Having shelved plans to produce his script for the western “The Hateful Eight” after it was leaked online, the filmmaker will give fans a chance to experience it in the form of a live reading at LACMA on April 24.
The event will be held at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art’s Bing Theater.
“Quentin Tarantino is a key figure in the independent creative community,” said Josh Welsh, president of Film Independent. “We are thrilled that Quentin will be holding the World Premiere Staged Reading of his script of ‘The Hateful Eight’ with Film Independent at LACMA.”
The event will not be recorded or live-streamed and tickets, which go on sale on 9 April, will cost a whopping $200 each.
Quentin Tarantino is currently suing the website Gawker for encouraging readers to view an online copy of the 146-page screenplay in January 23.
