Tarantino Lawsuit Says Site Posted Leaked Script

Created: 01/27/2014 2:34 PM WDIO.com

LOS ANGELES (AP) - Quentin Tarantino has sued a news and gossip site, saying it posted a leaked script of the director's latest project.

Tarantino's lawsuit accuses Gawker Media LLC of copyright infringement for posting a link to his 146-page script for a planned film called "The Hateful Eight."

Gawker operates numerous sites and blogs and posted a link to Tarantino's script on its Defamer website last week.

An email sent to Gawker seeking comment wasn't immediately returned.

Tarantino's lawsuit filed Monday in a federal court in Los Angeles states that he planned to publish the script and has received substantial royalties and advances by doing so with past projects.

Tarantino has won two screenwriting Academy Awards.

The lawsuit was first reported Monday by The Hollywood Reporter.
