Quentin Tarantino’s proposed “The Hateful Eight” movie got more love Thursday as the San Miguel County Commissioners approved a special-use permit to let the filmmaker use the old Schmid Ranch, 10 miles west of Telluride.

The permit adds speed and parking limits, plus a $25,000 bond for road repair and revegetation. The nearly 900-acre high-mesa ranch, homesteaded in 1882, must be returned to its original state after filming is completed.

Tarantino’s post-Civil War flick, which is budgeted at $44 million, last month qualified for $5 million in state incentives. If things go smoothly, the crew could start moving equipment to the area next week, associate county planner Karen Henderson said.
