According to Kurt Russell, who was doing some press in Philly for an unrelated project, “I’ve got a Tarantino project called The Hateful Eight that looks like it may go somewhere around the beginning of the year.” That’s hardly an ironclad guarantee, but it is enough that we can begin to think that, after the drama surrounding the western’s leaked script, that maybe Quentin Tarantino is ready to get this guy made.

A group of actors got together for a reading of The Hateful Eight earlier this year, and Russell was among them, so it’s likely that several other readers will be cast in the film. Those readers are:

  • Walton Goggins
  • James Parks
  • Amber Tamblyn
  • Michael Madsen
  • Bruce Dern
  • James Remar
  • Samuel L. Jackson
  • Tim Roth
  • Kurt Russell

That’s a pretty Tarantino-looking list, so let’s go ahead and get our hopes up!

Kurt Russell seems to have found his infatuation after starring in Grindhouse. In The Art of the Steal, Russell plays a washed-up stuntman who moves to the world of art theft.

Cool.

In the film, his big score is a Gutenberg bible, which I’m sure the Westboro Baptist Church will have an opinion on. The film also stars Matt Dillon, Jay Baruchel, and Jason Jones.

Nobody Wants To Be In ‘Django Unchained’ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/nobody-wants-to-be-in-django-unchained/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/nobody-wants-to-be-in-django-unchained/#comments Thu, 10 May 2012 18:59:34 +0000 Wookie Johnson http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=248610 Except for Walton Goggins.

No stranger to cast shake-ups, Django Unchained is once again losing a few marquee names. Sacha Baron Cohen announced yesterday that The Dictator publicity tour will require him to show up places and throw ashes on the unsuspecting rather than take the small slave owner role he’d previously agreed to. That’s a bummer. I was eager to see how he’d set back civil liberties on the red carpet at the premiere.

Also peace-outtying the production is Quentin Tarantino’s Death Proof star Kurt Russell. An anonymous source claims they witnessed Russell storm off set apparantly unhappy with his role. However, if that was his standard practice how do you explain all of those Kurt Russell movies? Luckily, Walton Goggins is on set to lend a hand.

Goggins, who plays a different evil son of a bitch in the film, will absorb the evil deeds that Russell’s son of a bitch was slated to commit. Thanks for being a team player, Walton. (Cinema Blend)

Kurt Russell Will Inspirationally-Coach Once Again In ‘Touchback’ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/kurt-russell-will-inspirationally-coach-once-again-in-touchback/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/kurt-russell-will-inspirationally-coach-once-again-in-touchback/#comments Wed, 30 Nov -0001 00:00:00 +0000 Kurt Russell is Kurt Russell in "Kurt Russell." Coming soon to a theater near you. Kurt Russell is adding another entry to the "Kurt Russell Plays An Inspirational Coach" sub-genre of film with Touchback. What makes this different from the other times Kurt has hung a whistle around his neck? Magical time travel. Literally, this movie has magical time travel. From the producer of We Are Marshall, Invincible, The Rookie, and other movies with sepia toned posters, Touchback tells the story of a would-be star athlete whose luck falls apart when he is injured during a high school game. Years later, he is magically transported back to the fateful game that wrecked his career. He must choose between the crummy life he has, for the one he always wanted. Just like when Jim Belushi had to choose between Linda Hamilton and Rene Russo in Mr. Destiny, except this time it's football and there's no Jon Lovitz. (Variety)
