Pitt for Inglorious Bastards?
According to rumour Brad Pitt is in talks to appear in Quentin Tarantino's Inglorious Bastards. I know, it's very quick after the announcement that he's going to make the film and that Brad Pitt's name seems to be thrown at every major project that is announced, but apparently this rumour is pretty firm and comes from a good source.
If you're really interested Harvey Weinstein is set to produce the film with Lawrence Bender. Yeah, we've got that out of the way, let's leap forward with this casting rumour.
Quentin Tarantino apparently asked Brad Pitt to star in the film, and Deadline Hollywood Daily, through Digital Spy, started the rumour and later confirmed it with a source, although that's about as much as we hear at the moment.
Still, it wouldn't be such a surprise to hear someone as big as Pitt joining the cast, but it's not the usual for Tarantino. Usually he'll pick some stars that haven't been seeing the light of day, or someone that the role will mean an entire shift of direction for, and that doesn't really seem like Pitt considering the differing roles he already takes.
Still, it's a big name and there are plenty of other roles to fill, and Inglorious Bastards looks like it's off to a good start. Let's hope it doesn't end up like an Ocean's reteam.
