Quentin Tarantino's The Hateful Eight Will Shoot In Colorado
And QT's Western will get 'widest 70mm release in 20 years'

Update: Winning out over the western landscapes of Utah and Wyoming, the state of Colorado has secured the deal to welcome Quentin Tarantino's Hateful Eight. They tempted the production with a $5m incentive package that will, permits approving, see Tarantino filming on a 900-acre ranch near Telluride. Fittingly, it's the biggest film to hit the state since True Grit in 1969.

Quentin Tarantino

There's news just in that Quentin Tarantino’s on-again, off-again Western, The Hateful Eight, will commence shooting in January – all in glorious 65mm. Harvey Weinstein, renewing his long acquaintance with the writer/director, is promising to pull out all the stops for the post-Civil War Western and afford it “the widest 70mm release for over 20 years”. Eat your pickled heart out, The Master.

Said Harvey and Bob Weinstein in a statement, “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."

There are few plot details out there yet, unless you're one of the few people to have seen that leaked draft that had Tarantino threatening to abandon the film, but the winter shoot does present the intriguing prospect of a snowbound Western, a la The Searchers or McCabe & Mrs. Miller.

What we do know is that its marketing campaign has already swung into effect – quite possibly the quickest in Hollywood history – with a blood-splashed poster and a teaser trailer.

Neither flaunts the cast that Tarantino has assembled to top-line his tale of bounty hunters caught up in a bloody plot while seeking shelter from the storm. QT regulars Kurt Russell, Tim Roth, Michael Madsen, Bruce Dern, Walton Goggins and Samuel L. Jackson are all on board.
 
The Hateful Eight will arrive with us in 2015, which means Tarantino will need to shoot and edit pretty darn sharpish.
