After stops and starts and leaks and reversals, Quentin Tarantino’s 70mm Western ‘The Hateful Eight’ is now, finally, officially, definitively, happening. The Weinstein Company announced today that production has begun in Telluride, Colorado.
Jennifer Jason Leigh
The saga of Quentin Tarantino's 'The Hateful Eight' began with the screenplay leaking online, continued with Tarantino canceling the project and then resurrecting it following a wonderfully received live reading of the script. Now, it climaxes with the official cast and synopsis being revealed. It's been a bumpy road, but there's a new QT film at the end. The journey should be worth the drama and trouble.
Well this is certainly some damn fine news: Jennifer Jason Leigh has been cast as the female lead in Quentin Tarantino's 'The Hateful Eight,' the director's highly-anticipated western project. Leigh was the original choice for the part, and even attended the director's live-reading of the script earlier this year.
The original "based on a true story" horror story, 'The Amityville Horror,' inspired countless adaptations, sequels, prequels and remakes, including the 2005 version starring Ryan Reynolds. Now, after nearly a decade of silence, the franchise is back with the arrival of the 'Amityville: The Awakening' trailer, which moves Jennifer Jason Leigh and a handful of children into that evil haunted house.
HBO's forthcoming Ryan Murphy sexuality series 'Open' already had a notable bit of buzz in casting both 'The Hunger Games' star Wes Bentley and Scott Speedman, but its latest castings should really bring in the 'Fringe.' Former FOX fox Anna Torv has officially joined the HBO pilot alongside actress Jennifer Jason Leigh, but who might the pair play?
