This distribution plan will also feature 35mm and DCP formats following the initial and exclusive 70mm release.
Principal photography will begin in January with a domestic release slated for autumn 2015.
Richard Gladstein, Stacey Sher and Shannon McIntosh will produce the film and executive producers are Bob and Harvey Weinstein along with G. Mac Brown.
The collaboration marks and ongoing relationship between Tarantino and the Weinsteins, who have worked on all of his films, from Reservoir Dogs to Django Unchained.
In a joint statement, TWC co-chairmen Bob and Harvey Weinstein said: “We are incredibly excited to begin production on The Hateful Eight, as we know this picture will be as innovative, brash and of course fun as all Quentin projects prior.
“There is, quite simply, no other filmmaker like him, and we are as proud as ever to continue this partnership that started over 20 years ago.”
