Tarantino sues website over script.

Hollywood director Quentin Tarantino has sued a news and gossip site, saying it posted a leaked script of his latest project.

Tarantino's lawsuit accuses Gawker Media LLC of copyright infringement for posting a link to his 146-page script for a planned film called The Hateful Eight.

Gawker operates numerous sites and blogs and posted a link to Tarantino's script on its Defamer website last week.

An email sent to Gawker seeking comment wasn't immediately returned.

Tarantino's lawsuit filed today in a federal court in Los Angeles states that he planned to publish the script and has received substantial royalties and advances by doing so with past projects.
