Earier I put up a post about the Weinsteins not financing Inglorious Bastards. Well now, ComingSoon is not only reporting that QT is targetting an october shoot, but that the Weinsteins are planning to CO-FINANCE the movie.
Since the production will film in Europe and is looking toward an accelerated production schedule so that it can be finished in time to submit to May’s Cannes Film Festival, the Weinsteins are looking to join forces with a major studio to come aboard to co-finance in exchange for foreign rights.
THIS CHANGES EVERYTHING!!! Apparently, the only reason they want to join forces with another studio is so that they could get the movie done faster.
GOOD NEWS!! GOOD NEWS!! GOOD NEWS!! GOOD NEWS!! GOOD NEWS!! GOOD NEWS!!GOOD NEWS!! GOOD NEWS!! GOOD NEWS!! GOOD NEWS!! GOOD NEWS!! GOOD NEWS!! GOOD NEWS!! GOOD NEWS!! GOOD NEWS!!
The way I see it, two major studios combining forces means bigger budget for Quentin’s disposal in order to pull off the epic that he’s going for. And if the Weinsteins are still backing him, he should still have the creative control that he needs.
On the flip side however, the bigger the budget, the bigger potential for another financial flop. And even though we all know that financial sucess isn’t the best indicator of quality, it could possibly hinder QT’s future projects, and to be frank, I don’t wanna live in a world where Quentin Tarantino isn’t making movies.
Furthermore, Nikki Finke has confirmed that Quentin is in talks with Brad Pitt to star in IB.
