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.

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.

Movie fans rejoiced when Quentin Tarantino revealed that his next project would be a western called 'The Hateful Eight.' But that didn't last long -- the script leaked, there was a major brouhaha (and the promise of legal action), and Tarantino said that the film wouldn't be made. And then Tarantino announced a one-time-only live reading of the script ... and then, at the live reading, he announced that the film was back in the works and that he was hard at work on draft two.
Quentin Tarantino famously shelved his upcoming project 'The Hateful Eight' after an early draft of the script leaked online (he would later sue the web site Gawker for publishing a download link). Fans were left disappointed knowing that an upcoming Tarantino film would never come to fruition, but now they take solace in knowing that Tarantino will direct 'The Hateful Eight' after all!... As part of a one-night-only live reading in Los Angeles.
Just last month, Robert Rodriguez revved up his new TV network, El Rey, which features a whole lot of badass programming curated by Rodriguez and his team. This Sunday, March 9, the network will be hosting a pretty sweet double feature of Quentin Tarantino's 'Reservoir Dogs' and Rodriguez's debut film, 'El Mariachi.' To celebrate this awesome night of programming, we have the exclusive debut of El Rey's poster for the event, created by artist Kurt Volk.
'The Hateful Eight' may be the Quentin Tarantino movie that never was. The writer/director, upset about the script leaking online, decided to put a stop to the upcoming western before it ever really began. While we may never actually see the movie, the script is online and now another big piece of the movie is here to help you imagine a Tarantino movie in your head: the soundtrack.
When the script for his upcoming project, 'The Hateful Eight,' leaked, an angry and defiant Quentin Tarantino said he was completely dropping the project. "I have no desire to make it. I’m done.

Well, time may truly heal all wounds as just a few weeks later comes word that Tarantino may be rethinking that plan and has already reached out to one of his most frequent collaborators about starring in the film.
If you were bummed before about Quentin Tarantino canceling plans to direct his script 'The Hateful Eight' after a script leak, the latest news may make you even more depressed.
