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.
Did you know 'Kill Bill Vol. 1' has the least amount of F-bombs of any Quentin Tarantino movie? And, that it was the first of Tarantino's movies to have less than 100 "f---s"? This is just one of the juicy bits of information packed into the latest episode of You Think You Know Movies, which focuses on Quentin Tarantino's martial arts revenge epic 'Kill Bill'.
In what is probably the best news since you woke up this morning and realized you were still alive, Quentin Tarantino has his eyes on Jennifer Lawrence to join 'The Hateful Eight' -- his previously aborted but once again in the works new Western, which recently debuted its first teaser trailer in front of 'Sin City: A Dame to Kill For.'
While 'The Hateful Eight' doesn't even begin filming until early next year (headed for a December 2015 release date), we got word last week that the first trailer would be attached to prints of 'Sin City: A Dame to Kill For' in theaters this week. Which is cool! But, we also got word that the trailer wouldn't be appearing online. That's not so cool. If you can't wait until Friday for a sneak peek at Quentin Tarantino's next film, don't worry, it's popped up online anyway and you can watch it right now.
We got to see the first 'Hateful Eight' poster well before production even began on this latest effort from Quentin Tarantino, and now it looks like the first trailer will follow suit in just a few days time. So, how can you be the first to see it?
Quentin Tarantino just officially confirmed this past weekend at Comic-Con that he would, in fact, be filming 'The Hateful Eight' in early 2015. Here we are, just a few days later, and we already have the first 'Hateful Eight' poster, confirming that the project will be shot in "Super CinemaScope."
Today, an announcement that we never thought would ever happen came when Dynamite Comics revealed their plans to publish a series that will see the swashbuckling Mexican hero Zorro team up with Django, the slave-turned-bounty-hunter from Quentin Tarantino's 'Django Unchained.' But especially interesting is that Tarantino himself will actually have a hand in 'Django/Zorro,' co-plotting it with writer Matt Wagner.
It was 20 years ago that 'Pulp Fiction' hit theaters and changed the landscape of modern cinema. It also launched the career of Samuel L. Jackson, who has gone on to become one of the highest-grossing actors of all-time. Despite his successes and the many roles he's had since then, Jackson can still recite the famous "Ezekiel 25:17" speech from 'Pulp Fiction' from memory.
Much ado was made of Quentin Tarantino's decision to abruptly put 'The Hateful Eight' on hold after an early draft of the script leaked online earlier this year. But, time truly heals all wounds and after a successful stage reading of his script, Tarantino has decided to move with 'The Hateful Eight' as his next project with shooting set to begin this November in Wyoming.
While we're still not sure what Quentin Tarantino's next film will be, the director was at the Cannes Film Festival and revealed he's looking to revisit one of his previous films. The director told an audience at a press conference celebrating the 20th anniversary of the Cannes premiere of 'Pulp Fiction' that he's got about 90 minutes of unseen footage from 'Django Unchained' that he would like to adapt into a 4-hour/4-part cable miniseries.
