Tarantino may have had a major hissy fit after the script for Hateful Eight leaked and said he wasn’t going to make the film, but he’s since changed his mind and is now putting his cast together. The latest name to join the throng is Channing Tatum, who is circling a major role according to Deadline.
Samuel L. Jackson, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Bruce Dern, Tim Roth, Michael Madsen and Kurt Russell are already set to star in the film, which is set in Wyoming shortly after the Civil War. It’s about a group of eight people who during a blizzard hole up in a store while they wait to be able to get out. However as the title suggests, things soon get out of control partly due to the fact these aren’t the nicest of people.
Tarantino plans to start shooting the movie in early 2015 (assuming no one else leaks anything and he gets pissed off again, of course). It should be in cinemas by the end of the year.
