Quentin Tarantino‘s $42 million, 49-day production of The Hateful Eight will begin in December in Colorado, Westword reports.

At The Dissolve, Matt Singer connects Gone Girl‘s depiction of marriages with the rest of David Fincher‘s filmography:
Men and women in David Fincher movies often try to taste the simple life; it almost never works out. Even in films where relationships play a relatively minor role, the backstories almost always involve painful dissolutions. Michael Douglas’ Nicholas Van Orton from The Game is divorced; so is Jodie Foster’s Panic Room character Meg Altman, who moves into the New York brownstone that serves as the film’s setting after her husband leaves her for a much younger woman. The entire film springs from that breakup—as does tech entrepreneur Mark Zuckerberg’s entire empire in The Social Network. When he’s dumped on a date by his girlfriend Erica (Rooney Mara), Zuckerberg (Jesse Eisenberg) begins creating a website for revenge, one that will let fellow Harvard students vote on female classmates’ physical beauty. The site, Facemash, eventually morphs into Facebook, bringing Zuckerberg wealth, fame, popularity, and a new girlfriend. But at the end of the movie, he’s still alone, waiting for a response to a friend request from Erica. The finale of The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo provides a similarly unhappy one for its antisocial hacker character, as Lisbeth Salander (Mara) watches from afar as the man she’s fallen in love with, journalist Mikael Blomkvist (Daniel Craig), reunites with an old girlfriend.
