Quentin Tarantino has begun shooting his Western “The Hateful Eight” in Telluride, Colo., for The Weinstein Co., which is planning a release this year.

James Parks, Dana Gourrier, Zoe Bell, Gene Jones, Keith Jefferson, Lee Horsley, Craig Stark and Belinda Owino have joined the cast.

The official cast list was unveiled in November when Channing Tatum and Demian Bichir came on board.

Bichir plays one of the eight in the “Bob” role. The other seven roles in the post-Civil War western: Samuel L. Jackson as Major Marquis Warren, Kurt Russell as John “The Hangman” Ruth, Jennifer Jason Leigh as Daisy Domergue, Walton Goggins as Chris Mannix, Tim Roth as Oswaldo Mobray, Michael Madsen as Joe Gage and Bruce Dern as General Sanford Smithers.

It’s Tarantino’s eighth feature and the follow-up to “Django Unchained,” which grossed over $425 million worldwide. The story is set on a wintry Wyoming landscape as a storm overtakes a stagecoach on a mountainside stopover.

Producers are long-time Tarantino collaborators Richard N. Gladstein, Stacey Sher and Shannon McIntosh. Harvey Weinstein, Bob Weinstein and G. Mac Brown are the executive producers, and Coco Francini and William Paul Clark are associate producers.
