Hateful Eight

Hateful Eight

Quentin Tarantino‘s righteous fury at those who leaked The Hateful Eight‘s screenplay has abated. The film is no longer spite-cancelled, and it may start shooting as early as early next year (according to /Film, who heard the news on Fox 59, who in turn heard it from Kurt Russell). Tarantino’s heart has swelled so profusely that not only is he going to give us The Hateful Eight, he’s going to give us a trailer next week. /Film, once again, has the scoop, having found mention of a Hateful Eight trailer on the Alberta Film Ratings board, and then also hearing from people working in local multiplexes, who’ve been notified that a minute and 40 seconds of Hateful Eight will run before Sin City: A Dame to Kill For. Then, Deadline wrapped everything up with their own confirmation. However, there is a caveat- in order to see that fateful Hateful Eight tease, you’ve got to pay to see Sin City in theaters. No online release, people. Or, for the realists out there, no online release, except for a shaky phone recording where some guy’s head is blocking half the shot, people.

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.
