Inglorious Bastards Split June 20, 2008 Quentin Tarantino’s ‘Inglorious Bastards’ To Be Two Films! Quentin Tarantino has recently confirmed a number of details regarding his next project. The film, titled ‘Inglorious Bastards’, was finally confirmed at this year’s Cannes film festival. Speaking about the film he confirmed the following details: • Two Films: Quentin says the story is too big for one movie, and will be split into two films, ala Kill Bill. • The Story: Set in World War II, Tarantino’s screenplay begins with a bunch of hardened criminals on a military transport that gets ambushed by Nazis. The prisoners escape and must fight the Nazis and the Allies on their journey to neutral Switzerland. • Casting: Over the years many names have been mentioned as being involved in the film. The list has included: Michael Madsen, Tim Roth, Sylvester Stallone, Bruce Willis, Paul Walker, Adam Sandler, Eddie Murphy, Johnny Depp, John Travolta, Harvey Keitel, Fred Williamson, John Jarratt, Mickey Rourke and Christopher Walken. Tarantino now claims that the names were just conversations and nothing more. Apparently, Tarantino, who usually writes his characters with specific actors in mind, he decided to go the more traditional route with Bastards by characters unlimited by dream castings.
