Inglorius Bastards Really Is A Go!

As previously reported at Cannes, Tarantino said he was readying Inglorious Bastards and there seemed to be a general consensus among most that QT was doing the same old same old and given false promised of this long mooted film.

Well shock horror Slash Film is reporting today that the film is now in pre production.

Tarantino was scheduled to appear at the Alamo Drafthouse’s Rolling Roadshow events in Spain but made a last minute cancellation. The official word is that “He has cleared all appearances to begin preproduction on his new feature, Inglorious Bastards.” So it appears like Inglorious Bastards might be happening after all.

Tarantino has described Inglorious Bastards as a “Spaghetti Western set in France during World War II”. Based Loosely on the premise of The Dirty Dozen, the story centers around a rag tag group of soldiers that are sent on a deadly mission as an alternative to being court-marshaled or put to death. Over the years the rumored cast list has included the likes of Michael Madsen, Adam Sandler, Eddie Murph, Sly Stallone Paul Walker, Eddie Murphy, Sylvester Stallone, Tim Roth, Julie Dreyfus, Bo Svenson and Enzo Castellari.
