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, »
