UPDATE, 4:47 PM: If you can’t wait for the live onstage reading of Quentin Tarantino’s The Hateful Eight later this month, your prayers are answered. Today, “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 on April 11 at noon instead of today for members of Film Independent, the LACMA Film Club and the NYT Film Club. Any remaining tix will go on sale on April 16 as previously scheduled. All proceeds still are going to helping out Film Independent’s programming efforts at LACMA.
PREVIOUS, April 3 AM: Quentin Tarantino is still bringing The Hateful Eight to his fans — even though the Oscar winner put aside making the movie for the time being after the Oscar winner’s latest script leaked online. Film Independent said today that Tarantino is set to direct and cast a live on-stage reading of the Western-themed script on April 24 in LA.
