Quentin Tarantino was in the middle of working on The Hateful Eight script when it leaked, and decided to scrap the project even though he wanted it to be his next film. Tarantino explained that he was frustrated with the leak to the point where he decided to put The Hateful Eight aside and work on something else. But it looks like he can’t let the project go since this past weekend he hosted a live-reading of the script with Samuel L. Jackson, Kurt Russell, Tim Roth, Bruce Dern, and more reading the various parts. At the live-reading, Tarantino told the audience that they would be hearing an in-progress second draft of the script, and he planned to write a third draft. He also noted that the final chapter—”Black Night, White Hell” would be changed, “So the only time it will be seen is here, tonight,” he told the audience according The Playlist. Kind of makes that $200 ticket well worth the price of admission.
