HOLLYWOOD – With the release of the new trailer for Quentin Tarantino’s 8th film The Hateful Eight hitting the internet, what do we really know about this so called ‘Western’?

The Studio Exec sent the FACT Squad into the snowy mountains to discover all they could about the new Quentin Tarantino film The Hateful Eight.

1. Although Quentin Tarantino has completed the film, The Hateful Eight will never be seen by anyone. This is because when the script leaked onto the internet, Tarantino promised that he would never make the film and Tarantino is a man of his word. Many wished they’d leaked Deathproof onto the internet instead. After a successful live script read, Tarantino decided he would after all make the film, but no one would ever see it. It is due to be destroyed in December.

2. The Hateful Eight is Quentin Tarantino’s eighth film and it also has eight in the title. There are eight main characters. It was filmed over eight weeks with eight cameras operated by eight camera operators all of whom have only eight fingers and eight toes. There was a tale told of cameramen so motivated to take part in the production they asked Eli Roth to cut off the digits which were surplus to requirement.

3. Kurt Russell’s Mustache is so magnificent that it has not only reversed climate change but is currently defeating ISIS in Syria. There are delegations from the UN pleading with Mr. Russell to keep from shaving.

4. The cast for The Hateful Eight includes many Tarantino regulars, including Tim Roth, Samuel L. Jackson, Bruce Dern, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Michael Madsen and Kurt Russell. According to onset rumors, the entire cast had sex in a massive orgy organized by Tarantino who sat on a tennis umpire’s chair shouting directions through a large cardboard cone.

5. The Hateful Eight is the first Quentin Tarantino movie to feature an original score by the old maestro of Spaghetti western soundtracks, Ennio Morricone. This despite tensions between the two after Quentin asked to do some whistling on the soundtrack. ‘Ennio does all his own whistling,’ Tarantino explained to Comic-Con.

HOLLYWOOD -Following the fall-through of his Hateful Eight Western, Quentin Tarantino has announced he will be returning to Grindhouse territory with a another two-hander but this time taking over co-grunge duty is arch-auteur Terrence Malick.

Tarantino told the Studio Exec EXCLUSIVELY:

Robert Rodriguez is off his game at the moment. I mean, all he’s making is Grindhouse stuff now. So I was drinking Jagermeister with Terry and I happened to mention I’d like to go back and revisit the genre, being disappointed, as I am, with Death Proof. His eyes lit up and he whispered ‘the glory, the glory!’ and then danced around the bar for a full half hour to the strains of Goreki. 

Details are sketchy but Tarantino confirms that he will be writing a role for Kevin Costner to turn down. All that we know about Terrence Malick’s contribution is that he is already working on the script under the provisional title Big Tit Nazi Machine Gunners of the Wondrous Light. Terrence Malick was available to comment but we had something we had to do so we didn’t talk to him.

Grindhouse 2 will be released in 2015.
