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