He also suggested that the script would be changed substantially in its last part, or what he called the fifth chapter. "The chapter five here will not be the chapter five later so this will be the only time it is seen, ever," he said.

Other actors included as Confederate General Smithers, as a bounty hunter named John Ruth and as his prisoner Daisy Domergue. "We've been rehearsing for the last three days," said Tarantino.

"The Hateful Eight" was meant to be Tarantino's next Western movie after the successful "". When the new project's script leaked back in January, the director said that he had "no desire to make it" and told Deadline that he was "very, very depressed."
