Ever since the original script leaked for Quentin Tarantino’s The Hateful Eight, there have been doubts about the film ever making it to the big screen. But after a poster and a theater-released teaser, it looks like Tarantino’s post-Civil War western is perhaps more difficult to kill than some thought. And now, The Weinstein Company has officially signed on to distribute the film.
The Weinstein Company announced its partnership with Tarantino along with the news that The Hateful Eight—which will be shot on 65mm film and have the widest 70mm film release in more than 20 years, according to a press release—will begin principal photography in January with a domestic release slated for the fall of 2015.
The Weinstein Company previously partnered with Tarantino on 1992’s Reservoir Dogs and 2012’s Django Unchained.
