Here's What the Soundtrack to Tarantino's Lost Film 'The Hateful Eight' Would Have Been


The strange saga of Quentin Tarantino’s Western script The Hateful Eight has taken a new turn. An anonymous user at 4plebs claims to have possession of a tracklist detailing 20 songs the filmmaker was planning to use in the project. As movie fans know, this is a big deal: Tarantino’s notoriously eclectic soundtracks are almost as legendary as the films themselves.

The Hateful Eight was derailed by Tarantino himself when he found out the unfinished script, which he’d given to just six people, had been leaked on the Internet. The outraged filmmaker shelved the project and claimed he would not make the film, then proceeded to take legal action against Gawker, which posted a link where the script could be downloaded.

Since then, rumors have circulated that the director has calmed down and might consider making the film after all. Fans will have to wait to find out for certain. Meanwhile, here’s the alleged photo of the original document, followed by a YouTube video list of all the songs.
