With his lawsuit against Gawker over their linking to his leaked script "The Hateful Eight" ongoing (a trial date is set for January 27, 2015) and the status of whether or not this will actually be his next movie or not up in the air (he said it was shelved, but later rumors surfaced he was still rewriting it), Quentin Tarantino has decided to roll out the western in its first, legal airing. And you better hope you have a couple hundreds bucks to spare and can make it to Los Angeles.

Quentin Tarantino,

With his lawsuit against Gawker over their linking to his leaked script "The Hateful Eight" ongoing (a trial date is set for January 27, 2015) and the status of whether or not this will actually be his next movie or not up in the air (he said it was shelved, but later rumors surfaced he was still rewriting it), Quentin Tarantino has decided to roll out the western in its first, legal airing. And you better hope you have a couple hundreds bucks to spare and can make it to Los Angeles.

Film Independent at LACMA has announced that Tarantino will cast and direct a live read of the script for one night only on Thursday, April 24th. Tarantino will set the mood with stage directions and other cues, with a group of yet-to-be-announced actors filling out the roles. Will any of the folks like Bruce Dern, Christoph Waltz and Tim Roth, rumored for parts in the movie, show up? Here's a new synopsis, revealed in the press release:

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.

Tickets will set you back $200 and you can click here for the details. And be sure to read our feature, Black Night, White Hell: A Look At Quentin Tarantino’s 'The Hateful Eight' Western for more about the unmade movie.
