Samuel L. Jackson and Quentin Tarantino

Briefly: This month we learned that Quentin Tarantino would give a small audience the chance to see his delayed western The Hateful Eight come to life in the form of a live-reading of the script at at LACMA on April 24th. Tarantino was also said to be directing and picking the cast for this special event that will not be recorded or broadcast to the public, and Deadline has confirmed (complete with a tweet from Film Independent) that Samuel L. Jackson will yet again collaborate with his Pulp Fiction and Django Unchained director for some sort of role in the reading. We're not sure who else might pop up, but stay tuned for more. Reporting on this event is about as close as we'll get to being in attendance, so stay tuned.

Drumming up for the announcement that it is back on, no less.

I hope so. I want this.

that seemed to be the case - he said he was on his third draft now, and that the live-read was from the first (which was the leaked version). said he is re-doing chapter five entirely. he's probably pissed b/c he has to rewrite half his movie just because some ass in hollywood thought he was cool showing a tarantino script to a model and it leaked.

Dear whomever leaked this script, FUCK YOU. Sincerely, All of Taratino's fans being punished

It was a shitty thing to do for sure, but Tarantino could just stop being such a stubborn prick and make it anyway.

Relax. Read the script. It's available now because Tarantino put it out there to be read. Are you naive enough to believe after all these years Tarantino is so naive to think when one puts out a script to be read it won't be leaked? He's getting a lot of attention and publicity and he loves it!! Come on, man. If you think you are being punished you got a complex. It's only in your mind. Just read the script and

well, aren't you a pompous ass. could you maybe say naive a few more times?

Astroboy3000 on Apr 19, 2014


Really? Why and how did you come to the conclusion that I'm a pompous ass? It's clear that your perceptions are distorted by emotions, anger being the main culprit. How can you say Fuck you to some party or person that maybe didn't even intentionally leak the scipt? That is just happens when a script goes out and people start copying it in house and lo and behold it gets leaked. However, in re-reading my post I saw how I was attempting to use humor and irony to point out to you that you need not feel like you're being punished by all this silly and childish nonsense. That perhaps Tarantino isn't as naive (there's that word again, as he likes you to believe; that he knows exactly what he is doing. And for this you reply with even more anger? It's sad and a pity, but I wish you well and it wasn't my intention to upset you. Again, try to relax. I am not and was not attacking you. No one is out to get you. You are not being punished. None of this is important in the long run. Not really. Take care.

I'm not going to read that. Brevity, Bo, brevity.

Astroboy3000 on Apr 20, 2014


Really? bit too long for you, eh? Sorry about that; well, not really...just being a bit ironic again. Well, I reckon you better not try to read Tarantino's script then because it is REALLY, REALLY long that he's said he might even delete the whole 5th chapter...

Tonight I witnessed a legendary Director at work. I am someone who is greatly inspired by Tarantino and love the universes he creates. This reading showed me a side of Tarantino that I feel honored to have seen. His dedication and passion for his story along with characters development, is beyond encouraging. His choice of casting and his written script action allowed Quentin fanatics to obsorb something genuine. As I was force to leave my cell phone in the car I left the Ace Hotel more uplifted then I’ve been in a long time at entertainment. Somehow I felt this was a way for Tarantino to connect to his most passionate film buffets. Allowing us to watch him work.
