    Quentin Tarantino Shelves THE HATEFUL EIGHT Over a Script Leak | Collider

    In a strange turn of events, a little more than a week after announcing that Quentin Tarantino would be making the Western The Hateful Eight his next picture, he’s now thinking about shelving it. Literally. He’s considering publishing the story first and then possibly revisiting it as a film some time in the next five years. Why? Well, it seems that a copy of the script sent out to a small circle of actors has been leaked, and Tarantino is so distraught over that fact that he’s thinking about scrapping production plans. Hit the jump for more.

    quentin-tarantinoDeadline reports that Tarantino may turn The Hateful Eight into a book before adapting it for a film, in part because of an inner circle betrayal. Here’s Tarantino’s reaction:

    “I’m very, very depressed. I finished a script, a first draft, and I didn’t mean to shoot it until next winter, a year from now. I gave it to six people, and apparently it’s gotten out today … I gave it to one of the producers on Django Unchained, Reggie Hudlin, and he let an agent come to his house and read it. That’s a betrayal, but not crippling because the agent didn’t end up with the script. There is an ugly maliciousness to the rest of it. I gave it to three actors: Michael Madsen, Bruce Dern, Tim Roth. The one I know didn’t do this is Tim Roth. One of the others let their agent read it and that agent has now passed it on to everyone in Hollywood. I don’t know how these ****ing agents work, but I’m not making this next. I’m going to publish it, and that’s it for now. I give it out to six people and if I can’t trust them to that degree, then I have no desire to make it. I’ll publish it. I’m done. I’ll move on to the next thing. I’ve got ten more where that came from.”

    You’d think maybe Tarantino would want to channel his reaction to this betrayal into a presumably vengeful film, if the title is any indication, but who am I to tell him what to do. He did say he’d likely write a big part for Bruce Dern for his next film, which was one of two (including The Hateful Eight) that have been on his mind recently. He didn’t give any details on that project (obviously), but The Wrap may have a lead on Tarantino’s next film, saying:

    Tarantino has been considering a prison movie of sorts and has immersed himself in the details of the Robert Blake case, though a representative for Blake told TheWrap several weeks ago that Tarantino has not reached out to the former “Baretta” star, who was acquitted of killing his wife.

    In the meantime, Tarantino is focused on finding out the source of the leak:

    “I hadn’t given it to Christoph, I haven’t given it to Sam Jackson. I gave it to three mother****ing actors. We met in a place and I put it in their hands. Reggie Hudlin’s agent never had a copy. It’s got to be either the agents of Dern or Madsen. Please name names.” [emphasis mine]

    quentin-tarantino-the-hateful-eightAnd should you eventually find a copy of his script online, here’s what the iconic director has to say about that:

    “I am not talking out of both sides of my mouth, because I do like the fact that everyone eventually posts it, gets it and reviews it on the net. Frankly, I wouldn’t want it any other way. I like the fact that people like my ****, and that they go out of their way to find it and read it. But I gave it to six mother****ing people! Starting this week, I’ll be setting meetings with publishers.”

    Though it sounds like you won’t see it in theaters any time soon, it’s likely that you’ll be able to pick it up in book form before long.

    So that's why Bruce Dern only has one ear now.

    Now we're going to have to wait even longer for the next QT film. :(

    Quentin Tarantino THE HATEFUL EIGHT Synopsis Revealed; Staged Reading of the Script Announced | Collider

    FILM INDEPENDENT ANNOUNCES WORLD PREMIERE

    OF A STAGED READING OF THE HATEFUL EIGHT

    BY QUENTIN TARANTINO

    LOS ANGELES, CA (April 3, 2014) — Film Independent, the nonprofit arts organization that produces the Film Independent Spirit Awards and the Los Angeles Film Festival, has announced today the World Premiere of a Staged Reading of Quentin Tarantino’s unmade script The Hateful Eight. This special, once in a lifetime event, will be held on Thursday, April 24 at LACMA’s Bing Theater. The Hateful Eight is the unproduced Tarantino script that made headlines when he decided to shut down production after the script leaked without his approval. The event will not be recorded or live streamed.

    “Quentin Tarantino is a key figure in the independent creative community,” said Josh Welsh, President of Film Independent. “We are thrilled that Quentin will be holding the World Premiere Staged Reading of his script of The Hateful Eight with Film Independent at LACMA. Film Independent supports diversity, innovation and uniqueness of vision with events like the Spirit Awards, the Los Angeles Film Festival, our Filmmaker Labs, as well as our year-round film programing curated by Elvis Mitchell. We offer unique cinematic experiences to the people of Los Angeles, and this event is going to deliver just that.”

    The Hateful Eight follows the steadily ratcheting tension that develops after a blizzard diverts a stagecoach from its route, and traps a pitiless and mistrustful group which includes a competing pair of bounty hunters, a renegade Confederate soldier, and a female prisoner in a saloon in the middle of nowhere.

    The event will take place at the LACMA Bing Theater on Thursday, April 24 at 8:00 pm. All proceeds go towards supporting the year-round programing efforts of Film Independent at LACMA.
