Might Quentin Tarantino's new western be going by the name of The Hateful Eight?

It now looks certain that Quentin Tarantino will be following up on his plan to make another western his next film. Following the huge success of Django Unchained, the writer/director/not actor had revealed towards the end of last year that he intended to make another, and a few details of what he has planned next have come to light.

The new film is reportedly called The Hateful Eight (although that's the working title right now), and the plan is apparently to go before the cameras this coming summer. Christoph Waltz is set to reunite with Tarantino for a third time too, and according to one report, Nebraska's Bruce Dern is also on Tarantino's radar.

The Hateful Eight? Might that be a nod in there somewhere to The Magnificent Seven/Seven Samurai? Just a (fairly obvious) thought...

Really enjoyed Django Unchained (Like i do most of his films). Im looking forward to this

If there would be seven guys in a deconstruction of "The Magnificent Seven" then the film could be called "The Malicious Seven", which I think rolls easier off the tongue.

More Tarrantino dialogue being spoken by Christoph Waltz? Can I book my ticket now?

that's a perfect title. It describes the whole film

I still don't think he has made a 'great' film since Jackie Brown.

I enjoyed Inglorious Bastards and I thought Django Unchained was ok, but nothing special. Neither film make me want to re-watch where as I've seen Pulp Fiction, Jackie Brown so many times I have lost track.

I was hoping he would just go back to making a film set in modern day as those are obviously where he excels. All films since Jackie Brown just seem like ' a bit of fun'.

Actually, I forgot about Death Proof. I liked Death Proof a lot.

What are your opinions on Kill Bill? (just interested)

I thought they were pretty good actually. I didn't dislike them but I haven't gone out of my way to re-watch them. I thought it was Tarantino 'having a bit of fun', which is what those films were.

So he succeeded in what he was trying to do.

I definitely preferred Kill Bill 2 to the 1st one. It just felt more like a Tarantino film than the other one.

I agree, I suppose it was probably quite hard to follow up Reservoir Dogs, Pulp Fiction and Jackie Brown without disappointing a lot of people with high expectations.

I actually preferred Kill Bill 1 to 2, I just thought the second one was overly wordy which isn't so much a criticism when it comes to Tarantino because he's one of the best dialogue writers out there, but I just thought it would have been just as good with some of it cut down.

Ha, that's why I preferred the second actually. Coz it was wordier! Plus I loved all of Micheal Mann's scenes.

Let's just hope he decides not to attempt acting this time...

I think we can already agree that this film is awesome.
