Quentin Tarantino, that tease, revealed at Comic Con he is indeed moving forward with The Hateful Eight, despite suggesting he would abandon the film after the script leaked early this year.
According to Deadline, Tarantino made the confirmation after being prodded by a fan’s question at his Django/Zorro crossover comic panel.
In an earlier report, Deadline suggested QT was lining up stars and producers for an early 2015 filming start.
He recently held a live reading of the script with actors Samuel L. Jackson, Tim Roth, Kurt Russell, Bruce Dern, Walton Goggins, Zoe Bell, Amber Tamblyn, James Remar, Michael Madsen, James Parks, and Denis Menochet.
Bell confirmed to us she would want to be affiliated with the movie, so maybe we’ll get to see that exact line up living out Tarantino’s upcoming western.
Also in the works: an extended cut of the Kill Bill saga with more animated sequences. Surely one Con soon he’ll spill on Kill Bill Vol. 3.
