'The Hateful Eight': This Is What A Tarantino Western Looks Like [Pictures]


Quentin Tarantino Samuel L Jackson Kurt Russell Jennifer Jason Leigh Walton Goggins Demian Bichir Tim Roth Michael Madsen Bruce Dern

In case it wasn't clear already, Quentin Tarantino loves movies. He's talked on many occasions about his love for the Spaghetti-Western genre, which has led many people to wonder what a Tarantino-directed Spaghetti-Western would look like. Sure, we had 2012's 'Django Unchained' to give us a brief glimpse at the idea, but that was racial revenge story first, and a Western second. When Tarantino announced his 8th film, 'The Hateful Eight', back in November 2013, fans worldwide jumped for joy.

A jump that may have been a little premature, as the project was cancelled in January 2014, after the script for the highly anticipated picture was leaked online. Tarantino talked about rereleasing the screenplay as a novel, before going back and deciding to give the film one last shot. Production began in January 2015, and now we have some of the first pictures from the set of the new film.

It seems as though Quentin Tarantino's dispute with Gawker hasn't put him off shooting The Hateful Eight, with sources confirming the cameras will roll in November. Insiders tell Showbiz411 that the cast including Samuel L. Jackson, Bruce Dern and Michael Madsen will gather to begin filming in Wyoming.

All three of those actors took part in a recent live-reading of the now infamous "leaked" script, alongside Kurt Russell, James Remar, Amber Tamblyn, Walt Goggins and Zoe Bell. Tarantino's close collaborator Christoph Waltz is not involved in the project, despite his award winning performances in Inglorious Basterds and Django Unchained.

Sitting around with a bunch of friends, eating bad (good) food and trying to guess who’s going to win each category is really fun. But putting some money on the proceedings can add to the fun, and it’s only really worth it if you’re going to win big, big money. Here are some rank outsiders with a chance of winning you some Oscars dough.

Ignore the Bookies, It Could Be Leonardo DiCaprio's Year at the Oscars


Leonardo Dicaprio Matthew Mcconaughey Christian Bale Academy Of Motion Pictures And Sciences Bruce Dern Chiwetel Ejiofor

Let's ignore the bookmakers' predictions for this Sunday's Oscars (March 2, 2014). The people who devise these odds have not seen the movies and base their prices on critics' reviews and public opinion of movies, actors and actresses. The McConnaissance - see Mud, Dallas Buyers Club, Wolf of Wall Street and True Detective - has left bookmakers quaking in their boots and reducing Matthew Mcconaughey's odds of winning best actor to 1/9. It's true that his portrayal of Ron Woodruff is probably the best of his career, though the Texan is way off being considered a nailed certainty on to win the award.

Leonardo DiCaprio Wolf of Wall StreetWill Jonah Hilll [L] Be Congratulating Leonardo Dicaprio [R] At The Oscars?

Consider the alternatives: we've got Chiwetel Ejiofor, the star of the finest movie of the year, Steve McQueen's 12 Years a Slave. History suggests that when a movie gains a momentum at the Oscars, it can rattle through the categories taking awards that it probably had no right to win. Nobody would complain should Ejiofor take best actor on Sunday anyway, though McConaughey and Leonardo DiCaprio could find themselves with little chance if the Academy has voted for 12 Years in the same way it took to The King's Speech and The Artist.

Ahead Of The Oscars, Leonardo DiCaprio Wins Most Googled Male Lead


Leonardo Dicaprio Matthew Mcconaughey Chiwetel Ejiofor Bruce Dern Christian Bale

The Academy Awards are almost upon us and, like any other major event of the past decade, Google Trends are one of the most reliable ways to measure interest in the coming show. This week the trends say one thing: people really care about Leonardo Dicaprio. And by “people”, we mostly mean “North America” since the volume of their Oscar-related searches trumps any other region of the world.

DiCaprio may or may not get the Oscars, but he's already captured people's minds/Google searches.

Winner of Golden Globe Award for Best Actor and Academy Award nominee Leonardo DiCaprio is the most popular nominee in the race for Best Actor for the coming Academy Awards. Matthew Mcconaughey comes in second, but it’s not even a close second. The average amount of Google searches for the past 30 days favors DiCaprio over McConaughey by about 24 points. Christian Bale (nominated for American Hustle) is third, with Bruce Dern and Chiwetel Ejiofor tied for last. Leo also pops up as the most searched term, related to the Academy awards. No other actors make the top ten. Ouch.

Quentin Tarantino v Gawker: Director Suing Over 'Hateful Eight' Leak


Quentin Tarantino Bruce Dern

We told you about Quentin Tarantino’s anger and subsequent decision to can The Hateful Eight over a script leak, but now it looks as though the director has finally settled on a guilty party, believing Gawker to be deserved of litigation as he sues the website, according to The BBC.

Quentin TarantinoQuentin Tarantino isn't a happy director

Tarantino was upset that The Hateful Eight appeared on Gawker’s Defamer blog. "There was nothing newsworthy or journalistic about Gawker Media facilitating and encouraging the public's violation of [Tarantino's] copyright in the screenplay, and its conduct will not shield Gawker Media from liability for their unlawful activity," the lawsuit states.

Bieber Banged Up For Druggy Drag Racing: Justin Bieber has just had the mother of all terrible fortnights. The recalcitrant popstar was under investigation for a vicious egg attack on his neighbor's home by police who discovered drugs upon raiding Bieber's abode. The 'Baby' singer headed snowboarding with his equally rebellious chums with the threat of deportment looming. The singer was then arrested yesterday for DUI and drag racing in Miami.

Bieber showed what a true hard-ass he really was when police stopped him and he immediately snitched on himself, saying he was drunk and high on weed and prescription medication. The 19 year-old was released from a Miami jail an hour after a Miami judge, set a "standard" $2,500 bond Thursday afternoon. The widely-circulated mugshot shows the fallen star grinning ear-to-ear in his orange prison v-neck, prompting Seth Rogen to brand him "a piece of s**t."
