The Hateful Eight will be the eighth film by Quentin Tarantino, and the director is still planning on retiring after his tenth. A few years ago, the director suggested the retirement plan. Now, with his eighth film almost ready to go, he’s more serious than ever:
I don’t believe you should stay on stage until people are begging you to get off. I like the idea of leaving them wanting a bit more. I do think directing is a young man’s game and I like the idea of an umbilical cord connection from my first to my last movie. I’m not trying to ridicule anyone who thinks differently, but I want to go out while I’m still hard…I like that I will leave a ten-film filmography, and so I’ve got two more to go after this.

So far, info on the cast for Quentin Tarantino‘s The Hateful Eight has been little more than speculation. While we have a good idea that actors such as Samuel L.
