Firstshowing reported yesterday that Quentin Tarantino is shopping his script for Inglorious Bastards around… but surprisingly, one of the studios he’s not looking for financing from is The Weinstein Company.
“Tarantino is shopping the script around, and surprisingly not to the The Weinstein Company, whom the auteur seems so far to have been domestically married.”
And now, questions and speculations arise. The good news is (not necassarily saying that this is bad news), Harvey Weinstein and Lawrence Bender will return once again as producers. However, working with a new studio could hinder QT’s plan of creating the greatest war epic ever made. For those who don’t know, The Weinstein Company (formally Miramax) has backed all of QT’s films to date. They have created an extremely healthy, and creative working relationship and with their past success, QT is trusted to have almost complete creative control over his craft. But will a new studio like Warner Bros or Paramount give QT the freedom he needs?
Furthermore, many are speculating that selling the script may prove to be difficult due it’s unique subject matter and the recent financial flop of Grindhouse. It’s hard to say, and only time will tell, but if the rumors about QT wanting to cast Brad Pitt are true, then studios might be more willing to take the risk.
Also, this news only makes me more skeptical about his Cannes 2009 completion promise.
