Quentin Tarantino’s new western Hateful Eight is chugging along now, after having nearly been canceled by the filmmaker after his script leaked online… earlier than he would’ve liked, anyway. Tarantino recently confirmed that he will, in fact, be shooting the script; Kurt Russell and Samuel L. Jackson, who’ve collaborated with Quentin before (many times, in SLJ’s case), are lined up to play the movie’s central leads; and by the sound of it, principal photography may begin as soon as January 2015.
A Hateful Eight poster featured in an upcoming issue ofEmpire Magazine (hat tip to Film Divider) confirms that the film is begin targeted for a 2015 release date. That seems reasonable, as an early 2015 production start ought to allow Tarantino to make a late 2015 theatrical debut – possibly in December, like Tarantino’s spaghetti western/Blaxploitation mashup Django Unchained did in 2012 (by comparison the director’s WWII flick Inglouious Basterds arrived during the tail-end of summer, back in 2009).
Moreover, Hateful Eight might not be as prolonged a shoot as Tarantino’s more recent historical ventures, seeing how the script’s action is primarily restricted to a single location – bringing the director back to his indie roots, somewhat. Here is a synopsis for the story.
The Hateful Eight follows the steadily ratcheting tension that develops after a blizzard diverts a stagecoach from its route, and traps a pitiless and mistrustful group which includes a competing pair of bounty hunters, a renegade Confederate soldier, and a female prisoner in a saloon in the middle of nowhere.
