Quentin Tarantino is moving forward on The Hateful Eight. The director, who halted work on the film after the script was leaked online and he was enmeshed in a legal fight with Gawker over the leak, confirmed at Comic-Con that the Western would be his next project. During a panel to discuss his upcoming Django Unchained/Zorro comic, Tarantino was asked about the movie by a fan. "Yes, we are going to be doing The Hateful Eight," Tarantino said, according to IGN and Collider. "All for you. We weren't sure about it but I just decided just now."

Filmmaker Quentin Tarantino was at Comic-Con over the weekend to promote a crossover comic book between his titular character form Django Unchained teaming up with the swift swordsman Zorro. But of course, the discussion eventually turned to his film projects, which is where production of his western The Hateful Eight was brought up. Following word from Kurt Russell that director Quentin Tarantino was trying to line up an early 2015 production start for the once postponed film, Tarantino himself has confirmed that the film will indeed go before cameras, though didn't solidify exactly when. But that's not all. Tarantino was also asked whether or not he would like to jump into the realm of fantasy or sci-fi, both genres that he has yet to touch as a writer and director. Funnily enough, The Guardian quotes Tarantino as saying, "If you had asked me a few years ago I would have said, »

Tarantino and Western film fans are in for a real treat, as Django Unchained will be getting a sequel in the form of a comic book series. To top it off, it will be a crossover with the masked outlaw, Zorro!
Dynamite Entertainment, who publish comics such as The Bionic Woman and Buck Rogers, will be celebrating its 10th anniversary this year by releasing the first non-film sequel to Django Unchained. Django will be teamed up with Dynamite’s long running character Zorro who is the secret identity of Don Diego de la Vega. Tarantino fans will notice that Zorro’s last name is shared with the Vega brothers, Vincent (Pulp Fiction) and Mr. Blonde (Reservoir Dogs), which could mean in the director’s ‘Realer Than Real World’ universe, Zorro is a distant relative of the brothers!

Even before a frame has been shot, Quentin Tarantino's "The Hateful Eight" has had quite the life. Announced last year as his next project, it wasn't long after when an early draft of the script leaked, and he furiously decided to can the movie. But almost just as swiftly, he changed his mind and continued to develop the script, and then earlier this spring, he staged a starry live reading of what he had on the page so far (read our review of the event). And basically, the chatter was that Tarantino was going to ultimately direct "The Hateful Eight," and soon, with Kurt Russell (who participated in the live read) recently suggesting that cameras would roll in early 2015. And while Tarantino didn't give an exact date, he's now confirmed this film is next on his slate. The director was at Comic-Con yesterday at the Dynamite Comic’s panel »

He’s taken us deep into criminal underworlds, went back to World War II and, most recently, to the plantations of the deep South.

It’s not just Hall H that erupts during Comic-Con. Room 6Bcf also went crazy during Dynamite Comic’s panel for the Django Unchained-Zorro crossover comic book, where Quentin Tarantino was a guest. After a fan asked about the Hateful Eight movie, Tarantino confirmed that he is indeed moving forward with the movie. The fan asked “I was at the reading for The Hateful Eight. It would make me so happy if can you confirm if you are going to be doing it?” to which the director responded “Yes, we are going to be doing The Hateful Eight. All for you. We weren't sure about it but I just decided just now.” Not so long ago, the script for The Hateful Eight leaked online causing the Reservoir Dogs director to stop the movie in it’s tracks. He discovered the leak after his agent Mike Simpson began getting calls »

Looks like this movie is happening after all!
At Comic-Con, Django Unchained director Quentin Tarantino officially confirmed that he was in fact going to make his planned western The Hateful Eight, despite previously announcing that he wouldn't proceed with the film due to the script getting leaked.
According to Deadline, the announcement was made as Tarantino was speaking at the Dynamite Comic's panel discussion of the upcoming Django Unchained/Zorro crossover comic book. The reveal reportedly elicited massive cheering from the audience.
The film, which Tarantino wrote to be a spiritual sequel to the classic western The Magnificent Seven, was at the center of a storm of controversy in January when the 51-year-old director announced that he was shelving the project because he was angry that one of the few friends he showed the script to had allegedly leaked it to the press.
"I'm very, very depressed," Tarantino told Deadline at the time. "I finished »
When an early draft of the script for Quentin Tarantino's ensemble Western The Hateful Eight leaked earlier this year, a "very, very depressed" Tarantino declared that he was not planning to continue with the project. But at a live script reading in April, the director announced that he was working on a second draft of the screenplay, stirring hopes that the post–Civil War stagecoach drama might not be doomed after all. Now those suspicions have been confirmed: At a Comic-Con panel promoting his Django Unchained–Zorro crossover comic book on Sunday night, Tarantino was asked by an audience member whether The Hateful Eight would be his next feature, to which he responded, after a pause: “Yeah. We’re going to be doing The Hateful Eight at the beginning of the year." It's not clear exactly which actors will make up the cast — most of the participants from the »

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 »

Tarantino had begun work on the Western film last year, but shelved the project when portions of the screenplay were published online by Gawker.
Tarantino later held a live reading of The Hateful Eight in Los Angeles, with rumours soon emerging that he was working on an altered version of the project.
The filmmaker revealed this weekend at Comic-Con International that he will in fact bring The Hateful Eight to the big screen, according to Deadline.
No other Hateful Eight details were announced during Tarantino's panel for his Django Unchained-Zorro crossover graphic novel.
Previous reports have suggested that The Hateful Eight could go into production as soon as November.
Tarantino won a Best Original Screenplay Oscar for his most recent Western film Django Unchained. »
“The Hateful Eight” has had a colorful life so far. Back in January, pages from the screenplay had leaked, and Gawker posted a story pointing to them. Tarantino filed a lawsuit against the media outlet (which was later dismissed, then refiled, then withdrawn) and declared that the western would not be his next film.
In April, however, he announced to a crowd at a reading of the “Hateful Eight” script that he was working on a second draft, with a third to come.
On Sunday at Comic-Con, a fan directly asked him at a panel if he was actually continuing with the once-scrapped project. According to Collider, after a pause, he answered, “Yeah — We’re going to be doing ‘The Hateful Eight.’”

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, »
After Gawker leaked pages from The Hateful Eight screenplay back in January, Tarantino filed a lawsuit against the media company and said he wouldn’t be turning the script into a movie because of the leak. He later amended that statement though, telling a crowd at a The Hateful Eight reading in April that he was actually working on new draft of the script. And Sunday, he announced at a Comic-Con panel that the movie is a go, Deadline reports.

After being prodded by a fan’s question, Quentin Tarantino confirmed that he is moving forward with his feature western The Hateful Eight. The announcement was made at Dynamite Comic’s panel for the Django Unchained-Zorro crossover comic-book. Everyone in Room 6Bcf erupted with cheers. In fielding fan questions, Tarantino also teased that he’s working on an extended cut of Kill Bill that would include animated footage that was cut out of the original 2003 film. Taking the stage this afternoon, Tarantino also earned the second biggest standing ovation at Comic-Con this weekend after Marvel’s Avengers: Age of Ultron clip in Hall H. The whole idea for a Django Unchained-Zorro crossover […] »
Is there a better Comic-Con closing act than Quentin Tarantino? He’s here today to launch a Django Unchained comic book sequel, but I’m sure the crowd will prod him for details on his next movie, and you never know what you’ll hear when you put a microphone in front of Tarantino and ask the right question, or any question, really. Here’s what I’m hearing, that he’s locking in everyone from cast to producers for an early 2015 shoot on The Hateful Eight, the Western which has had perhaps the most unusual journey to the start gate for a Tarantino film.

Fans have been wanting to see Luke Cage a.k.a. Power Man make his way to the Marvel cinematic universe for quite some time now, and will finally get their wish when the Marvel Netflix shows start arriving in 2015. Daredevil is first, followed by Jessica Jones and Iron Fist, but Luke Cage is getting his own series as well, and will be part of the TV team-up event The Defenders.
We’ve heard several actors express their interest in playing Cage, from Idris Elba, Isaiah Mustafa, Dwayne Johnson, Terry Crews, and Mars Crain. Now, another has tossed his hat into the ring: The Best Man and Chicago alum Taye Diggs.
Diggs recently appeared on the Conan O’Brien Show, and said that he would like to play Cage if given the opportunity:
“Luke Cage. You ever heard of that? I’ve always liked that. Just you know, growing up a poor black boy, »

During last night’s Conan O'Brien Show, O' Brien brought on Taye Diggs (The Best Man and spouse of Idina Menzel), and the actor revealed which role he hopes to play in the future. To start off, Conan asked Diggs if he would like to play a superhero. To no surprise, Diggs replied, "I would love to. That’s one of the things that I haven't gotten to do yet. Just to be able to do that, you know, when they're flying, and then they land, you know what I'm saying." O' Brien then asked if there was any particular superhero he wanted to play. Taye answered "Luke Cage. You ever heard of that? I've always liked that. Just you know, growing up a poor black boy, you gravitate to the black superheroes. And that's why I really loved Django Unchained. Growing up, you never got to see the black »
