Quentin Tarantino has finally locked down the filming details for his new film. The Denver Post reports that The Hateful Eight will begin filming this Denver in Colorado.

The film is set in Wyoming a few years after the Civil War and focuses on the tension among a group of people trapped after a blizzard diverts a stagecoach from its route. The group includes a competing pair of bounty hunters, a renegade Confederate soldier and a female prisoner in a saloon.

Colorado film commissioner Donald Zuckerman told the site, “The whole movie’s going to be shot here, exteriors and interiors. They’re going to build it on a ranch.”

Colorado has granted the film a $5 million incentive package to shoot in the state, which allowed it to win out ahead of Utah and Wyoming. The $44 million-budgeted film will be the biggest production in Colorado since 1969′s True Grit starring John Wayne. Preproduction is starting new with the first filming date set as December 8th.
