Quentin Tarantino Loves JLAW…But Not Enough To Cast Her In “The Hateful Eight.”

Paris Fashion Week - Dior Fashion Show Fall/Winter 2014-2015

Quentin Tarantino is a HUGE fan of Jennifer Lawrence, but decided NOT to cast her in his new movie. So what’s the deal?

A couple months ago J.Law was in contention for a phenomenal role as an insane criminal en route to the gallows in Tarantino’s new western The Hateful Eight. But, she didn’t snag the role. QT said:

“When I was looking for Daisy, I could have seen Jennifer Lawrence doing a good job with the role. I’m a very big fan of hers. I think she could end up being another little Bette Davis if she keeps on going the way she’s going. I think her work with David O. Russell is very reminiscent of William Wyler and Bette Davis’s.”

That being said…

“Daisy should be a little older. She should fit in with the guys. Jennifer Jason Leigh came in and was really good. She went for a couple of things that other people just kind of playacted. She had to act like she got shot, and she just screamed bloody murder. I kept remembering Jennifer’s bloodcurdling scream. If it had happened in a house, somebody would have called the cops.”

So who snagged it? Amber Tamblyn originated the role of Daisy Domergue during the staged live reading, but it went to Single White Female star Jennifer Jason Leigh, who is gonna KILL IT.

What do you think of JLaw being passed over?

Quentin Tarantino is out for blood over leaked manuscript!


Quentin Tarantino is going for the jugular!

The director is suing Gawker for posting a link to his latest screenplay, “The Hateful Eight,” which leaked online last week.

The lawsuit reads, “Gawker Media has made a business of predatory journalism, violating people’s rights to make a buck … This time they went too far.”

Instead of simply reporting on the screenplay leak, Gawker went out of it’s way to publish links to the full script, and encouraged viewers to read the script illegally.

He is suing for copyright infringement.

“The Hateful Eight” was to be Quentin’s next movie, a western. He’s said he’s so upset over the leak of the script, that now he has no interest in making it.

Damn fools!

Quentin Tarantino reveals his next movie is going to be another western!

quentin tarantino

‘Django Unchained’ was probably one of my favorite (if not my favorite) movie of 2012. I think Quentin Tarantino is a genius. There, I said it. He went on the Leno show last night – and told Jay his next movie is also going to be a Western. I’m super excited about that!

Quentin Tarantino got a little emotional during his last visit to “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno” on Tuesday. The Oscar winner made sure to point out how important Leno and “The Tonight Show” had been to his career.

Back in 1992, during Leno’s first year as host, Tarantino appeared on the show as a “civilian guest” to promote “Reservoir Dogs.” (Leno had read about Tarantino, who then worked at a video store, writing and directing the indie film.) He kept a coffee mug from that appearance and every subsequent spot on the show, marking his way from being the “fourth guest” to the lead guest. As a farewell present, Leno gave him one last mug, marked “Best Director.”

Tarantino had a gift for Leno as well: scoop about the acclaimed director’s next movie. “I haven’t told anybody this publicly, but I will say the genre: It’s a Western. It’s another Western,” Tarantino said. “It’s not a ‘Django’ sequel. 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.’

FIRST LOOK! Leonardo DiCaprio in Quentin Tarantino’s ‘Django Unchained’

Today we’re getting our first look at Leonardo DiCaprio in Quentin Tarantino’s new movie, ‘Django Unchained’.

DiCaprio looks awesome as a villainous plantation owner, who kidnaps Broomhilda (played by Kerry Washington), the wife of Jamie Foxx’s character.

“All Django wants to do is get his wife,” Foxx told EW’s about the new Quentin Tarantino film. “He’s not trying to cure or solve slavery. He just wants to get his life back.”

Foxx said that Tarantino’s tackles slavery in a way that few Westerns have ever attempted.

“There’s a beautiful way [Tarantino] found for the characters to talk to each other,” he said. “It’s mindblowing.”

“Django Unchained” is out in theaters on Christmas Day.
