Tatum's role is being kept secret but Oscar nominee Jackson will play Major Marquis Warren, alongside Jennifer Jason Leigh as fugitive Daisy Domergue, Michael Madsen as cowboy Joe Gage, Tim Roth as hangman Oswaldo Mobray and Bruce Dern as General Sanford Smithers.
Walton Goggins is on board as Chris Mannix, a "southern renegade" claiming to be a sherriff,, while Demian Bichir and Kurt Russell have taken on the roles of men's clothing store operator Bob and bounty hunter John 'The Hangman' Ruth respectively, The Weinstein Company confirmed in an announcement.
The film follows a bounty hunter who is caught in a Wyoming blizzard with his female prisoner in the aftermath of the Civil War. Holed up in a stagecoach stopover with a group of other passengers until the storm passes,"coincidences stop looking like coincidences, enemies become allies, secrets escape and lots of living things get dead."
Many of the cast assumed their roles for a live reading of Tarantino's script in April, although there are some changes (Jason Leigh and Bichir replace Amber Tamblyn and Bichir and Denis Menochet). Recent rumours that Jennifer Lawrence was taking part appear to have been speculation.
Tarantino direct The Hateful Eight, with Richard N Gladstein, Stacey Sher, Shannon McIntosh and Harvey Weinstein producing.
Shooting is scheduled to begin in Telluride, Colorado in January before a probable December 2015 release.
"This picture will be as innovative, brush and of course fun as all Quentin projects prior," the Weinsteins said in a statement. "There is, quite simply, no other filmmaker like him, and we are as proud as ever to continue the partnership that started over twenty years ago."

The film will be Tarantino's eighth movie and follows 2012's Django Unchained, which won him an Oscar for Best Original Screenplay and took more than $450 million at the global box office.
Earlier this year, a script leak almost saw The Hateful Eight scrapped after Tarantino was left "depressed" by the betrayal. One of six people he trusted allegedly let their agent read it before "passing it to everyone in Hollywood".
"I finished a script, a first draft, and I didn't mean to shoot it until next winter," the 50-year-old told Deadline.
"I don't know how these f***ing agents work, but I'm not making this next. I'm done. I'll move on to the next thing. I've got ten more where that came from."
Confirmed as back in business at Comic Con this summer, The Hateful Eight will be presented in 70mm, much to movie fans' delight.Reuse content
