There seems to have been a lot of talk about script writers suing Quentin Tarantino over the movie idea of Django Unchained. Does anybody know what happened to that lawsuit? Was it settled or did the idea disappear into thin air?

  • Was just filed last December. Won't hear about again until it settles or goes to trial. – dbugger Aug 6 '16 at 20:19
  • @dbugger Well, that already seems like the start of an answer. – Napoleon Wilson Aug 11 '16 at 11:57
  • @NapoleonWilson, since that's all there is, that's all I got. ;) – dbugger Aug 11 '16 at 12:04
  • @dbugger I think that, at least in the US, if you file something it goes public right? Is there a link to the lawsuit itself? – Maarten Bodewes Aug 11 '16 at 13:13

The case is still going on.

The latest order was on July 7, 2016. The order granted "Consent Motion for Extension of Time to Answer" by the defendants (Columbia Pictures Industries, Inc.)

Here is the summary of that order:

Defendant Columbia Pictures Industries, Inc. must answer or otherwise respond to the Complaint within twenty days of the filing date of the Court's ruling on The Weinstein Companys Motion to Dismiss10 .

  • I am going to mark this as answered, anybody who is interested in the outcome can follow the link I presume (I didn't want to ask a question without a direct answer, but there it is, outcome yet unclear). Thanks mr Pale. – Maarten Bodewes Sep 25 '16 at 12:55
