November 6th, 2014 by Todd Black Comments

Quentin Tarantino’s eight film The Hateful Eight now officially has a cast.

According to Coming Soon, “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) General Sanford Smithers.”

Also, Channing Tatum is in the movie as well! Here’s the official synopsis of the 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…”

The movie is set for a 2015 release.
