Tarantino Titles Next Film ‘The Hateful Eight’

Quentin Tarantino has selected “The Hateful Eight” as the title for his next film, a Western that’s not a sequel to “Django Unchained.”

The project has not been cast yet, but insiders say Tarantino’s script includes a part for Christoph Waltz, who won Oscars starring in Tarantino’s last two films — “Django” and “Inglourious Basterds.”

Tarantino revealed two months ago during an appearance on “The Tonight Show” he would be doing a Western again.

He told Jay Leno, “I haven’t told anyone this publicly, but I will say the genre: It’s a western. I had so much fun doing ‘Django,’ and I love westerns so much that after I taught myself how to make one, it’s like ‘OK! Let me make another one now that I know what I’m doing.’”

“The Hateful Eight” — which suggests a possible homage to John Sturges’ 1960 Western “The Magnificent Seven” — has not been set up at a studio. The Weinstein Co. and Sony partnered on “Django” while TWC and Universal teamed on “Basterds.”

Tarantino won screenplay Oscars for “Django Unchained” and “Pulp Fiction.”
