'Kill Bill: The Whole Bloody Affair' Coming to Theaters in 2015?

12 hours ago | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

As many of you may know, director Quentin Tarantino's original version of Kill Bill was just one, extremely long film. The four-hour movie originally debuted at the Cannes Film Festival in 2003, before The Weinstein Company asked the filmmaker to cut it into Kill Bill Vol. 1 and Kill Bill Vol. 2.

Since its initial release over a decade ago, several fans have been wondering if the filmmaker's original version will ever see the light of day, which has since been dubbed Kill Bill: The Whole Bloody Affair. Director Quentin Tarantino teased during his Comic-Con appearance yesterday that he has been in discussions with The Weinstein Company about a limited theatrical release sometime next year. Here's what Quentin Tarantino had to say, revealing that a new extended animated sequence will be included that runs over a half-hour, and was completed independently by Japanese anime studio I.G.

Quentin Tarantino confirms The Hateful Eight is going ahead

22 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Appearing at the San Diego Comic-Con to discuss the upcoming comic book crossover Django/Zorro from Dynamite Entertainment, filmmaker Quentin Tarantino confirmed that The Hateful Eight is going to move ahead, stating during the Q&A that: “Yes, we are going to be doing The Hateful Eight. All for you. We weren’t sure about it but I just decided now.”

Tarantino offered no further details on the status of the Western, which he put the breaks on earlier in the year following an online leak of the screenplay. Earlier this month, Kurt Russell claimed that The Hateful Eight would go into production early next year, and it is assumed that Tarantino will stick with the same cast as the live script reading he held back in April, which also featured Samuel L. Jackson, Walton Goggins, Michael Madsen, Tim Roth, Amber Tamblyn, Bruce Dern, James Remar, Dana Hourrier, James Parks, »

Confirmed: Quentin Tarantino Says ‘The Hateful Eight’ Is Next!

28 July 2014 2:30 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

I think we can all breath a sigh of relief, after it was announced Quentin Tarantino will finally be shooting his Western film, The Hateful Eight, and it’s been confirmed directly by the great director himself this weekend at Sdcc 2014. On the Panel for Django Vs Zorro sequel comic, he was asked the relevant question  and replied with the truth:

“Yeah – We’re going to be doing The Hateful Eight.’

It seems like a lifetime since the controversy in January this year over the script being leaked on the internet, and it seems Tarantino has waved off his disputes, ready to move on and do what his career has been leading up to. The director has commented that he has “calmed down” over the situation after losing his fight in court against the website he accused of leaking his script. Bruce Dern, Samuel L. Jackson and Michael Madsen have »

Quentin Tarantino officially confirms ‘The Hateful Eight’ moving forward

27 July 2014 5:44 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

It’s Sunday and the final day of the 2014 San Diego Comic-Con, typically the quietest day of the convention. After a crazy weekend of Avengers: Age of Ultron, Ant-Man, Guardians of the Galaxy 2, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Godzilla 2, Skull Island, Mad Max: Fury Road, Crimson Peak, a ton of TV, and comic news, we’ve got one last big film announcement. As reported by Deadline from the Dynamite Comic’s panel, while promoting the Django Unchained/Zorro crossover comic, Quentin Tarantino confirmed that he is officially moving forward with his new western The Hateful Eight.

With hopes to begin shooting in early 2015, The Hateful Eight had a rough start after Tarantino gave the first draft of the script to a small group of actors and it was leaked online soon after. The director threw a very public hissy fit and threatened to never make the film. He had »

At Comic-Con, Quentin Tarantino Confirms The Hateful Eight For 2015

27 July 2014 5:14 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Would any Comic-Con celebrating the best, brightest and downright coolest in cinema be complete without that most audacious of filmmakers himself, Quentin Tarantino? I think not. So, it was truly thrilling to hear about the Pulp Fiction director taking the stage this year at the panel for Dynamite Comics’ upcoming Django Unchained-Zorro comic.

However, that intriguing venture was by no means the most exciting part of Tarantino’s appearance this year. After a fan pressed him about his troubled Western The Hateful Eight, the filmmaker confirmed that the film would be moving forward and rolling cameras in 2015. In response, the room erupted in deafening cheers.

The Hateful Eight got off to a strong start earlier this year, with Tarantino voicing a great deal of excitement for the movie and putting together a cast that included Bruce Dern, Michael Madsen and Tim Roth. However, an early draft of the script »

Comic-Con: Quentin Tarantino Confirms 'Hateful Eight' Is Moving Forward

27 July 2014 4:14 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Last week, we reported that filmmaker Quentin Tarantino was heading to Comic-Con 2014 to present his Dynamite comic book series that combines characters from his hit 2012 Western Django Unchained with the iconic Zorro character. During the panel, the filmmaker confirmed that he is moving forward with his new Western The Hateful Eight.

Deadline reported just before the panel began that the filmmaker is eyeing an early 2015 start date, which lines up with a report from earlier this month where Kurt Russell revealed shooting will begin early next year. The director wouldn't divulge any more details about the project at the Comic-Con panel.

As you may know, The Hateful Eight almost never made it off the ground after the script was first completed. We reported in January that the first draft of his script was leaked, which lead to the lawsuit he filed against Gawker Media. After initially talking about shelving the project indefinitely, »

Quentin Tarantino Confirms He’ll Be Directing The Hateful Eight

27 July 2014 3:25 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

At a panel at San Diego Comic-Con 2014 for the first sequel ever to a Quentin Tarantino film, the comic book Django Meets Zorro, Tarantino tackled the question on everybody’s mind: The Hateful Eight. As you're aware, Tarantino was planning to shoot the Western as his next film until the script leaked online and he put everything on hold. During the Comic-Con panel, one of the audience members point blank asked Tarantino if he’ll be making the script as his next feature, following recent word that it could be heating back up again. Tarantino hemmed and hawed for a bit – before finally committing: “Yeah – We’re going to be doing The Hateful Eight.” So there you have it: The Hateful Eight will be the next Quentin Tarantino feature. The story follows a group of passengers on a stagecoach that get caught and trapped in a blizzard, where they're forced »

New TV Spot ‘Sin City: A Dame To Kill For’

22 July 2014 1:56 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Comic-book movies have mostly focused on the superhero world as of late, but in the early 2000s Hollywood was taking bigger chances on darker and more independent comics such as Road To Perdition, Ghost World and arguably the biggest of the bunch, Frank Miller’s Sin City. As a twisted anthology of noir tales set in the fictional Basin City, it gave us a cruel and violent world which brought the comic to life via the use of excessive green screen, allowing director’s Miller and Robert Rodriguez to stunningly recreate the graphic novels.

This latest TV spot seems to try and convince us of a more heroic feel with the line “When outlaws become heroes.” The big stars of the original’s impressive cast return with  few changes, the late Michael Clarke Duncan and the pregnant Devon Aoki are absent while Michael Madsen and Clive Owen have been replaced »

Kurt Russell: Quentin Tarantino's 'Hateful Eight' may shoot early next year

16 July 2014 7:30 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

(Cbr) Kurt Russell just made a lot of Quentin Tarantino fans happy. The "Death Proof" star recently appeared on Fox 29 in Philadelphia, where he revealed, “I’ve got a Tarantino project called "'The Hateful Eight' that looks like it may go somewhere around the beginning of the year.” Russell took part in a live reading of the script after it leaked online. For a while, Tarantino was going to scrap the project as a film, but in May word got out that it could begin shooting as early as November. Russell stars alongside Samuel L. Jackson in the Wild West film as rival bounty hunters who get stuck in a saloon as a blizzard rolls in. They will be joined by Walton Goggins’ Awol Confederate soldier, Amber Tamblyn’s convicted criminal, and characters played by Bruce Dern and Michael Madsen. (via FirstShowing.net) »

Tarantino's The Hateful Eight to Start Shooting Early 2015

15 July 2014 12:30 PM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Director Quentin Tarantino has calmed down a little since his Hateful Eight script leaked online earlier this year. At one point the filmmaker said that he was going to just shelve the project, but since then he did a live stage reading, and now the filmmaker is getting ready to put it into production. The news came in an interview with My Fox Philly, when actor Kurt Russell said:

"There's a Tarantino project called The Hateful Eight that looks like it may go somewhere around the beginning of the year."

Regardless of all the drama that has surrounded this script, it's awesome to hear that there are once again plans to bring this story to life. I'm a huge fan of westerns, and this sounds like it will be awesome. 

The story follows the "steadily ratcheting tension that develops after a blizzard diverts a stagecoach from its route, and traps »

Tarantino's The Hateful Eight now set to shoot next year

14 July 2014 10:53 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

The Hateful Eight seems certain to go ahead now, with Kurt Russell revealing he's on board, and shooting is set for early 2015.

News

It seems all but certain now that Quentin Tarantino is to make his once-aborted western The Hateful Eight his next film. Tarantino put the project into turnaround following the leak of the screenplay, launching a now-dropped legal case against Gawker in the aftermath of that. He's also held a live reading of the script, with the help of acting talent such as Samuel L Jackson, Bruce Dern, Michael Madsen, Kurt Russell and Amber Tamblyn.

And now it looks like he's going to film it after all.

The latest news of The Hateful Eight has come from Kurt Russell, and he's revealed both that he's in the film, and that it's likely to shoot early in 2015. "I've a Tarantino project called The Hateful Eight that looks like it »

Kurt Russell Claims Quentin Tarantino Is Shooting 'The Hateful Eight' Early Next Year

14 July 2014 6:03 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

During a recent interview with MyFoxPhilly, Kurt Russell revealed that production is scheduled to begin in early 2015 on Quentin Tarantino's The Hateful Eight.

"I've got a Tarantino project called The Hateful Eight that looks like it may go somewhere around the beginning of the year."

Back in April, we reported that Quentin Tarantino is working on a new draft of the script with a different ending, and that production may start in the winter. However, another report from May revealed that shooting is reportedly set to begin this November in Wyoming.

Of course, the movie almost never happened at all, after the first draft of his script leaked back in January, which prompted the filmmaker to file a lawsuit against Gawker Media shortly thereafter. Quentin Tarantino revealed after the leak that he was shelving the production, but the filmmaker had a change of heart, instead hosting a live reading of the script. »

Quentin Tarantino’s The Hateful Eight Still On; Only Slightly Delayed

14 July 2014 4:25 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

The last we heard about Quentin Tarantino’s highly anticipated Western The Hateful Eight was that it would be shooting in November.  This was a welcome turn of events in a development saga that had turned somewhat sordid.  First, an early draft of the script leaked causing Tarantino to can the film and instead stage a live read.  So getting a new Qt movie at all was a blessing.  Now comes the delay.  But the good news is that it’s apparently a minor one. Kurt Russell is claiming that the film will actually be shooting next year.  Which, by the way, appears to lend some credibility to the idea that the cast of the live read of Hateful Eight would be returning for the film version.  That cast included Russell, Samuel L. Jackson, Bruce Dern, Michael Madsen, Kurt Russell, James Remar, Amber Tamblyn, Walton Goggins, Zoe Bell and Tim Roth. »

Quentin Tarantino to shoot The Hateful Eight early next year, according to Kurt Russell

14 July 2014 12:51 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Back in January, Quentin Tarantino was all set to follow up Django Unchained with another Western – that is until Gawker posted a leaked version of the script for The Hateful Eight online, with Quentin then deciding to take his ball home and put the brakes on the film. A few months later at Cannes, Tarantino revealed that he’d been considering if and how to move forward with the project, which was followed by a rumour that cameras would start rolling in November.

Well, it looks like that rumour was wide of the mark, but only slightly, as Kurt Russell has indicated that The Hateful Eight will go ahead, and is likely to shoot in the early part of 2015, with the Death Proof star telling MyFoxPhilly that “I’ve got a Tarantino project called The Hateful Eight that looks like it may go somewhere around the beginning of the year. »

Kurt Russell Says Quentin Tarantino's 'The Hateful Eight' Might Shoot In Early 2015

14 July 2014 12:44 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

You know the story by now: Quentin Tarantino decided that "The Hateful Eight" would be his next film, an early version of the script leaked and then he said he wasn't going to make it at all, and then he was all like, "Fuck it, I'm gonna keep working on the script anyway."  Earlier this spring, the director staged a live read with a starry ensemble — Samuel L. JacksonKurt RussellTim RothAmber TamblynWalton GogginsMichael MadsenBruce DernJames ParksDenis MenochetDana GourrierZoe BellJames Remar — which our review noted was a flawed but compelling re-enactment of the first draft script. But with Qt making revisions, he may already have his eye on getting this thing made again. Kurt Russell (who played bounty hunter John Ruth in the live read) was asked by Cinema Blend about what's coming up, and the actor provided a brief »

Kurt Russell Reveals The Hateful Eight May Film Early Next Year

14 July 2014 12:17 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

It’s been an unusually rocky road to production for Quentin Tarantino’s Django Unchained follow-up The Hateful Eight. Of course, the director’s status as a cinematic legend ensured that the project received a huge amount of media scrutiny as soon as its title was unveiled back in January, but after a copy of the script was leaked early in development, it seemed possible that the filmmaker would abandon the project altogether.

Luckily, news got a little more promising for The Hateful Eight as time went on. A live reading of the script occurred to widespread acclaim back in April, and a few weeks later, we got word that Tarantino would be reuniting that same group of actors from the live reading to shoot the film in November. For those of you who need a refresher, that impressive crop of actors included Kurt Russell, Samuel L. Jackson, Michael Madsen, »
