Tarantino Gets Mad and Cancels 'The Hateful Eight' After a Script Leak

Just last week we reported that Quentin Tarantino was sending out scripts of his new film – a Western called The Hateful Eight – to prospective actors. And well, it didn't go so well. 

Despite passing on copies to only six people, the first draft has already leaked to Hollywood agents. In what sounds like a less violent version of Reservoir Dogs, Tarantino is trying to work out who he shouldn’t have trusted.

He revealed that three of the recipients were prospective thesps: Bruce Dern, Michael Madsen and Tim Roth. (For some reason, he claims it definitely wasn’t Tim Roth.) Now the director is getting unwanted offers from agents pitching their clients for specific roles.

Tarantino’s plan now is to publish the screenplay and make something else. It’s an impulsive decision he may reverse, considering it sounds a bit like a petulant act to spite the guilty person. Really, if he wanted to send out a warning, Tarantino should just make himself the lead – and that would be a punishment to everyone.
