The Full Cast for ‘The Hateful Eight’ Arrives…

hateful-eight-posterTarantino’s 8th film and second Western begins its shoot…

A couple of days ago (23/1/14) shooting began on Tarantino’s latest project The Hateful Eight. Now I don’t know about you but I’m not extremely excited for this as I haven’t seen a Tarantino movie since Kill Bill which I thought was truly excellent. Since then he has sort of gone of the boil a little bit in my eyes. However, I’m always up for seeing a new Western and I did have fun with Django Unchained a couple of years back.

Here’s a plot description for the new movie:

‘In The Hateful Eight, set six or eight or twelve years after the Civil War, a stagecoach hurtles through the wintry Wyoming landscape. The passengers, bounty hunter John Ruth (Russell) and his fugitive Daisy Domergue (Leigh), race towards the town of Red Rock where Ruth, known in these parts as “The Hangman,” will bring Domergue to justice. Along the road, they encounter two strangers: Major Marquis Warren (Jackson), a black former union soldier turned infamous bounty hunter, and Chris Mannix (Goggins), a southern renegade who claims to be the town’s new Sheriff. Losing their lead on the blizzard, Ruth, Domergue, Warren and Mannix seek refuge at Minnie’s Haberdashery, a stagecoach stopover on a mountain pass. When they arrive at Minnie’s, they are greeted not by the proprietor but by four unfamiliar faces. Bob (Bichir), who’s taking care of Minnie’s while she’s visiting her mother, is holed up with Oswaldo Mobray (Roth), the hangman of Red Rock, cow-puncher Joe Gage (Madsen), and Confederate General Sanford Smithers (Dern). As the storm overtakes the mountainside stopover, our eight travelers come to learn they may not make it to Red Rock after all…’

And here is the full cast list for you to look over. There are a lot of familiar names like Jackson, Russell as well as others like Channing Tatum on there. I’m particularly interested in seeing Tim Roth, Zoë Bell and Michael Madsen return to the world of Tarantino’s films.

Here’s the full list:

Samuel L. Jackson
Kurt Russell
Jennifer Jason Leigh
Walton Goggins
Demian Bichir
Tim Roth
Michael Madsen
Bruce Dern
Channing Tatum
James Parks
Dana Gourrier
Zoë Bell
Gene Jones
Keith Jefferson
Lee Horsley
Craig Stark
Belinda Owin

  1. Very curious to see Demián Bichir and Channing Tatum in a Tarantino movie.

    1. Yeah they’re interesting picks for sure, fingers crossed he has some sort of really interesting and unusual role for them both.

      1. Yes. Demián needs it the most. Despite the Oscar nominations, he’s been wasting away in thankless roles for years.

  2. Yes the cast is awesome, but for me a Tarantino release is an event. I really do cherish his filmmaking even if he does actually do mostly the same thing each and every time. (Here come the haters. . . .) Lol!

    1. Haha no I know what you mean, he does recycle himself a little for each film now.

      1. But even recycled Tarantino elements are far superior filming techniques than a lot of other fluff out there! 🙂

        1. Haha that’s very true and I do always look forward to seeing what he puts out next.

  3. That’s one awesome cast.

    1. It’s not too shabby is it!

  4. I AM VERY EXCITED!

    1. Haha it’s a cool cast!
