    Its time to wake up the lawyer gimp



    Quentin Tarantino
    has filed a copyright lawsuit against Gawker Media for allegedly facilitating the dissemination of copies of his unproduced script,The Hateful Eight.

    Last week, the famous director was outraged after details about the Western circulated. He was so irate that he told the media that he wouldn't be making the picture as his next film.
    Soon afterwards, Gawker's Defamer blog linked to the 146-page script under a post titled, "​Here Is the Leaked Quentin Tarantino Hateful Eight Script." "Gawker Media has made a business of predatory journalism, violating people's rights to make a buck," says Tarantino's lawsuit, a copy of which was obtained by The Hollywood Reporter.

    "This time, they went too far. Rather than merely publishing a news story reporting that Plaintiff's screenplay may have been circulating in Hollywood without his permission, Gawker Media crossed the journalistic line by promoting itself to the public as the first source to read the entire Screenplay illegally."

    The screenplay probably sucked and this is his way to backtrack

    I figured he would remake the Searchers, but have Indians kill John Wayne to assuage all white guilt forevermore.

    Haha. "The part where the black guy gets a big thick cock in his ass, that was mine Robin. Quentin just reversed the roles."

    You know I used to be a patron of Video Archives, the Manhattan Beach Video Store where Tarantino worked. Still can't believe that big headed guy made it big.

    Hours after reading the script, Gawker counter sued Tarantino for writing another bullshit self indulgent script full of stolen material and a another big part for him and his ego. :facepalm:
