Quentin Tarantino axes 'Hateful Eight' after leak

Jan 22 2014, 6:24am CST | by

Quentin Tarantino has put 'Hateful Eight' on hold after the script leaked.

The Academy-Award winning director has expressed his fury in a foul mouthed rant after learning an unauthorised copy of the script was made public and insists he only lent it to a small group of actors.

Tarantino fumed to Deadline.com: ''I'm very, very depressed, I finished a script, a first draft, and I didn't mean to shoot it until next winter, a year from now. I gave it to six people, and apparently it's gotten out today.''

Fans who were hoping to see another Western from the 50-year-old filmmaker following the success of 'Django Unchained' last year, will also be left disappointed as the director will now publish the story as a book and move onto other projects.

Tarantino added: ''I don't know how these f***ing agents work, but I'm not making this next. I'm going to publish it, and that's it for now. I give it out to six people, and if I can't trust them to that degree, then I have no desire to make it. I'll publish it. I'm done. I'll move on to the next thing. I've got 10 more where that came from.''

He is keen to find out who leaked the scripts and admits he has possible suspects lined up including 'Reservoir Dogs' star Michael Madsen and 'Django Unchained' producer Reginald Hudlin, who he claims let his agent read the script.

Tarantino explained: ''That's a betrayal, but not crippling because the agent didn't end up with the script. There is an ugly maliciousness to the rest of it. I gave it to three actors: Michael Madsen, Bruce Dern, Tim Roth. The one I know didn't do this is Tim Roth. One of the others let their agent read it, and that agent has now passed it on to everyone in Hollywood.''

‘The Guest’ Is a Fun ’80s Throwback With Sci-Fi and Stalker Sprinkles on Top [Movie Review]

Sep 18 2014 8:00pm CDT | Source: slash film

Update from editor Peter Sciretta: The following review was published by Germain Lussier on January 19th 2014 from the 2014 Sundance Film Festival. The movie is out in theaters this week: The films by director Adam Wingard and writer Simon Barrett always have one thing in common. They are obviously influenced by an intense passion for movies, but are not overtly obvious about referencing those movies. In that sense, The Guest might feel like something you’ve se ...

WINTER’S TALE Blu-ray Review

Sep 2 2014 7:00am CDT | Source: Collider

Quentin Tarantino has complained about how one of the biggest problems with American cinema is that it’s afraid of big emotions.  Of melodrama that might descend into camp (or perhaps is camp to begin with).  And it’s true, more movies are likely to adapt an ironic distance than go for something earnest.  There’s a reason for that: when earnest doesn’t work, you get films like The Postman and The R ...

How Japanese Filmmaking, Especially Anime is the Most Educational Thing for an Aspiring Filmmaker

Aug 24 2014 7:39pm CDT | Source: movie pilot

Being the film geek of my school I’m always asked, “What’s your favorite movie?” or “What are your top ten movies?”, and my response is always “I’ll get back to you on that”. I’ve honestly been meaning to but it’s really hard to create a list of my favorite films when I’m constantly remembering more and more films that stuck out to me. However the most interesting question I’ve been asked is “What films inspire you?”. This is a question I’d really like to answer s ...
