The show must go on. At least according to Quentin Tarantino. After the script of his new movie, The Hateful Eight, was leaked by online site, Gawker, Tarantino filed a lawsuit and reportedly said that he wouldn’t be filming the movie anymore.
The Hateful Eight, is a post-Civil war western, and a nod to the Steve McQueen movie, The Magnificent Seven. When the script leaked, Tarantino said he only gave it to six people. He assumed that one of the actor’s agents released the script to the public.
During the leak in January, he said, “I don’t know how these f—ing agents work, but I’m not making this [movie] next. I gave it out to six people, and if I can’t trust them to that degree, then I have no desire to make it.”
Apparently, the quirky director had a change of heart. In April, he held a reading for the script, which created a buzz for the film. He later told the crowd that he was working on a new draft….and on Sunday, during an interview at Comic-Con, he announced that he would be officially starting production.
I believe that Tarantino has the talent to pull off another script….an unleaked version of course. His fans will still flock to the theaters to support him, even if they have already read it online. He should definitely continue to make the movie.
Do you think Tarantino should still put the film out?
