The last word on the street about The Hateful Eight, Quentin Tarantino's highly anticipated Western, was the dust-up between the famous Pulp Fiction director and a website famous for pulp--Gawker. Tarantino accused Gawker Media of copyright infringement when it published a leaked Hateful Eight script back in January.
But there was more--and better--news for Tarantino fans this weekend at Comic Com: Tarantino is going to make the movie. After the Gawker trouble over the winter, Tarantino seemed as if he would abandon the project--or at least put it on the back burner. Then word came this spring that the meticulous director was working on a new script. (The lawsuit about the earlier one has been dropped, BTW.) Variety reports that in answering a fan's question about the movie, Tarantino paused before replying that, “Yeah — We’re going to be doing ‘The Hateful Eight.’” It's going to be one of the greatest casts ever assembled--you just know it.
