Inglorious Bastards will be Quentin Tarantino’s next film, according to the Grindhouse director.
“That will probably be the very next thing I do,” Quentin told /Film at the Grindhouse junket. “Robert will probably be doing Sin City 2 coming up fairly shortly.Â I am going to kind of go on the road with this, around the earth here.Â I haven’t really done it in a big way in a long time where you spend six months doing it.Â But I also like writing on the road, it’s a really good time to do that so I will probably finish up ‘Inglorious Bastards’ while I am promoting ‘Grindhouse’.
Bastards is the project Tarantino worked on in the six years in between the releases of Jackie Brown and Kill Bill. Instead of a conventional 100 to 200 page script, he wrote a 600 page work in three feature-length parts. It has been rumored that the resulting film will be released in two or three parts.
Set in World War II, the story revolves around a group of soldiers on their way to be executed, when they get the chance of a reprieve. Tarantino has described them as “not your normal hero types that are thrown into a big deal in World War II.”
Michael Madsen will star as Babe Buchinsky. Other names rumored to be involved in the project include: Tim Roth, Sylvester Stallone, Bruce Willis, Paul Walker, Adam Sandler, Eddie Murphy, Johnny Depp, John Travolta, Harvey Keitel, Fred Williamson, John Jarratt, Mickey Rourke and Christopher Walken.
