Quentin Tarantino's Script Leaking Scandal Should Be a Quentin Tarantino Movie

By Jordan Smith, Hollywood Staff

Life mirrors art, right?

Just a few short days ago, pre-production on Quentin Tarantino's upcoming western flick The Hateful Eight was running like clockwork. The director was courting Oscar nominee Bruce Dern for the lead, and setting the foundation for what was supposed to be his next film. But just like that, the picture's dead, friendships are broken, and words like betrayal and revenge are hanging in the air like a low fog.

In one of those instances of behind the scenes drama that threatens to be more interesting than the actual film could possibly be, The Hateful Eight is being shelved indefinitely because the script was leaked across Hollywood, and Tarantino is not a happy camper. Tarantino contacted Deadline to release his anger; and reading through Tarantino's accusations and the mobster-like language that dots his writing, it sounds like the director is in the middle of writing one of his own screenplays. This whole situation feels like some sort of meta-filmmaking revenge tragedy that has all the same themes and trappings of Tarantino's best work. So which of Tarantino's previous films best resemble the director's current predicament?
