Multi-awarded director Quentin Tarantino has scrapped his most recent film project called “The Hateful Eight,” after it was apparently leaked to some agents in Hollywood.
‘Very, very depressed’
In his interview with the film website Deadline, the director said he only gave copies of the script to six people, but later on he realized that the script was leaked to agents as his office started getting calls from different agents pitching some actors for the roles.
Tarantino said he was “very, very depressed” because of the incident.
The 50-year-old filmmaker said he no longer wants to continue with the film, but will publish the concept as a book instead, although he might revisit the idea of filming it a few years after.
Tarantino said he gave the script to three actors, one of which was Tim Roth, who played a role in his first two films: “Pulp Fiction” and “Reservoir Dogs.”
“I’ll publish it. I’m done. I’ll move on to the next thing,” said the Oscar-winning director, although he did admit that he “could totally change (his) mind.”
“If the muse calls me later to do it, we’ll do it,” Tarantino said.
