was no disturbance to the elk or bison,” he said.

Django Unchained is a remake of a western about a slave who becomes a bounty hunter, with Jamie Foxx in the title role. Leonardo DiCaprio and Samuel L. Jackson also have roles in the movie, which is mostly being filmed in New Orleans.
