‘The Hateful Eight’ Wants Jennifer Lawrence to Join the Team

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.’

The folks over at Collider have reported that Tarantino really wants Jennifer Lawrence to star in ‘The Hateful Eight’ because who doesn’t want Jennifer Lawrence in their movie right now? Lawrence is a smart actress who chooses smart roles, and this could be the smartest move of all if she takes it.

The role Lawrence is being sought for is presumably that of Daisy Domergue, aka “The Prisoner” introduced in the teaser, though we know that the live read version of the script had two female roles: Daisy and Six Horse Judy, who — as Collider notes — were played in that reading by ‘Django Unchained’ stars Amber Tamblyn and Zoe Bell, respectively. But as Tarantino has since done further work on the script, it’s possible that Six Horse Judy has since hit the trail.

So far, the rumored cast for the film has included the likes of Bruce Dern, Kurt Russell, Walton Goggins, Michael Madsen, and Samuel L. Jackson — but given that Tarantino has scrapped the project and started over, some of those names may have changed.

As for Lawrence, she still may have some additional shooting to do on the second part of ‘The Hunger Games: Mockingjay’ next year, and she’s attached to David O. Russell’s ‘Joy,’ the story of the woman who invented the Miracle Mop — that film is set to be released in December 2015. If she joins up with ‘The Hateful Eight,’ that’s going to give her a rather hectic shooting schedule, but we believe if anyone can pull it off, it’s J Law.
