Quentin Tarantino has decided to scrap his latest film project after the script was leaked. The hyperactive puppet-faced director wrote the script for a new western called The Hateful Eight and sent it out to six people through Creative Artists Agency. Apparently, someone at CAA leaked the thing online and QT is in a tizzy about it. He told Deadline.com that,
“I’m very, very depressed. I finished a script, a first draft, and I didn’t mean to shoot it until next winter, a year from now. I gave it to six people, and apparently it’s gotten out today.”
One of the people was Bruce Dern and, if I had to guess, I think he did it. Not maliciously but just because he’s old as shit and doesn’t know how technology works. I can easily see him hitting forward instead of reply and sending the script to a barrister representing a Nigerian oil heiress trying to get her money safely out of the country. Tarantino decided that since one half of one percent of the potential movie-going audience might read the script before seeing the movie, that would ruin it for everybody, so he’s taking his N-bomb Western and going home. Tarantino fans are advised to watch his last five films and just pretend everybody is wearing cowboy hats, or just his last movie where they already did.
Last night was The 85th Annual Academy Awards and I’m completely ashamed to say I watched the entire thing. To sum it up, Seth MacFarlane did surprisingly not shitty, Jennifer Lawrence fell down, the Best Director winner was bullshit, Ben Affleck got snubbed, then didn’t and George Clooney kept getting free scotch thrown at him for smiling every time someone joked he banged and/or will bang somebody like nine-year-old Quvenzhané Wallis (Actual Seth MacFarlane joke.) who already had to deal with Daniel Day Lewis demanding she thank him backstage. This shouldn’t fuck a kid up.

As expected, Quentin Tarantinos ‘Django Unchained’ is getting the same fawning reviews most of his movies get (currently 100 percent on rotten tomatoes), but it’s also getting attention because the hero is a slave just before the Civil War, and they used very colorful language back then. Variety says:
“But here, even as it lays the groundwork for “Django’s” vengeance, dwelling on such brutality can verge on exploitation. To wit, the film problematically features no fewer than 109 instances of the “N word,” most of them deployed either for laughs or alliteration.”
Yeah well what can you do. Some people are racist and they use racist words. Have Chris Brown play a concert at Sturges, the 109 times you heard “nigger” in ‘Django’ will seem almost charming by comparison.
The first full length trailer for Quentin Tarantinos ‘Django Unchained’ was released last night, giving us our fist look at Samuel L. Jackson as Leonardo DiCaprios house n-word and Jonah Hill as Wait Why Is He In This.
Still, the movie looks like a lot of fun, and reminds me of the time I used my karate to protect a town from an evil oil barren who tried to steal their land. He thought taking my wife and daughter hostage would stop me. He thought wrong. Hi-Ya!
Quentin Tarantinos new movie ‘Django Unchained’, a western about a bounty hunter who needs the help of a slave, starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Christoph Waltz, and Jamie Foxx, finally has it’s first trailer.
It’s quickly explained that Waltz and Foxx team up because they need each other, but perhaps one day they’ll look back and realize the real gift wasn’t the reward at the end of their journey, but rather the journey itself, and all the fond memories they created about shooting people.
AXL ROSE - made a very rare public appearance and played a secret show this weekend in New York. Unfortunately the only guy who filmed it had never heard of a camera before, and no one told him what they were or how they worked. (foundry)
LEONARDO DICAPRIO - is not engaged to supermodel Bar Refaeli, despite some reports saying he is. He should settle down and get married. Finally see what everyone is raving about. (pop eater)
BRAD PITT AND QUENTIN TARANTINO - really love weed, but not while they work, so they didn’t smoke any while filming ‘Inglorious Basterds’. They tried, but the result was the first 45 minutes of the movie showing Brad asking if anyone ever noticed that cats have grandparents, and then everyone else agreeing that this was totally fucked up. (daily news)
BRAD PITT AND ANGELINA JOLIE - are in Venice, Italy today, holding hands and smiling while getting ice cream with Maddox, Pax, Zahara and Shiloh, who was dressed in a little bear cub (monkey?) hat. If these pictures were any more wholesome, they would be listed by the government as a source of calcium. (fame and inf)
