The leaks are out! Details on Quentin Tarantino's The Hateful Eight

01.23.2014

The other day we got the news that Quentin Tarantino would no longer be making a big screen version of THE HATEFUL EIGHT due to a script leak. The director suspected CAA who rep actor Bruce Dern but the agency denied these allegations. I knew the script would wind up online fairly quick, and TheWrap has already obtained a copy.

I feel sort of odd taking a peek at what the director had planned though at the same time I am insanely curious as well. There’s no telling when Tarantino will get around to making this, if that day ever even comes. Though he said the project was his “baby”, the director also stated that it would not be the next film that he made. But for those who want to take a look at Tarantino’s vision, I invite you to skip past this picture and dive into the details with me.

 

 

The Wrap first teases the opening of the film with a photo of the actual script. Why they thought it was clever to paste Tarantino's angry face on there, I have no idea:

The site then gets into the story and characters:

The script is an ensemble Western with obvious parts for Madsen and Dern, as well as Tarantino stalwarts like Samuel L. Jackson and Christoph Waltz. Jackson and Madsen would likely both play bounty hunters returning human plunder to a town called Red Rock in exchange for hefty rewards. Their characters, a former major in the Union army and a man named John Ruth, dominate the first two of the script’s five chapters.

They run into a Southerner named Chris Mannix on the road, and three of them, along with their driver — a living prisoner and three dead bounties strapped to the roof — arrive at a haberdashery to take shelter from an oncoming blizzard. Yet the proprietors, Minnie, Sweet Dave and her other colleagues, are nowhere to be found. In their place are four men, a Southern general (likely Dern), an alleged hangman, a Frenchman named Bob and a cowboy named Joe Gage.

Mistrust, coffee and violence ensue.

This one is set almost entirely in two settings – a stagecoach and the haberdashery. That is a much smaller canvas than Taratino usually works on, but the bloody, sharply written, typo-filled script is vintage Quentin. There’s a little Russian roulette, some vomit and frequent duplicity.

The five chapters are “Last Stage to Red Rock,” “Son of A Gun,” “Minnie’s,” ‘The Four Pasggengers” and “Black night, White Hell.” Here’s an image of the one section Tarantino crossed out, so as not to ruin anything. Oswaldo is the hangman and Domergue a prisoner.

Thankfully they didn't spoil it all, otherwise I'd have serious issues sharing this. Have I left you wanting more?

Quentin could play Mean Machine Angel in Dredd 2. He's permanently dialed up to 4.

What in the actual fuck ...

I have no idea where this "obvious part for Christoph Waltz" was supposed to be - unless he's expected to suddenly be French. Also the Wrap leaves out there was a part for Zoe Bell as well, and the part for Tim Roth was totes Oswaldo the Hangman.

He'd fluent in the language, and has spoken it in both of his outings with Tarantino.

In schools across Europe children are encouraged and forced by curriculumns to learn multiple languages as Europe has so many of them. In the Netherlands in the 60's and 70's you had to learn a minimum of 5 languages. This is not the same for every country (5 languages), but learning multiple languages is standard fare over there. Unlike the USA that has to deal with Spanish (or Mexican depending how backwards you are) and English, this does not apply. So Christoph Waltz could certainly play a

So Christoph Waltz could certainly play a frenchman, as he's spoken it (quite well by the way, per this frenchman) in Tarantino movies and is a very talented actor.

So he could do well in that role.

And those were final drafts that leaked! Not a rough draft of an unpolished script, like hateful eight

I believe the difference is that The Hateful Eight script was just a first draft and he gave it to a handful of people.
