Samuel L. Jackson, who will play the character Major Marquis Warren in Quentin Tarantino’s latest movie, “The Hateful Eight,” has shared his interesting experience on the production of the film.
According to an interview with Collider, Jackson shared that the cast and crew were put on ice to produce an authentic shivering effect, “It was taxing, in a very interesting way, because we were in the snow, at first, and then we get inside this room. Quentin shot on a refrigerated set, and it was 30 degrees, every day, in there. We were miserable in the environment. You could see our breath, but the stuff that we were doing was amazing.”
The actor also reportedly said that they are anxious to see the movie as he describes the work as “incredible,” “We would finish doing a scene and look at each other and just grin like, ‘This is incredible.’ And we may be blowing smoke up our own asses, but I hope it’s as good as we felt like it was when we were doing it,” the report shared.
Entertainment Weekly released the first look of the movie recently, describing it as Tarantino’s “bloody new production” and the “meanest, grittiest and deadliest movie of the year” which will feature eight Western post-Civil war bounty hunters trapped together in a shelter during a blizzard. Tarantino said that it will have the same vibe as “The Iceman Cometh” with the story’s background slightly similar to his first movie, “Reservoir Dogs.” Jackson will reportedly have an epic monologue on the film.
Aside from Jackson, it will also star Kurt Russell, Tim Roth, Michael Madsen, Bruce Dern, Walton Goggins, Demin Bichir and Jennifer Jason Leigh.
The movie produced by The Weinsten Co. was originally shelved after Tarantino filed a lawsuit against Gawker on January 2014, for posting a link to his script but he later withdrew the complaint, Hollywood Reporter shares. It will be released later this year.
