Quentin Tarantino wants to do a live stage production of The Hateful Eight

New, 4 comments

With only two more movies left on his list of things to do, Quentin Tarantino is looking toward future projects and one of those happens to be a live stage production of The Hateful Eight.

During a roundtable discussion with The Hollywood Reporter, Tarantino said as long as he still had "enough juice" leftover from the movie, he'd love to adapt his eighth feature film for the stage.

"I like the idea of other actors having a chance to play my characters," Tarantino said. "So that's where I'm at. I'm working my way into that time period, where I write novels and film pieces and film books, but in particular direct theater."

This isn't the first time Tarantino has shown an interest in producing live theater, and before he even entered production on The Hateful Eight, staged a live-reading of the script.

Still, this is just a handful of projects the director has recently said he'd like to work on. Earlier this week, he said he'd like his next project to be a television mini-series adaption of Elmore Leonard's Forty Lashes Less One, and of course, there are still two more feature films the director would like to direct.

The Hateful Eight, which will play on 70mm in limited theaters starting on Christmas, will be released nationwide on Jan. 8, 2016.
