BREAKING MOVIE NEWS
Basically, Tarantino’s lawyers are arguing the news cycle on the Hateful Eight agency leak had already run its course. So, in an effort to generate more coverage, Gawker allegedly went out of its way to uncover a place where the script could be downloaded, that wasn’t publicly known, and pointed people toward it.
We should probably add a new section to this website called Lawsuit Blend, considering how many legal fiascos involving Hollywood figures are always popping up. This week has already seen a few of them, but the one that has our ear constantly perked is the battle between Quentin Tarantino and Gawker.
What would Tyrese Gibson been able to do with Tarantino’s coaching? We can only speculate. That’s part of the problem – and the fun – of these dream-casting sessions. “What if?” we ask ourselves, knowing full well that it can never happen.
The post quickly collapses into a battle of he-said/she-said, with Gawker trying to get off on a technicality, because the site claims it didn’t physically put Tarantino’s screenplay online, but merely linked to the existing copy and let everyone else know where to find it.
Tarantino’s screenplay was a work in progress, though it now has become a work we never will see because the writer/director appears so wounded by the betrayal. Some additional sites, circling like vultures, published scathing “reviews” of the unpublished screenplay – even though Tarantino hadn’t finished working on it.
When the news broke earlier this week that Quentin Tarantino was shelving his script called The Hateful Eight, I was of two minds. Now that some details about the script have leaked out, however, I find myself really, really wishing that Tarantino will change his mind.
By now, you’ve probably heard the Quentin Tarantino news, but just in case you haven’t, let me give you the cliff notes version in a few sentences. He wrote a movie called The Hateful Eight. The citizens of the world collectively agreed it sounded awesome. He turned over the script to 6 people he trusted.
The good folks at Screencrush uncovered a rarity on YouTube, posted above, that shows the early rehearsals for the film. Seen in the clip, a composite of three scenes from the film, are Steve Buscemi, putting the material together before shooting.
The future looked set: last week it was reported that Quentin Tarantino was moving forward with an old school ensemble Western called The Hateful Eight as his ninth feature. But the future has been rewritten due to a betrayal in the writer/director's inner circle.
Ranging from Marvel superheroes to The ExpendaBelles and breaking into the Fast & Furious franchise, this charismatic Renaissance woman shares 6 dream projects she's fighting to make real.
Quentin Tarantino is a filmmaker who is known for making particular kinds of films, with adrenaline and testosterone always on full display, even when females are inciting the massive amounts of action. Another trait his movies share is a title with two words in it, assuming you count Kill Bill as one entire feature. If sources of sources of sources are indeed correct, Tarantino may buck this trend with his next film.
It’s been almost a year since Django Unchained arrived in theaters, and fans of Quentin Tarantino are likely to be eager to know what the director has coming up next. Tarantino revealed one key piece of information about his next project on The Tonight Show last night, telling Jay Leno that he’s working on a new western. But rest assured, it isn’t a sequel to Django Unchained.
Quentin Tarantino doesn't have a movie coming out this year, nor is he currently working on one, but that doesn't mean he won't do his damnedest to dominate the news anyway. Just after releasing his incredibly premature Top 10 list of the year, which included The Lone Ranger and Kick-Ass 2, he's given an interview to the French magazine Les Inrockuptibles in which he sounds off on Ben Affleck playing Batman.

With such a short gestation period – around four months from its initial SModcast conversation to a film soon to be in production – there are a lot of questions left to be answered where this movie in concerned, and Smith wrote a guest column for The Hollywood Reporter, getting some of those pesky details out of the way, such as the truth behind how he approached Quentin Tarantino for a role and why the film is seeing yet another delay in production.
The Quentin Tarantino Archives has released a list of the esteemed director’s favorite films of the year so far.
