Quentin Tarantino has said multiple times that he’s going to stop making films when he reached the number ten. Well, if that’s true he’s got two more in him. He’s been rambling about wanting to do another Western, as of late. And according to Deadline, he’s finished the screenplay for it. The title is The Hateful 8.
Tarantino has expounded his love for films like The Dirty Dozen and The Magnificent Seven on numerous occasions. It makes sense that he’s employing those influences here.
Rumor has it that an early draft of the script has been sent to Christoph Waltz and Bruce Dern. Obviously, there’ll be other actors involved but those are the two that have purportedly received scripts.
As always, I’m interested to see what Tarantino does this time around. Especially since he just made a western. What new tricks does he have up his sleeve? What was so enticing an idea to drive him back to the genre he had just visited?
Only time will tell.
