After the release of Django Unchained, filmmaker Quentin Tarantino had been trying to direct a western next. And has come up with the prequel of Inglorious Bastards he had been talking about this in many interviews after his slavery views hit the screen.
According to Deadline, his project is finalized and has been titled has “The Hateful Eight.” Or at least a working title. Tarantino has apparently finished a first draft and is handing it off to actors he’d like to appear in the film. Who include Tarantino’s current cast Christoph Waltz, who starred in “Inglorious Basterds” and “Django Unchained” (and won Oscar supporting awards for both), and “Nebraska” star Bruce Dern
During the Cannes “Nebraska” press conference last year Dern ranked Tarantino among the six genius filmmakers he had ever worked with (Hitchcock and Alexander Payne were also some of the directors name checked). Either way, it obviously made an impression on both the actor and filmmaker
From the reports it can be assumed that the script is still in its early stages, when the script is finnaly released its is believed that it will resemble the one mentioned in the reports has his work has gone viral over the web.
Tarantino’s flirted with Westerns elements in the “Kill Bill” films and arguably finally made one with “Django Unchained,” but the director’s always seen the latter as “Southern,” a distinction in the genre he likes to make, so perhaps “The Hateful Eight” will be his first pure Western. But then again, Tarantino has stated in the past that he “hates John Ford.” So, we’ll have to wait and see.
“I had so much fun doing Django, and I love Westerns so much that after I taught myself how to make one, it’s like ‘OK! Let me make another one now that I know what I’m doing,’ ” Tarantino told Leno in November. Tarantino also once tried to adapt Elmore Leonard’s Western “40 Lashes Less One,”
