Inglorious Bastards casting
There's more casting news on Quentin Tarantino's Inglorious Bastards, and this has a number of Death Proof (Filmstalker review) actors flitting across to the World War II tale.
Not only that but there are a number of German actors coming on board too, totally against the original casting hype of big names, something that I still think would have been interesting to see.
However the casting news is that Julie Dreyfus will be playing the role of Francesca, the French woman who is a collaborator and interpreter for the Nazi's, she previously appeared in Kill Bill: Vol. 1 and Tokyo!.
Omar Doom from Death Proof (Filmstalker review) and Grindhouse is apparently cast as one of the Basterds (spelling is deliberate), Christoph Waltz is one of the Nazi's, and Christian Berkel recently on Valkyrie and Miracle at St. Anna, August Diehl last seen in The Counterfeiters, Jana Pallaske from Speed Racer and Michael Bacall from Death Proof and Grindhouse are also cast in other roles.
It's shaping up to be a strong cast indeed, other casting roles you can read about on Filmstalker.
I like the way this is working out now. He's done the bigger name casting and now he's rounding it out with a mix of foreign actors who have some varied experience behind them. Of course I'm still not certain about that script, which you can still find online through Filmstalker.
What do you think of the casting so far? Is Inglorious Bastards shaping up to be a good film?
