Quentin Tarantino was super pissed when his screenplay for The Hateful Eight leaked, and has even gone so far as to sue Gawker for sharing a link to the script. He's vowed not to produce the movie, but, thankfully, it looks like he's not totally finished with the project: Apparently, he's hosting a live-read of the project in Los Angeles.
This is really cool, without a doubt. Who wouldn't wanna see a live read of a Tarantino film? Unfortunately, it's not as easy as waiting in line and paying a cover fee, though: The event is being held by Film Independent at LACMA, and tickets are $200. You can learn more about the event here.
Here's a new synopsis of the film's plot:
The Hateful Eight follows the steadily ratcheting tension that develops after a blizzard diverts a stagecoach from its route, and traps a pitiless and mistrustful group which includes a competing pair of bounty hunters, a renegade Confederate soldier, and a female prisoner in a saloon in the middle of nowhere.
Anyone willing to drop that much cash and attend?
