Quentin Tarantino fans are not even thinking of A Galaxy Far Far Away, as their favourite director’s new offering The Hateful Eight is due out on Christmas Day and then with a nationwide digital release planned for January 1st 2016. It will be Tarantino’s eighth film of a wonderful CV and his second western in a row after the brilliant Django Unchained.
QT has been promoting his eagerly awaited film and he surprised a few people by stating how Django and The Hateful are somehow linked.
“I hadn’t written a novel before, I thought I would just try my hand at writing this Django paperback. At the time it was called Django in White Hell. And it was basically just, you know – so I started writing – and it was basically just the stagecoach stuff, you know, all the stuff that we have in the story of the stagecoach, instead of Major Warren it was Django. And I was working on that and I hadn’t got to Minnie’s Haberdashery yet, hadn’t figured out who the other people would be there, just kind of, just setting this mystery into place.”
Expect our review of The Hateful Eight sometime in the new year.
