It’s Sunday and the final day of 2014 San Diego Comic-Con, typically the quietest day of the con. After a crazy weekend of The 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. 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 soon after. The director threw a very public hissy fit and threatened to never make the film. He had the cast »

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 »

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, »
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 »

Earlier this month, Kurt Russell said that he may start shooting The Hateful Eight with Tarantino around the beginning of next year. Despite Tarantino seeming like he had warmed up to the idea of shooting a version of The Hateful Eight, there had been no confirmation from the studio or Qt himself. It's possible Qt was just waiting for the right venue to convey the news, as he's confirmed during his panel at Sdcc that shooting on The Hateful Eight will start in early 2015. A reading of the »

Goldie Hawn hasn't acted since 2002, but she'll be forever beloved in Hollywood thanks to her starring roles in hit films like The Sugarland Express, Private Benjamin, Overboard and The First Wives Club. Kate Hudson is a successful actress in her own right—but would she ever remake one of her mom's movies? "I come from a family of storytellers. It takes a lot—three months, four months—out of their life," Hudson said on NBC's Late Night Tuesday after she was asked about growing up with Hawn and dad Kurt Russell. "It's kind of a fun thing to see the outcome of what your parents have been working on so hard and what you would hear them talking about. And now I can see that in my »
Any fan of Quentin Tarantino knows that he hasn't made a sequel to any of his movies yet, and that doesn't appear to change in the near future. However, he is continuing the story from 2012's Django Unchained in comic book form, with a sequel/mashup from Dynamite Entertainment that will be presented at Comic-Con 2014. Take a look at the panel details below, which will take place on Sunday, July 27

Doberman is a pretty funny book to read if you remember that it’s a spoof/homage of all of those cop action films from the ‘80s, especially Lethal Weapon. Written by several of the writers for It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, the book will feel strange if you don’t remember that it’s intended to be a loving parody. Once you remember that, it feels amusing to read.
Doberman is the epic tale of Frank Doberano, an Lapd officer. He’s the picture of every stereotyped office that doesn’t play by the rules and has panache, right down to his grizzled Kurt Russell looks. His nickname is the Doberman, and we can see his style on display when he foils a convenience store robbery by spitting beer in the faces of the robbers. »

Last summer "The Purge" unassumingly broke and entered into theaters nationwide. A proudly B-movie affair, produced lovingly by "Paranormal Activity" kingpin Jason Blum, it starred Ethan Hawke and "Game of Thrones" star Lena Headley as a pair of well-off homeowners whose lives descend into chaos during the annual Purge -- a nationwide event where, for 12 hours, any form of crime is legal (and emergency medical services and police are suspended). Things, typically, go awry.
But while "The Purge" entered theaters with a whimper, it certainly left with a bang, making an unexpectedly healthy return on its modest budget and serving as the foundation of a probably franchise that, with any luck, will rival "Paranormal Activity" in terms of the numbers of installments and complexity of its respective mythology. The first follow-up film, "The Purge: Anarchy," arrives this week and takes an entirely different approach to the annual day of super violent cleansing. »

(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) »

Russell had a day left of shooting when Walker died in a car crash in November outside of Los Angeles.
In an interview this week, the 63-year-old actor said he returned to work on the two scenes left to do with Walker about two months ago. He said he filmed the scenes with Walker's two brothers Caleb and Cody.
The Fast team was "trying to work the best magic they can to make Fast & Furious 7 complete," Russell said, but did not say whether his scenes had been rewritten.
Russell signed on to the seventh film in the franchise to play the father of Vin Diesel's character Dominic Toretto. Acknowledging that Walker's death left the filmmakers in a "tough spot," Russell said the brothers had a great relationship with »

John Carpenter was once among Hollywood’s most prolific filmmakers. But the man who brought us such genre classics as Halloween, The Thing, Escape From New York, and Assault on Precinct 13 has only made one movie in the past 13 years—2010’s psychological thriller The Ward—and hasn’t troubled the box office in a big way since 1998’s James Woods-starring Vampires. (And Carpenter, 66, doesn’t sound like he’s in any rush to get back behind the camera: “I worked really hard for more years than I’d like to count, but now I can pick and choose things, »

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 »

The filmmaker was bullish about filming another western after his Oscar winning hit Django Unchained—but after a script leak and an ensuing lawsuit against Gawker, Tarantino seemed to cool on the idea. But at a live read of the Hateful Eight script, he announced that he was in the process of redrafting the screenplay–presumably adding in a character named Dick “The Gawker” Nenton, who suffers various horrific-but-hilarious limb-removal procedures.

What’s next for filmmaker Quentin Tarantino? Well, at first the Oscar-winner seemed as though he was perhaps most interested in making a third ‘historical revenge-fantasy’ movie in the vein of Inglourious Basterds and Django Unchained – one titled Killer Crow and set during WWII; several months later, however, Tarantino revealed that he’d begun developing a script for a different sort of western throwback than Django. The screenplay in question is now known to be titled Hateful Eight, and it looks as though Tarantino will begin production on the project in time to make a 2015 release date.
Those who’ve been following Hateful Eight‘s progress thus far have endured something of a roller coaster ride – one that started when Tarantino abandoned his ...

Quentin Tarantino (Django Unchained) was planning to make "The Hateful Eight" western film be his next project, but when he started pitching it to actors, one of those actors ended up leaking the script online. The helmer responded by immediately dropping the movie and go on a mission to not only find out who leaked the script, but also sue anyone involved with spreading it online. Then came news that Tarantino was planning to rewrite the script and once again attempt to make the movie. He even had a live read of the script's first draft earlier this year. One of the actor who took part in that live read was Kurt Russell, who just confirmed that Tarantino is definitely turning "The Hateful Eight" into a film and that he'll have a starring role in it. "I've got a Tarantino project called 'The Hateful Eight' that looks like »
Didn't stay up for Monday night's late night talk shows? Moviefone's got you covered. Here's some of what you might have missed:
Jimmy Fallon and announcer Steve Higgins played Catchphrase with "Tonight Show" guests Michael Strahan and Diane Kruger, and the latter star admitted up front that she might not be good at the game because she's not American. But the German-born actress was determined to keep her country's winning streak alive following Germany's triumph at the World Cup, and brought a steely reserve to the match. Unfortunately, the combo of teammates Fallon and Strahan could not be stopped, and the duo came out on top thanks to a last-minute solve by Strahan for the clue "Silent but deadly." "I don't fart, man!" Strahan protested, before coming up with the correct phrase.
Strahan also sat down with Fallon to chat about his co-hosting gig with Kelly Ripa on "Live! with Kelly and Michael, »

Kurt Russell seems to confirm. Quentin Tarantino looks like he will be making his Western movie, The Hateful Eight, after all, backtracking on previous threats to abandon his script. Kurt Russell, who previously starred in the filmmaker’s grindhouse movie Death Proof, seemed to have confirmed as much, telling CinemaBlend: "There's a Tarantino project called The Hateful Eight that looks like it may go somewhere around the beginning of the year." »
