HATEFUL EIGHT Comic-Con Panel Recap: Ennio Morricone’s Score, New Poster, More

     July 11, 2015


The fact that The Hateful Eight, Quentin Tarantino’s hugely anticipated second Western, is even coming out is a bit of a miracle. Most people know about the controversy surrounding the leaked script, which nearly rendered the project unfilmable in Tarantino’s eyes, but thankfully, the iconoclast filmmaker decided to go ahead with the project. And after seeing the limited footage that was screened at Hall H, I’m ecstatic that the Django Unchained-helming madman went ahead with the film, as it similarly recalls a detailed, glowing view of a genre that has gone largely untouched, save a major masterwork like Unforgiven. Regardless, Tarantino and the cast that was on-hand for the panel, which included Kurt Russell, Tim Roth, Walton Goggins, Demian Bichir, Bruce Dern, Michael Madsen, and Jennifer Jason Leigh, seemed revved-up and excited while discussing the working process of making the film, the writing of the script, getting into character, and all that went into what will likely prove to be one of the most remarkable films of 2015.
