tarantino inglorius bastard Universal Is Inglorious

After on-again, off-again negogiations with various studios (including Miramax and Paramount), it seems that Quentin Tarantino’s WWII epic Inglorious Bastards has finally found a home: Universal Pictures.

I’m still surprised this is actually moving forward. I mean…how many times has Tarantino talked up a project non-stop about it being his next film and then (like some hyper-active kid with A.D.D.) tosses it asside for another one altogether.

Remember The Vega Brothers, Kill Bill Vol. IV and his untitled Mandarian-language kung-fu epic, folks?

If Tarantino is to be believed, Inglorious Bastards will be ready for the 2009 Canne film-festival with production scheduled to commense this Fall.

Personally…I doubt that, but good luck nonetheless. I’d certainly love to be proven wrong on this one.

  1. Well the poster’s a laugh if nothing else. Has Quentin really been able to stay off the pies?

  2. Who at Universal is supporting it? I think it stands to reason the production flows with the cash.

  3. This guy is The Flash when it comes to directing. Universal is a great studio… Whats the prob ?

    By the way I was at Universal today and the “Back to the Future” courtyard has allready been rebuilt (they did that first it seems.)
    It looks like the famous Clock is the last thing to add to the structure.
    I was surprised how much had burned down. I hadn’t been on the lot since the fire.
    Alot of false front street fronts that were used on the Original Night Stalker were gone. Bummer.
    But there rebuilding. !! 😉

  4. Hey Liz, I apologize for your comments continually getting caught in the spam filter. I’ve contacted the appropriate folks to try to remedy that.

    As far as this movie is concerned – I shudder to think what a Tarantino-directed WWII movie might be like…


  5. It will be Inglorious part 1, Vic, and then Inglorious part 2. …..

  6. Now that he’s actually accountable to some people, maybe it will go forward. He really needs to sit down and focus on something so he can make it great, instead of just “kinda good.”

  7. I’m still a great fan of his work, I don’t know his methods but damn what results they give! Come on, he IS a master in filmmaking and storytelling. If he does something, it is mostly genious! Reservoir Dogs, Pulp Fiction, Kill Bill, these are gems in a movie-industry that not normally would make these kind of movies.


  8. I didn’t like Jackie Brown or Grindhouse but I’ve enjoyed pretty much everything else he’s done ( or been involved with ) . I’m always looking forward to QT’s next project , bring it on !!! :)

  9. Steven,

    Let’s not forget Grindhouse, Deathproof, or Jackie Brown. For every action there is an opposite and equal reaction, it seems.

    With a movie title like “Inglorious Bastards,” and it’s about the biggest war in history– I don’t think this will be a very fun movie to watch. I just hope he doesn’t upset the few that still follow him.


  10. Its guaranteed to be very gory I’m sure.

    Prob even get NC-17 rating at first.
