Weinstein Company Confirmed To Distribute Quentin Tarantino’s ‘The Hateful Eight'; Filming Begins In January
Following a long delay due to a much documented script leak (and some legal wranglings owing to said leak), Quentin Tarantino recently confirmed that he will be making ‘The Hateful Eight’ his next film. And with that being the case, today we hear that The Weinstein Company are once again joining forces with the Academy Award-winning writer/director on his much anticipated feature, which will be shot on 65mm film and have the widest 70mm film release in over twenty years. This unique distribution plan will also feature 35mm and DCP formats following the initial and exclusive 70mm release.
Principal photography will begin on ‘The Hateful Eight’ in January with a domestic release slated for the fall of 2015. The film marks a continuation of the long-standing relationship between the celebrated filmmaker and the Weinsteins, who have collaborated on all of Quentin Tarantino’s films, from ‘Reservoir Dogs’ through ‘Django Unchained.’
Miramax send word that they’ve acquired all US distribution rights to ‘Mr. Holmes’ and will partner with Roadside Attractions on domestic theatrical distribution of the film. From director Bill Condon, ‘Mr. Holmes’ is about a retired Sherlock Holmes (Ian McKellen) and is based on Mitch Cullin’s novel ‘A Slight Trick of the Mind.’ The film is the second collaboration between Condon and McKellen, who previously worked together on ‘Gods and Monsters.’ Written and directed by Condon, ‘Gods and Monsters’ won the best screenplay at the Oscars and earned McKellen a best actor nomination.
Set in 1947, ‘Mr. Holmes’ follows an aging Sherlock Holmes (Ian McKellen) as he returns from a journey to Japan, where, in search of a rare plant with powerful restorative qualities, he has witnessed the devastation of nuclear warfare. Now, in his remote seaside Sussex farmhouse, Holmes faces the end of his days with only the company of his housekeeper (Laura Linney) and her young son, Roger. Grappling with the diminishing powers of his mind, Holmes comes to rely upon the boy as he revisits the circumstances of the unsolved case that forced him into retirement. The additional cast includes Hattie Morahan, Patrick Kennedy, Hiroyuki Sanada, Roger Allam, Philip Davis, Frances de la Tour and Milo Parker, who plays Roger, the housekeeper’s son. Look out for the film in 2015.
