Quentin Tarantino Shelves The Hateful Eight After Script Leak

Posted by monique On January - 22 - 2014 0 Comment

Quentin Tarantino’s next project was supposed to be the western “The Hateful Eight,” but unfortunately for Tarantino fans, that movie now won’t see the light of day. The film isn’t being shelved for regular movie-making reasons, such as finding the right stars or having enough money. It’s being shelved because someone thought it was a good idea to leak the script.

According to Entertainment Weekly, a source close to the director has confirmed that the film’s screenplay was leaked, leading to the decision to shelve the film. Tarantino himself told Deadline that he found out about the leak when his agent, Mike Simpson, started getting calls from other agents wanting to pitch their own clients for roles in “The Hateful Eight.”

“I’m very, very depressed. I finished a script, a first draft, and I didn’t mean to shoot it until next winter, a year from now. I gave it to six people, and apparently it’s gotten out today,” he told the website.

Tarantino doesn’t know how the script was leaked, but he does know that it only comes down to the six people he gave the script to, including actors Michael Madsen, Tim Roth, and Bruce Dern. He thinks that either Dern or Madsen leaked the script to his agent, and now the agent has spread it all around town.

As of right now, Tarantino says he’ll publish “The Hateful Eight” as a book.
“I give it out to six people, and if I can’t trust them to that degree, then I have no desire to make it. I’ll publish it. I’m done,” he said. “I’ll move on to the next thing. I’ve got 10 more where that came from.”
