Quentin Tarantino Putting Script for Western on Hold After It Leaks

Says he only shared it with six people


If you're a Quentin Tarantino fan, you'll hate the following news: "The Hateful Eight" is on indefinite hold.

The "Django Unchained" filmmaker was planning on directing another new Western titled "The Hateful Eight" as his next film, with actors like Bruce Dern and Christoph Waltz reportedly up for roles. But those days are over, at least for now. In an interview with Deadline, Tarantino reveals that the script for "Hateful Eight" leaked, after he had circulated it to no more than "six people." Tarantino went so far as to identify the six: actors Bruce Dern, Tim Roth, Michael Madsen, and their agents.

"The one I know didn't do this is Tim Roth," said Tarantino. "One of the others let their agent read it, and that agent has now passed it on to everyone in Hollywood. I don't know how these f—ing agents work, but I'm not making this next. I'm going to publish it, and that's it for now. 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."
