Quen­tin Taran­tino is pre­pa­ring him­self for ano­ther ride into the wild west. With „The hate­ful Eight“, Taran­tino is ente­ring the spa­ghetti-wes­tern genre once again, as he hopes to build on his latest suc­cess „Django Unchai­ned“. The direc­tor and wri­ter has also writ­ten a part for his good fri­end Chris­toph Waltz. He hopes that the Ger­man-Aus­trian actor will work with him once again. Filming begins in Sum­mer 2014.

The Hateful Eight“ is still the working title

The Hate­ful Eight“ maybe just a working title, accord­ing to The Hol­ly­wood Repor­ters sour­ces. The title sug­gests Taran­tino could be upping the ante, play­ing off the title of John Stur­ges‘ 1960 film The Magni­fi­cent Seven, which in turn was a remake of Akira Kurosawa’s 1954 Seven Samu­rai.

Christoph Waltz and Bruce Dern as lead actors?

Vic­to­ria Tho­mas is res­pon­si­ble for cas­ting. She alre­ady did a great job, picking the actors for Django Unchai­ned. By now, there no defi­ni­tive com­mit­ments by actors. Taran­tino sta­tet at a party, which he always throws after the com­ple­tion of a new script, that he would love to work with Cris­toph Waltz once again. Waltz’s inter­na­tio­nal bre­akth­rough began with the role of SS-Stan­dar­ten­füh­rer Hans Landa in Inglo­rious Bas­terds. After that he played the bounty hun­ter „Dr. King Schulz“ in Django Unchai­ned, for which he got an Oscar for best sup­porting actor.  In addi­tion, a script has repor­tedly been sent to Bruce Dern. He did some ama­zing acting in the road movie „Nebraska“ and is con­side­red one of the Oscar Favou­rites 2014.
