Exciting news for Tarantino fans, The Weinstein Co. have added a panel for the highly anticipated revenge western The Hateful Eight to San Diego Comic-Con.

The film’s writer-director Quentin Tarantino and some yet-to-be determined cast members are expected to make an appearance.

The panel will take place in a Hall H panel on Saturday, July 11, at 1:30 p.m. and will include a discussion with Tarantino and the cast about the production, its upcoming roadshow release, the glorious 70mm format in which it will be released and an exclusive premiere of footage from the film.

The panel will be moderated by Chris Hardwick of Nerdist.

Other exciting panels at this year’s Comic-Con in San Diego are the Seth Meyers-moderated Game of Thrones panel with cast members Alfie Allen, John Bradley, Gwendoline Christie, Natalie Dormer, Sophie Turner, Maisie Williams and more, the Star Wars: The Force Awakens with Lucasfilm’s Kathleen Kennedy, J.J. Abrams, Lawrence Kasdan and “surprise guests”, and Warner Bros.’ big DC Cinematic Universe panel featuring Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Suicide Squad, Wonder Woman and Justice League.

There are also panels with casts of The Walking Dead and its spinoff Fear The Walking Dead, Ash vs Evil Dead and The Last Man on Earth. Neil DeGrasse Tyson and Seth MacFarlane will be on hand for a Q&A on Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey and Denis Leary, Elizabeth Gillies, Elaine Hendrix, John Corbett, Robert Kelly and more will be showing face for a TV block of their upcoming FX comedy Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll. Needless to say, Tarantino and friends will only add to the insanity.

The Hateful Eight, starring Samuel L. Jackson, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Kurt Russell, Walton Goggins, Bruce Dern, Demian Bichir, Tim Roth and Michael Madsen, is set to hit theaters in 70mm in limited release Christmas Day, followed by a two-week roadshow leading up to the January 8, 2016 release.
