decided to put "" on the shelf when the movie's script leaked online earlier this year. However, the project may now see the light of day as the filmmaker has revealed that he will rewrite some parts of the script.

The 51-year-old writer/director hosted a star-studded reading of his "Hateful Eight" script at a hotel in Los Angeles on Saturday night, April 19. During the event, he told the crowd of 1,200 people, "I'm working on a second draft and I will do a third draft but we're reading from the first draft."

He also suggested that the script would be changed substantially in its last part, or what he called the fifth chapter. "The chapter five here will not be the chapter five later so this will be the only time it is seen, ever," he said.

According to Variety, the Saturday event also introduced in the role of Major Marquis Warren. Other actors included as Confederate General Smithers, as a bounty hunter named John Ruth and as his prisoner Daisy Domergue. "We've been rehearsing for the last three days," said Tarantino. "We're OK, we're not bad."

"The Hateful Eight" was meant to be Tarantino's next Western movie after the successful "". When the new project's script leaked back in January, the director said that he had "no desire to make it" and told Deadline that he was "very, very depressed."
