"We all know who's the toughest of the bunch," Kurt Russell added, pointing at Leigh. "There's no doubt about that."

The Hateful Eight, opening Christmas Day, is set "on the edge of the American frontier, sometime after the Civil War," and follows eight strangers who are stranded together due to a blizzard, only to discover they are mixed up in a deadly plot of deception and betrayal.

Leigh is basically the only girl in the Western and Russell plays a bounty hunter with a bad reputation, who's planning to hang her character.

"I never felt like anybody was holding back with me or treating me differently," Leigh said. "I really just got to be one of the guys."

The film includes many of Tarantino's favorite actors to collaborate with, including Russell (Death Proof), Michael Madsen (Reservoir Dogs, Kill Bill: Vol. 1, Kill Bill: Vol 2), Bruce Dern (Django Unchained), Walton Goggins (Django Unchained) and of course, Samuel L. Jackson. This marks Jackson's fifth Tarantino film after Django Unchained, Kill Bill: Vol 2, Jackie Brown and Pulp Fiction.
