How Hollywood Already Ruined Quentin Tarantino’s Next Movie

Quentin Tarantino may have just finished the script for forthcoming his western ‘The Hateful Eight,’ which was set to be his next film. We say “was” because Hollywood bulls— has caused the filmmaker to pull the plug on the project already.

Just about everyone with a pulse was excited that Quentin Tarantino was set to delve even deeper into the ultra-violent western style he explored with with his last film ‘Django Unchained.’ That film was actually what Tarantino referred to as a “southern,” but it gave him so much confidence in his chops with that style of film making that he began moving forward on the full-on western ‘The Hateful Eight.’

Tarantino recently finished the script and was even beginning to pass it on to a very small circle of his frequent-collaborators, which included Bruce Dern, whom he’d already expressed interest in casting, Tim Roth and Michael Madsen. One of the people he gave the script, gave it to their agent, who then leaked it. Tarantino is so pissed off that he’s just going to publish it as a book (for now) and move on to his next flick.

“I’m very, very depressed,” said Tarantino. “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.”

Does he know exactly who leaked the script? No. It does sound like he has a good idea though. “I hadn’t given it to Christoph [Waltz], I haven’t given it to Sam Jackson,” Tarantino said. “I gave it to three motherf—ing actors. We met in a place, and I put it in their hands … It’s got to be either the agents of Dern or Madsen. Please name names.”

This is a bummer, but it sounds like Quentin has some other tricks up his sleeve. “The idea was, I was going to write two scripts,” he said. “I wasn’t going to shoot the Western until next winter, and I have been full of piss and vinegar about the other one. So now I’ll do that one.”
