Legendary Producer Jerry Weintraub Dies at 77

6 July 2015 2:22 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Jerry Weintraub, the colorful and controversial producer whose films included “Nashville,” “Diner,” “The Karate Kid” and the trio of “Ocean’s Eleven” films, died Monday of cardiac arrest in Santa Barbara, Calif. He was 77. He had been in poor health recently.

When he received Variety‘s Creative Leadership Award in 2013, Weintraub told Variety that he had a yacht and a Rolls-Royce, but was “not a big Hollywood guy.” Some would disagree. He was actually an old-school Hollywood showman, who understood the relationship between production and marketing. He was also a snappy dresser — his shoes were colorful and fun — who knew how to work the room and how to work the press: He was always available to the media and when he had a film in release, he knew how to maximize public awareness.

But the showiness was backed by hard work. His savvy came after decades of performing in many different jobs in the industry. »

Following the first Hateful Eight photos that debuted back in May, Entertainment Weekly has released a new photo from director Quentin Tarantino's Western, which is set for release on Christmas Day.

The Hateful Eight Image Finds Kurt Russell Taking Aim

2 July 2015 12:05 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Quentin Tarantino is bringing The Hateful Eight to Comic-Con next week, but until the Western’s anticipated panel takes place, here’s another image from the star-studded pic, courtesy of EW.

Kurt Russell plays bounty hunter John Ruth, while Samuel L. Jackson is playing Major Marquis Warren. Both are definitely the kinds of guys you don’t want to end up stranded with – but that’s exactly what happens in the film, when a blizzard traps Ruth and Warren in a stagecoach stopover with an assortment of other rogues. Bloodshed ensues, but Tarantino assures the mag that there’s some humor on screen, too:

“I can definitely say that as bleak as our movie is, we are definitely the funniest snow Western ever made. This is funnier than The Great Silence, it’s funnier than Day of the Outlaw.”

The director also cites Bonanza and The Virginian as two influences on his latest movie, »
