Here’s the first official promo image of cast members Samuel L. Jackson, Jennifer Jason Leigh, and Kurt Russell in Quentin Tarantino’s The Hateful Eight. They appear on the cover of this week’s Entertainment Weekly which features a behind the scenes look at Tarantino’s new western.
The film scales down from Tarantino’s last two films, the revisionist revenge epics Inglourious Basterds and Django Unchained, going for something more intimate if no less violent, like a stick of dynamite in a shoebox. “For me it has more of a Western Iceman Cometh kind of vibe about it,” says Tarantino. The film also takes a belt from the bottle of the director’s first film Reservoir Dogs. “A bunch of guys in a room who can’t trust each other,” he says. “That wasn’t a marching order when I sat down to write the script, but pretty quickly I realized this is kind of a nice coming-full-circle.”
Other cast members include Tim Roth, Michael Madsen, Walton Goggins, Bruce Dern and Demián Bichir.
