The next film that was supposed to come from legendary director Quentin Tarantino was titled The Hateful Eight. The script had a genera announced, the final draft was finished and Tarantino wanted to start shooting in the summer. But all of those plans have been blown apart just like Marvin’s head in Pulp Fiction as Deadline is reporting that someone leaked Tarantino’s script, promoting him to shelve the project.
Tarantino apparently gave the script to three actors as well as a couple other people, and one of them leaked it. Whether it was with malicious intentions or not, it’s safe to say that Tarantino is very pissed off.
“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 fucking 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.”
It’s starting to sound that a guy who got famous emulating old pulp fiction novels on film has found himself in the middle of a real life mystery.
