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.

A rare 8-minute video of Quentin Tarantino and Steve Buscemi in 1991 rehearsing for 'Reservoir Dogs' has popped up online and gives us some insight as to how film history was made.
Here's some pretty big news for Golden Globes weekend: Quentin Tarantino has apparently finished the script for his upcoming western film, which is reportedly titled 'The Hateful Eight,' and, if the rumors are true, he's already eyeing actors for two of the lead roles: Christoph Waltz (which would make sense), and Bruce Dern (which would make us so, so happy).
Released in 1994, Oliver Stone's 'Natural Born Killers' follows lovers Mickey and Mallory Knox (Woody Harrelson and Juliette Lewis) as they go on a mass-murdering spree, which eventually becomes glorified by the media and a fame-hungry reporter (Robert Downey Jr.). Though it wasn't a hit at the box office, the divisive crime film, which was based on a story by Quentin Tarantino, went on to gain a following and has become regarded by many as a classic. 'Natural Born Killers' celebrates its 20th anniversary this year, so join us as we look back at the cast of the film and see what they're up to now.
Quentin Tarantino's 'Pulp Fiction' was released in 1994 and became an instant classic: the darkly humorous, non-linear narrative follows the stories of various small-time criminals and mobsters (and one very memorable and mysterious briefcase) as their lives intersect in Los Angeles. Tarantino and co-writer Roger Avary won an Oscar for Best Original Screenplay for the film, which was nominated for an additional six statues, including Best Actor for John Travolta -- who experienced a major comeback thanks to Tarantino casting him as lead hitman Vincent Vega. 20 years later, we revisit the cast of the film and see what they're doing now.
In 1997, Quentin Tarantino released 'Jackie Brown.' Based on the novel 'Rum Punch' by Elmore Leonard, the director was inspired by Pam Grier's classic blaxploitation films, so he changed the race and name of the lead character (from Burke to Brown) and cast Grier herself to star. The film follows Jackie, a flight attendant who smuggles money for a black market arms dealer on the side. When Jackie gets busted by the ATF, she goes in for one last cash grab, planning to take the money and run.
With a cast that included Samuel L. Jackson and Michael Keaton, 'Jackie Brown' was hailed by critics and audiences alike, and signified a career comeback for stars like Grier and Robert Forster. Sixteen years later, we revisit the cast of Tarantino's third film and see where they are now.
Quentin Tarantino went on 'The Tonight Show' last night to promote the upcoming hardcover version of the 'Django Unchained' comic books, and while there, Jay Leno asked the million dollar question: what will Quentin's next film be?

In 1996, Robert Rodriguez teamed up with Quentin Tarantino for the vampire horror flick 'From Dusk till Dawn.' Directed by Rodriguez from a script by Tarantino, the film follows two criminal brothers (George Clooney and Tarantino himself) as they hijack an RV containing a former preacher and his two teenagers and seek refuge in a seedy bar south of the border. But there's a catch: this bar is overrun by ancient vampires. 17 years later, we revisit the cast of the film and see what they're up to now.
Quentin Tarantino surprised many earlier this week when he released a list of his favorite movies of the year and on that list, along with Oscar frontrunners like 'Gravity' and 'Blue Jasmine,' was the Razzie frontrunner 'The Lone Ranger.' As we all wondered aloud, "How could this be?," Mr. Tarantino has arrived, as if on cue, to explain exactly how it be, defending his choice of 'The Lone Ranger' as one of the best movies of 2013.
