Tarantino

BBC News has a nice little interview Quentin Tarantino where we learn a little about his upcoming two-part war epic, INGLORIOUS BASTARDS

“Tarantino, who was at an independent film festival in the US, confirmed he has now finished the screenplay for Inglorious Bastards – his long-awaited new film – and he maintains he is moving into pre-production right away

According to Tarantino no final decisions have yet been made about casting. But in the past a wide range of names from Tim Roth to Sylvester Stallone have been rumoured to be involved.

The film has been described as his version of the classic 1967 Second World War action movie The Dirty Dozen, starring Lee Marvin and Ernest Borgnine.

That film told the fictional story of a group of American soldiers convicted of various military crimes who were ordered to go on a suicide mission behind enemy lines to kill Nazi officers.

But Tarantino points out that the original picture was only a source of inspiration, nothing more. “

QT’s been making headlines quite a bit lately since he announced at this years Cannes Film Festival that he planned to have the film finished by this time next year, despite the fact that nobody has been casted yet. It may be a bit of a long shot, and many people seem to remain skeptical at the idea, but he certainly does seem to be determined to accomplish the feat.

Tarantino has yet to disappoint me with anything he’s done so far, and I have extremely high hopes for this film.
