Tarantino Praises Wyoming Location

Tarantino

Django Unchained continues to draw considerable attention at box offices around the country, and Wyoming tourism interests are quick to point out the exposure of the state’s landscape certainly won’t hurt that industry in the months ahead.  However, how did those associated with the film feel about the experience?  Director Quentin Tarantino calls Wyoming “a fantastic place to shoot…it’s beautiful country.”  He quickly adds, “If you’re doing a western or anything that requires you to be in this beautiful, yet rugged terrain, it’s just a glorious place to go. It just screams ‘America.’” Tarantino said the script’s call for snow is what drew the movie company to Jackson Hole, and with the rugged Tetons in the background, he says (in his words) “we just shot the heck out of them – it was just beautiful.”  State officials say they also heard from the company about how accommodating the community was during the shoot adding to a positive experience all around.  With such conversation around Hollywood, Wyoming Film Office Manager Michelle Howard says her bureau is already seeing that impact from the folks in the film industry who believe Wyoming must be a good place to film.
