Quentin Tarantino

Sues Gawker Over Leaked Script

You're Stealing My $$$$

0127_quentin-tarantino_tmzQuentin Tarantino isn't taking kindly to Gawker posting a link to his latest screenplay, "The Hateful Eight" -- which leaked online last week -- in fact, he just SUED the website ... accusing it of hitting him where it really hurts ... his wallet.

Tarantino's lawsuit reads, "Gawker Media has made a business of predatory journalism, violating people’s rights to make a buck ... This time they went too far."

Rather than reporting the story of the "Hateful Eight" screenplay leak, Tarantino claims Gawker went out of its way to publish the full script ... and even relished in it ... encouraging its audience to read the script illegally.

Tarantino is suing for copyright infringement.

Gawker's been down this road -- Hulk Hogan sued the site for $100 million last year for leaking part of his sex tape. And then there was the Lena Dunham book proposal leak, but Lena's the only one who cares about that.
