Rehearsals are underway for a film that was almost not to be, The Hateful Eight.
After The Hateful Eight script leaked, writer-director Quentin Tarantino decided he would write something else and scrapped the project. Then, he held a live reading and the response was massive… so he (thankfully) changed his mind.
Well, The Hateful Eight cast was recently announced by Tarantino, and they’ve been rehearsing. One of the film’s stars, Samuel L. Jackson, even Tweeted a couple of photos from the rehearsal and it looks like everyone’s present.
Yup, that’s Tarantino giving direction in the background, with Michael Madsen, Bruce Dern and Jennifer Jason Leigh listening intently.
Also in this shot is Tim Roth (who with Madsen are reuniting with Tarantino) and Demian Bichir, who is making his Tarantino debut!
The Hateful Eight opens in late 2015 and will head off to Colorado to start shooting in December.
