When an early draft of the script for Quentin Tarantino's ensemble western The Hateful Eight leaked earlier this year, a "very, very depressed" Tarantino declared that he was not planning to continue with the project. But at a live script reading in April, the director announced that he was working on a second draft of the screenplay, stirring hopes that the post-Civil War stagecoach drama might not be doomed after all. Now those suspicions have been confirmed: At a Comic-Con panel promoting his Django Unchained-Zorro crossover comic book Sunday night, Tarantino was asked by an audience member whether The Hateful Eight would be his next feature, to which he responded, after a pause: “Yeah — We’re going to be doing The Hateful Eight at the beginning of the year." It's not clear yet exactly which actors will make up the cast — most of the participants from the live read are expected to reprise their roles — but whoever it is had better keep those new scripts locked up tight. We've got our eyes on you, Bruce Dern.
