Jackson, Walton Goggins, Michael Madsen, Tim Roth, Amber Tamblyn, Kurt Russell, Bruce Dern, James Remar, Dana Hourrier, James Parks, Denis Menochet and Zoe Bell. Take a look in the gallery below…

No matter the medium, Quentin Tarantino knows how to pack a house.
Last weekend in Los Angeles, a whole cadre of the director's cohorts gathered for a three and a half-hour live reading of "The Hateful Eight," which you might remember hearing about after the first draft of the script was leaked in January. Although the future of the project is still in limbo, it's clear that Tarantino fans are eager to see it however they can -- even if it means shelling out up to $200 bucks for a bare bones stage reading.
In fact, this reading was of that infamously leaked first draft, making the event a one time only deal. "I'm working on a second draft and I will do a third draft, but we're reading from the first draft... The Chapter 5 here will not be the Chapter 5 later, so this will be the only time it is seen ever, »

As it has been widely reported, Quentin Tarantino ditched his plans to make the Western his next movie after the first draft of the screenplay leaked online earlier this year. This past weekend, he held a one time only live reading of the screenplay, with Samuel L. Jackson, Kurt Russell, Amber Tamblyn, Walton Goggins, Tim Roth, Michael Madsen and Bruce Dern in the leads, which seems to have reinvigorated his passion for the project. At the staged reading, which he directed himself, Quentin told the audience that they were going to see a 'work in progress of the second draft', and that he is currently planning to write a new third draft. This will include an all-new take »
Here’s a new hope for fans of Quentin Tarantino who want to see his script for The Hateful Eight turned into a real live movie: he is working on the script again. Tarantino is just coming off the staged reading of the film at the Ace Hotel in Los Angeles, and he seems to have enjoyed the process. The project was originally slated to film this year, but Tarantino decided not to move forward after the first draft of the script was leaked in January.
But on Saturday, Tarantino told the audience that he is working on a second draft and is planning to write a third draft. That seems like a lot of effort for a script you never want to shoot. The Film Stage is reporting that the film will go into production next winter, but no one else has picked that up, so let’s call it a wishful rumor. »

Back in 2002, Eli Roth was just still just getting asked if he was related to Tim Roth, mixing up buckets of fake blood and didn’t have a whole slew of vomitous horror credits and one truly satisfying assassination of Adolf Hitler on his resume. But all that changed with the release of Cabin Fever, the sometimes funny, always disgusting gorefest that took Shawn from Boy Meets World (real name Rider Strong) and made him meet a whole lot of other things. Like eye puss. The horror film was atypical in its typicality. It followed a group of recent college grads who head to the woods for a stay at a remote cabin for some summer fun (of course they do), where they resolved to party and screw their woes away. Naturally, they meet and ignore the bevy of creeps, drifters and blaring red flags they see on their way, and »

Remember that screenplay of Quentin Tarantino’s that leaked online, sending the writer/director into a tizzy that ended up with him deciding not to make the film? Well, that script, The Hateful Eight, may actually be getting that big-screen treatment in the near future.
The Pulp Fiction director hosted a live read of that first draft this weekend at the Ace Hotel in Los Angeles and revealed that he was working on a second draft of the story. Furthermore, the readers assembled to go through The Hateful Eight include many of the director’s friends and collaborators – meaning the cast here could reflect Tarantino’s final casting choices.
Among those included in the live read were Samuel L. Jackson as Major Marquis Warren and Kurt Russell as bounty hunter John Ruth. Rounding out the ensemble was Walton Goggins, Bruce Dern, Zoe Bell, Tim Roth, Michael Madsen, Amber Tamblyn, Denis Menochet, »

Now he has decided to resume work on the script, though its fate still remains undetermined. On Saturday, he hosted a stage reading of the first draft of the script in Los Angeles at a Film Independent–sponsored event.

Quentin Tarantino was in the middle of working on The Hateful Eight script when it leaked, and decided to scrap the project even though he wanted it to be his next film. Tarantino explained that he was frustrated with the leak to the point where he decided to put The Hateful Eight aside and work on something else.

Jackson, Kurt Russell, Tim Roth, Bruce Dern, and more reading the various parts. At the live-reading, Tarantino told the audience that they would be hearing an in-progress second draft of the script, and he planned to write a third draft. He also noted that the final chapter—"Black Night, White Hell" would be changed, "So the only time it will be seen is here, tonight," he told the audience according The Playlist. »

Three months ago filmmaker Quentin Tarantino said he was cancelling his plans to make his leaked western movie script "Hateful Eight" into a movie, opting instead to publish the screenplay as a book.
At the time though he also gave the caveat that he may return to the project some time in the future. That time may be sooner than expected judging by the one-night-only stage reading of the screenplay which took place this weekend.
Tarantino told the audience that the script is still very much a work in progress and he is "working right now on a second draft" whilst the reading was from the first draft. Split into five chapters, Tarantino says the final chapter would either be removed or completely rewritten.

The 51-year-old American film director, who hosted a star-studded reading of the leaked script in Los Angeles, said that he is working on a second draft and will do a third draft as well, the New York Post reported.

"Okay, we're drifting away from the dialogue a bit. Let's bring it back. No more co-writing." By far, the most exciting element of Saturday night's live read was actually seeing Quentin Tarantino work with his cast as they performed his latest screenplay, "The Hateful Eight," for a sold-out capacity audience at The Theater at the Ace Hotel. Depending on where you were seated in the theater, the physical experience ranged from the tolerable to the punishing, with the audience in the upper balcony essentially getting a free sauna as the total lack of air conditioning and the preposterously close rows combined to make the running time of over three-and-a-half hours almost impossible to bear. It is a testament, then, to the compelling nature of Tarantino's script and to the great cast he put together that no one seemed willing to leave before the end, no matter how hard it was to stay seated. »

After the script for his The Hateful Eight leaked earlier this year, a "very, very depressed" Quentin Tarantino said he would not be moving forward with the project. He may have changed his mind: On Saturday night, Tarantino presented a three and a half–hour staged reading of the film at L.A.'s Ace Hotel. "We’ve been rehearsing this for the last three days and we’re not bad," he told the crowd, which included Harvey and Bob Weinstein. Tarantino project alums Samuel L Jackson, Tim Roth, Kurt Russell, James Parks, Amber Tamblyn, Michael Madsen, Denis Ménochet, James Remar, Walton Goggins, and Bruce Dern were on hand to read the roles of the post–Civil War western, which is broken up into five chapters.Variety reports that the standing-room–only audience enjoyed a "violent, bloody tale, laced with profanity and even vomit." Though chapter five (titled "Black Night, »

The Hateful Eight isn’t dead after all.
Quentin Tarantino vowed to kill the project – a Wyoming-set, post-Civil War western — when the script was leaked in January.
“I’m going to publish it , and that’s it for now,” the director said at the time. “I give 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 10 more where that came from.”

While Quentin Tarantino is suing Gawker Media over their decision to link to the leaked script for what would have been his new movie, The Hateful Eight, the writer/director held a live-reading of the first draft last night at the Ace Hotel in Downtown Los Angeles with a star-studded cast. If you've managed to get your hands on the script, perhaps some of these character names will be familiar to you, but the actors most certainly will be as Samuel L. Jackson read the part of Major Marquis Warren, James Parks as the driver O.B., Kurt Russell as bounty hunter John Ruth, aka 'The Hangman', Amber Tamblyn as his prisoner Daisy Domergue, Walton Goggins as Chris Mannix, Denis Menochet as the Frenchman Bob, Tim Roth as the Englishman Oswaldo Mobray, Michael Madsen as John Gage, Bruce Dern as Confederate General Smithers, Dana Gourrier as Minnie, Zoe Bell as »

Back in January, a depressed Quentin Tarantino announced that he’d decided to shelve his next project The Hateful Eight after the script for the Western leaked online. Well, it seems he may not have given up on the project after all, with the director revealing last night at a live script read in Los Angeles that he’s currently rewriting the screenplay.
“I’m working on a second draft and I will do a third draft but we’re reading from the first draft,” said Tarantino as he introduced the formally titled Film Independent Presents the World Premiere of a Staged Reading by Quentin Tarantino: The Hateful Eight. “The Chapter 5 here will not be the Chapter 5 later, so this will be the only time it is seen ever.”

After the script of Quentin Tarantino’ s “The Hateful Eight” was leaked in January, the director said he had “no desire to make it.” Well, it’s safe to say he’s reconsidered. At Film Independent’s staged reading of “The Hateful Eight” on Saturday at Downtown L.A.’s Ace Hotel, Tarantino said he was working on a second draft and a third would also come.
“This is the first draft,” he clarified. Tarantino noted that the final chapter, chapter five titled “Black Night, White Hell,” has been rewritten and “this is the only time you’ll see” this version.
In a black cowboy hat and western shirt, the director introduced in order of appearance “the Tarantino Superstars,” all alums of his previous films: Samuel L. Jackson as Major Marquis Warren, James Parks as the driver O.B., Kurt Russell as bounty hunter John Ruth also known as “The Hangman, »
