@MovieUnchainedIt was a tragedy to cinephiles and film fans everywhere when Quentin Tarantino, one of the undisputed masters of cinema, announced that after his script for a project entitled The Hateful Eight was leaked, he was shelving that project, perhaps publishing it as a book instead. But with a recent reading of the script in Los Angeles (with a cast that included frequent Tarantino collaborators such as Samuel L. Jackson, Kurt Russell, Tim Roth, Michael Madsen, Bruce Dern and James Parks), he announced that the project is no longer dead, and that he intends to make it, albeit differently than the leaked script would suggest, as he is planning to rewrite the ending. The film follows Tarantino's rabid adoration of genre films (how many other filmmakers can say they have made a heist film, a blaxploitation picture, two kung-fu movies, a grindhouse horror, a war film and two westerns), and would be set around the time of the civil war and take place in exclusively three locations; a stagecoach, a stable and a haberdashery, making this an impressive change in Tarantino's style, as he usually makes use of many different locations in his films. What is even more exciting is that Tarantino is shooting the film in 70mm, like most westerns. Very few films are filmed in this way, with one of the last mainstream films to do so was The Master in 2012, and before that, it started phasing out in the 1970s. The Hateful Eight doesn't have a release date; it doesn't even have a film schedule just yet. But it doesn't matter how long Tarantino takes to make the film, if there is one director who puts an insane amount of effort into his films, and produces entertainment of the highest possible quality, it is Quentin Tarantino. The initial schedule was for the film to begin production in the Winter of 2015, and if Tarantino is sticking to this timetable, we can expect a 2016 release.
