People are excited to hear that Tarantino will be writing and directing a new western called The Hateful Eight. With the critical and financial success of Django Unchained it is not a surprise that his next film would be another western. Django Uncahined is Tarantino’s highest grossing film to date. It may be premature to talk about this as it may fall through but I hope it doesn’t. Django Unchained was a really great film and I think that Tarantino will be able to deliver another great film. I do also think that this could allow Tarantino to make improvements. Django Unchained did have Taratino’s style stamped all over it but I would like to see him go a bit easier on his style and make a western that is more conventional. We’ll just have to wait and see what happens though.
Nothing in this project is a fact yet but the early rumors state that Christoph Waltz and Bruce Dern will star in the film having roles written specifically for them. The rumors also speculate that the film will shoot this summer. People are disappointed that Tarantino will not be working on Kill Bill Volume 3, however I would rather see an original film rather than a sequel to a film series that I felt had a definitive ending. The title of the film also suggests that it is a reference to the 60s film The Magnificent Seven.
I assume the film will come out in 2015 but we may have to wait a bit longer as the film currently has no studio or distributor backing it. I also hope that this film will see Tarantino reunite with Tim Roth who he has collaborated with before but not in recent years.
