Inglourious Basterds is the correctly misspelled title of Quentin Tarantino‘s latest movie. The film is inspired by the 1978 movie Inglorious Bastards. Brad Pitt and Melanie Laurent have the lead roles in a very large cast. Quentin Tarantino is working hard in order to premiere the film at the Cannes Film Festival in May 2009, but the official U.S. release is on August 21, 2009.
Take a look to this picture of Brad Pitt as Lt. Aldo Raine in the Inglourious Basterds:
“Inglourious Basterds begins in German-occupied France, where Shoshanna Dreyfus (Mélanie Laurent) witnesses the execution of her family at the hand of Nazi Colonel Hans Landa (Christoph Waltz). Shosanna narrowly escapes and flees to Paris, where she forges a new identity as the owner and operator of a cinema.
Elsewhere in Europe, Lieutenant Aldo Raine (Brad Pitt) organizes a group of Jewish soldiers to engage in targeted acts of retribution. Known to their enemy as “The Basterds,” Raine’s squad joins German actress and undercover agent Bridget Von Hammersmark (Diane Kruger) on a mission to take down the leaders of The Third Reich. Fates converge under a cinema marquee, where Shosanna is poised to carry out a revenge plan of her own…”
A group of Jewish soldiers to engage in targeted acts of retribution? Hey that’s the stance of Liev Schreiber in Defiance!
The movie Inglourious Basterds will probably be as strange and awesome as Kill Bill!
