FIXING A LEAK
Quentin Tarantino has cancelled the filming of his next movie after discovering the script had leaked out to several Hollywood agents. The director told Deadline.com that he originally gave the script for the western Hateful Eight to six people, one of whom allegedly passed on the script to his agent, which was strictly against his wishes. “I finished a script, a first draft, and I didn’t mean to shoot it until next winter, a year from now,” Tarantino said. According to Tarantino, he only realized the script had leaked after his own agent, Mike Simpson, began getting calls from other agents looking to cast their clients in the film.

Jennifer Lawrence is ticked at a reporter for spoiling her Homeland viewing plans. The Hunger Games star was on the Screen Actors Guild red carpet earlier this week when she revealed to an Access Hollywood reporter that she was a fan of the Showtime cable drama. The reporter asked the actress if she wanted to meet Homeland star Damian Lewis, then spoiled the meeting by asking if she was disappointed that his character was killed in the third-season finale. Snapped Lawrence: “I can’t believe you said that! I said I’d seen the first and second season. I haven’t watched the third season. I don’t even know what to say!” Lawrence added: “I feel like the bottom of my heart has fallen out.”
