Quentin Tarantino has reportedly completed the script for his upcoming western, titled “The Hateful 8”.
The filmmaker has a thing for the western genre and spoke about the desire to make another when he was done with “Django Unchained”, saying, “I haven’t told anyone this publicly, but I will say the genre: It’s a western. I had so much fun doing Django, and I love westerns so much that after I taught myself how to make one, it’s like ‘OK! Let me make another one now that I know what I’m doing.’”
There’s happy news for fans of his previous films, as Christoph Waltz has reportedly been promised a role in the movie. As terrifying as he was in the role of Hans Landa (“Inglorious Basterds”), he was equally charming as a German bounty hunter in “Django”, proving he can bring whatever is needed to the role in the moment.
Also in talks for the film is veteran actor Bruce Dern, who was nominated for a Golden Globe this year for “Nebraska”. Though nothing has been confirmed yet, the web is buzzing today about the project.
