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 »

"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. »
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. »

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. »

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. Jackson, Kurt Russell, Tim Roth, Amber Tamblyn, Walton Goggins, Michael Madsen, Bruce Dern, James Parks, Denis Menochet, Dana Gourrier, Zoe Bell, James 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 »

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, »

Whether or not you agree with his recent comments in Playboy, there's no denying Gary Oldman is one of the great actors of our time.
Ever since breaking out in 1986's "Sid and Nancy" as the self-destructing Sex Pistol Sid Vicious, Oldman has transformed himself from one role to the next. A true chameleon, the actor changes his voice for every part and is nearly unrecognizable in films like "True Romance" (1993) and "The Contender" (2000). Despite his enormous influence among fellow actors, Oldman shuns the spotlight and has only once been nominated for an Oscar. Oldman turns in yet another stirring performance (despite limited screen time) in this summer's "Dawn of the Planet of the Apes".
From his famous ex-wife to his rejection from a prestigious drama school, here are 27 things you probably don't know about Gary Oldman.
1. Gary Oldman was born on March 21, 1958 in London, England to Kathleen Cheriton and Leonard Bertram Oldman. »

Planet of the Apes (2001) Director: Tim Burton Stars: Mark Wahlberg, Tim Roth, Helena Bonham Carter Earth's most unqualified astronaut crash lands on a mysterious planet where things are about to get a little hairy! The makeup in this movie is amazing. This is the exact film Rick Baker was born to do. The variety of simian species presented and the near-flawless execution is truly remarkable. Monkeys have never looked better on film in practical makeup. »

Netflix has a job opening that most of us probably want to fill: the opportunity to be paid to watch Netflix. The website is looking for a Tagger in the UK and Ireland, someone who watches hours upon hours of TV (and even some Netflix originals in advance) and then assesses the genre, tone, and personality of each piece of content to help determine what users might want to watch next.
According to Netflix’s job posting, the Tagger’s job is to “deconstruct” the films and TV programs that will be on Netflix in the future, and then describe them using objective tags. »

• Tina Fey is in early development on a “supernatural-themed feature” with Disney known as the Untitled Witch Project, but it is decidedly not a Hocus Pocus sequel (as was the rumor early Wednesday). According to the report, the project will be in the vein of Ghostbusters, and Fey will star and produce. Next up for Fey is the Jonathan Tropper adaptation This is Where I Leave You, out Sept. 19. She’s currently filming the comedy The Nest, alongside Amy Poehler. [Deadline]

If we base ourselves on his first two ventures into feature filmmaking (Daniel and Ana and After Lucia) thesps Tim Roth, Bitsie Tulloch, Michael Cristofer and David Dastmalchian are in for a psychological beating. Deadline reports that the foursome of actors are set to join one of the Mexican talents we’ve blow-horned about in Michel Franco. The pic sees the helmer move into English language territory. No word on who is producing, what the plans are for a production start date on Chronic, but we’ll have our eyes peeled for the latest.

In terms of costuming I though Tim Burton's Planet of the Apes was excellent and I also thought Tim Roth was awesome as Thade, but this was a movie that was otherwise terrible and leave it to the Screen Junkies crew to give us the whys and hows in their latest honest trailer. I have to admit, I don't remember much about this movie and even after watching this video I still don't know much about it. It's rather astonishing really, but it does show just how much better Rise of the Planet of the Apes was and helps in the anticipation for Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, which is already receiving great reviews. yt id="4US0Fjr4Rb8" width="500" »

After a spectacular crash-landing on an uncharted planet, brash astronaut Leo Davidson (Mark Wahlberg) finds himself trapped in a savage world where talking apes dominate the human race. Desperate to find a way home, Leo must evade the invincible gorilla army led by ruthless General Thade (Tim Roth) and his most trusted warrior, Attar (Michael Clarke Duncan). Now the pulse-pounding race is on to reach a sacred temple that may hold the shocking secrets of mankind's past - and the last hope for it's salvation! Based on Pierre Boulle's classic novel "Planet of the Apes," the premise for this film has become one of the most recognized and provocative concepts in the canon of science fiction literature and cinema. Visionary filmmaker Tim Burton (Batman, Beetlejuice, Edward Scissorhands, Sleepy Hollow) has taken Boulle's basic idea and built upon it a uniquely envisioned journey to an incredible upside-down world. Actors: Mark Wahlberg »
A pop-culture touchstone, a nearly all-purpose metaphor and one of the most beloved sci-fi franchises of the Seventies and beyond, the Planet of the Apes films do what all good what-if fantasies should do: hold up a mirror to humanity and reflect our own conflicts, issues and failings back to us through a wildly outrageous premise. The original 1968 movie mixes satire, social commentary, action and suspense, capped by a first-rate twist at the end. ("Damn you, damn you all to hell!")
Danny Baker has criticised the amount of former footballers as pundits currently on TV.
The broadcaster described football punditry as a "bogus science", and said that the type of contributors on the BBC and ITV at this year's World Cup are not reflecting the interests of fans.
In Defence Of... ITV Sport's World Cup coverage
Baker - who presents a World Cup show on BT Sport - told Radio Times: "Anyone who takes football in any degree seriously and treats it like a science that we study - mainly the people who sit on sofas on mainstream television like [Us Presidential monument] Mount Rushmore and pore over this stuff like Nostradamus like you can predict it, are wrong.
"It's the same old thing. Football punditry is the most bogus science. You know, we [England] are not the best team in the world, but it is very hard to say consistently who is. Football's chaos. »
