I love the fact that Tarantino’s Hateful Eight hasn’t even began shooting and we’re already getting some artwork! It’s never too early to get the media machine rolling I guess.
Hot on the heels of his SDCC announcement that he was done crying about the leaked script pages and that The Hateful Eight would indeed be his next film, we get this poster that suggests a 2015 release. I dig that they stuck with the minimalistic approach as was seen with the Django Unchained posters. One last note, if you look closely at the bottom of the poster you’ll see that apparently The Hateful Eight will be shot in 70-millimeter Super Cinemascope!
Currently the cast list certainly reads like a Tarantino film with the likes of Bruce Dern, Samuel L. Jackson, Michael Madsen, Kurt Russell, James Remar, Amber Tamblyn, Walton Goggins, and Zoe Bell.
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.
