'The Hateful Eight' Confirmed for January Shoot & Fall 2015 Release

September 3, 2014

The Hateful eight

Following rumblings from Kurt Russell that shooting on Quentin Tarantino's new western The Hateful Eight would shoot early next year, and assumptions the film would get an awards season release in 2015, a press release from The Weinstein Company has officially confirmed both of those details. More specifically, the film will star shooting in January to arrive in theaters next fall, though no specific date has been chosen. And as the teaser poster and trailer both indicated, the film will be shown in 70mm and the press release touts that it will be "the widest 70mm release in over 20 years." And that's just plain awesome. Read on!

Harvey and Bob Weinstein also released the standard publicity fluff saying, "We are incredibly excited to begin production on The Hateful Eight, as we know this picture will be as innovative, brash and of course fun as all Quentin projects prior. There is, quite simply, no other filmmaker like him, and we are as proud as ever to continue this partnership that started over 20 years ago." Now we're just waiting to see if cast members like Samuel L. Jackson, Bruce Dern, Walton Goggins and more from the live-reading of the script will end up on board, or if that report about Jennifer Lawrence being involved is true. Stay tuned.

    As if 2015 wasn't already a huge enough year.

    I'm glad he still decided to make this project, if it's any consolation, I still have no clue what it's really about beyond a stage coach breaking down.
      I can't wait.
    Fuck Yeah. We called this shit right from the beginning. This is going to kill it!
