Five things we learned this week – January 24th 2014


1) Tarantino not going back west

After the success of Django Unchained Quentin had said how he would love to do another western but it may now be some time until we see any such film. This week it was revealed that the first draft of his screenplay for The Hateful Eight had been leaked after he showed it to only six people, including actors Tim Roth, Bruce Dern and Micheal Madsen.

Talking with Mike Fleming of Deadline, it’s clear Tarantino more so feels betrayed than angry about the fact the script is out there. He enjoys fans reading his scripts and closely examining them just not this early in the process. He may publish the screenplay and if so certainly won’t touch it for another few years. His next project is certain to be a much closer guarded secret.
