Quentin Tarantino is still suing Gawker for allegedly linking to his “Hateful Eight” script, but the experience might not have soured him on making the movie after all.
Deadline reports that the acclaimed “Django Unchained” director held a live reading of the script in Los Angeles, with some of the stars originally rumored to take part in the production.
With Samuel L. Jackson, Kurt Russell, Bruce Dern, Amber Tamblyn and Tim Roth in tow, the nearly four-hour reading garnered “several” standing ovations.
Set in post-Civil War Wyoming, Tarantino shared that he might not nix the project as he originally stated.
“I’m working on a second draft and I will do a third draft, but we’re reading from the first draft,” he told the crowd (via Deadline). “The Chapter 5 here will not be the Chapter 5 later, so this will be the only time it is seen ever.”
While he was planning to film “The Hateful Eight” next winter, details are murky on whether the script will be his next project.
