Despite the ongoing lawsuit with Gawker regarding the script leak, Quentin Tarantino has decided to try something with his now shelved western screenplay “The Hateful Eight” – a live reading.
Akin to Jason Reitman’s Live Read series, Tarantino will direct a one night only live reading of the script at LACMA (Los Angeles County Museum of Art) on April 24th with tickets set at a costly $200.
Film Independent and Tarantino are promising a unique experience which will be the first and only time “The Hateful Eight” is performed live in front of an audience.
It will not be recorded or live streamed either, and it’s expected that the cast will not be revealed until the night of the show itself.
The script begins with a blizzard that diverts a stagecoach from its route and traps a pitiless and mistrustful group comprised of a competing pair of bounty hunters, a renegade Confederate soldier, and a female prisoner in a saloon in the middle of nowhere.
