No one said this job was supposed to be easy.
Quentin Tarantino filmed his latest Western, The Hateful Eight, in 70 mm Panavision so it should look beautiful on the big screen. He’s hired Ennio Morricone, composer of the scores for A Fistful of Dollars, For a Few Dollars More, The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly, for the ultimate throwback feel. By all accounts The Hateful Eight looks like it will be an interesting ride.
Kurt Russell plays another tough-guy role. We’ll hopefully add John “The Hangman” Ruth to the likes of his classic characters Burton and Plissken. A few years after the Civil War, Ruth is transporting a fugitive named Daisy (Jennifer Jason Leigh) to a town called Red Rock. After picking up a bounty hunter (Samuel L. Jackson) along the way, they hole up in a log cabin to seek shelter from a snowstorm, and learn the place is filled with various other baddies: The Sheriff (Walton Goggins), The Mexican (Demian Bichir), The Little Man (Tim Roth), The Cow Puncher (Michael Madsen), and the Confederate (Bruce Dern). Who will get out alive?
