The Weinstein Company released the first trailer for Quentin Tarantino's much-anticipated next movie, ‘The Hateful Eight,’ on Wednesday.
This post-Civil War tale looks at a group of bounty hunters taking shelter in a lodge during a massive blizzard.
The main action focuses on a bounty hunter (Kurt Russell) and his attempt to bring in a wanted criminal (Jennifer Jason Leigh) to be hanged. They end up snowbound in a cabin with six other people played by Samuel L. Jackson, Tim Roth, Michael Madsen, Demian Bichir, Bruce Dern and Walton Goggins.
The movie is produced by Richard N. Gladstein, Stacey Sher and Shannon McIntosh. Harvey Weinstein, Bob Weinstein and Georgia Kacandes are executive producing, and Coco Francini and William Paul Clark are associate producing. Spaghetti-western legend Ennio Morricone (‘The Good, The Bad and The Ugly’) is expected to provide an original score.
‘The Hateful Eight’ opens with a limited release on Christmas Day, and wide release Jan. 8.
