Quentin Tarantino is set to bring his soon to film western “The Hateful Eight” to Colorado.
Colorado film commissioner Donald Zuckerman tells The Denver Post: “The whole movie’s going to be shot here, exteriors and interiors. They’re going to build it on a ranch.”
Set in a blizzard-engulfed Wyoming after the Civil War, the story follows a group of dangerous people trapped in a saloon after a blizzard diverts a stagecoach from its route.
The project sports a $44 million budget and was granted a $5 million incentive package by the state. It’s also the biggest production to film in Colorado since the original “True Grit” in 1969.
Pre-production is already underway ahead of filming beginning on December 8th. The project will take a break over the holiday, then resume production in 2015.
