Quentin Tarantino

Gawker Media has a message for Quentin Tarantino, and that message is, “You don’t have a legal leg to stand on.” In February we reported on Tarantino’s opening salvo on Gawker, whom he accused of maliciously leaking an early draft of the script for his ensemble Western, Hateful Eight. Via entertainment lawyer Martin Singer, Tarantino filed a lawsuit in U.S. District court, claiming,”Gawker Media has made a business of predatory journalism, violating people’s rights to make a buck. This time they went too far. Rather than merely publishing a news story reporting that Plaintiff’s screenplay may have been circulating in Hollywood without his permission, Gawker Media crossed the journalistic line by promoting itself to the public as the first source to read the entire Screenplay illegally.”



Gawker Media has made an increasing business of, well, putting people’s business front and center on its main page and associated network of blogs. Be it a weird inclination to fight Hulk Hogan in court to post his sex tape on the site, to offering a bounty on Lena Dunham‘s pre-Photoshopped photos for her Vogue shoot on Jezebel, Gawker has increasingly played the part of moustache twirling villain. That noted, nobody knows how to destroy a villain quite like Quentin Tarantino, and he’s out to be the Aldo Raine to their Hans Landa, in the courtroom at least. Tarantino is suing Gawker Media for actively pursuing a leaked copy of his Hateful Eight script, and posting it for readers once a copy was procured. Entertainment attorney Martin Singer flied the lawsuit today in U.S. District court, the language of which is aggressive and guns blazing.



If you want to see Danny Trejo cutting people into pieces for revenge, Sony might just have exactly what you’re looking for.
