Tarantino film gets permit to use Telluride ranch

The Associated Press

DENVER (AP) San Miguel County Commissioners have approved a special-use permit to let Quentin Tarantino use a ranch near Telluride to shoot the upcoming film "The Hateful Eight."

The Denver Post reports (http://goo.gl/MkZN8T ) the permit adds speed and parking limits, plus a $25,000 bond for road repair and re-vegetation. The nearly 900-acre high-mesa Schmid Ranch, homesteaded in 1882, must be returned to its original state after filming is completed.

Tarantino's post-Civil War film, which is budgeted at $44 million, qualified for $5 million in state incentives last month. Associate county planner Karen Henderson says crews could start moving equipment to the area next week.

Colorado's incentives, approved by the state Economic Development Commission, beat out those of Utah and Wyoming.
