In January, Quentin Tarantino’s The Hateful Eight was leaked online. Following that incident, Tarantino said that he had no desire to move forward with the film and was not going to make it. At a recent reading of the script Saturday during the Film Independent's session in the Ace Hotel in downtown Los Angeles, Tarantino announced that he was working on a second draft of the script and a third is to come soon.
Variety reported that the famous director also explained that he would be rewriting the final chapter of the script along with a fifth chapter and that this was the only time fans would ever see, or hear, this version of the story.
Reading The Hateful Eight were some "Tarantino superstars," all actors from his previous films, including Samuel L. Jackson, Kurt Russell, Walton Goggins and Tim Roth. They all assumed major character roles from the script, Deadline reported.
Tarantino warned the crowd that as a group, they had not been rehearsing for as long as a full "superstar" cast. “We’ve been rehearsing for the last three days. We’re OK, we’re not bad,” he said.
