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.

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.

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

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

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.
