Dir. Quentin Tarantino
After threatening to shelf the production for several years and embark on other projects, writer/ director Quentin Tarantino ultimately decided to go ahead with making The Hateful Eight after an early draft of the script leaked online without his consent. After making his first western in Django Unchained, the filmmaker admitted he feels more comfortable producing another genre entry. The plot follows a group of bounty hunters and the like holed up during a blizzard in post-Civil War Wyoming. Tarantino rounded up another quality cast per usual with Jennifer Jason Leigh, Samuel L. Jackson, Kurt Russell, Bruce Dern, Tim Roth, Michael Madsen, Walton Goggins, and Zoë Bell.
