Jennifer Jason Leigh in talks for Tarantino's 'Hateful Eight'

Quentin Tarantino has tapped Jennifer Jason Leigh to play Daisy, the female lead in his much-anticipated Western, The Hateful Eight. Sources close to the production confirm reports that the Fast Times at Ridgemont High actress is in talks to join the cast, which also includes Samuel L. Jackson, Kurt Russell, Tim Roth, Michael Madsen, and Bruce Dern.

In the film, a bounty hunter and stagecoach full of shady post-Civil War characters find shelter from a blizzard in a desolate country inn, where they encounter even more suspicious figures. Daisy is the mysterious prisoner handcuffed to the rugged bounty hunter played by Russell. “When you get to hell, tell them Daisy sent you!” she screams at him—or at least she did during a live-read of the screenplay back in April.

Tarantino nearly shelved the project when copies of his script were posted on the web, but after threatening Gawker with a lawsuit, he’s now planning to start shooting in January. The Weinstein Company is planning to release the film next fall.

Tarantino-Hateful-Eight

Quentin Tarantino’s post-Civil War western, The Hateful Eight, hasn’t even been shot yet, and it’s already been through its fair share of ups and downs. When pages from the script were leaked back in January, Tarantino filed a lawsuit against Gawker and announced that he was no longer going to make the film. Then, in April, Tarantino told a crowd that he was in fact working on a new draft of the script. And most recently, at Comic-Con, Tarantino said that the film was moving forward. Now, we have proof of that.

We’ve got a look at the poster for The Hateful Eight, which will premiere in the upcoming issue of Empire. According to the poster, the film will be shot in 70-millimeter Super Cinemascope and will hit theaters in 2015.
