Yesterday, “due to unforeseen scheduling issues,” the world premiere of the now-shelved script was moved up to April 19 from April 24. The reading, to be directed and cast by the Oscar winner, also is changing venues. Instead of taking place at the LA County Museum of Art as announced last week, the live Hateful Eight now is set for the Theatre at the Ace Hotel in downtown LA.
The $200 tickets will go on sale to members of Film Independent, LACMA Film Club and New York Times Film Club on Friday at noon PT. If any tickets remain, they will go on sale to the general public at 5 p.m. PT on April 16.
Quentin Tarantino is still bringing The Hateful Eight to his fans, even though he put aside making the movie for the time being after the script was leaked online.
U.S. District Judge John Walter has scheduled a hearing in the case for April 14 and set a Jan. 27, 2015, trial date.
