Tarantino is suing Gawker.
In a complaint filed by Tarantino’s people over at Lavely & Singer, Gawker has crossed the line in helping to facilitate the distribution of Tarantino’s latest screenplay, Hateful Eight.
Tarantino was scheduled to begin shooting the film in 2014, but has recently decided to publish the story in book form rather than to direct. This decision was made when the screenplay was leaked after having been sent to only a handful of thesps, whom Tarantino was interested in having cast in the feature film.
