Quentin Tarantino’s Next Is The Hateful Eight, A Western With Parts For Bruce Dern And Christoph Waltz

Premiere of HBO's "Big Love" - ArrivalsAccording to Deadline, Quentin Tarantino is currently undergoing the process of showing his latest script, a western believed to be called The Hateful Eight, to actors he wants to play parts. His goal, apparently, is to get feedback from the actors and then hone the screenplay on the basis of their notes.

There’s a lot of note giving in Hollywood, often by executives who – frankly – have limited credentials as screenwriters. Tarantino’s strategy, I’d argue, is likely to be a far more productive one.

Two actors said to be on the director’s radar are Christoph Waltz, which probably surprises nobody, and Bruce Dern, which definitely be a surprise to anybody, exactly, as he’s bloody great and has been for some fifty years. As Nebraska just demonstrated, Dern has lost nothing at all in five decades in command of his craft.

Now the story has been couched in these terms, I expect to read any number interviews with the two actors in which they’re asked what feedback they gave on the script, running from whenever they next get journalisted, through to the film’s release and beyond.

We’re about a year out from the last Tarantino movie and there’s already motion on the next, even a title. This seems a lot like continued momentum. It’s not the Tarantino of the nineties and oughts, but I like it.

And I like that title, too. I hope it’s real.
