Quentin Tarantino Confirms The Hateful Eight Is Back On

By Mark Hodge (DoddleNEWS)

Quentin Tarantino’s next project will be ensemble western The Hateful Eight.

The Pulp Fiction director confirmed at Comic-Con that, despite the leaking of the original script?by website Gawker, the film will be produced with a rewritten screenplay.

He said: "Yeah, we’re going to be doing?The Hateful Eight.”

Tarantino was initially apoplectic with rage when the first draft was leaked online, launching a lawsuit – which he subsequently dropped, but then refiled – and claiming that he would no longer direct the film.

However, since then the Oscar winner seems to have cooled down. First he decided against taking legal action against the online publication, and then hosted a reading with all the main cast members in front of a live audience.

The cast in question included Bruce Dern, Kurt Russell Tim Roth, Samuel L. Jackson, and Michael Madsen. Actor Russell, who previously worked with Tarantino on Death Proof, recently confirmed that he expected shooting to start in early 2015.

Tarantino’s confirmation that the project will go ahead is good news for fans of the director, considering his output over the years has been sporadic. Indeed, the cancellation of The Hateful Eight would surely have meant fans would have had to wait around another two to three years before another project from the Django Unchained filmmaker.

The Hateful Eight is set in post Civil War U.S. -- here is a synopsis, via Collider:

The Hateful Eight follows the steadily ratcheting tension that develops after a blizzard diverts a stagecoach from its route, and traps a pitiless and mistrustful group which includes a competing pair of bounty hunters, a renegade Confederate soldier, and a female prisoner in a saloon in the middle of nowhere.

Stay tuned for more Quentin Tarantino and The Hateful Eight news.
