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.”

'Broken': Tim Roth talks about the modern tale inspired by 'To Kill a Mockingbird' -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO
What if Atticus and Scout Finch were transported to present-day North London? Based on Daniel Clay’s novel, the film adaptation of Broken takes the inspiration of Harper Lee’s American classic to create a compelling portrait of what Scout, Boo Radley, Atticus, and others might look like in modern times. But it’s a less of a reproduction and more of an homage. First-time feature director Rufus Norris weaves a multi-character narrative set around Skunk, portrayed by novice actress Eloise Laurence, a tomboyish 11-year-old diabetic who lives with her father, brother, and nanny on a street full of secrets and sadness. After witnessing her mentally challenged neighbor get beaten to a pulp by another neighbor due to a false accusation, everything spirals out of control for Skunk and the families living in close quarters.
Veteran stage and screen actor Tim Roth plays the empathetic single father in the film, which is at turns moody, introspective, and earnestly sweet. Broken, which also stars Christopher Nolan favorite Cillian Murphy as Skunk’s troubled teacher and Rory Kinnear as a hot-tempered single father, premiered at the 2012 Cannes Film Festival and is currently playing in limited release in New York and Los Angeles, and is available on Amazon streaming.
