It’s not so unusual for movies to get an extended director’s cut on Blu-ray, but Quentin Tarantino hopes to take things one step further with Django Unchained. During a Cannes event, the filmmaker revealed that he wants to turn the 2012 Western into a four-hour miniseries by adding back the extra material he’d cut for the theatrical release. Hit the jump to read his comments.

There isn’t even a movie at this point, but there is a poster for Quentin Tarantino‘s The Hateful Eight. Granted, since there isn’t a movie (or a cast, or a plan for a movie) this Hateful Eight poster is pretty basic. It is related to the live-read staged by Tarantino a couple weeks ago, as a benefit for Film Independent in Los Angeles.
In fact, the poster itself is a part of the fundraising effort for Film Independent. Matt Owen designed the one-sheet, which you can see in full below. Read More »
It seems like the best hope for Quentin Tarantino‘s live read of The Hateful Eight — that working on the staged reading of the script would revive the director’s interest in making a film — could become a reality. On Saturday night at the Ace Hotel in Los Angeles, the director assembled a cast of “Tarantino Superstars” to perform a one-time reading of the first draft of his western The Hateful Eight. He had famously planned to shoot the film this year, but scrapped that plan after a first draft of the script leaked online.
While there is no hard and fast plan to make the movie just yet, Tarantino did announce at the reading that he is writing a second draft and is planning to follow through with a third. Read More »
One of the biggest easter eggs in Captain America: The Winter Soldier has to do with Pulp Fiction. Yes, the 1994 Quentin Tarantino masterpiece. Towards the end of the film there’s a blink-and-you’ll-miss-it reference to the film that either gets huge laughs from an audience, or total silence if they don’t have time to figure it out.
Where exactly this happens is a bit of a spoiler so, below, we’ll describe it and let directors Anthony and Joe Russo tell you how this Pulp Fiction Captain America reference came to be. Read More »
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 »
