Quentin Tarantino has revealed that he is modifying the script of his next venture -- The Hateful Eight -- after it was leaked out earlier this year.

The 51-year-old American film director, who hosted a star-studded reading of the leaked script in Los Angeles, said that he is working on a second draft and will do a third draft as well, the New York Post reported. The script may hopefully be seen as a film as well.

Several actors, including Samuel L Jackson, Kurt Russell and Tim Roth, were part of the 177-minute-long script reading. Over 1200 people attended this reading.

The script was leaked in January this year. He had then said that he had "no desire to make it" and had told reporters that he was "very, very depressed." Tarantino had given the "first draft" to a mere six people, and felt intensely betrayed by the leak, further slamming Gawker with a lawsuit, after they published the entire script online, wrote Huffington Post.
