The Hateful Eight

In this episode of Film Stories with Simon Brew, two films that went through some tough physical production.

Mind you, Quentin Tarantino’s second western, The Hateful Eight, nearly didn’t get as far as production. A script leak, a law suit, Tarantino dropping the project? That was all before filming began, and the idea of shooting on location in freezing cold conditions suddenly seemed a bit… taxing.

The location shoot for Romancing The Stone sequel The Jewel Of The Nile was taxing in the other direction. Piping hit temperatures, a change in personnel behind the camera, and a co-star who was contractually obliged to appear? Yep, this one was a bit of a saga.

Stories of both are told in this episode.
