Jennifer Lawrence rumoured to be in talks for Quentin Tarantino’s The Hateful Eight

22 August 2014 12:57 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Now that Quentin Tarantino has decided to move full steam ahead with The Hateful Eight – even going so far as to release a teaser trailer, which you can watch here – it’s being reported by Collider that the director is looking to add some Oscar-winning talent to the cast, with Jennifer Lawrence (Silver Linings Playbook, The Hunger Games) said to be in negotiations to join the Western.

Assuming Tarantino’s rewrites of the script haven’t added any major characters, then Lawrence will presumably be wanted for either Daisy Domergue or Six Horse Judy, who were portrayed by Amber Tamblyn and Zoe Bell during the live-script read of the screenplay a few months back.

As yet, we’ve heard nothing about the official cast for The Hateful Eight, although Samuel L. Jackson, Kurt Russell, Walton Goggins, Michael Madsen, Tim Roth, Bruce Dern, James Remar, James Parks and Denis Menochet were »

Catch a stolen glance at Quentin Tarantino's 'The Hateful Eight' teaser

22 August 2014 11:42 AM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

Quentin Tarantino’s new gunslinging saga just keeps getting mugged.

First, the script for The Hateful Eight leaked online, prompting the Pulp Fiction and Django Unchained Oscar-winner to file a copyright infringement lawsuit and threaten never to make the movie. He eventually changed his mind, and although not a frame of film has been shot, there’s now a teaser tagged to the front of Sin City: A Dame to Kill For.

Of course, that has also been bootlegged online …

Tarantino has already hosted a public reading of The Hateful Eight script, and the pages for Django Unchained were »

Following a description of the trailer earlier this week, the full video has leaked online, which you can take a look at below.

Last month, we reported that Quentin Tarantino plans on using his cast from the live reading of the script earlier this year, which includes Bruce Dern (The Confederate), Samuel L. Jackson (The Bounty Hunter), Kurt Russell (The Hangman), Amber Tamblyn (The Prisoner), Walton Goggins (The Sheriff), Michael Madsen (The Cow Puncher) and Tim Roth (The Little Man), James Remar and Zoe Bell (Six-Horse Judy).

We also reported yesterday that Jennifer Lawrence is in negotiations to join the cast, although it isn't clear what role she may be portraying.

Is Jennifer Lawrence Saddling Up For ‘The Hateful Eight’?

22 August 2014 8:31 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Jennifer Lawrence’s career does not show any sign of dwindling as The Hunger Games actress is currently being rumoured for a place in Quentin Tarantino’s The Hateful Eight.

Lawrence is at the very height of success, where she can pretty much turn any film to gold in Hollywood. Working with great directors such as David O Russell and X-men:first Class’s Matthew Vaughn, she’s shown wonderful diversity in her work. It might come as a surprise to some that she’s being linked with Quentin Tarantino, but it’s probably because the Django Unchained director has a completely different ball game to film-making, which is usually a good mix of fun and brutal. His casting choices are usually second to none, making the likes of Pitt and DiCaprio detestable or unrecognisable.

It’s not yet known what role she’s set to take on but it is »

Jennifer Lawrence could potentially join Quentin Tarantino’s next film

21 August 2014 7:13 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

While news of of a Quentin Tarantino film going into development is always met with a level of excitement, fans of the filmmaker have gone on a bit of a rollercoaster with his newest project.

This was followed by the announcement that Tarantino was back in production on the feature. Now a new piece of news has emerged, as Collider reports that Tarantino is in talks with actress Jennifer Lawrence to take on a role in the film.

Lawrence herself has seen her star rise in recent years, garnering acclaim for her role in 2010′s Oscar-nominated Winter’s Bone before going on to the role of Katniss Everdeen in the Hunger Games movie franchise and Mystique in the X-Men franchise, as well as »

Jennifer Lawrence May Join Tarantino's 'Hateful Eight'

21 August 2014 5:02 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Fans who plan on seeing Sin City: A Dame to Kill For this weekend will be the first to check out the teaser trailer for Quentin Tarantino's The Hateful Eight. Following the trailer description from yesterday, Collider is reporting that The Hunger Games star Jennifer Lawrence is in negotiations for a role in the Western.

Jackson (The Bounty Hunter), Kurt Russell (The Hangman), Amber Tamblyn (The Prisoner), Walton Goggins (The Sheriff), Michael Madsen (The Cow Puncher) and Tim Roth (The Little Man) and James Remar.

Jennifer Lawrence Wanted For Quentin Tarantino’s The Hateful Eight

21 August 2014 4:57 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Quentin Tarantino is moving full steam ahead with his upcoming Western, The Hateful Eight. While we’ve heard that the director will be using the same cast that he used for the live read (Bruce Dern, Kurt RussellMichael Madsen, Walton Goggin, Samuel L. Jackson, etc.), that is unconfirmed and for now, just a rumor. He very well could go with a whole new group of actors, or at least a few fresh faces, and if this latest report is to be believed, that might be exactly what he’s doing.

Collider is telling us that Jennifer Lawrence is wanted for a major female role in the film. Of course, this hasn’t been confirmed, and apparently the actress’ camp has shot it down already, but it’s still worth discussing. After all, just because a publicist denies a rumor doesn’t mean that it’s not true.

Jennifer Lawrence and Others Rumored for Tarantino's 'Hateful Eight'

21 August 2014 4:16 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

While a largely text-based trailer for Quentin Tarantino's The Hateful Eight will premiere in front of Sin City: A Dame to Kill For this weekend, the movie has not yet gone begun filming and the trailer doesn't even list any confirmed cast members. To this point it seems Kurt Russell is the only one that's said he's in the film, but even that has yet to be made official. Now, however, things are starting to heat up as new rumors suggest Jennifer Lawrence, Evan Rachel Wood, Geena Davis and Hilary Swank may all be under consideration for a role. Note, however, these are just rumors and could simply be wishlists and/or publicists trying to get their client's names in the mix. For example, Jeff Sneider from quoted Lawrence's reps in a The Wrap tweet saying, "Despite internet rumors, her reps have confirmed she's not doing this project. »

Jennifer Lawrence Maybe Taking a Role in Tarantino's 'Hateful Eight'

21 August 2014 3:26 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

While we've heard that the cast of Quentin Tarantino's new western The Hateful Eight would be utilizing the cast that came together for the live reading of the script earlier this year, it sounds like there might be an addition to the cast no one expected. As of now, the return of Bruce Dern, Samuel L. Jackson, Michael Madsen, James Remar, Amber Tamblyn, Walton Goggins and Zoe Bell have mostly been assumed with no official confirmation. Kurt Russell seems to be the only one definitely returning since he knew that production was going to begin soon. Now Collider is hearing that Jennifer Lawrence is in talks for a role. You might be wondering how this is possible so late in the game, especially with a teaser trailer for the film playing in theaters this weekend with Sin City: A Dame to Kill For.

Watch The Hateful Eight teaser trailer here

20 August 2014 11:35 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Quentin Tarantino’s next blood-soaked adventure, The Hateful Eight, has not begun filming yet but a teaser has already been produced. It will presumably be attached to Tarantino’s good buddy Robert Rodriguez’s long-awaited Sin City: A Dame To Kill For, which is due out in cinemas this weekend.

Earlier today the teaser leaked online in admittedly poor cam quality, but who cares? It’s a taste of a new Tarantino movie! Naturally, since filming is yet to start the teaser has no actual footage from the film, but it does do a great job at hyping up the titular hateful eight.

The Hateful Eight stars Samuel L. Jackson, Kurt Russell, Walton Goggins, Michael Madsen, Tim Roth, Amber Tamblyn, Bruce Dern, James Remar, Dana Hourrier, James Parks, Denis Menochet and Zoe Bell, and is slated for release in 2015. Watch the trailer here while you can!

Tarantino's 'Hateful Eight' Trailer Description

20 August 2014 10:51 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Last week, we reported that fans who buy a Sin City: A Dame to Kill For ticket will be the first to see a teaser trailer for Quentin Tarantino's upcoming Western The Hateful Eight. The catch is, it will not be debuting online. We know that this trailer won't contain any actual footage, since production hasn't even started yet, but Collider has a description of this teaser, which confirms the Western is being shot in 70Mm Super CinemaScope.

The story is set after the Civil War in Wyoming, and centers on a group of stagecoach passengers who get stranded together during a blizzard, with a majority of the story taking place in a dive bar. The trailer opens in typical Western fashion, with an unidentified ballad and title cards that set up these strangers being trapped together, followed by, "They soon discovered they shared a deadly connection."

A Theater-Exclusive ‘Hateful Eight’ Trailer is Cool, But a World Free of Trailer Leaks is Even Cooler

16 August 2014 9:51 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Quentin Tarantino‘s righteous fury at those who leaked The Hateful Eight‘s screenplay has abated. The film is no longer spite-cancelled, and it may start shooting as early as early next year (according to /Film, who heard the news on Fox 59, who in turn heard it from Kurt Russell). Tarantino’s heart has swelled so profusely that not only is he going to give us The Hateful Eight, he’s going to give us a trailer next week. /Film, once again, has the scoop, having found mention of a Hateful Eight trailer on the Alberta Film Ratings board, and then also hearing from people working in local multiplexes, who’ve been notified that a minute and 40 seconds of Hateful Eight will run before Sin City: A Dame to Kill For. Then, Deadline wrapped everything up with their own confirmation. However, there is a caveat- in order to see that fateful Hateful Eight tease, you »

'Hateful Eight' teaser to play in theaters before 'Sin City 2'

15 August 2014 11:25 AM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

If you’re making a movie about a rugged 19th-century stagecoach adventure, you’re presumably familiar with the idiom “putting the cart before the horse.” But Quentin Tarantino has always operated outside convention. So it’s oddly appropriate that a teaser trailer for his next movie, The Hateful Eight—a film that doesn’t even go into production until early 2015—will debut in theaters next weekend before screenings of Sin City: A Dame to Kill For.

Though The Weinstein Company—which is distributing both films—declined to comment, sources close to the production tell EW that reports of a theater-only teaser are correct. »

15 August 2014 1:37 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Quentin Tarantino's The Hateful Eight will release its first trailer ahead of Sin City: A Dame to Kill For screenings.

The trailer will not be receiving an official online release alongside the debut, reports Slash Film.

It is unknown what the trailer will show, as the film is yet to begin shooting.

Tarantino cancelled his plans for The Hateful Eight after the script was leaked online.

He later revived the western project following a live script reading at San Diego Comic-Con.

The Hateful Eight concerns an ill-matched group of people trapped in a remote saloon by a blizzard.

Bruce Dern, Walton Goggins, Samuel L Jackson, Michael Madsen and Kurt Russell are believed to be attached to the film.

Sin City: A Dame to Kill For will be released on August 22. »

The Hateful Eight trailer to premiere in front of Sin City: A Dame to Kill For

14 August 2014 11:09 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

When the script leaked for Quentin Tarantino’s The Hateful Eight earlier this year, the director halted production on the Western and threatened to not make the film at all. Slowly, after a successful live reading in Los Angeles, he revived the project and recently announced that it will begin filming later this year for release in 2015. There’s already a poster for the film, and now we’re hearing that there will soon be a teaser trailer for it as well.

According to /Film, the trailer will consist mostly of title cards, and debut in front of Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller’s upcoming film Sin City: A Dame to Kill For. Furthermore, the trailer will only appear in front of the Sin City sequel and won’t be available online any time soon.

So the question now is, are you excited enough to see the trailer for The Hateful Eight »
