Quentin Tarantino to begin shooting 'The Hateful Eight' in November
The filmmaker previously shelved plans to make the Western after the script was leaked online
Filming on Quentin Tarantino's The Hateful Eight will begin in November, according to reports.
The filmmaker shelved plans to make the Western in January of this year after the script was leaked online. Tarantino, who had first revealed his intentions to start work on the picture in November 2013, was reportedly livid after the leak and described it as a "betrayal".
However, Total Film reports that Tarantino has "calmed down" over the leak and will begin shooting toward the end of the year with a cast including Bruce Dern, Samuel L. Jackson, Michael Madsen, Kurt Russell and Amber Tamblyn.
The Hateful Eight is set in a post-Civil War Wyoming with regular Tarantino collaborator Jackson to play a bounty hunter alongside Russell while Dern will star as a Confederate general, Madsen a cowboy and Tamblyn a female prisoner.
Tarantino's last film, Django Unchained, was a critical and commercial hit upon its 2012 release and subsequently won an Oscar for Best Original Screenplay, with Christoph Waltz pick up the Best Supporting Actor gong.
