21 Jump Street and Magic Mike star Channing Tatum has joined the cast of Quentin Tarantino’s upcoming film Hateful Eight, along with Demián Bichir, an Oscar-nominated actor from Mexico probably still most recognized for his role in Showtime’s Weeds as a drug cartel boss and boyfriend of Mary Louise Parker’s character.

The Weinstein Company confirmed the lineup for the 2015 Western that is “set six or eight or twelve years after the Civil War” in “the wintry Wyoming landscape,” according to a press release.

The Hateful Eight will feature some familiar faces from the Tarantino oeuvre, including Samuel L. Jackson (of course), Kurt Russell, Tim Roth and Michael Madsen. The film also stars Tarantino newcomers (but seasoned veterans of film) Jennifer Jason Leigh and Bruce Dern.
