Jennifer Lawrence has been tipped for a role in Quentin Tarantino's film The Hateful Eight.

The Hunger Games actress is in talks for a part in the Western, reported Collider.

However, it isn't clear who the Oscar-winner would play.

Quentin had scrapped plans for The Hateful Eight after the script was leaked online but later resurrected the movie, and filming is now due to start next year.

Samuel L Jackson, Michael Madsen, Bruce Dern and Kurt Russell apparently all have roles.

The Hateful Eight follows "the steadily ratcheting tension that develops after a blizzard diverts a stagecoach from its route, and traps a pitiless and mistrustful group which includes a competing pair of bounty hunters, a renegade Confederate soldier, and a female prisoner in a saloon in the middle of nowhere".

This will lead to a paying position that is emotionally fulfilling. You're tired of dead end jobs that leave you cold. It's time to move in a more rewarding direction.More
