With Quentin Tarantino's script for his proposed, 70mm western "The Hateful Eight" now circulating, with the leak of his first draft causing the director to scrap the project, could he already be working on his next movie? Indeed, he did tell Deadline he was plowing ahead on another movie. “The idea was, I was going to write two scripts,” Tarantino said. “I wasn’t going to shoot the Western until next winter, and I have been full of piss and vinegar about the other one. So now I’ll do that one.” And while he wouldn't spill what that movie was all about, rumors are already percolating about what it is.

Quentin Tarantino,
It took just over a week for "The Hateful Eight" to go from Quentin Tarantino's next project to another addition to the growing list of his Lost, Unmade & Possible Future Films. Indeed, the director hasn't ruled out eventually making the movie, after angrily yanking it off the table, following the script getting leaked to Hollywood insiders. And as expected, details about screenplay for "The Hateful Eight" have already emerged, and as always, Tarantino had some big plans for the movie.

While Hollywood tends to gripe about piracy and the theft of intellectual property, the dirty secret that no one wants to talk about is that sometimes, people in the industry are the perpetrators of this sort of thing. Indeed, one only has to do a couple Google searches to find Academy screeners for this year's films available if you look (not so) hard enough. And now, Quentin Tarantino has fallen victim to slippery fingers, and with great vengeance and furious anger, has shelved his next film.

25 Movies That Defined The Sundance Film Festival
As you might have noticed from the wall-to-wall level of coverage over the last week or so, the Sundance Film Festival has grown considerably from its humble beginnings back in 1978, when it was inaugurated as the Utah/US Film Festival and had a remit to showcase exclusively American-made independent films, and to promote filmmaking in the region. Robert Redford's involvement as a guiding patron led to its name change in 1981, from which point on it expanded gradually, until a kind of Cambrian explosion occurred with the arrival of "sex lies & videotape " 25 years ago this, a film that, with only a touch of hyperbole, could be said to have remade the festival into the modern titan it is today.

For the the months that followed "Django Unchained," filmmaker Quentin Tarantino had been hinting he was hoping to direct a Western next. And then at the end of the year on Jay Leno, he spelled it out in no uncertain terms; he was making a Western next, but it wasn't going to be a sequel to "Django Unchained," or "Killer Crow," the prequel to "Inglourious Basterds," he'd been discussing in several interviews after his slavery epic was done. Well, he kept his promise. And when QT puts his mind to it, he evidently spits out a script quick.

Quentin Tarantino Kill Bill Vol. 1
Quentin Tarantino is a man who loves to talk, especially about his future projects. Longtime fans may remember him name-checking “Inglourious Basterds” years before cameras started rolling or talking up the possibility of a Vega Brothers team-up, but the holy grail for fans, recently, has been “Kill Bill 3.”

Even though he doesn't have a movie to promote, Quentin Tarantino has been out and about this fall. He hit a number of film festivals including Busan, Lumiere and A.F.I., pontificated on a number of movies (naming Israeli thriller "Big Bad Wolf" as one of year's best, criticizing "The Lone Ranger" and dropping his own (early) top ten of 2013) and last night, he went into Thanksgiving with a stop on "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno" where he was promoting the recently published "Django Unchained" graphic novel. And the ever chatty helmer had some news to share.

Nebraska
The journey that started this past spring at the Cannes Film Festival capped off with an appearance last night at AFI Film Festival as Alexander Payne's "Nebraska" gears up to start rolling out in theaters soon. And in both the south of France and in sunny California, it was Bruce Dern who was the center of attention. He took home Best Actor on the Croisette and before the screening of the film last night, AFI Fest showed a special tribute reel to the man, with one very special guest introducing it.

Big Bad Wolves
After spending 2012 basking in the critical and commercial glow of "Django Unchained," it looks like Quentin Tarantino is ready to give back some of that love this year. He's already dropped his Top Ten Films Of 2013 (So Far)—with a slightly altered version also surfacing—and took the time to compare "Snowpiercer" director Bong Joon-ho to Steven Spielberg. And Tarantino is not done yet dishing about the accolades.
