Scratch that – make it the hateful ONE. Tarantino is not happy that his script for his next project, The Hateful Eight leaked. Here’s what he had to say about an agent that may be the ultimate villain in this story.
That’s a betrayal, but not crippling because the agent didn’t end up with the script. There is an ugly maliciousness to the rest of it. I gave it to three actors: Michael Madsen, Bruce Dern, Tim Roth. The one I know didn’t do this is Tim Roth. One of the others let their agent read it and that agent has now passed it on to everyone in Hollywood. I don’t know how these fucking agents work, but I’m not making this next. I’m going to publish it, 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 ten more where that came from.
So fans – we had fun dreaming up his Hateful Eight cast with you (see below) but for now, that dream is over. Nothing against the incredible Dern, Roth and Madsen but the top eight actors fans wanted in his next flick were Christoph Walz, Samuel L. Jackson, Uma Thurman, Robert De Niro, Harvey Keitel, Bruce Willis, Clint Eastwood and Bryan Cranston. Think about, QT.
When the script is published, we’ll let you know.

Quentin Tarantino has just announced his next film will indeed be a western, will likely star Bruce Dern and two-time Oscar winner, Christoph Waltz and will be called, The Hateful Eight. Sounds like production starts this summer so casting will be on the minds of every Tarantino fan.
How about we throw out some suggestions? Although we don’t have the storyline or character specs, it’s probable he’s drawing from 60′s western, The Magnificent Seven and Akira Kurosawa’s Seven Samurai. So let’s “help” QT cast this sucker – pick your top eight favorites or write in your own suggestions.
