There's a significant progress from "The Hateful Eight", Quentin Tarantino's latest movie that almost did not make it. A teaser trailer from the super secretive project will be attached to the release of Robert Rodriguez's "Sin City: A Dame to Kill For" next week.
It's curious since no footage for the film has even been shot yet. However, a poster for the movie was released late last month in the form of an animated horse-drawn carriage with blood-like trails. It's most likely that the upcoming teaser is either a CGI work or footage shot specifically for this trailer.
Filming will only begin next year, starring Samuel L. Jackson, Bruce Dern and Kurt Russell among others. Tarantino and his crew are scouting for locations at the moment. There is no release date for the movie yet.
"The Hateful Eight" follows 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.
Back in January, a script of the film leaked online, forcing Tarantino to have a setback. "I'm very, very depressed," he told Deadline at that time. "I finished a script, a first draft, and I didn't mean to shoot it until next winter, a year from now. I gave it to six people, and apparently it's gotten out today." He threatened to abandon the project before changing his heart and deciding to proceed.
