Quentin Tarantino lashes out at Gawker once again

Quentin Tarantino has opened legal proceedings for the second time against the news website Gawker over a post that directed readers to a leaked copy of the screenwriter’s latest movie

Tarantino’s lawsuit accuses Gawker Media LLC of copyright infringement for posting a link to the 146-page script for a planned film titled “The Hateful Eight” The celebrity became aware of the script leak when his agent started getting calls from interested stars looking to be cast in the ensemble western. 

“Gawker itself illegally downloaded to its computers an unauthorized infringing PDF copy of the screenplay -- read it and learned that the PDF download was 146 pages,” the author and director said in a complaint filed last week against the website.
