Inglourious Basterds Details

Theatrical Release Date: August 21, 2009

Synopsis: A group of Jewish-American soldiers take revenge on the leaders of the Third Reich during World War II.

The screenplay for the movie was largely developed between work on Jackie Brown and Kill Bill though QT says that he needs another year to finish it. According to both Tarantino and Michael Madsen, the screenplay for this film is huge – Tarantino called it 3 feature length scripts, Madsen said it would run about 6 hours. Because of that length, there has been talk of this movie being split up into multiple pieces, just like Kill Bill was.

Much like Kill Bill, Inglourious Basterds (Inglorious Bastards) is somewhat of a derivative movie, being heavily influenced by The Dirty Dozen and Where Eagles Dare. Despite some rumors, this film is not a remake of the 1977 Bo Svenson movie also titled Inglorious Bastards (that particular movie was also known as Counterfeit Commandos, Deadly Mission, G.I. Bro, and Hell’s Heroes).

Primary Cast: Brad Pitt, Diane Kruger, Eli Roth, BJ Novak, Christoph Waltz

Tarantino’s Input: Writer, director and producer.
