Because he can't trust the people he let read it...
Deadline reports that Quentin Tarantino's next Western, The Hateful Eight, has been put on an indefinite hiatus by the director following a script leak. He said that he will move forward with another script and will just publish the script for The Hateful Eight.
He said: "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 ten more where that came from. The idea was, I was going to write two scripts. I wasn't going to shoot the Western until next winter and I have been full of piss and vinegar about the other one. So now I'll do that one."
The actors who were sent copies of the script are Bruce Dern, Michael Madsen and Tim Roth. Tarantino also implied that parts were written for Christoph Waltz and Samuel L. Jackson, but that neither man was sent the screenplay.
