Kurt Russell Says HATEFUL EIGHT Shoots Next Year

Quentin Tarantino's scrapped script has been unscrapped. 

When the script for the next Quentin Tarantino movie, The Hateful Eight, leaked the director decided not to make the film at all. But over time he has softened; first there was a live read of the script at LACMA and then came rumors that the movie would be happening after all. Those rumors just got a lot more juice as Kurt Russell, appearing on a morning TV show, said he's going to be in the film next year. 

“I’ve got a Tarantino project called The Hateful Eight that looks like it may go somewhere around the beginning of the year,” he told Fox's Good Day Philly. In the video he seems pretty excited about it, and seems pretty happy about life in general which is good because he's Kurt Russell and we all want him to be happy.

And it would make us happy if The Hateful Eight actually got made. Hopefully the delay - and the resulting extra drafts - really turn the film into something special. I'm already getting Tarantino withdrawl.
