Tarantino to finish writing Inglorious Bastards

QuentinTarantino.jpgQuentin Tarantino has confirmed that Inglorious Bastards is definitely a film he's going to make. He says that he's going to use the time needed to promote Grindhouse worldwide to finish writing the script.

"I am going to kind of go on the road with this, around the earth here. I haven't really done it in a big way in a long time where you spend six months doing it. But I also like writing on the road, it's a really good time to do that so I will probably finish up 'Inglorious Bastards' while I am promoting 'Grindhouse'."

The comments come from a Grindhouse press junket through /Film, and it sounds like we could be seeing a script when he's finished the press tour.

There's a lot of talk about the film to date with rumoured casting and talk of the script being in three parts and therefore three films. I guess we have to wait a little longer to find out how it's going to turn out.

The film is based on the 1977 film Quel maledetto treno blindato which could be said to be a remake of sorts of the 1967 ensemble cast film The Dirty Dozen.

They all tell the same story. In World War II a group of American soldiers are being led to execution for their misconduct during war, but they have one chance to redeem themselves, fight for their country one more time and take on a mission that could mean certain death.

It's been rumoured that the cast would be a pretty cool ensemble film just like The Dirty Dozen.



the orginal - enzo g castellari film - is also commonly known as 'inglorious bastards' too, see the for instance. it has a bit of a reputation, at least castellari does, as one of the best genre movie makers of his time - particularly for crime movies, some (can't remember how many) were released by Blue Underground in america on DVD not that long ago... for example.

Cheers logboy, I'll have a look into those.

Inglorious bastards will be a sweet movie. With the story line that is similar to the dirty dozen and Tarantinos awsome film making talents it has got to be a kick ass movie.

I read somewhere that Tarantino was hoping to get Bruce Willis, Sly Stallone and Arnold Schwarzenegger on board for this. That'd be incredible!!!

That's been a rumour for a while, denied by Tarantino in the past.

Stallone denied the story too.

Still, all that aside, I would love those guys to get together. It would carry the same sort of feel and a nice casting twist that the Dirty Dozen did.

you can find the movie on Netflix also...It's called "G.I BRO", it's a pretty good flick with Bo Svenson and Fred Williamson, it would be cool if Tarantino gave them cameos in the new version
