Jennifer Lawrence in talks for The Hateful Eight

After a lot of issues and a previous script leak, Quentin Tarantino did decide to bring The Hateful Eight to theaters. Word has it now that Oscar-winner and Hunger Games alum, Jennifer Lawrence, is in negotiations to star in the upcoming Western.

One thing we know is only one member of the "Hateful Eight" is a female and that is the role of Daisy Domergue (aka, The Prisoner). During the live read of the script a couple months ago, the role was read by Amber Tamblyn and Zoe Bell. However, after the internet leak of the script there have been a lot of revisions so it's possible the role Lawrence is up for is someone else or a brand new character.
Other cast members that have been rumored so far include frequent Tarantino collaborators, Michael Madsen and Samuel L. Jackson, along with Kurt Russell, Bruce Dern, and James Remar.

This would be an exciting casting choice, but Lawrence's involvement could very well fall through simply due to her busy schedule. She is still set to film additional shots for Mockingjay - Part 2 and is set to team back up with David O. Russell for Joy. The Hateful Eight currently holds a 2015 release as does both Mockingjay and Joy, so it very well could depend on when she's available. If they really want her it's possible the release for The Hateful Eight could change to accommodate her.
