Do not mess with a creative man scorned by piracy.

The Hollywood Reporter is running a story this morning that claims filmmaker Quentin Tarantino is suing Gawker after the news and entertainment website posted his leaked Hateful Eight script without his permission.

“Depressed” Quentin Tarantino Shelves ‘Hateful Eight’ Following Early Script Leak

Remember that super-cool Western Quentin Tarantino was working on that could potentially star Bruce Dern alongside Christoph Waltz? Well, forget about it.

Speaking to Deadline in a new interview, writer-director Quentin Tarantino revealed he no longer plans on making The Hateful Eight as his next film. The entertainment news outlet claims an early leak of the script made the Django Unchained filmmaker “so upset that he has decided that he will not direct that film next.” Instead, Tarantino is considering the idea of publishing his early draft as a book. A quote later in the article adds, “Starting this week, …

‘Fast And Furious 7’ Will Retire Paul Walker’s Character

Dealing with the death of any leading star while moving forward with a major motion picture production is always difficult, but there is an added degree of sensitivity to matters when said stars dies in a way that could have fit into the films they were known for creating. Such is the case with Paul Walker and the still very much in production film known as Fast And Furious 7. After Walker’s death in late November (due to a fiery car crash), production on the highly-anticipated feature was put on immediate hold while studio execs and director James Wan …

J.J. Abrams And Lawrence Kasdan To Write New ‘Star Wars’ Script

It seems that writing duties have been passed from Michael Arndt to Episode VII director J.J. Abrams, and Star Wars veteran Lawrence Kasdan, for the newest episode in the series’ canon. Originally given to Arndt back in November, Abrams and Kasdan are stepping in to re-write, change, and presumably do many different things than Arndt has already done. In what is an attempt at a positive spin on the story via LucasArts, essentially what is happening is that someone, somewhere, wasn’t too happy with the way the script was going, and decided to bring in newer wrists to pen …

Actress Noomi Rapace States That The Script For ‘Prometheus’ Sequel Is In The Works

The Playlist got a doozy of a scoop while they were chatting with actress Noomi Rapace.

During a press junket for her upcoming thriller Dead Man Down (due out March 8), IndieWire writer Ben Taylor turned the topic of conversation from Rapace’s definite upcoming project to more speculative fare. Specifically, the possibility of a sequel to Prometheus, last year’s Ridley Scott helmed sorta-prequel to the Alien film franchise. And who better to ask than the heroine of the first (potential) installment and parenthetical followup?

On the possibility of a “Prometheus 2”, Rapace had this to say: 


READ THIS: The Script For “DEADGIRL 2” Is Now Online (And Free)

Trent Haaga is one of my heroes.

A few years ago, Trent partnered with some visually gifted friends and turned his script for Deadgirl into a motion picture that continues to haunt the darkest corners of my mind. The film was, to say the least, embraced with loving arms from the horror community and met with the usual outcry for a sequel. Haaga heard this cry and wrote a script for Deadgirl 2, but unfortunately it seem that is when things began to fall apart.

According to Haaga, via his official blog, (extreme) creative differences have killed all …


Dammit, “Top Gun 2” Is Happening

Tom Cruise is amidst a blitz of press for his latest Mission Impossible flick and recently spilt the beans about another sequel that is sure to equally overjoy and piss off the internet.

In a recent interview with MTVNews, Cruise shed a bit of light on the rumors that have been swirling about the possibility of a Top Gun sequel, but mostly just let people know it is in fact a reality in the making. If online stories are correct (and this is a good if), Ashley Miller and Zack Stentz, the screenwriters behind ‘Thor’ and ‘X-Men: First …
