Up to this point, we didn't know all that much about Quentin Tarantino's new flick, The Hateful Eight, besides the fact that it will probably be very plain, boring, and not at all violent. Sike. This is one of the movies I'm most excited for that's on the foreseeable horizon. We know it has something in common with a play by Eugene O'Neill and the cult classic Reservoir Dogs, and I'm sure we'll get our fair share of excitement and bad-ass action sequences.
Well, that's changed... kinda. Entertainment Weekly dropped an issue focusing on the film and its stars Samuel L. Jackson, Kurt Russell, and Jennifer Jason Leigh, putting them on the cover in their Western clothes. The film also features Tim Roth, Michael Madsen, Walton Goggins, Bruce Dern and Demián Bichir.
You may remember that this movie almost didn't happen after copies of his script leaked online last year. That would've been a bummer because, from what I can tell, it's going to be another classic. I'm silently hoping it is Django-esque.
Tarantino said that, like Reservoir Dogs, it will feature "a bunch of guys in a room who can't trust each other." It'll be based off the vibe in O'Neill's play "The Iceman Cometh," but in a Western style. Also, apparently the last little bit of information is that we will have another epic Samuel Jackson monologue. Yes.
Here's the cover... for more hit up Entertainment Weekly.
Gotta love the facial hair game on both of these guys. Sign me up!
