Earlier this year Quentin Tarantino well and truly spat his dummy over THE HATEFUL EIGHT. The cause of QT’s tantrum? That’d be that the script for his upcoming Western had leaked online, leading to The Chin deciding to shelve the movie altogether. Well, not only is the film back on, we have a shoot date and some casting news.
Revealed by Showbiz411, Tarantino has realised that he acted a tad erratically and has pencilled in the film to start shooting in Wyoming this November. Given that he hated the idea of the script being out there in the World Wide Web, the writer/director is apparently making a few changes to his initial script. That said, the film is still set to focus around a group of coach passengers stranded in the middle of nowhere.
In terms of cast, a lot of the names rumoured a few months ago are said to be officially on board. The names that are known at this point are Bruce Dern, Michael Madsen, James Remar, Tim Roth, Amber Tamblyn, Zoe Bell, Samuel L. Jackson, and Kurt Russell. What’s even cooler is that Jackson and Russell are set to play a pair of bounty hunters. After those rumours of Christoph Waltz being a part of the Western, it appears that he's currently out.
Expect more on THE HATEFUL EIGHT as it becomes available.
