Tarantino On How 'The Hateful Eight' Compares to 'Reservoir Dogs'

JamesArthurArmstrong JamesArthurArmstrong This past week saw the first official images from Quentin Tarantino's anticipated new film, The Hateful Eight. The director also spoke about how his new movie compares with his first movie, Reservoir Dogs.

“For me it has more of a Western Iceman Cometh kind of vibe about it,” Tarantino told Entertainment Weekly. The Hateful Eight is said to be a small-scale, intimate western taking place mostly in one location, and the director goes on to compare it to his debut movie. "It follows a bunch of guys in a room who can’t trust each other. That wasn’t a marching order when I sat down to write the script, but pretty quickly I realised this is kind of a nice coming-full-circle,” said the director.

Later on in the interview, Tarantino gave his opinion about his place in the industry. “Hollywood has changed a whole lot, and if I had to change with it, I wouldn’t even make it to 60. I signed up for one film industry and I’m not signing up for the other one. That’s not why I got into this.” He adds, “I want there to be a connection to the young artist’s spirit that was there in Reservoir Dogs. I don’t want to be one of those old-man directors; I want there to be some form of aesthetic connection, a vitality, from my first film to whatever is my last film.”

The Hateful Eight is scheduled for release later this year. Tarantino wrote and directs the movie, which stars Samuel L. Jackson as Major Marquis Warren, Kurt Russell as John “The Hangman” Ruth, Jennifer Jason Leigh as Daisy Domergue, Walton Goggins as Chris Mannix, Demian Bichir as Bob, Tim Roth as Oswaldo Mobray, Michael Madsen as Joe Gage, Bruce Dern as General Sanford Smithers, and Channing Tatum in a small role.
