Tarantino: Inglorious Bastards in Cannes by 2009!

For some reason, when I think of Quentin Tarantino, I always think lengthy periods in-between new movies, which isn’t really true, because his most recent was 2007′s “Death Proof”. Maybe it’s just because Tarantino talks about a lot of movies, or is attached to a lot of them, that he never ends up making. The movie that most people (re: raving Tarantino fanboys who quotes his movies endlessly) seem to want him to tackle is the WWII movie “Inglorious Bastards”, his take on the “guys on a mission” genre that he’s talked about for years now. So is Tarantino going to finally tackle those bastards? Maybe.

Here’s what Tarantino recently said to a French reporter during his recent stay at Cannes for the festival. Via Joblo.com.

Host: What are the next films that you are going to be making? We’re hearing KILL BILL 3, KILL BILL 4, which one is it?

Tarantino: The next movie I’m doing is my World War II movie. I just finished up the first draft and if ALL GOES WELL, I will be here, in Cannes, in 2009 with INGLORIOUS BASTARDS!

“Inglorious Bastards” in 2009? That seems a tad optimistic on his part. The movie doesn’t even have a cast, and I haven’t even heard of an official announcement by any of the studios on the project. Still, if Tarantino says he’s ready to go, no doubt the Weinsteins will coming running post haste with the money.

    My take – Tarantino’s emptied out his bladder of creativity when he did PULP FICTION. It’s been just a series of over-hyped and over-rated offerings ever since then (kinda like the Emperor’s clothes syndrome). Think I’ve had my bellyful of Tarantino-esque homages unless there’s some substance to go along with all the hype.

    It’s funny, this guy has been talking about a WW2 film since “Kill Bill,” if I remember correctly. And I think he even said he was working on the script then. Where is this script? First Draft? Good grief. He got the kick in the nuts he has long deserved when he released his stupid homage to Grindhouse films. I think the Weinsteins were pretty shocked that no one CARED. And then Tarantino showed up to Cannes with his half of “Grindhouse,” and no one CARED. I agree with Wael – it is Emperor’s clothes syndrome – and I said that very same thing when I reviewed “Grindhouse.” He’s ripped off every Asian film possible. He isn’t fresh or talented. If he didn’t have source material, he’d have writer’s block.

    Looks like he made it in time, doesn´t it? :)

    Tarantinos main underlying message in all his movies is “As you make your bed, so you must lie on it” or simply “karma”. The bad guys in his movies usually die by their own methods.

    That is a simple message that Tarantino conveys in a far superior way, in my opinion.
