"I gave it to six motherfucking people! Starting this week, I'll be setting meetings with publishers."
....... Q. Tarantino
“I do like the fact that everyone eventually posts [a screenplay], gets it and reviews it on the net,” Tarantino told Mike Fleming Jr. of Deadline. “Frankly, I wouldn’t want it any other way. I like the fact that people like my shit, and that they go out of their way to find it and read it. But I gave it to six motherfucking people!”
Tarantino said he first realised the screenplay had leaked when his agent began to receive calls from Hollywood agents keen to pitch their clients for roles in the western. "There is an ugly maliciousness to the rest of it," he said. "I gave it to three actors: Michael Madsen, Bruce Dern, Tim Roth. The one I know didn't do this is Tim Roth. One of the others let their agent read it, and that agent has now passed it on to everyone in Hollywood. I don't know how these fucking agents work, but I'm not making this next. I'm going to publish it, and that's it for now. I give it out to six people, and if I can't trust them to that degree, then I have no desire to make it. I'll publish it. I'm done. I'll move on to the next thing. I've got 10 more where that came from."
The director, who admitted during the interview that he could yet change his mind, said he hoped shelving the film would discourage future leaks. "I am not talking out of both sides of my mouth, because I do like the fact that everyone eventually posts it, gets it and reviews it on the net," Tarantino said. "Frankly, I wouldn't want it any other way. I like the fact that people like my shit, and that they go out of their way to find it and read it. But I gave it to six "motherfucking" people! Starting this week, I'll be setting meetings with publishers."
