Quentin Tarantino is livid following script leak


This is one angry director.

Following the leak of his script for The Hateful Eight, which was expected to be his next big movie, Tarantino is absolutely livid and has dropped the movie completely.

Saying that he will instead publish the screenplay, Tarantino wants to find out who is responsible for the appearance of the script online and has launched his own investigation:  “I gave it to three motherf**king actors. We met in a place and I put it in their hands. It’s got to be either the agents of Dern or Madsen. Please name names”.

The actors named by Tarantino are James Madsen and Bruce Dern, who is nominated for a 2014 Best Actor Academy Award . The director also said that the script was give to Tim Roth, but he has been ruled out as the source of the leak.

The director’s anger at the betrayal was palpable as he explained he would not make The Hateful Eight his next production: “I give it out to six people, and if I can’t trust them to that degree, then I have no desire to make it. I’ll publish it. I’m done. I’ll move on to the next thing. I’ve got 10 more where that came from.”

Tarantino is one of Hollywood’s favourite directors, having worked on Django Unchained, Pulp Fiction and True Romance to name a few.
