RUMOR: Quentin Tarantino's THE HATEFUL EIGHT Back On With Sam Jackson?
It's starting to sounds like Quentin Tarantino has calmed down about the leak of his HATEFUL EIGHT script. The current rumor circling is that he's pushing forward with script rewrites and is talking with Samuel L. Jackson about taking a lead role. I've been hearing this rumor over the week from different sources, but Jeff over at TheWrap is posting it on his Twitter account, being clear it's only a rumor at this point. I'd love for it to be true, but unless it comes out of the mouth of Quentin, we never really know if it's actually going to happen.
I really hope we end up hearing new names such as Michael K. Williams (in the running for Django) and Kurt Russell (dropped out of Django), being in the mix for the film. No matter what happens, we should expect Christoph Waltz will also have a role.
