THE HATEFUL EIGHT Gets Back On Track For Winter Shoot

Director Quentin Tarantino is currently in the middle of a second rewrite with a third rewrite on the way for the forthcoming production of his new western, The Hateful Eight. The news of the film's return to production comes after controversy arose with the leak of Tarantino's script through Gawker, which led to two lawsuits - one in January which was dismissed by a judge in April, followed by an amended complaint on May 1.

Last month, with the film on the backburner at the time, Tarantino decided to team up with non-profit organization, Film Independent, to showcase a stage reading of the very script that would have likely been used were it not for Gawker's leak. Now, it seems Tarantino fans will have something awesome to look forward to at the movies when the cameras start rolling (hopefully on Cinemascope 70mm as previously planned) in Wyoming this November.

Actor Christopher Waltz will not be joining Tarantino for the film, which currently has actresses Zoë Bell and Amber Tamblyn, and actors Samuel L. Jackson, Bruce Dern, Michael Madsen, Kurt Russell, James Remar and Walt Goggins.

As for developments regarding Tarantino's 2012 Civil War-era love letter to spaghetti western blaxploitation, Django Unchained, Tarantino stirred things up at Cannes last week with mention of applying some unused material for the initial film to a possible 4-part miniseries. Or something, and one could only hope.

Stay tuned for more info!
