The moviemaker's latest movie had a limited release in America on Christmas Day (25Dec15) and placed at number three at the North American box office over the weekend (03Jan16), and now Tarantino is hoping to take the project to theatres.

"The next thing I'd like to do is do a theatrical adaptation of The Hateful Eight, because I actually like the idea of other actors having a chance to play my characters and see what happens from that," the director told The Hollywood Reporter.

The Hateful Eight is Tarantino's eighth movie and he previously stated he will stop making films after his 10th release, and concentrate on writing novels and plays.

"I'm working my way into that time period where I write novels and write film pieces and film books and story novels, but in particularly theatre," he explained.

Admitting he has never written a play, the filmmaker added, "Reservoir Dogs could be put on stage and has been put on a stage many times."

Tarantino is confident he can become a successful novelist, in particular, because he's proud of his screenplays for Django Unchained and Inglourious Basterds as "pieces of literature".
