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.
