Jennifer Lawrence joining Quentin Tarantino's 'The Hateful Eight'?

by Posted on ⋅ Last edit on

America's sweetheart Jennifer Lawrence is at a point in her career where she can do just about anything she wants. She already has an Oscar for best actress and another 2 nominations to her name, she also has one of the biggest franchises currently running, "The Hunger Games", so what is next for the Oscar winning actress?

Well possibly a Tarantino flick. According to reports, Jennifer Lawrence is in talks to join Tarantino's upcoming Western, "The Hateful Eight". Her rumored role has not been specified.

The Hateful Eight is described as a story about bounty hunters who transport prisoners through 19th century Wyoming. 2012 proved that Tarantino is the perfect fit for a Spaghetti Western when he blew us all away with the magnificent "Django Unchained".

It looks like Lawrence is in active talks for the role, more than just being on the wishlist for the film.

A lot of you may remember that at the beginning of the year, a draft of the script for "The Hateful Eight" leaked online and Tarantino thwarted that he would not make the film due to being betrayed by someone he trusted with the script. Tarantino changed his mind after many months and re wrote the script, changing the ending and several other things.

When Tarantino staged a reading of the script the main female parts of Daisy and Six Horse Judy were read by Amber Tamblyn and Zoe Bell. Tarantino may have since written a new role for Lawrence or she may be taking one of the roles above.

Jennifer Lawrence is currently shooting The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2 which is scheduled to hit theaters next year. Then she is reuniting with David O' Russell for the third time for a biopic called "Joy".

The most recent synopsis for The Hateful Eight suggests the film “follows 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”.

"The Hateful Eight" is said to start production in the early months of 2015. The movie is rumored to star Bruce Dern (Django Unchained), Kurt Russell (Deathproof), Michael Madsen (Resevoir Dogs), James Remar (Django Unchained), Walter Goggins (Django Unchained) and of course Samuel L Jackson (just about every Tarantino movie).

I would love to see Jennifer Lawrence join this cast, she is one of the, if not the best actress working today. She is an Academy favorite, she's a hit with fans and she's incredibly talented and I'd love to see her in a Tarantino flick!
