Despite an early script leak, lawsuit and rumors of a mole in the camp, Quentin Tarantino's new movie The Hateful Eight will begin shooting in January 2015, with the Weinstein Company distributing the movie. A release date is due to be set for fall next year.

Though Weinstein's involvement may seem fairly ordinary, the release of The Hateful Eight will be historic in that it will be shot on 65mm film and will have the widest 70mm release in over twenty years. In a unique distribution plan, the movie will also have 35mm releases and DCP formats.

Richard Gladstein, Stacey Sher and Shannon McIntosh will produce the movie with Bob and Harvey Weinstein executive producing, along with G. Mac Brown. It is the latest in a string of collaborations between the Weinsteins and Tarantino, from Reservoir Dogs through to Django Unchained.

Bob and Harvey Weinstein, TWC Co-Chairmen said: "We are incredibly excited to begin production on The Hateful Eight, as we know this picture will be as innovative, brash and of course fun as all Quentin projects prior. There is, quite simply, no other filmmaker like him, and we are as proud as ever to continue this partnership that started over twenty years ago."

Rumored to star Tim Roth, Samuel L. Jackson, Bruce Dern and Kurt Russell, The Hateful Eight is set in post-Civil War Wyoming and follows a group of bounty hunters trying to find shelter during a blizzard. Likened to a "tense stage play," the movie sees the gang getting caught up in a plot of betrayal and deception.

Last week we reported that Jennifer Lawrence was in talks with Tarantino for a major role on the movie, though her casting is yet to be announced.
