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. Jackson, Kurt Russell, Tim Roth, Michael Madsen, and Walton Goggins will have roles in the film, thanks in part to their participation in the live-read of the script, nothing has been officially revealed. Now for The Hateful Eight Jennifer Jason Leigh is set as the first official cast member. She’ll play Daisy Domergue, a woman wanted for murder who begins the film in the clutches of a bounty hunter.

Quentin Tarantino loves telling stories out of sequence. From his very first film, the director has written and edited his films with some pieces out of order, creating dramatic irony, shock value, heightened drama and more. He also makes the audience engage more with the film as we piece together the hows and whys of questions like when did Mr. Orange meet Mr. White, how does Vincent Vega know Mia Wallace, how did O-Ren gain power, etc. Viewing a Tarantino film multiple times then becomes essential, simply because once you know how things play out, you begin to see the layering he’s created throughout.
Designer Noah Daniel Smith knows this. He appreciates it. But he also appreciates how awesome it can look when you put the scenes in order. Two years after making a chronological timeline of Pulp Fiction, Smith has now put Kill Bill in chronological order for a new poster. Check out the full Kill Bill Timeline below. Read More »
