Quentin Tarantino has completed filming on Django Unchained, producer Stacey Sher has revealed.

The producer announced the news on her Facebook page, adding that it was an "epic journey", as they shot in locations around California's Simi Valley and Alabama Hills, Wyoming's frozen Grand Tetons, and the swamps and plantations of New Orleans, reported Thompson On Hollywood.

"Well, we did it! At 1:23 AM, we wrapped up the extraordinary journey that has been the filming of Django Unchained," she wrote.

"It has been an honour to go on this epic journey with the greatest partners: My fellow producers, the unbelievably brilliant cast, the most inspiring and hardworking crew (not to mention the most fun) all brought together by the genius and imagination of QT! Post Production here we come! Django, we will never forget you," she added.

Jamie Foxx stars in the Western as the title character of a freed slave, who teams up with a bounty hunter (Christoph Waltz) as he tries to find his wife (played by Kerry Washington). Leonardo DiCaprio plays cruel and vicious plantation owner Calvin Candie, while Samuel L Jackson, Jonah Hill and RZA also have roles.

Stacey revealed: "126 (or 130 depending on who is doing the counting) of challenging, magical, incredible adventures from Simi Valley, to the Alabama Hills, to the frozen Grand Tetons, to the swamps and plantations of New Orleans and back to Simi Valley once again!"

Django Unchained is scheduled for release in UK cinemas next January.
