Jennifer Jason Leigh will star as the female lead in Quentin Tarantino’s upcoming HATEFUL EIGHT. The western is set in post-Civil War America, when a group of stranded stagecoach passengers – two bounty hunters, a Confederate general, an Englishman, a Frenchman and a female prisoner – are stranded in a blizzard and take refuge at Minnie’s Haberdashery. Leigh has been cast as Daisy Domergue, a woman wanted for murder and sentenced to hang.
Leigh has recently appeared in the Allen Ginsberg/Jack Kerouac biopic Kill Your Darlings, as well as dramedy The Spectacular Now and Shira Piven’s Welcome to Me with James Marsden and Kristen Wiig. Next up, Leigh has signed on to the horror sequel Amityville: The Awakening with Bella Thorne.
