Quentin Tarantino is making that movie he swore he wasn't going to make

Earlier this year, the script for Quentin Tarantino's The Hateful Eight was leaked onto the internet, and he was so infuriated that he swore he would abandon the project altogether. "I'm not making [The Hateful Eight] next," said Tarantino in January. "I give it out to six people, and if I can't trust them to that degree, than I have no desire to make it. I'll publish it. I'm done. I'll move onto the next thing. I've got 10 more where that came from."

It sounds like those other 10 projects can wait after all. Slashfilm reports that Tarantino "has fully revived plans" to direct The Hateful Eight as his next movie, with a star-studded cast that includes Samuel L. Jackson, Bruce Dern, Michael Madsen, and Kurt Russell. Tarantino is currently revising the script, which will reportedly differ from the leaked first draft "in a few significant ways," so all you paranoid spoilerphobes can relax.
