Quentin Tarantino has finished writing his latest, The Hateful Eight, and is looking to Bruce Dern and Christoph Waltz to star

Jan. 11, 2014by: Alex Maidy

Ladies and gentlemen, Quentin Tarantino has finished drafting his latest screenplay. Let the casting begin! As the DJANGO UNCHAINED and PULP FICTION director is prone to do, he has begun reaching out to potential stars he has in mind for his next film, a western rumored to be titled THE HATEFUL EIGHT. Two actors being pursued are Christoph Waltz and Bruce Dern, both veterans of DJANGO UNCHAINED.

Deadline broke news of the script being completed and that Dern and Waltz are being considered. Tarantino will likely see if the actors are interested and then further develop the script once he knows for sure. Dern is currently a top contender for an Oscar nomination for his work in Alexander Payne's NEBRASKA and had a tiny role as the slave owner who separated Django from Broomhilda in the Best Picture nominated DJANGO. Waltz, of course, is the two time Oscar winner for Tarantino's last pair of films.

Consider this the point where we can begin salivating over the prospects of what the next Tarantino movie will have in store. Keep in mind that both the genre and title are rumors at this point and until the screenplay inevitably leaks in the coming months we are at the mercy of rumor. Exciting rumors, but rumors nonetheless.

I'm always excited to see what Quentin is doing next, as he never disappoints me. I am surprised he's doing another western, as his last one was also a western. I'd love to see him tackle sci-fi or a super hero movie.

Waltz goes three-for-three in the Oscars with this one. You heard it here. Plus, I like in his acceptance speeches how he says "Qventin." Haha.

I'd love to see Arnold Schwarzenegger in a Tarantino film.

He is not all action and is surprisingly good at delivering comedic lines. I was watching Escape Plan and that scene with the drawing was hilarious.

I'll never understand why everyone automatically creams themselves over Tarantino movies. He's done 7 movies in 22 years, 2 of which are great (both of which were 20 years ago), 2 of which were good (KB and DU), and 3 of which suck. Jackie Brown and Inglorious Basterds are ridiculously dumb snorefests that are nearly unwatchable in repeat viewings, and Death Proof was a steaming pile of shit. You think he will ever do a movie again that's actually original and isn't essentially a remake of some

I see that everyone is already saying that this will be a homage (a nice way to say ripoff or knockoff) of Magnificent Seven.

I wholeheartedly agree with you about everything you wrote. But beware. I wrote these exact thoughts about QT a couple years ago and my email was immediately firebombed with spam. My email provider had to shut my account down because it received 3k spam at once. Two psychotic QT fan-boys openly wrote on joblo saying they did it. One of them I believe was Korean. They went as far as hacking my joblo account and attaining my password so they can log in and write stupid shit.

Nonetheless I actually think "True Romance", "Natural Born Killers" and "Pulp Fiction" were QT's best works. True Romance and NBK's was obviously only written and not directed by QT. Crazy to think that QT's scripts that he did not direct himself ended up being in my opinion his best work, As for "Pulp Fiction". I have read numerous accounts that Roger Avery had a lot to do with making Pulp Fiction script work. Just google "quentin tarantino roger avary feud" for that information.

I for one would love to see Gary Oldman back in a wacky costume and weird hairdo gleefully chewing scenery with some more Tarantino monologues. And given how close they came to getting Django, throw in Will Smith and Idris Elba for good measure. Maybe a dose of Daniel Craig playing a hardass sadistic sheriff (think Gene Hackman circa UNFORGIVEN).

And having just re-watched GRINDHOUSE, get Kurt Russell again to play the retired gunslinger called back into action. Or, fuck it, just have him

Can't Wait

The one actor I want to see do a Tarantino is Denzel Washington. Good guy or villain I think would be epic. Get Kurt Russell back, Mickey Rourke would be interesting. Tom Cruise, DiCaprio, Brad Pitt, Tom Hardy, I'd like to see Johnny Depp in a Tarantino movie not sure if this is it. Guys like Michael Shannon, Gary Oldman (who was great with a Tarantino script), Eric Bana. Who knows I've seen a lot of great suggestions so it'll be interesting to see. Just get Denzel signed up lol.

If Django was just his warmup for the "western-ish" genre... then this will be scary good. There are way too many actors out there that would be great in a Tarantino western. I think the inclusion of a cowgirl in this group would be pretty badass. Uma would be the obvious choice, but hopefully it would be some young lady that we would never expect to see in this. That's what makes the casting news for Tarantino's movies so damned fun. You never know who is going to show up!

if this is going to be a crazy magnificent seven homage some actors I wouldn't mind seeing are: Russell Crowe, Antonio Banderas, Mel Gibson, Eric Bana, Ben Mendehlson, Gael Garcia Bernal, and ultimately Tom Hanks.

I'm calling it: 3 for 3 with Waltz getting Supporting Gold

As for the casting, assuming it's a western in a Magnificent 7-vein (a big assumption):
Dern, Waltz, Kevin Costner (on a comeback rampage and the right age), Billy Dee Williams (because Tarantino), Alan Alda (last chance at 77 and counting), Jeff Bridges (without the garbled True Grit voice), George Clooney, Willem Dafoe with Bryan Cranston being an alternate.

Sorry Tarantino fan boys, Quentin's a little overrated. That is not to say I don't enjoy his work. I just don't understand (to quote the writer) the "salivating" over it.

I don't hate him. I clearly stated I "enjoy" his work. Kill Bill Vol. 1 & 2 and Reservoir Dogs are some of my all time faves. I just think he's a bit overrated, held in high esteem as some film GOD and I also said I just don't get the "salivating" over it.

Eight badass cowboys who kill first and ask questions later?

Both of these guys are pretty much locks for Tarantino so lets continue speculating who else will be involved, shall we? Samuel L. Jackson is pretty much another guaranteed star, I'd also like to see Tarantino work with Kurt Russell and Christopher Walken.

Sounds promising

Though, considering that this is the third Tarantino project in a row that Waltz has been tapped for, I really hope this isn't turning into a Burton/Depp relationship. There comes a point where working so well with someone actually starts working against you. You become too in tune with each other, everything becomes rote, and your work suffers for it.

It would be cool to see Tom Cruise play a wild character in a Tarantino movie. I think they're a great match. Or maybe another classic/charismatic actor like Jack Nicholson or Gary Oldman. Christian Bale also sounds interesting since he can play almost any part.

Too bad were not getting something completely different from Tarantino, but I know he'll do an amazing job with a western since it's a passion of his. Some new faces that would be cool to see in this, maybe Sacha Baron Cohen, Josh Brolin or Javier Bardem.

"Facts can be so misleading, where rumors, true or false, are often revealing."

Ahh, feels good don't it?

To know your future favorite movie of 2015 (or least favorite, I won't judge .... T____T) exists on paper now.

Also Imma bet that the title is really "Hateful Eight" to keep in line with the rest of the Tarantino Catalog.

I still remember Deadline breaking the news that he had written Django.

And they also announced that he had sought Will Smith (which didn't pan out, of course), so this is almost definitely true since Deadline is the one reporting it again. As much as I loved the last two films he did with Waltz, I kinda hope this is a 'completion' of his spaghetti western trilogy and he maybe goes back to another genre again after this. I'd hate for it to become rote and stale which I fear is where he's headed. Even Kill Bill and Death Proof had a lot of spaghetti western
