Cast list and synopsis revealed for Quentin Tarantino's 'The Hateful Eight'

Quentin Tarantino's films always inspire a lot of discussion and controversy, but The Hateful Eight became controversial before it even began filming. The script for the film leaked before production and Tarantino had a mini breakdown, initially scrapping the project. However, he came around eventually and decided that the film was worth doing. A teaser poster was revealed a few months back and there was a small teaser trailer attached to Sin City: A Dame to Kill For. Now, we know much more about the cast of this film and the story. Check out the press release from The Weinstein Company below to learn more about the film:

"The Weinstein Company (TWC) announced today that an incredible list of top acting talent has come on board to star in Academy Award winning writer/director Quentin Tarantino's upcoming post-Civil War western, The Hateful Eight. The Hateful Eight are: Academy Award nominee Samuel L. Jackson (Django Unchained) as Major Marquis Warren, Golden Globe nominee Kurt Russell (Escape From New York) as John "The Hangman" Ruth, Golden Globe nominee Jennifer Jason Leigh (Mrs. Parker and the Vicious Circle) as Daisy Domergue, Emmy nominee Walton Goggins (Justified) as Chris Mannix, Academy Award nominee Demian Bichir (A Better Life) as Bob, Academy Award nominee Tim Roth (Reservoir Dogs) as Oswaldo Mobray, Michael Madsen (Reservoir Dogs) as Joe Gage and Academy Award nominee Bruce Dern (Nebraska) as General Sanford Smithers. Also, Channing Tatum (Foxcatcher) has signed on for a role in the project. This will be Leigh, Bichir and Tatum's first film with Tarantino, while the rest of the cast has worked with him in the past. The Hateful Eight is the eighth feature for the filmmaker, whose last film Django Unchained earned him and Oscar for Best Original Screenplay and grossed over $425 million worldwide."

The Hateful Eight is supposed to be coming out in late 2015, and I really hope that it makes that date. This seems like the kind of violent, vicious revenge dramas that will suit Tarantino perfectly.
