Though Quentin Tarantino's next project has been on the q.t. and very hush hush, the film now has a working title, Deadline reports: "The Hateful Eight."

Back in November, Tarantino told Jay Leno on "The Tonight Show" that the film, like his last movie "Django Unchained," is a western. But "The Hateful Eight" won't be a sequel to "Django," which won Tarantino his second best original screenplay Oscar in 2013 nearly two decades after he picked up a statuette for "Pulp Fiction" in 1995.

"I had so much fun doing 'Django,' and I love Westerns so much that after I taught myself how to make one, I was like, 'Let me make another one, now that I know what I'm doing,'" Tarantino told Leno.

Tarantino has finished a draft of the screenplay, and word is that he's penned a part for stalwart collaborator Christoph Waltz, who won supporting actor Oscars for both "Inglorious Basterds" and "Django Unchained." Another name floating around is Bruce Dern. Tarantino hopes to begin shooting the film this summer.
