The Hateful Eight: Meet Quentin Tarantino’s Cast of Characters

by at .  Updated at . Comments

We’ve seen The Hateful Eight behind-the-scenes pictures, but today we have a true treat for Quentin Tarantino fans -- the first photos from the writer-director’s next Western. And to think it almost wasn’t.

After the script was leaked for The Hateful Eight, Tarantino decided to scrap the project. But, we are so thrilled that he changed his mind and decided that this film will be the follow-up to Django Unchained.

The cast is impressive and the story fits the ensemble like a glove. As you see in the first still below of the cast (which debuted in Entertainment Weekly), Kurt Russell, Samuel L. Jackson, Tim Roth, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Michael Madsen, Walton Goggins, Demian Bichir and Bruce Dern are more than ready to get their Western on!

The story follows this Hateful Eight whose paths collide years after the Civil War when a Wyoming blizzard forces all of our characters to seek refuge in an establishment called Minnie’s Haberdashery, a stagecoach rest stop, if you will. Think they’ll all get along?

Look for The Hateful Eight sometime before the end of 2015. Until then, check out QT's latest and watch Django Unchained online.
