Tarantino on Inglorious Bastards

QuentinTarantino.jpgQuentin Tarantino has been hard at work on the script for Inglorious Bastards for quite some time now. But he says he finished it last week, and he's happy it's done.

We seem to have been waiting for a while for him to get round to Inglorious Bastards, but it's finally moving. He's been talking about what made him write the script, and what he has planned for it.

Quentin Tarantino was talking to BBC News and said he'd finished the script for Inglorious Bastards, and he was surprised everyone knew about it:

You're talking to a real happy dude right now. I didn't know everyone knew about it, so this is actually kind of very bizarre for me.

And although the inspiration for the film is The Dirty Dozen, and the kind of remake Quel maledetto treno blindato, it's going to look very different.

What actually got me to sit down and put pen to paper was 'hey wouldn't it be fun to do a Dirty Dozen kind of thing?' It doesn't look anything like The Dirty Dozen. I don't want it to feel like a period film. I want it to feel current. I want it to feel right now. One of the things I have to battle against is 30 years of Nazi-occupation TV movies where we've all seen the big streets and the vintage cars and the Swastikas, and we've just seen that ad nauseum...This is a modern, in-your-face movie. This is not a TV movie period piece."

So we can expect a modern take on The Dirty Dozen. This could be something special, especially if he has enough to turn it into two films. We just need some cast news now.
