Jackson Hole ranch and Grand Teton National Park site of Quentin Tarantino shoot
Uncategorized | February 18, 2012
Director Quentin Tarantino wrapped filming for parts of his latest movie, “Django Unchained,” in Jackson Hole last week, with plenty of shots of snow, the Tetons and even elk.
The director decided to shoot five scenes instead of an originally planned three at the private Bar BC Ranch on Spring Gulch Road, Mary Jane Ashmore, the ranch’s marketing manager, said.
In all, the production spent more than $500,000, rented 100 rooms at Snow King Resort for about a week and also filmed in Grand Teton National Park.
Based on a 1966 Italian-made spaghetti Western, Tarantino’s feature is about a slave-turned bounty hunter, starring Jamie Foxx in the title role. Leonardo DiCaprio, Samuel L. Jackson, Kurt Russell and Sacha Baron Cohen also have roles.
Tarantino’s production company hired several residents for crew work, Michelle Howard of the Wyoming Film Office said. The company also brought in veteran movie horse wranglers Robin and Kate Wiltshire from Turtle Ranch near Dubois.
The production company spent more than $500,000 in Wyoming, which qualifies it for a cash rebate of up to 15 percent of those expenses, [Howard] said. The state’s Film Industry Financial Incentive program requires a production spend $200,000 or more to qualify for the rebate.
