Three months ago filmmaker Quentin Tarantino said he was cancelling his plans to make his leaked western movie script “Hateful Eight” into a movie, opting instead to publish the screenplay as a book.
At the time though he also gave the caveat that he may return to the project some time in the future. That time may be sooner than expected judging by the one-night-only stage reading of the screenplay which took place this weekend.
Tarantino told the audience that the script is still very much a work in progress and he is “working right now on a second draft” whilst the reading was from the first draft. Split into five chapters, Tarantino says the final chapter would either be removed or completely rewritten.
Samuel L. Jackson, Tim Roth, Kurt Russell, Amber Tamblyn, Bruce Dern, Walton Goggins, James Parks, Michael Madsen and James Remar all turned up for the three hour reading of the Old West tale which follows eight people trapped in a haberdashery due to a blizzard.
