They would fire an actor and I know members of crew who have been fired, definitely, no devices at all. It's really a focus thing, if we're here, we're here to work—Tim Roth
Hateful Eight actor Tim Roth has joked that Quentin Tarantino has a rule that people should not use their phone's on the set.
Tarantino has apparently issued an edict to his cast that they'll be immediately fired if he finds them with a mobile device while shooting, reported Digital Spy.
"He developed certain habits like, there's no phones on set at all, that's a done, no electronic devices so you have checkpoint charlie, and whether it's on land or the side of a mountain or wherever, you hand your phones in," Hateful Eight Roth revalued on The Jonathan Ross Show.
"Nobody is allowed to have a device at all. You'd be fired, immediately fired. I said to him, 'What happens if one of your actors brings a phone on and is doing a bit of that Angry Birds?' and he said, 'Oh if it's an actor, I just leave the set and the Weinsteins show up and it'll be recast'.
