Bruce Dern confirms Quentin Tarantino film rumors

Posted on

Bruce Dern has confirmed that he spoke with Quentin Tarantino about the possibility of appearing in the director’s next movie. “We had a conversation,” said Dern, who yesterday received a Best Actor Oscar nomination for his performance as delusional alcoholic Woody Grant in the film Nebraska. “I mean, he hasn’t hired me yet or anything. But we had a conversation about the material, yes we did.”

Last weekend, Deadline reported that Tarantino had finished a draft of his next project — a Western called The Hateful Eight — and that he was eyeing Christoph Waltz and Dern as possible cast members. Waltz himself won an Oscar for his role in Tarantino’s last film Django Unchained, a movie in which Dern also had a small part.
