Bruce Dern - Chris Waltz

Quentin Tarantino revealed two months ago during an appearance on ‘The Tonight Show’ that he would be doing a Western again, but not a sequel to the Best Picture nominated western of 2012, Django Unchained.

The director has finished the script for his upcoming western film, which is reportedly titled The Hateful Eight — which suggests a possible homage to John Sturges’ 1960 western The Magnificent Seven.

There are two actors that Tarantino has in mind for this picture: Christoph Waltz, who has worked with Tarantino on Inglourious Basterds and Django Unchained, and Nebraska star Bruce Dern, who also had a small part in Django. The 77 year-old vet thesp has emerged as a Best Actor frontrunner in new drama from Alexander Payne.

Word on the street says Tarantino has reached out to veteran casting director Victoria Thomas and Pilar Savone (who served as a producer on Django).

Filming on The Hateful Eight likely wouldn’t get underway until late this year, but hopefully we might get a peek at a script at some point.

Well, anyway, we’ll keep our eyes open for more news on another western from Tarantino.
