Tarantino Still Working On "Hateful Eight"

7 hours ago

Three months ago filmmaker Quentin Tarantino said he was cancelling his plans to make his leaked western movie script "Hateful Eight" into a movie, opting instead to publish the screenplay as a book.

At the time though he also gave the caveat that he may return to the project some time in the future. That time may be sooner than expected judging by the one-night-only stage reading of the screenplay which took place this weekend.

Tarantino told the audience that the script is still very much a work in progress and he is "working right now on a second draft" whilst the reading was from the first draft. Split into five chapters, Tarantino says the final chapter would either be removed or completely rewritten.

Appearing at WonderCon to promote "X-Men: Days of Future Past," writer/producer Simon Kinberg spoke with Crave about the upcoming "Fantastic Four" reboot which he's also involved in.

Kinberg says the tone of the new movies is "much more grounded, gritty, realistic movie than the last couple movies," however it won't be Chris Nolan-style deathly serious:

"If I had to say, the tone of it would be somewhere on the spectrum between [Sam Raimi's] 'Spider-Man' and 'Chronicle'. The other movies were even further on the spectrum of being goofy and fun than Spider-Man. It's still in the direction of Spider-Man. It's not like Dark Knight. And even Chronicle has a lot of fun in it.
