Tarantino Keeps His Promise

Inglorious Bastards posterLike clockwork, Quentin Tarantino churns out another great film about every two years. Last year, after screening Death Proof at Cannes, Tarantino promised he’d be back in 2009 with a finished copy of his latest film, Inglorious Basterds.

Variety is reporting that QT is heading into the editing room post haste to cut a copy of the film that will be ready to be shown at The Cannes Film Festival sometime in May (13th – 24th). If that’s the case, we should see the estimated wide release date of August 21st come to light.

I always look forward to the next Tarantino project and Inglorious Basterds is no exception. Also according to Variety, the film will be split into five chapters:

Chapter 1: Once Upon a Time in Nazi Occupied France
Chapter 2: Inglourious Basterds
Chapter 3: German Night in Paris (filmed in “French New Wave Black and White”)
Chapter 4: Operation Kino
Chapter 5: Revenge of the Giant Face

I wonder what he means by mispelling the title in chapter 3, both words, that MUST mean something. Inglourious Basterds.

Yea, not even Canadians or Brits spell Inglorious that way. Or is this a blogger typo? The Basterds is real though.


I may have been in the minority, but I was a little disappointed by Death Proof (I thought it was too talky in parts), but then I am still looking forward to Inglorious Basterds. Whatever Tarantino does, it is bound to be interesting.
