Universal Gets Inglorious Bastards

Breaking News: Universal Pictures have partnered with The Weinstein Co to produce Quentin Tarantino's World War II film Inglorious Bastards. Oh, and there was a 5.8 magnitude earthquake in Southern California... According to Variety, Tarantino and Harvey Weinstein met with five studios last week, and ended up choosing Universal over Paramount. Seems like a bad decision to me since a film like this needs a strong marketing team behind it, something neither the Weinstein's or Universal seems to have. Paramount would have been the better choice in the respect. Heck, look what they have done for DreamWorks. Principal photography is scheduled to begin this fall in Germany and France, with both Brad Pitt and Leonardo DiCaprico in talks to star.
