Quentin Tarantino ready to film The Hateful Eight?

January 14th, 2014 by Marc Comments

With Quentin Tarantino back on top form with his last movie, Django Unchained (above), we’re really excited to see what he does next… and it looks like he’s not resting on his laurels.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, the director is returning to the wild west with a new movie called  The Hateful Eight, which he hopes to direct this summer. Probably.

Speculation is that Tarantino “could be upping the ante, playing off the title of John Sturges’ 1960 film The Magnificent Seven, which in turn was a remake of Akira Kurosawa’s 1954 Seven Samurai.”

“No one has been cast yet, but Tarantino has reached out to veteran casting director Victoria Thomas, who worked on Django, to work with him on casting the movie, say several insiders. A part has been written for Christoph Waltz, who starred in Tarantino’s Django and Inglourious Basterds.”

So, are we excited? You better believe we are…

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….
