The staged reading of Tarantino's unmade script is moved up to April 19 and is now set to take place at the Ace Hotel.

's "" gets early live reading. "Due to unforeseen scheduling issues," the show which was originally planned for April 24 is now moved up to April 19. Initially set to play at the L.A. County Museum of Art, the one-night-only gig is now staged at the Theatre at the Ace Hotel in downtown El Lay.

Tickets each priced at $200 will go on sale for members of Film Independent, the LACMA Film Club and the NYT Film Club on April 11, instead of on the original April 9. Any remaining tickets will go on sale on April 16 as scheduled. All proceeds will still be donated to benefit Film Independent's programming efforts at LACMA.

The script revolves around "the steadily ratcheting tension that develops after a blizzard diverts a stagecoach from its route, and traps a pitiless and mistrustful group which includes a competing pair of bounty hunters, a renegade Confederate soldier, and a female prisoner in a saloon in the middle of nowhere."

It was originally meant to be Tarantino's next western film after "", but was shut down after the script got leaked. Now the director is in the middle of legal battle against Gawker which published news about the script leak complete with a download link.
