Tarantino Wants Christoph Waltz & Bruce Dern for His New Western
Following the Best Picture nominated Django Unchained, director Quentin Tarantino revealed last fall that his next film would be another western. However, no details were made available at that time. But now we have a better idea of what Tarantino has in store for audiences as Deadline reports that the working title of the film is The Hateful Eight with the first draft completed and currently being shown to actors he's hoping to land for the picture. And who are those actors? Well, Tarantino wants to bring Christoph Waltz back in front of the camera after helping the actor win two Oscars, and also Nebraska star Bruce Dern.
Unfortunately, that's all the details that have surfaced so far. But just the prospect of having Waltz and Dern together in a western from Tarantino is pretty enticing. Dern is enjoying a resurgence with a fantastic performance in Nebraska, and despite being 77 years old, he's as feisty and energetic as ever (and had a role in Django Unchained). Plus, Waltz teaming with Tarantino again is just icing on the cake after beginning with Inglourious Basterds. Supposedly Tarantino wants to shoot this summer, but that's no guarantee at this point since the script is in early stages. Hopefully we get some story details soon though so we know what we'll be getting into with Tarantino and the western genre again. Sound good?
