Quentin Tarantino’s post-Civil War western The Hateful Eight will go into production after all.
Entertainment Weekly reports that after Gawker leaked pages from The Hateful Eight screenplay back in Janurary, Quentin Tarantino filed a law suit against the company and said he wouldn’t be turning it into a movie because of the leak. He then retracted his statement, telling a crowd at The Hateful Eight reading in April that he was actually working on new draft of the script. Deadline reports that at Comic-Con on Sunday, Tarantino announced that the movie is a go.
When the original screenplay leaked, Tarantino said he had given the script to only six people, including actors. He speculated one of the actor’s agents had spread the script around. “I don’t know how these f–king agents work, but I’m not making this next,” he said in January. “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.”
