Listed as one of the most anticipated original films of 2015, director and screenwriter Quentin Tarantino’s 10th feature-length motion picture “The Hateful Eight” has made a lot of headlines. The award-winning film auteur cited unusual sources of inspiration in a recent ‘Deadline’ interview.

“It’s less inspired by one Western movie than by Bonanza, The Virginian, High Chaparral,” Tarantino said to Deadline.

“Twice per season, those shows would have an episode where a bunch of outlaws would take the lead characters hostage. They would come to the Ponderosa and hold everybody hostage, or to go Judge Garth’s place – Lee J. Cobb played him – in The Virginian and take hostages. There would be a guest star like David Carradine, Darren McGavin, Claude Akins, Robert Culp, Charles Bronson or James Coburn. I don’t like that storyline in a modern context, but I love it in a Western, where you would pass halfway through the show to find out if they were good or bad guys, and they all had a past that was revealed. “I thought, ‘What if I did a movie starring nothing but those characters? No heroes, no Michael Landons. Just a bunch of nefarious guys in a room, all telling backstories that may or may not be true. Trap those guys together in a room with a blizzard outside, give them guns, and see what happens.’ ”

“The Hateful Eight” is scheduled for release ┬áin 2015 in North America in theaters.
