Tarintino who gave the script to a handful of trusted actors told Deadline in January 2014 that he will not produce to the film anymore because he believes one of the actors let their agent read it which ended up becoming the talk of Hollywood.
“I don’t know how these fucking agents work, but I’m not making this next. I’m going to publish it, and that’s it for now. I give it out to six people, and if I can’t trust them to that degree, then I have no desire to make it. I’ll publish it. I’m done. I’ll move on to the next thing. I’ve got 10 more where that came from.”
What a waste of genius.
There is some good news for Tarantino fans however, all of his efforts were not in vain as he will still debut the screenplay. Tarintino will cast and direct a once-in-a-lifetime screening and first appearance of his original screenplay for Film Independent at LACMA, a popular nonprofit organization that “produces the Spirit Awards and the Los Angeles Film Festival”.
- But there’s more than one catch: This is going to be a one-time-only occasion, and
- It is not be recorded or live-streamed.
Oh yes, Tarantino is finally getting what he wanted. The one-time-production can be only seen at the Bing Theater by those who secure tickets for it amidst tight security.
The film which debuts on 24th April will donate all proceeds to the LACMA organization.
