Unfortunatley for the rest of us, Quentin Tarantino’s western script ‘The Hateful Eight’ will never be produced. But, if you’re interested in seeing a live reading of the script you’ll be able to at the LACMA Film Independent program. The program looks like it’s going to be really, really cool. Check out the official synopsis below. And if you’re interested in tickets click HERE.
Academy Award®–winning writer/director Quentin Tarantino casts and directs the debut of his original screenplay The Hateful Eight (the filmmaker’s own, unmade script), for a special night of entertainment for Film Independent at LACMA program. Tarantino made headlines when he decided to shut down production of the project after the script was leaked without his approval.
The Hateful Eight follows the steadily ratcheting tension that develops after a blizzard diverts a stagecoach from its route and traps a pitiless and mistrustful group comprised of a competing pair of bounty hunters, a renegade Confederate soldier, and a female prisoner in a saloon in the middle of nowhere.
Tarantino, an equally potent force of nature, reads stage directions and directs a group of actors he selects through material that mixes distinctively etched characters, drama, humor, and violence—the marriage of elements that in the past has defined the phrase “a film by Quentin Tarantino.”
This is a one time–only occasion. This is a premiere event that will not be recorded or live streamed.
