We reported a while ago that the “Django Unchained” helmer Quentin Tarantino is busy developing a western movie. The western will be the titled “The Hateful Eight”, with Christoph Waltz and Bruce Dern attached as the stars. Waltz is no stranger to Tarantino’s work, he won two Academy awards for lead roles in Django Unchained” and “Inglorious Basterds” respectively. They are a force to be reckoned with and hopefully we will have the privilege of seeing the duo working together again.
We have no plot details yet, but the “Hateful Eight” draws comparison to another western film in the making titled “The Magnificent Seven”. It follows a gang of American gunmen hired to protect a small Mexican town from a group of bandits led by Calvera. The film is a remake of 1960’s John Sturges which originally starred Yul Brynner, Steve McQueen, Charles Bronson, James Coburn, Robert Vaughn, Brad Dexter and Horst Buchholz.
