The next ninth film from director Quentin Tarantino was supposed to be The Hateful Eight, another spaghetti western much like Django Unchained was. But after the script was leaked by one of the six people he gave it to, the director has shelved the project.
But while the movie is no longer happening, the director has revealed three actors he had written parts for which means we can at least imagine what the film might have looked like. According to the Deadline piece in which Tarantino rants about the betrayal, he mentions that Bruce Dern, Michael Madsen and Tim Roth all received the script for The Hateful Eight.
Aside from the sideshow that is being created by this whole leak mess, movie fans can still picture what a Tarantino western would have been like had he cast Dern, Madsen and Roth in the lead roles. Tarantino told Deadline that he didn’t even give the script to Christoph Waltz or Samuel L. Jackson, which means this could have been a film that saw Tarantino return to some roots when it came to casting actors who rode to the top with him back in the 90s.
