Quentin Tarantino To Revive The Hateful Eight With Samuel L Jackson And Bruce Dern Heading Up The Cast

Quentin Tarantino will start shooting his once abandoned Hateful Eight movie this November, according to reports. The director has been working on a new script for the western, following a screenplay leak earlier this year that left him devastated.

A copy of the 146-page script for the Django Unchained filmmaker's new project was leaked by an unidentified source in January. Tarantino recently dropped a lawsuit against Gawker, who linked to a copy of the screeplay when the news broke.

After working hard on a new version of the script, it's been reported by veteran entertainment journalist Roger Friedman, on Showbiz411, that the new movie will begin shooting this year.

The Hateful Eight cast will be made up of the actors who took part in a live reading of the movie's screenplay in Los Angeles last month, according to the report. These include Samuel L Jackson, Bruce Dern, Michael Madsen, Kurt Russell, James Remar, Amber Tamblyn, Walt Goggins, and Zoe Bell.

According to the reading, the movie centres around a group of outlaws stranded in a saloon after a blizzard diverts a stagecoach from its route.

Tarantino's long-time collaborators, Jackson and Russell, played a pair of duelling bounty hunters for the live reading while Reservoir Dogs' Madsen read the part of a cowboy. It's not known if the actors will keep to these parts for the actual movie.

Tararantino hinted at plans to revive the movie at the Cannes film festival last week.

"We'll see. I'm still writing the script right now," he said when asked if the movie might ever hit cinemas. "I have calmed down a bit. The knife-in-the-back wound has started to scab."
