'Hateful Eight' teaser to play in theaters before 'Sin City 2'

hateful-eight-poster

If you’re making a movie about a rugged 19th-century stagecoach adventure, you’re presumably familiar with the idiom “putting the cart before the horse.” But Quentin Tarantino has always operated outside convention. So it’s oddly appropriate that a teaser trailer for his next movie, The Hateful Eight—a film that doesn’t even go into production until early 2015—will debut in theaters next weekend before screenings of Sin City: A Dame to Kill For.

Though The Weinstein Company—which is distributing both films—declined to comment, sources close to the production tell EW that reports of a theater-only teaser are correct. It’s an ingenious marketing gimmick, since the teaser will not officially be made available online. Hence, some passionate fans might buy tickets to see Sin City just to get a glimpse of what Tarantino is working on next.

But what exactly is there to see in that 100 or so seconds of video? Is it a Hitchcock-style promo, in which the auteur addresses the audience? Is it footage from the star-studded April live-read? Or has Tarantino been filming on the sly, at least a few scenes to warrant a brief tease? Unlikely. Slashfilm reports that viewers can expect a steady stream of title cards—no doubt with some evocative Morricone-esque music. READ FULL STORY

See the poster for Quentin Tarantino's 'Hateful Eight'

Tarantino-Hateful-Eight

Quentin Tarantino’s post-Civil War western, The Hateful Eight, hasn’t even been shot yet, and it’s already been through its fair share of ups and downs. When pages from the script were leaked back in January, Tarantino filed a lawsuit against Gawker and announced that he was no longer going to make the film. Then, in April, Tarantino told a crowd that he was in fact working on a new draft of the script. And most recently, at Comic-Con, Tarantino said that the film was moving forward. Now, we have proof of that.

We’ve got a look at the poster for The Hateful Eight, which will premiere in the upcoming issue of Empire. According to the poster, the film will be shot in 70-millimeter Super Cinemascope and will hit theaters in 2015.

Quentin Tarantino says 'The Hateful Eight' is on the way after all

Quentin Tarantino’s post-Civil War western The Hateful Eight will be a film after all.

After Gawker leaked pages from The Hateful Eight screenplay back in January, Tarantino filed a lawsuit against the media company and said he wouldn’t be turning the script into a movie because of the leak. He later amended that statement though, telling a crowd at a The Hateful Eight reading in April that he was actually working on new draft of the script. And Sunday, he announced at a Comic-Con panel that the movie is a go, Deadline reports.

Quentin Tarantino refiles 'Hateful Eight' lawsuit against Gawker

Quentin Tarantino is not backing down from his Hateful Eight lawsuit against Gawker. Though the filmmaker’s initial claim — that the website illegally promoted a leaked copy of his screenplay — was dismissed in late April, he’s taken advantage of the judge’s ruling and filed an amended complaint. Judge John F. Walter of the U.S. District Court in California determined that Tarantino failed to prove direct infringement and had no case, but left the door slightly ajar for Tarantino, giving his attorneys until May 1 to amend and refile the secondary claim for contributory infringement.

Quentin Tarantino's 'Hateful Eight' lawsuit suffers setback

A U.S. District Court judge in California dealt a blow to Quentin Tarantino’s case against Gawker for promoting a leaked online copy of his script for The Hateful Eight. The Honorable John F. Walter ruled on April 22 that Tarantino “has failed to adequately plead facts establishing direct infringement by a third party or facts that would demonstrate [Gawker] either caused, induced, or materially contributed to the alleged direct infringement of those third party infringers.”

Tarantino had planned to make The Hateful Eight his next film, but the director angrily vowed to abandon the project after a script leaked online in January. Gawker was one of multiple web sites that covered the news and linked to the leaked screenplay, and Tarantino sued the site for copyright infringement and contributory copyright infringement. In court papers courtesy of Deadline, Walter ruled that Tarantino failed to “allege a single act of direct infringement committed by any member of the general public that would support Plaintiff’s claim for contributory infringement. Instead, Plaintiff merely speculates that some direct infringement must have taken place.”

The court left the door slightly open for Tarantino, giving his attorneys until May 1 to amend and refile the secondary claim for contributory infringement against Gawker.

'The Hateful Eight': Quentin Tarantino says he's still working on the film

The Hateful Eight isn’t dead after all.

Quentin Tarantino vowed to kill the project — a Wyoming-set, post-Civil War western — when the script was leaked in January.

“I’m going to publish it [as a book], and that’s it for now,” the director said at the time. “I give [the script] 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.”

But at an all-star reading of The Hateful Eight script on Saturday, the director admitted things had changed. READ FULL STORY

Quentin Tarantino hits pause on 'The Hateful Eight' following script leak

Were you stoked to see Bruce Dern scowl his way through Quentin Tarantino’s upcoming western The Hateful Eight? Bad news, hombre: A source close to Tarantino confirms that after learning that the film’s screenplay has leaked, Tarantino has decided to shelve the project.

The Oscar-winning writer/director tells Deadline that he found out about the leak when his agent, Mike Simpson, started to get calls from other agents who wanted to pitch their own clients for Hateful Eight roles. And though it’s unclear exactly how the script got out, Tarantino has a few ideas: According to that same Deadline interview, Tarantino gave The Hateful Eight‘s script to “six people,” including “three motherf—ing” actors — specifically Michael Madsen, Bruce Dern, and Tim Roth, all of whom have appeared in previous Tarantino projects. He believes that either Madsen or Dern then passed the script to his agent, “and that agent has now passed it on to everyone in Hollywood.”

“I don’t know how these f—ing agents work, but I’m not making this next,” Tarantino continued. “I’m going to publish it [as a book], 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.”

Reps for Roth, Madsen, and Dern haven’t yet responded to EW’s requests for comment.

'Django Unchained' shut down by China on opening day

Django Unchained became Django Unscreened on Thursday as Quentin Tarantino’s violent slave-revenge saga was pulled from Chinese theaters on its opening day, with the importer blaming an unspecified technical problem.

The rare suspension order by China Film Group Corp. was confirmed by theater employees throughout China, and has led to speculation that the Hollywood film could have run afoul of Chinese censors despite weeks of promotion in the country.

Calls to the importer and to China’s regulatory agency, the State Administration of Radio Film and Television, were unanswered. The China office of Sony Pictures, which released the film, refused to comment.

Django Unchained reportedly cut some violent scenes and had already been cleared by China’s rigorous censors, who generally remove violence, sex and politically edgy content. With such an exacting system, suspension on a film’s premiere date is unusual. READ FULL STORY
