Quentin Tarantino's The Hateful Eight might still happen with new ending

Apr. 21, 2014by:

Quentin Tarantino held a staged reading for his leaked THE HATEFUL EIGHT script on Saturday, where the director revealed he is working on a second draft of the script with a completely different ending. Tarantino told the crowd the script is divided into five different chapters, and the fifth chapter (titled "Black Night, White Hell") will be rewritten or removed.

The reading for Quentin Tarantino's three-hour-plus screenplay was performed by Samuel L. Jackson, Tim Roth, Kurt Russell, Amber Tamblyn, Bruce Dern, Walton Goggins, James Parks, Michael Madsen and James Remar, and the audience really enjoyed Tarantino's latest script. THR described it as "a combination of Western and Agatha Christie-style whodunit" involving a coffee pot filled with poison, and like previous work from the filmmaker, contains plenty of humor and violence.

Does this mean a film version for THE HATEFUL EIGHT isn't dead? It certainly sounds like Quentin Tarantino might still be interested in making it into a movie, and I really hope THE HATEFUL EIGHT does actually happen as a film.

There's no word on what his plans might be for the second draft (and God help us if that gets leaked as well), however we do know the current script ends with (WARNING: MAJOR SPOILER ALERT!)...

...all of the major characters dying.

Dear Quentin

Some, and probably a lot of us did not read the leak script. Some of us who love seeing a movie for the first time in the theater avoid leaks and spoilers. It is also possible, that I may have never known your script leaked, if it hadn't been for your announcement of plans to stop production for go on the project. It leaked, that sucks, but this is the 21st Internet Century where things leaking out is nothing new. Good luck with the project and look forwarded to seeing it partner.

While it did proclaim "spoiler alert", I feel this writeup was rather poorly handled. I'd venture a guess that everyone who's upset assumed it was a link to the spoiler (it was a bit deeper shade of red than the links, but red nonetheless) and not just an announcement that it was about to reveal the ending (albeit the original ending which will most likely change) were you to scroll down. Disagree all you want, but it raises the question since when has knowing the finale been a prerequisite to

Disagree all you want, but it raises the question since when has knowing the finale been a prerequisite to discuss a film, especially on a website dedicated to the discussion of all things "movie" by movie fans?! It would be difficult to read anything in the Strikeback section and miss that reveal.

Spoiler alert

I mistook the "WARNING: MAJOR SPOILER ALERT!" text as a link to said spoiler so I skipped it and scrolled down toward the comments.

I thought it was a link too. I think the article just wanted to sound cool enough that they knew the ending, because so many of us didn't, that they spoiled it to be "in the know" over the rest of us.

I was gonna say that QT should make the movie as-is, fuck the leak, but then I saw that spoiler which serves no purpose and only ruins something awesome. Every day this site is killing me more and more.

What was the point of spoiling the end like that? I skipped the article cause I didn't want to spoil anything, but wanted to read the comments. I saw the picture, which usually indicates the end of an article, and I scrolled down a bit more and BAM! A pointless spoiler for the ending. Why? What was the reason for it? What does it even add to the content of the article?

Also, why not make spoiler text white so people actually have to highlight it to read?

They wrote SPOILER WARNING in big bold letters. Not good enough. They added a big picture to separate it from the paragraph. Not good enough. How many hoops do they need to jump through? Sooner or later this site is going to be just headlines.

Yes cereal, like it used to be when it was better. Joblo was never better than when all the headlines were stacked along the left side of the screen. After that format change I bailed for over a year. And a better way to avoid pissing people off? No spoilers before release or maybe spoiler text?

Hope it happens, but dang, I'm kind of disappointed that I read that spoiler warning by accident (my own stupid fault). It sounds like an intriguing ending, though, so I'm not sure if I want him to change it! Well, whatever he decides, I'll be there opening night.

I'll always looks forward to what Tarantino has coming up. I find it funny though that after it leaked he was like "big deal, I've got 8 more ideas or scripts just waiting" yet he continues to talk about this one and not let it go.

Glad to see Quentin changing his mind and maybe making this his next film. Wouldn't mind if the people who did the table read actually starred in the actual film. Especially Jackson and Goggins.

The hell??

You can't put "major spoiler alert" RIGHT BEFORE you reveal the spoiler.

Why not? There was a spoiler warning before the spoiler.

That's why there was a picture before the spoiler, so you had a chance to leave.
