Filmmaker Quentin Tarantino’s Western The Hateful Eight has gone through a bit of a whirlwind when it comes to its development. Earlier this year, it was announced that Tarantino was planning another Western as his follow-up to Django Unchained, a film called The Hateful Eight that would potentially be toplined by Bruce Dern and Christoph Waltz. Just a little over a week later, Tarantino’s full script was leaked and published online, offending the filmmaker and leading him to say that he was putting the project aside and might instead just publish the finished screenplay when it’s done.
Fast forward to a few days ago at the Cannes Film Festival where Tarantino was screening Pulp Fiction for its 20th anniversary, and the director admitted that he had “calmed down” a bit re: The Hateful Eight after a live read of the script, adding that he was in the midst of finishing the second draft and intended to do a third draft. Well now it looks like Hateful Eight might be QT’s next flim after all, as a new report corroborates earlier claims that the pic will go before cameras this November. Hit the jump for more.
