Appearing at the San Diego Comic-Con to discuss the upcoming comic book crossover Django/Zorro from Dynamite Entertainment, filmmaker Quentin Tarantino confirmed that The Hateful Eight is going to move ahead, stating during the Q&A that: “Yes, we are going to be doing The Hateful Eight. All for you. We weren’t sure about it but I just decided now.”
Tarantino offered no further details on the status of the Western, which he put the breaks on earlier in the year following an online leak of the screenplay. Earlier this month, Kurt Russell claimed that The Hateful Eight would go into production early next year, and it is assumed that Tarantino will stick with the same cast as the live script reading he held back in April, which also featured Samuel L. Jackson, Walton Goggins, Michael Madsen, Tim Roth, Amber Tamblyn, Bruce Dern, James Remar, Dana Hourrier, James Parks, »

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

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 »

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
Join Dynamite publisher Nick Barrucci, Dynamite senior editor Joseph Rybandt and moderator Alan Kistler as they present a special 10th Anniversary Celebration featuring the upcoming Django/Zorro crossover creative team of Reginald Hudlin (editor, Django/Zorro), Matt Wagner (writer, Django/Zorro) and of course the very special guest Quentin Tarantino as they help to celebrate the 10th anniversary of Dynamite Comics! »
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, »

Director: Josh C. Waller. Writers: Robert Beaucage, Kenny Gage and Josh C. Waller. Cast: Zoë Bell, Rachel Nichols, Tracie Thoms and Bruce Thomas. The female prison movies of the '60s and '70s focused on sexploitation. In these films, semi-naked shower scenes and brawls were plentiful. But, the filmmakers of Raze have chosen to alter this genre from the sexy to the blood-filled. In Raze, several characters partake in an all women fighting tournament, which lasts until there is only one survivor. Director Josh C. Waller and the writing team of Robert Beaucage and Kenny Gage have created a thrilling action focused tale, here. Dramatic elements and characterizations are relegated to a few scenes of dialogue and flashbacks. Instead of focusing exclusively on the characters and story, Raze deals with one woman's struggle out of bloodsport and her battle with psychopathic tournament directors. Raze's violent visual spectacle is »

Starring Zoe Bell (Raze), Vivica A. Fox (Kill Bill), Kristanna Loken (Terminator 3), Brigitte Nielsen (Rocky IV) and Cynthia Rothrock (China O’Brien), Mercenaries is the latest movie from purveyors of all things exploitation The Asylum, who it seems are getting the jump on their Hollywood counterparts by releasing what is essentially an all-female take on The Expendables.
The official synopsis reads thus:
A diplomatic official is captured and imprisoned while touring a war zone, so a team of elite female commandoes is assembled to infiltrate a women’s prison for a daring rescue.
Which is less of a synopsis and more of an excuse to see some fantastic butt-kicking action from the cast which includes two of the best female action stars ever – Zoe Bell (who kicks mucho arse in the recently released Raze) and the legend that is Cynthia Rothrock.
I just hope that director Christopher Olen Ray lets »

Stars: Zoe Bell, Rachel Nichols, Doug Jones, Sherilyn Fenn, Adrienne Wilkinson, Tracie Thoms, Rebecca Marshall, Bailey Anne Borders, Rosario Dawson | Written by Robert Beaucage | Directed by Josh C. Waller
Produced by its star, stuntwoman turned actress Zoe Bell, Raze has seemingly been “coming soon” for an eternity. I distinctly remember first reading about it way back in 2011 and it’s only now, some three years later, that the film is finally seeing the light of day here in the UK. It’s been a long wait but it has Definitely been worth it!
Raze follows kickboxer Sabrina (Bell), who wakes up to find herself in an underground bunker. Soon she realizes that this bunker is actually a modern day coliseum of sorts, where, along with 48 other women, they are condemned to fight each other to the death. The game organizers, turn their kidnapping victims into violent femmes by threatening to »

Check out all of the many project details coming soon from Ryan in the official release below, which include trailer links and project artwork.
From The Press Release
Wild Eye Releasing will be unleashing Shane Ryan's latest film, My Name is A by anonymous, on September 23, 2014. A tells the inspired-by-true-story of Alyssa Bustamante, who was accused of stabbing, strangling, and slicing the throat of her 9 year old neighbor. Alyssa was just 15 at the time of the murder. Watch Trailer.
Coincidentally Ryan's Amateur Porn Star Killer Trilogy is being re-released for a 3rd time in a limited box set by Cinema Epoch on the same day, with an early release on Amazon in July. Ryan recently »
Director: Josh C. Waller
Running time: 99 minutes
Advertised as having a large female cast, Raze was definitely a title to watch under the judgement of any feminist viewers. However, labelled under the ‘exploitation’ genre, with a narrative containing an extreme amount of violence, the film takes a turn into crazy, nearly-unbelievable town.
Beginning with a blacked-out screen, a message appears detailing how 350,000 American women go missing every year, and that a lot of them are never to be seen again. This then cuts away to a noisy bar scene, with a young couple (and our first female victim) flirting to their hearts’ content. However, when Jamie (Nichols) awakens in a darkened tunnel, and comes face-to-face with the solemn Sabrina, she soon realizes that her evening hadn’t gone completely to plan. Welcome to the coliseum, run »

We were almost sure that Quentin Tarantino’s newest project The Hateful Eight was going to be lost to the annals of films that might have been. After he seemingly shelved the project after a script leak, lawsuits followed and there was a live read of the film with an incredible cast, but a feature still seemed uncertain. Apparently the director has had a change of heart, as Showbiz411 reports that Tarantino’s Hateful Eight will film this November with many of the same actors who performed the Los Angeles live read. Those big names include Samuel L. Jackson, Bruce Dern, Michael Madsen, Kurt Russell, James Remar, Amber Tamblyn, Walt Goggins and Zoe Bell. Sadly, this will be the first Tarantino film without Christoph Waltz since he first...
