The upcoming project badass from Quentin Tarantino, recently revealed the be titled “The Hateful Eight” is on hold. Indefinitely. Haven’t you people learned nothing? You don’t break the trust of Tarantino. Shit. This is why we can’t have nice things, Hollywood.
The reason for the hold was a leaked script for the project earlier this month. Tarantino was understandable upset and told Deadline he will be moving on to a different project for the time being. However, we may see “The Hateful Eight” in an alternate publication.
“I’m not making this next,” Tarantino says. “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.”
Though it seems that idea man Tarantino already knows what will replace the film on his schedule.
“The idea was, I was going to write two scripts,” he explains of the Western’s origins. “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.”
Among the actors said to have been sent copies of The Hateful Eight are Bruce Dern, Michael Madsen and Tim Roth. Tarantino also implies that parts had been written for both Christoph Waltz and Samuel L. Jackson, but that neither talent had yet been sent the screenplay.
