Rumor: Jennifer Lawrence may join Quentin Tarantino's The Hateful Eight

Aug. 21, 2014by:

A union many of us have wished for may soon become a reality; it’s been said that the great and powerful Jennifer Lawrence is in talks to join Quentin Tarantino’s latest grim tale, THE HATEFUL EIGHT. A report from Collider, which we will say is a rumor for now, suggests that Lawrence could play a role in the movie. There is already a teaser trailer that you will see this weekend in front of SIN CITY: A DAME TO KILL FOR (JimmyO's review) but it doesn’t go as far as setting up a cast.

Bruce Dern, Kurt Russell, Michael Madsen, James Remar, Walton Goggins, and Samuel L. Jackson have all been rumored since their participation in the live-reading of the script that took place, but that’s about it for casting talks. That teaser trailer, which we described for you, only has character name cards and the only female name card would be that of Daisy Domergue, "The Prisoner". The live-read had a second female role, Six Horse Judy played by Zoe Bell, but that role could have been scrapped.

Other than unsubstantiated news, there isn’t much more to go by here. If she is in fact talking about being in the film, with her busy schedule, don’t be surprised if it’s a cameo like that of Jonah Hill in DJANGO UNCHAINED. Since it’s so early in production too, QT could say to hell with a lot what we know already (thanks script leak) and re-write parts and gender-swap to his heart’s content.

The idea of having J-Law show up in a Tarantino movie is all kinds of exciting. She’s beautiful, talented, and has shown she can take on most any role; she also has a good eye for some outstanding parts so let’s hope this rumor holds true. THE HATEFUL EIGHT is still expected to be released late 2015.

Would you be up for Jennifer Lawrence in a Quentin Tarantino film?

Hell Yes!!...please make this happen!!

I'd love to see Jennifer Lawrence in a QT film...I think Lawrence can play any role on screen. Here's hoping it comes to fruition.

She's waaaaay too young and too pretty for Daisy.

Amber Tamblyn was kind of perfect casting for the live read. I'm gonna assume that if JLaw is being cast, it's gotta be a small role.
But it would be amazing for Ms Hunger Games to shout "Howdy, Nigger!" (Not that I read the script or anything...)

Walt Goggins and Quentin- there's a match made in movie heaven. And thanks for this update about my future second wife Jennifer.

Its getting kind of annoying that shes appearing in everything now. I don't think shes that good of a actress. She is the kind of actress/actor that is the current hot thing going on right now but in 5 years she will just be the person appearing in these crappy movies no ones gonna watch until they appear on TV.

It's going to be really weird hearing Jennifer saying the N-word so many times if she's playing the character I think she's playing. But I digress.

I'm all for it.

I'm not a fan at all. She is extremely overhyped and just not that great. I'd say she's on the same level of mediocrity as Scarlett Johansson. Not as horrid and agonizing to watch as Megan Fox, but really bland.

I am so happy Tarantino decided to move along with this project. However, was Amber Tamblyn cast in the film? I suspect that Lawrence may be taking over that role. It seemed that Tarantino really wanted to cast her, considering her role in Django was literally limited to one shot.

Gonna have to disagree with the rest. Don't think she's a good actress. She was okay in Silver Linings Playbook, though Cooper blew her away in every scene, and she was downright annoying in American Hustle.

She'd be a great addition. She's so young and has already with a good number of interesting directors, to work with Tarantino would be awesome!

She would be a welcomed addition to Tarantino's violent universe. She's already proven enough times she can hold her own and then some.

Here's to hoping this is true, and she gets the role of Daisy Ddomergue and he scraps amber tamblyn from the cast. She sucks.
