Quentin Tarantino admitted at Cannes that he had "calmed down" over his outrage that his script for western "The Hateful Eight" had been leaked online. So he staged a live read of the 146-page first draft in Los Angeles that went well--we were there. And the filmmaker introduced Sergio Leone's "A Fistful of Dollars" to close the Cannes Film Festival, which was also celebrating the 20th anniversary of "Pulp Fiction," which won the Palme d'Or. It's the prize he treasures the most, he admitted at an entertaining 50-minute press conference, below. 

In the conference Tarantino said he was working on the second draft of "The Hateful Eight" and was in no hurry to complete a third, and might shoot it, or publish it, or put it on stage, or "all three," he said. Now Roger Friedman--who has good sources at The Weinstein Co.-- reports that Tarantino is planning to shoot "The Hateful Eight" with the cast from the live read in Wyoming (where he shot "Django Unchained") in November. 

That movie would star Samuel L. Jackson (Major Marquis Warren), Kurt Russell (bounty hunter John Ruth), Tim Roth (Brit Oswaldo Mobray), Amber Tamblyn (Daisy Domergue), Walton Goggins (Chris Mannix), Michael Madsen (John Gage), Bruce Dern (Confederate Gen. Smithers), James Parks (coach driver O.B.), Denis Menochet (Frenchman Bob), Dana Gourrier (Minnie), Zoe Bell (Six Horse Judy) and James Remar (Jody). What about Christoph Waltz? 

In the conference (full 50-minute video below), Tarantino covers a lot of ground, from the death of digital to an idea for a four-part "Django Unchained" cable mini-series.
