Quentin Tarantino stopt met nieuwe film The Hateful Eight

Quentin Tarantino kondigde recentelijk aan dat zijn volgende project The Hateful Eight zal gaan heten. Nu heeft de regisseur besloten het project voor onbepaalde tijd stop te zetten. Het script schijnt te zijn gelekt, nadat hij het aan een klein aantal acteurs heeft gegeven. Tarantino liet weten:

“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.”

Hij vervolgt:

“I gave it to one of the producers on Django Unchained, Reggie Hudlin, and he let an agent come to his house and read it. That’s a betrayal, but not crippling because the agent didn’t end up with the script. There is an ugly maliciousness to the rest of it. I gave it to three actors: Michael Madsen, Bruce Dern, Tim Roth. The one I know didn’t do this is Tim Roth. One of the others let their agent read it, and that agent has now passed it on to everyone in Hollywood. I don’t know how these fucking agents work, but I’m not making this next. I’m going to publish it, and that’s it for now. 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. I’ll move on to the next thing. I’ve got 10 more where that came from.”

Desondanks koestert Tarantino geen wraakgevoelens tegen Dern.
