Quentin Tarantino, Christopher Nolan, Judd Apatow & J.J. Abrams Team Up To Save Film Stock
A couple of years ago, things were looking grim for Kodak. The legendary film company couldn't keep up with the digital age, and were on the brink of bankruptcy, but managed to bounce back last fall. While the company promised to be more contemporary in their approach going forward, they also said that film stock was part of their future as well. And a bunch of filmmakers teamed up to make sure the industry ensures that in an increasingly digital age, there is still room for good, old fashioned physical film stock.

Could it really be true? Of the many projects Quentin Tarantino keeps up in the air, the one that excites and frustrates fans in equal measure is "Kill Bill: The Whole Bloody Affair." As the title suggests, it's a longer cut of the director's two-part martial arts/vengeance epic, the most notable inclusion being a 30 minute anime sequence. Way, way back in 2011, 'The Whole Bloody Affair' screened at the New Beverly... and that was the last anyone heard about it.

Even before a frame has been shot, Quentin Tarantino's "The Hateful Eight" has had quite the life. Announced last year as his next project, it wasn't long after when an early draft of the script leaked, and he furiously decided to can the movie. But almost just as swiftly, he changed his mind and continued to develop the script, and then earlier this spring, he staged a starry live reading of what he had on the page so far (read our review of the event). And basically, the chatter was that Tarantino was going to ultimately direct "The Hateful Eight," and soon, with Kurt Russell (who participated in the live read) recently suggesting that cameras would roll in early 2015. And while Tarantino didn't give an exact date, he's now confirmed this film is next on his slate.

Clearly, Quentin Tarantino isn't done with the world of "Django Unchained." The talkative director turned heads last month when he revealed at the Cannes Film Festival he was considering releasing his western with new footage in a 4-hour miniseries cut for TV. But TV isn't the only medium where Tarantino wants to bring Django.

Tarantino, Pulp Fiction
By now you’ve probably heard about Quentin Tarantino’s press conference from Cannes. He’s not down with digital projection, he’s starting to heal over the “knife in the back” that was casting agents helping leak his “Hateful Eight” screenplay, which he still might make, and he’s considering making a 4-hour version of “Django Unchained” for cable (the irony that he called digital the death of cinema and announced a potential project for the small screen on the same day evidently lost on him).

Quentin Tarantino, Django Unchained
It was twenty years ago this week when "Pulp Fiction" premiered at the Cannes Film Festival, won the Palme d'Or and spawned a generation of copycat films. And to celebrate the anniversary, Tarantino is back on the Croisette where the film will have a special screening tonight, and at a press conference this morning, the talkative filmmaker revealed that he actually has a lot more from his last film, "Django Unchained," to share with the world.

The lineup includes films by Alfred Hitchcock, Frank Capra, Jean Renoir, Wim Wenders, Francois Truffaut, Krzysztof Kieślowski and more, but one filmmaker in particular will get a boost by Quentin Tarantino.

Pulp Fiction
Finding a role for him in five of his movies to date, the partnership between director Quentin Tarantino and Samuel L. Jackson has been steady over the years, with the actor taking roles both big and small. Whenever QT has called, Jackson has pretty much been there. So who better for Tarantino to ring up than his old pal when it's time to do a live read of his leaked script, "The Hateful Eight"?
