When the director held the live reading of his screenplay back in April, Amber Tamblyn read the role of Daisy Domergue, a woman who is wanted for murder and set to hang for her crimes. Jennifer Jason Leigh actually attended the live screenplay reading in Los Angeles, sitting next to The Weinstein Company chairmen Harvey Weinstein and Bob Weinstein along with producer Stacey Sher. The role was one of the most coveted for Hollywood actresses in recent months, with Jennifer Jason Leigh beating out other notable performers such as Michelle Williams, Hilary Swank, Robin Wright and Demi Moore.
With names such as Jennifer Lawrence, Evan Rachel Wood, Geena Davis and Hilary Swank leading the charge when it came to the rumored list of actors lining up to take the lead female role in Quentin Tarantino's next film, The Hateful Eight, it is most likely to come as a surprise to learn that role has gone to none other than Jennifer Jason Leigh. Leigh will take the role of Daisy Domergue, a character portrayed by Amber Tamblyn during Tarantino's live read. While I haven't read the screenplay that began circling the Internet last spring I do know Leigh is older than Tamblyn, which suggests he may have added a few years of wisdom to the character in his rewrites. As for the story, the ensemble Western centers on bounty hunters returning human plunder to a town called Red Rock in exchange for hefty rewards who run into a Southerner on the road. »

Jackson, Kurt Russell, Tim Roth, Michael Madsen, Walton Goggins and Denis Menochet locked in and Bruce Dern, James Remar, James Parks, Diana Gourrier and Zoe Bell expected to join the violent fun. »
Next year’s full to bursting with potentially brilliant geek films, so to help, here’s our pick of 25 must-see movies out in 2015…
Compiling a list of next year's most exciting films is extremely difficult. What do you put in? What do you leave out? Those are some of the questions we've had to ask ourselves as we drew up the long-list of our most anticipated films of 2015. In an attempt to limit the number of sequels which can fill up a list such as this, we've left out something like Fast & Furious 7, even though we're fairly sure it'll be a lot of fun. With but two significant exceptions, we've excluded some of the films we were looking forward to this year that have been delayed until the next, such as Kingsman: The Secret Service and Frankenstein.
What we're left with, we hope, is a fairly broad selection of action and comedy, »
It’s funny to think that just a few months ago, the idea of Quentin Tarantino’s The Hateful Eight seeing the light of day was nothing more than a pipe dream. After the film’s script leaked earlier this year, Tarantino stopped production on the film, but quickly calmed down and set the wheels in motion once more. Now, it appears that things are moving ahead even faster than expected, as we’ve just learned that cameras will begin shooting a month earlier than previously reported.
The Denver Post is reporting that The Hateful Eight will film exclusively in Colorado thanks to a $5 million incentive package. This makes Tarantino’s new western the highest-profile pic to shoot in the region since 1969′s True Grit. Now that a location is in place, Tarantino will reportedly begin prep work and start shooting on December 8th at the Schmid Ranch in southwestern Colorado outside of Telluride. »

There have been multiple reports about when director Quentin Tarantino will start shooting his revenge Western The Hateful Eight, including a May report that revealed shooting will begin this November in Wyoming, and a story from earlier this month that indicated production will start in January. Today, The Denver Post reports that principal photography will begin on December 8 in southwestern Colorado.
The state of Colorado has put together a $5 million incentive for Quentin Tarantino to bring his project to the state, beating out neighboring states Utah and Wyoming. Colorado's Economic Development Commission approved the incentive package earlier this morning, with state film commissioner David Zuckerman confirming that The Hateful Eight will be shot entirely in Colorado. Here's what he had to say in a statement.
"The whole movie's going to be shot here, exteriors and interiors. They're going to build it on a ranch."
Out of the film's $44 million budget, »
Even though the movie won't go into production for another few months, Quentin Tarantino has already provided us with a good idea of who he wants to star in his next feature, The Hateful Eight. This past summer the Django Unchained writer/director hosted a very exclusive live-reading of the script, and helping him bring it to life on stage were the likes of Samuel L. Jackson, Bruce Dern, Michael Madsen, Kurt Russell, James Remar, Amber Tamblyn, Walt Goggins, and Zoe Bell. While it may very well turn out that all of those stars return to work on the film version, but now new rumors are circulating saying that the filmmaker is looking at yet another big name to join his latest cast. A source has reported to the New York Daily News that Quentin Tarantino was recently spotted at the Greenwich Hotel in New York with History of Violence »
While it was thought that the cast of Quentin Tarantino's upcoming Western The Hateful Eight will be made up of those actors who participated in his live stage reading of the screenplay, more actors have since been rumored for the movie. Earlier this summer, it was reported that the acclaimed director was targeting Oscar winner Jennifer Lawrence for an unknown role. Now comes word that Viggo Mortensen may also be up for a part in the anticipated thriller.
Quentin Tarantino is said to have been 'boisterously' discussing a role with the Lord of the Rings star out in the open, at the Greenwich Hotel in Tribeca. The pair were reading from the script, and it was overheard that Viggo Mortensen is wanted for the role of a ruthless gang leader.
The Hateful Eight will begin shooting in November for a late 2015 release. Set and shot in Wyoming, the story »
Everything we’ve heard thus far about Quentin Tarantino’s upcoming Western The Hateful Eight has painted it as another typically ambitious and wild venture from the Pulp Fiction filmmaker. And now that a planned fall 2015 release has been locked down, Tarantino is finally getting around to securing an all-star cast for the pic – though, contrary to some reports, it won’t be identical to the live reading cast, which performed the script last April.
Kurt Russell and Samuel L. Jackson (who did participate in the live reading) are expected to have roles, but Jennifer Lawrence was also reportedly in talks last month. Now, The New York Daily News is reporting that The Lord of the Rings star Viggo Mortensen is also wanted for a major part in The Hateful Eight. The publication writes that Mortensen has been eyed for the role of a “ruthless gang leader.”
Surprisingly, Mortensen and Tarantino have never worked together, »

Zoe Bell’s made a career kicking ass in the movies. Judging by the premise of her new nature gone amok thriller Freshwater, it sounds like she better be ready to add alligator wrestling to her impressive array of fighting skills.
Zoe Bell (Deathproof, Raze) and Joe Lando (“Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman”, “The Secret Circle”) headline writer-director Brandy Berry’s currently in-production Southern fried creature feature entitled Freshwater. Amy Paffrath, John Bobek, and Alison Haislip co-star.
Lake Charles in Louisiana is the idyllic spot to catch some sun and enjoy the tranquil miles of freshwater. When a group of 20-somethings meet up at their island lake house for a weekend of partying, one of the friends never shows up. As more lake visitors are yanked underwater by what seems to be some giant alligators, the screams bring the group out of the lake house. Frantically discovering their boat has drifted away, »

Now that Quentin Tarantino has decided to move full steam ahead with The Hateful Eight – even going so far as to release a teaser trailer, which you can watch here – it’s being reported by Collider that the director is looking to add some Oscar-winning talent to the cast, with Jennifer Lawrence (Silver Linings Playbook, The Hunger Games) said to be in negotiations to join the Western.
Assuming Tarantino’s rewrites of the script haven’t added any major characters, then Lawrence will presumably be wanted for either Daisy Domergue or Six Horse Judy, who were portrayed by Amber Tamblyn and Zoe Bell during the live-script read of the screenplay a few months back.
As yet, we’ve heard nothing about the official cast for The Hateful Eight, although Samuel L. Jackson, Kurt Russell, Walton Goggins, Michael Madsen, Tim Roth, Bruce Dern, James Remar, James Parks and Denis Menochet were »

Those who attended midnight screenings of Sin City: A Dame to Kill For last night were among the first to see the teaser trailer for Quentin Tarantino's new Western The Hateful Eight. Following a description of the trailer earlier this week, the full video has leaked online, which you can take a look at below.
Last month, we reported that Quentin Tarantino plans on using his cast from the live reading of the script earlier this year, which includes Bruce Dern (The Confederate), Samuel L. Jackson (The Bounty Hunter), Kurt Russell (The Hangman), Amber Tamblyn (The Prisoner), Walton Goggins (The Sheriff), Michael Madsen (The Cow Puncher) and Tim Roth (The Little Man), James Remar and Zoe Bell (Six-Horse Judy).
We also reported yesterday that Jennifer Lawrence is in negotiations to join the cast, although it isn't clear what role she may be portraying.
My, how time flies. The latest leak in Quentin Tarantino's ship is the teaser for his next movie, "The Hateful Eight." It's running before screenings of "Sin City: A Dame to Kill For," but somehow it's made its way to the Internet. Imagine that! Who would do such a thing? Guess we'll have to wait and see if anyone forces this anonymous user to choose between taking it down and facing the auteur's litigious wrath.
If you'll remember, Quentin Tarantino was threatening to shelve "The Hateful Eight" for the indefinite future after a mysterious script leak last January. In April, he held a three and a half hour live reading of the script in Los Angeles with a cast of his favorite actors. A few weeks ago, the poster for "The Hateful Eight" appeared in Empire, complete with a release date - well, a release year, anyway.

While news of of a Quentin Tarantino film going into development is always met with a level of excitement, fans of the filmmaker have gone on a bit of a rollercoaster with his newest project. Titled The Hateful Eight, Tarantino initially scrapped the film following the leak of his script to the public, before staging a live-reading of the script for charity. This was followed by the announcement that Tarantino was back in production on the feature. Now a new piece of news has emerged, as Collider reports that Tarantino is in talks with actress Jennifer Lawrence to take on a role in the film.
Lawrence herself has seen her star rise in recent years, garnering acclaim for her role in 2010′s Oscar-nominated Winter’s Bone before going on to the role of Katniss Everdeen in the Hunger Games movie franchise and Mystique in the X-Men franchise, as well as »

The cast of Quentin Tarantino’s The Hateful Eight is already extremely impressive, but if the rumours about another name being added are true, it’s about to get even better and arguably a lot more intriguing!
American Hustle and The Hunger Games star Jennifer Lawrence is said to be in talks to join the cast of the movie. There’s no word on what role she would play, and as there’s apparently only one female member of the “Hateful Eight” (Daisy Domergue, a.k.a. The Prisoner”), that could be who she’s set to star as.
However, it’s mentioned that Amber Tamblyn read for that role during a recent live reading of the screenplay, so unless Tarantino is planning on recasting, that could take Jennifer Lawrence out of the running. Another key female role – Six Horse Judy – was read by Zoe Bell, but that’s said »
