Kurt Russell Claims ‘The Hateful Eight’ Could Shoot In Early 2015


Quentin Tarantino’s highly-anticipated and sometimes cancelled Hateful Eight is currently alive and well. Production information has been kept under tight wraps, but one of the film’s long-rumored stars seems to have essentially confirmed Tarantino’s plans to bring his latest Western to life.

This week, Kurt Russell teased connection to Quentin Tarantino’s Hateful Eight while talking about future projects with Philadelphia’s Fox 59. He was doing an interview about The Battered Bastards of Baseball (out now on Netflix), when he dropped the following tidbit of previously unreleased information:

“I’ve got a Tarantino project called The Hateful Eight that looks like it may go somewhere around the beginning of the year.”

This is not the first time Kurt Russell has been connected to Quentin Tarantino’s Hateful Eight, though Tarantino has yet to speak on the matter. The legendary actor took part in a live reading of the film’s first draft, which leaked online around the beginning of 2014, in LA earlier this year.

That is literally all the information we have learned about The Hateful Eight since the live reading in the spring. If production is really six to eight months away it stands to reason that a handful of announcements will begin to surface as we head into the fall.
