“The Hateful Eight” actor Michael Madsen compares the western flick to 1992’s “Reservoir Dogs.” As many already know, Quentin Tarantino already spoke about retirement after making about ten films.
As “The Hateful Eight” (coincidentally his eighth film) brings him closer to his career’s end, he is undoubtedly full-circling to where he began as a film maker.
Tarantino debuted as a director in “Reservoir Dogs,” a heist film that never showed the actual heist.
Instead, the movie takes place in a single location where the characters would learn more about each other as the film progressed.
Since the official synopsis for “The Hateful Eight” released, fans couldn’t deny the similarities between the two films.
Madsen, who also starred in Tarantino’s first film had this to say: “You have to ask Quentin, but I do think it’s a bit of an intentional homage to ‘Reservoir Dogs,'” he explained to Entertainment Weekly . “It’s one of those pictures where nobody really knows who anyone really is.
It’s kind of a masquerade party.” As was with Tarantino’s last film “Django Unchained,” the movie takes place in the west 10 or 12 years after the Civil War.
According to Screen Rant , the film “centers around a group of strangers who get stuck in the same Wyoming establishment during a blizzard and find themselves in a plot of betrayal and deception.” The cast features Kurt Russel as John Ruth a.k.a.
The Hangman, Michael Madsen as Joe Gage a.k.a.
The Cow Puncher, Eli Roth as Oswaldo Mobray a.k.a.
The Little Man, Walton Goggins as Chris Mannix a.k.a.
The Sheriff, Samuel Jackson as Major Marquis a.k.a.
The Bounty Hunter, Jennifer Jason Leigh as Daisy Domergue a.k.a.
The Prisoner, Bruce Dern as Sanford Smithers a.k.a.
The Confederate and Demian Bichir as Bob a.k.a.
“The Hateful Eight” will be screened on 70mm in theaters by late 2015.
