Is Tarantino moving ahead with Hateful eight?

April 23rd, 2014 by Marc Comments

Remember three months or so ago when Quentin Tarantino threw his toys out of the pram when details of his latest script, Hateful Eight, was leaked (No? Ok, check here) and he was going to simply release it as a screenplay?

Well, for the sake of  “Why’d I say that?!”, Tarantino did add that he “might” come back to it at some point in the future. Well, it looks like the future is indeed now.

At a one-off stage reading at the weekend at the Theatre at the Ace Hotel in downtown Los Angeles, Tarantino, according to Darkhorizons, told the audience he was  “working right now on a second draft” as the ending may well be totally removed or rewritten.

Samuel L. Jackson, Tim Roth, Kurt Russell, Amber Tamblyn, Bruce Dern, Walton Goggins, James Parks, Michael Madsen and James Remar (pictured above) all attended the reading of the old west tale which sees eight people trapped in a haberdashery during a blizzard.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
