Tarantino’s Next Film Is A Western, Possibly Titled ‘The Hateful Eight’


Anytime Quentin Tarantino begins to make progress on a new project, the floodgates holding rumors and gossip at bay open wide. People love this man’s movies, our staff included, and due to the amount of time that tends to pass between project’s it’s easy to understand why his fans’ thirst for new ideas is so rabid. We try to keep the rumors away until they come from a reliable source, and it’s because of Deadline that the following story made its way to UTG’s front page.

According to sources, Quentin Tarantino has begun sharing a script for his next project with select actors around tinseltown. Details are entirely unconfirmed, but word is that the feature will be a western and that it may be titled The Hateful Eight. No additional information regarding the project is available at this time.

As for the actors possibly reading The Hateful Eight right now, Deadline claims to have been told that Tarantino has approached Christoph Waltz and Bruce Dern. Waltz is no shocker, of course, as he has starred in both Inglourious Basterds and Django Unchained, but Dern is slightly more exciting. His career is overdue for a turn in something hip, and I think the wild, wild west is the perfect setting for him. He can currently be seen commanding the screen opposite Will Forte in Alexander Payne’s Nebraska.
