Who Can We Trust? Is 'Hateful Eight' Really Filming Early Next Year?

Quentin Tarantino’s movie, Hateful Eight, has certainly been subject to the incessant churning of the rumor mill, and now there’s another – albeit from a solid source. Kurt Russell, who worked with Tarantino on one half of his grindhouse production, Death Proof, has told Fox news: "I've got a Tarantino project called The Hateful Eight that looks like it may go somewhere around the beginning of the year."

But can we trust this? Tarantino has already made his feelings clear towards whoever leaked the script in the first place, and that could have been any of the four actors he initially showed it to. Since then, Samuel L Jackson, Bruce Dern, Michael Madsen, Kurt Russell, James Remar, Amber Tamblyn, Walton Goggins, Zoe Bell and Tim Roth have all been invited to read it through, and it’s thought that same cast will appear in the final movie.

The Hateful Eight follows "the steadily ratcheting tension that develops after a blizzard diverts a stagecoach from its route, and traps a pitiless and mistrustful group which includes a competing pair of bounty hunters, a renegade Confederate soldier, and a female prisoner in a saloon in the middle of nowhere".

This news would have seemed highly improbably only a few months ago, when Tarantino was convinced he’d throw the script out and never make the movie following Gawker’s leak. Incensed, the legendary director even took the website to court, twice, returning after the presiding judge advised him to come back with a lawful reason to litigate.

In a statement via his lawyer, Tarantino said: “Gawker Media has made a business of predatory journalism, violating people’s rights to make a buck. This time they went too far. Rather than merely publishing a news story reporting that Plaintiff’s screenplay may have been circulating in Hollywood without his permission, Gawker Media crossed the journalistic line by promoting itself to the public as the first source to read the entire screenplay illegally.”
