QT likes the Inglourious Basterds fan fiction that he’s been seeing.
This is the greatest most flattering thing ever. I love love love love love this! I’m enjoying them writing my characters… the dialogue… It’s like Basterds is a TV show like Combat!, and these are all different episodes.
There’s a good bit of it at FanFiction.net. Anyone found any good specific stories?
So I remember Simon Pegg turning down a chance to appear in Inglourious Bastards. What I didn’t remember was that he did it so he could star in something called The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn. – which I at first assumed was some trippy Rin-Tin-Tin‘s long lost unicorn half-brother movie. Thankfully its not – but Pegg is still righfully kicking himself for passing on Bastards.
The screenplay for Inglourious Basterds is still available from Amazon.
If you haven’t already picked it up, Amazon has the single-disc DVD edition of Inglourious Basterds for $12.99.
Tarantino won the Critics’ Circle Dilys Powell Award for Excellence, which I guess is kind of a consolation prize since they gave Director of the Year to Kathryn Bigelow for The Hurt Locker.
Some more very cool custom Inglourious Basterds poster art, this time at Juxtapox Magazine. [thanks to Pete for the link]
And its all for charity benefitting the victims of the earthquake in Haiti:
Upper Playground teamed up with Quentin Tarantino and SA Studios to release the “Lost Art of Inglourious Basterds” to benefit the victims of the Haiti Earthquake. On February 18th, 2010 from 6 – 9pm, the world will get to preview and purchase the “Lost Art of Inglourious Basterds” at The Upper Playground Art Gallery in Downtown Los Angeles.
Its a shame that this is an in-person event only. They could have sold a bunch of these unsigned over the net for $5 or $10 each.
Also, be sure to check out Pete’s painting of Quentin that manages to work in references to several QT films.

Ibraheem Youssef has created some very cool looking minimalist posters for Tarantino’s films.
Very cool stuff, and unlike most of the alternative poster designs I’ve ever seen, you can actually purchase these from Ibraheem’s website.
QT says that depending on how Basterds does at the awards shows, we may get a prequel/sequel out of the deal – he’s already got 40 pages of prequel material written.
