Quentin Tarantino is about to commence work on his third rewrite of much mooted Western, The Hateful Eight, with production expected to begin on the film in November.

According to Showbiz 411, Tarantino has "calmed down" after filing a lawsuit against Gawker after they leaked his script and is moving ahead with the cast he'd been using for live readings.

They are; Samuel L. Jackson, Bruce Dern, Michael Madsen, Kurt Russell, James Remar, Amber Tamblyn, Walt Goggins, and Zoe Bell.

Given how well Django Unchained went down, both commercially and critically, this is very much something to look forward to.
