Tarantino Promises Inglorious Bastards in 2009

Tarantino is making very public promises to finish Inglorious Bastards. At the Cannes Film Festival, he told the audience he would have the film ready for the 2009 Festival. Here’s the money quote from the video linked above:

“The next movie I’m doing is my WWII movie Inglorious Bastards. I actually just finished the first draft of the script and when I go home I’ll be finishing it up … and if all goes well… I will be here 2009 at Cannes with my war film Inglorious Bastards.

Lots of folks are skeptical about that date – even making references to the long-ago promised Chinese Democracy album from Guns N Roses.
Personally, I think there’s no way in hell it’ll be ready by this time next year – it still has to be cast, filmed and edited. If QT is really done with the script, 2010 is more likely.
Thanks to Guillaume and Filias and Matt for the heads up on this.
