Not a remake of Castellari's, somewhat entertaining, WW2 actioner (Tarantino ripped the name because he couldn't think of anything more badass on his own).

I have the script if anybody is interested.
Send me an email if you want dibbs...

Lately, my excitement of this film has rubbed off a bit do to some of the casting choices. Furthermore, until I see Sly, Arnold and Bruce's name's attached to this film, I won't get all that excited.

They already have a cast set up?

I to I'm none too excited about this.
I'm just interested in seeing how much can Tarantino botch up a WW2 flick (hence, why I wanted the script).
He better hope this is a success.
If this is another Grindhouse he can kiss his career goodbye (for a long while anyway).
This will probably end up being the biggest budget he has ever been given.
Hope he makes the hand that feeds him happy.

Yeah, Brad Pitt, Leonardo Dicaprio, Eli Roth (director of the Hostel films) to name a few.

Is this from a credible source or IMDB?

Yes, credible. I've read it on various websites other than IMDB.

Well, I was admittedly a mite interested when I first heard about this project, but Tarantino's been putting it off for years. Are we sure this is actually going to be made?

I respect Reservoir Dogs and Pulp Fiction enough to wait and see Tarantino's final vision before I pass judgment.

It's happening.
It will be released next year if all goes well.
I'm just questioning the casting choices which I haven't heard anything as of yet.


SPOILERS*****************
The script, so far, is damn good, there are several character in the story that will all come together for the big final (at least that is where the script seems to be heading).
The "Inglorious Bastards" are a platoon of Jewish Americans who are sent into Nazi oocupied France to eradicate as many German soldiers as possible, as gruesomly as possible. Their platoon captain (sargent, commander, whatever) asks them to have 100 nazi scalps tied to them by the end of the war.
This protion of the script is entertaining but overly silly.
The real meat of the movie involves a young Jewish girl whose parents were brutally murdered by a nazi S.S. officer known as the "Jew Hunter" (this guys opening scene has reflections of LVC's entrance in GBU). The young Jewess ends up being hidden in a French cinema for several years. She eventually becomes the owner of the joint and is one day visited by a young German private who is also a war hero. The private (thinking the Jewess is french) is smitten by the girl and arranges his fellow soldiers, and a german director, to hold a premiere of a film in her cinema. The Jewess gets the idea of burning down the place during the premiere which will hold some of Germany's most well known war criminals including the "Jew Hunter".

Yeah, but on the other hand I don't really respect Kill Bill.

Funny thing is, I think "Jackie Brown" is QT's best and most mature work, yet nobody respects it. I'm one of those who likes "Kill Bill." There's so many homages I absolutely love in that film.

I think that is his best work to date as well.

The two films before it are very good to (RD kinda loses steam when the Mr. Orange story shows up though).
Everything after Jackie Brown I have mixed feelings about.
Kill Bill volume 1 is pretty fun but the second installment (truthfully, the second half of the film) is just a drag in most parts.
Death Proof was terrible.

Ironically, QT once said that ''Jackie Brown'' is the only movie he entirely directed that wasn't his 'child', so somewhere during the shooting he lost the inspiration and finished it routinely, without much delaying.

The truth is that the 'routine' made the movie better, because there wasn't any time/inspiration/space for the proverbial dialog overloading (that culminated in PF), that doesn't make any sense at all (and bores you to death). Yeah, I'm talking about the 'Killy Billy' ones.

I know you don't like "Death Proof" FC but I have a soft spot for 1970's chase films. I thought QT did a fantastic job with his chase sequences here and it reminded me of those films. And how can you not love Kurt Russell's Stuntman Mike? I think the character is hilarious. Yes, I'm a Kurt Russell fan so I'm being a bit biased when I talk about him I guess.
