EXCLUSIVE: It does seem as though Quentin Tarantino’s “The Hateful Eight” will roll this November. Sources I’ve talked to have said the cast will gather in Wyoming to begin shooting then. That cast will include Samuel L. Jackson, Bruce Dern, Michael Madsen, and all the actors who recently participated in the live reading of “Hateful Eight” that took place after the script was “leaked.” Those would be also Kurt Russell, James Remar, Amber Tamblyn, Walt Goggins, and Zoe Bell.
Sadly, two time Oscar winner Christoph Waltz is not in this movie after his award winning performances in “Inglorious Basterds” and “Django Unchained.”
Yesterday Tarantino did say he’d “calmed down” after the shock of the leak and subsequent lawsuit he filed against Gawker. He said he was doing his second rewrite and a third would follow. So a November start date sounds just about right. At least the opening scenes take place in Wyoming where Tarantino also shot a lot of “Django Unchained.”
