Tarantino has started filming Hateful Eight, plus new cast members revealed
Quentin Tarantino has begun principal photography on THE HATEFUL EIGHT (with a cast that includes Samuel L. Jackson, Kurt Russell, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Walton Goggins, Demian Bichir, Michael Madsen, Bruce Dern, Tim Roth and Channing Tatum), and it has also been announced several new actors have joined the western.
DEATH PROOF's Zoe Bell, KILL BILL's James Parks and DJANGO UNCHAINED actors Dana Gourrier, Keith Jefferson, Lee Horsley, Craig Stark and Belinda Owino have all been cast in supporting roles in the upcoming film, as well as THE SACRAMENT star Gene Jones.
Just in case you haven't memorized the lengthy official synopsis for THE HATEFUL EIGHT:
In The Hateful Eight, set six or eight or twelve years after the Civil War, a stagecoach hurtles through the wintry Wyoming landscape. The passengers, bounty hunter John Ruth (Russell) and his fugitive Daisy Domergue (Leigh), race towards the town of Red Rock where Ruth, known in these parts as “The Hangman,” will bring Domergue to justice. Along the road, they encounter two strangers: Major Marquis Warren (Jackson), a black former union soldier turned infamous bounty hunter, and Chris Mannix (Goggins), a southern renegade who claims to be the town’s new Sheriff. Losing their lead on the blizzard, Ruth, Domergue, Warren and Mannix seek refuge at Minnie's Haberdashery, a stagecoach stopover on a mountain pass. When they arrive at Minnie’s, they are greeted not by the proprietor but by four unfamiliar faces. Bob (Bichir), who’s taking care of Minnie’s while she’s visiting her mother, is holed up with Oswaldo Mobray (Roth), the hangman of Red Rock, cow-puncher Joe Gage (Madsen), and Confederate General Sanford Smithers (Dern). As the storm overtakes the mountainside stopover, our eight travelers come to learn they may not make it to Red Rock after all…
I'm very happy Quentin Tarantino decided to move forward with THE HATEFUL EIGHT after the script was leaked. Per usual, Tarantino has a fantastic cast for his new movie, and I'm definitely more than a little excited to check out his DJANGO UNCHAINED follow-up.
THE HATEFUL EIGHT doesn't have a release date yet, but it will likely be in theaters late 2015.
