Quentin Tarantino Talks Inglorious Bastards

The BBC got to chat with Quentin Tarantino about completing the script for his World War II epic Inglorious Bastards and a possible release date for Cannnes next year. Tarantino had this to say on the style of the film.
What actually got me to sit down and put pen to paper was 'hey wouldn't it be fun to do a Dirty Dozen kind of thing?' It doesn't look anything like The Dirty Dozen. I don't want it to feel like a period film. I want it to feel current. I want it to feel right now. One of the things I have to battle against is 30 years of Nazi-occupation TV movies where we've all seen the big streets and the vintage cars and the Swastikas, and we've just seen that ad nauseum. This is a modern, in-your-face movie. This is not a TV movie period piece.
