Quentin Tarantino is known for caring about the numbering of his films. Going by his own numbering, which counts Kill Bill as a single movie, The Hateful Eight is his eighth film. Has he ever said whether he intentionally picked a name with “eight” in the title, or waited until his eighth film to make that movie, or if it is just a coincidence?

Coincidence seems unlikely, given his attention to detail and use of references throughout his films. But as a second part to the question, if he did title the movie in honor of it being his eighth film, did he also write the script to fit that number in the title?
