Quentin Tarantino appears to have gone to great lengths to recreate a stormy Wyoming landscape in his latest movie The Hateful Eight - refrigerating the set to the extent that the actors could see their own breath.

Samuel L. Jackson, who plays Major Marquis Warren, a former union soldier turned bounty hunter, spoke to Collider about shooting the movie and says the cast still text each other sharing stories about the "incredible" film.

 "All of us are so anxious to see this movie because, every day, the work was incredible," he said, "It was taxing, in a very interesting way, because we were in the snow, at first, and then we get inside this room. Quentin shot on a refrigerated set, and it was 30 degrees, every day, in there. We were miserable in the environment. You could see our breath, but the stuff that we were doing was amazing. We would finish doing a scene and look at each other and just grin like, "This is incredible." And we may be blowing smoke up our own asses, but I hope it's as good as we felt like it was when we were doing it.
