It seems that some Germans aren't too thrilled with Quentin Tarantino's new film. According to The Hollywood Reporter, a leaked copy of Quentin Tarantino's script for Inglorious Bastards has gotten out and one German journalist predicts it will create the same kind of backlash that Valkyrie did in Germany.
"All the German historians and critics who were left gasping for breath by Tom Cruise and his worthy attempts will be so shocked by 'Inglorious Bastards' that they will savage it on the spot," wrote Tobias Kniebe, the film editor of Suddeutsche Zeitung.
Kniebe did personally enjoy the script, but added, "the collision between Tarantino-style pop culture with the themes of the Holocaust and Jewish revenge (the 'Bastards' of the film are Jewish-American Nazi hunters) is unprecedented in Germany and its results are completely unpredictable."
What might be more fuel for the fire is that the production would likely receive money from the German governmnet, through the DFFF film fund that grants tax breaks to productions that film in Germany, and Inglorious Bastards will be filmed in Berlin.
Inglorious Bastards is set to begin production on October 13 in Berlin.
