Quentin Tarantino's Hateful Eight may start shooting in early 2015
When Quentin Taratino's latest script, THE HATEFUL EIGHT, leaked for the masses the read, the man said he would shelve the project, but not before showcasing a three-hour reading with a well-rounded cast. Either Tarantino calmed down by that point or he loves the material too much to let it go, as the idea came to him to write a different third act and still film it. It seems that possibility is quickly becoming a reality, as Kurt Russell recent spoke out about the project.
In Russell's own words:
There's a Tarantino project called The Hateful Eight that looks like it may go somewhere around the beginning of the year.
All the signs are pointing towards us getting a cinematic HATEFUL EIGHT, which is just fine by me. Tarantino's turn into the western genre in DJANGO UNCHAINED was a lot of fun, if not a little long. With the cast who was available for the three-hour reading, I would love to see that line-up on the big screen!
THE HATEFUL EIGHT, which recently featured Samuel L. Jackson, Tim Roth, Kurt Russell, Amber Tamblyn, Bruce Dern, Walton Goggins, James Parks, Michael Madsen and James Remar in a live reading, should start shooting early 2015.
