Quentin Tarantino, speaking at Comic-Con 2015, announced Ennio Morricone is composing the score for ‘The Hateful Eight’.
Ennio Morricone is set to write the score for Quentin Tarantino’s The Hateful Eight. He is best known for composing music for a number of Italian (Spaghetti) Westerns including the Dollars Trilogy, The Good, the Bad and the Ugly, and Once Upon a Time in the West. The 86-year-old Italian composer is returning to writing film scores after eight years away but it has been more than forty years since he worked on a Western.

The 65 year old singer has described his two eldest children as being ‘dead’ to him.
Bill Hudson, the father of actors Kate Hudson and Oliver Hudson has said he’s disowned his two famous children following messages they posted online during Father’s Day last weekend. Speaking to the Daily Mail, the 65 year old musician who has five children, says he now considers himself a father of three and wants Kate and Oliver to stop using his last name.
Kate and Oliver Hudson have been ‘disowned’ by their father Bill.
On Father’s Day Oliver had posted a throwback picture of himself and Kate on Twitter with their biological dad Bill and captioned it, ‘Happy Abandonment Day ….. @katehudson.’ Later Kate posted an image of the sibling’s with their mother’s long term partner Kurt Russell, writing ‘Pa, just simply … thank you. Happy Father's Day. I love you to the moon and back.’
The ‘San Andreas’ star is said to be in talks to take on Kurt Russell’s 1986 role.
After dominating the box office at the weekend with San Andreas, Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson is already eyeing his next big screen role which looks set to be in a remake of 80s cult classic, Big Trouble in Little China.
Johnson is currently riding high at the box office with San Andreas.
According to The Wrap, Johnson is already in talks to star in and produce the remake, which will be scripted by X-Men: First Class writers Ashley Miller and Zack Stentz. The film will be produced by 20th Century Fox, who are yet to comment on the rumours.
Following a screenplay leak, cancellation and final confirmation that it would be going into production, 'The Hateful Eight' is filming, and Tarantino has released some set pictures.
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.
For their seventh adventure, the Fast & Furious cast and crew continue to outdo themselves with mind-boggling stunt driving and outrageous action mayhem, this time infusing everything with emotion as a way of honouring late actor Paul Walker. The rip-roaring pace and more internalised drama combine effectively to create a riotous thrill ride that might actually bring a lump to the throat. Even if it's all utterly preposterous, it's solidly entertaining.
Things pick up right where Part 6 left off, with former black-ops killer Deckerd Shaw (Jason Statham, who else?) determined to avenge his fallen brother. As he tracks them down, Dominic and Brian (Vin Diesel and Paul Walker) have reassembled their team (Michelle Rodriguez, Tyrese Gibson and Chris 'Ludacris' Bridges) to take a job with shady government agent Mr Nobody (Kurt Russell). Their target is the even shadier villain Jakanda (Djimon Hounsou), who has kidnapped a genius hacker (Nathalie Emmanuel) to get his hands on her all-seeing gadget. But Shaw is on their trail as they track Jakanda to the mountains of Azerbaijan, and he interrupts their mission there as well as in the deserts of Abu Dhabi and the streets of downtown Los Angeles.
The double-edged premise offers all kinds of opportunity for plot twists, but of course the main point of these movies is to create increasingly insane set-pieces. This time, the film opens with Brian explaining to his young son that cars can't fly, after which director James Wan proves otherwise, flinging our heroes' hot rods into the sky from airplanes, tower blocks and cliff tops. Amazingly, they seem able to steer even in mid-air! But never mind, it looks so painfully cool that there's little do do but sit back and enjoy the chaos, knowing that even though a flashy vehicle is destroyed every minute, there's a newer, more awesome car coming in the next scene.

It Russell is to be believed, Hateful Eight is filming early 2016, which means we'll probably see it in 2016
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.

After having tweaked the movie to allow for Paul Walker's death, Universal have pulled the 'Fast & Furious 7' release date forward by a week.
The release date of the next Fast & Furious movie has been pulled forward by a week from the 10th April to the 3rd April 2015, Universal Pictures has announced. According to THR, the decision was made to allow the action sequel to have "more international playdates."
The movie was originally scheduled for release this summer but actor Paul Walker's tragic death last November meant the filmmakers had to reconfigure some of the scenes he was scheduled to shoot. Walker died in a high speed Californian car crash along with his friend Roger Rodas and was killed instantly on collision with roadside obstacles.
Walker will still be featured in Fast 7 but some of his scenes will have been edited to account for his unfinished filming. He will be seen starring alongside franchise returners Dwayne Johnson, Tyrese Gibson, Vin Diesel, Michelle Rodriguez, and Jordana Brewster.
