As a film, Quentin Tarantino‘s western The Hateful Eight is dead. (Or it may not be, but don’t queue up for tickets any time soon.) The script, however, will come to life on stage at LACMA thanks to Film Independent. That’s the same outfit that promotes Jason Reitman’s Live Read series, which we’ve covered many times in the past. Now Film Independent has scheduled the ultimate Live Read, as Quentin Tarantino will direct The Hateful Eight once, live, on stage. Read More »

Is this a rumor based in fact, or simply wishful thinking? Recently Quentin Tarantino said he would scuttle his planned film The Hateful Eight after the script leaked around Hollywood. (While the leak was initially an industry-only thing, the script quickly reached all corners of the internet.) In his fury at the first draft going public, Tarantino said he would bail on directing the movie, and focus instead on another film idea he’s been working on. The Hateful Eight would be published as a book, he said, but that was small consolation to those interested in seeing the film.
But now new rumors say that he’s going to direct the film after all. Read More »
Last week Quentin Tarantino made headlines when he bailed on making the western The Hateful Eight after a first draft of the script leaked. The leak was originally fairly small, with copies of Seth MacFarlane’s A Million Ways to Die in the West distributed as a fake version of The Hateful Eight. But the Tarantino script soon started to pop up all over the internet, with Gawker site Defamer eventually offering a download link for anyone who wanted it.
Now Tarantino is suing Gawker Media for copyright infringement and contributory copyright infringement. Read More »
Every once in a while, something amazing pops up on the internet, maybe a piece of history from a time before WiFi and iPhones, something most of us never imagined we’d get to see. Old interviews, behind the scenes documentaries and sometimes even set footage from movies of the ’70s, ’80s and ’90s occasionally appear online and it’s like Christmas all over again.
Christmas is back today as someone has uncovered an eight minute video of Quentin Tarantino and Steve Buscemi rehearsing scenes from Reservoir Dogs. This is incredible, fly on the wall stuff. Check it out below. Read More »

Just a few days after the title of Quentin Tarantino‘s next project was revealed to be The Hateful Eight, the director has indefinitely delayed the film. The reason? He’s “very, very depressed” after learning that someone has leaked the screenplay.
But there’s hope yet that we’ll get to see the story — just not necessarily in movie form. Tarantino is reportedly considering publishing the script as a novel, with the possibility of a movie adaptation down the line. Hit the jump for the latest updates.

NOTE: We ran this article in 2011, 2012, 2013 and have updated it for 2014.
The Sundance Film Festival is the best known film festival in the United States. Say the word “Sundance” to anyone, film lover or not, and chances are they’ve heard of the festival. As a movie blog though, the problem with covering Sundance is that virtually all of the movies are brand new. We haven’t heard of them, you haven’t heard of them, so why would you even care about them?
More than any of the casting news, trailers or film stills that we post on a daily basis, what happens in that small corner of Utah for a little over a week in January is probably the most important movie event of the year. Even so, talk to the most seasoned movie fan and they don’t spend half as much time focusing on what’s going on at Sundance as they do bitching about movies that came out three years ago. Plain and simple, the best films that you will see in theaters for the next 12 months are being shown at Sundance over the next week and a half. And while you probably haven’t heard of them in January, you’ll definitely have heard of them by December. Don’t you want in on the ground floor?
For the next 7 days myself, Russ Fischer and Peter Sciretta will be in Park City, Utah at the Sundance Film Festival. And while you might not be eager to click and read about a movie you haven’t heard of yet, we urge you to do so. Some of the films that people hadn’t heard of when they played Sundance in the past are films like Saw, The Blair Witch Project, Donnie Darko, 28 Days Later, Napoleon Dynamite, Memento, Bottle Rocket, Clerks, Reservoir Dogs and The Usual Suspects. Think of all the movies that have been made since because filmmakers like Christopher Nolan, Wes Anderson, Kevin Smith, Quentin Tarantino and Bryan Singer broke out at the Sundance Film Festival. Who is the breakout star this year? You’ll have to follow our coverage to find out.
Still not convinced? We’ve compiled even more films that you know and love that got their start at Sundance after the jump. Read More »
The title of Quentin Tarantino‘s next film might have just been revealed. Late last year, the Oscar-winning writer revealed his follow-up to Django Unchained would be an unrelated western and Deadline is reporting the working title to that film is The Hateful Eight. They also report Tarantino has begun to circulate an early draft of the script to some actors he’s interested in appearing in the film. The first is no surprise. It’s his Oscar-winning muse Christoph Waltz. The second is current Oscar-contender Bruce Dern. Filming might take place this summer. Read More »
