The Hateful Eight is Quentin Tarantino’s Next Film

Quentin Tarantino's The Hateful Eight Poster
With the first official The Hateful Eight poster revealed, Collider has confirmed that the epic Western with the previously leaked script will be Quentin Tarantino's next film.

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.

The cast announced so far includes: Bruce Dern, Samuel L. Jackson, Michael Madsen, Kurt Russell, James Remar, Amber Tamblyn, Walton Goggins, and Zoe Bell. No word on whether Tarantino will follow through with his original plan to shoot The Hateful Eight on 70mm, the wider, higher-resolution film gauge that was reserved for epics throughout the late 1950s and 1960s.
