Quentin Tarantino reporters Deadline, he was ready to postpone work with the film The Hateful Eight. Director plans to publish the first book based on a scenario of westerns , and work on the film wants to go back only a few years later . According to Quentin , one of the copies of the text “Hateful Eight” became public . Tarantino himself learned about it when his agent started getting calls from colleagues who tried to employ actors in a new project director.
“I’m shocked – said Tarantino. – I finished the first version of the script, and sent copies of only six people. Some of them betrayed me . One of those who got the script , was the producer of the film “Django Unchained” Reginald Hadlin . He allowed his agent to come to his house and read my text. This is also a betrayal, but it could not lead to such consequences because its representative was not able to make or copy the script. Need to look further.
I sent a copy of Michael Madsen , Bruce Dern and Tim Roth . I trust only the latter. Remain Madsen and Dern. One of them put my script into the hands of an agent to distribute the text throughout Hollywood. In protest, I will not shoot this film, but publish my script. Even if six people can not be fully trusted , then I have no desire to engage in this project. Start working on another picture , and “Hateful Eight” selling to some big publishing house . ”
Journalists Deadline spoke with a reliable source from the agency representing the interests of Derna . He told that Tarantino has spread his script without watermarks are used to secure the text. Naturally, it is now impossible to know who was the source of the “leak” .
Tarantino , meanwhile , said he will not sit idle. “I ‘m still going to write the next script , because work on westerns scheduled to begin only in 2015 – said Quentin . – I did not send the text “Hateful Eight” Christoph Waltz and Sam L. Jackson. I put it in the hands of only three actors. This agent or Derna or representatives Madsen . I want their names. “
