The “will they or won’t they” dynamic of Quentin Tarantino and his latest film, The Hateful Eight is on the upswing. After much turmoil, the project is reportedly set to begin shooting this december in Colorado according to The Denver Post.
The Hateful Eight will take place in snowy Wyoming a few years after the Civil War and focuses on the tension among a group of people trapped after a blizzard diverts a stagecoach from its route. The group includes a competing pair of bounty hunters, a renegade Confederate soldier and a female prisoner in a saloon.
Colorado film commissioner Donald Zuckerman says,
“The whole movie’s going to be shot here, exteriors and interiors. They’re going to build it on a ranch.”
The Denver Post also reports that Colorado granted a $5 million incentive package to the production which in the end made them choose the state over Utah and Wyoming.
Shooting will begin on December 8 following by a holiday break then it will resume production in 2015.
