Kurt Russell Confirms Role in Quentin Tarantino's 'Hateful Eight' Movie


Kurt Russell


According to the 'Fast and Furious 7' actor, the western movie 'may go somewhere around the beginning of the year.'

Kurt Russell confirms his involvement in the movie version of Quentin Tarantino's "The Hateful Eight". The 63-year-old actor previously played bounty hunter John Ruth during the script's live reading at the Ace Hotel in Los Angeles April this year.

Talking to Fox affiliate in Philadelphia, Russell also gives a hint at the movie's start date. "I've got a Tarantino project called 'The Hateful Eight' that looks like it may go somewhere around the beginning of the year," the Emmy-nominated actor dished on.

"The Hateful Eight" was initially written by Tarantino for his next big-screen project, but was put on hold due to script leak. It depicts "the steadily ratcheting tension that develops after a blizzard diverts a stagecoach from its route and traps a pitiless and mistrustful group which includes a competing pair of bounty hunters, a renegade Confederate soldier, and a female prisoner in a saloon in the middle of nowhere."

The script was later brought to the stage with Samuel L. Jackson as Major Marquis Warren, Amber Tamblyn as Daisy Domergue, Walton Goggins as Chris Mannix, Michael Madsen as John Gage, Bruce Dern as General Smithers, and James Parks as O.B. Jackson. The other cast members included Zoe Bell and James Remar. No official announcement has been made, but those actors are expected to return for the movie adaptation.

Russell previously worked with Tarantino in "Death Proof" which was released as part of a double feature with Robert Rodriguez's "Planet Terror" under the collective title "Grindhouse". The actor will next appear in "Fast and Furious 7" which is due April 3, 2015 in the U.S.
