Latino Review's El Mayimbe has gotten his hands on the screenplay for Quentin Tarantino's long awaited WWII epic Inglorious Basterds (which, according to El Mayimbe, is indeed spelled with an "e"). The film seems to be a Jewish exploitation flick, as it follows the adventures of eight Jewish soldiers that must infiltrate enemy lines. Led by Lt. Aldo Raine (who some suspect may be played by Brad Pitt), these eight men are each instructed to bring back one hundred Nazi scalps or die trying.
This is but one aspect of the film's massive weight. The central mission revolves around Operation Kino, which sees this badass Jewish army of eight into Paris so that they can attack the enemy during the premiere of a new propaganda war movie being shown by one of Hitler's closest associates, Joseph Goebbels. The script is one hundred and sixty-five pages long, and is broken down into the following chapters: Chapter One: Once Upon a Time...Nazi Occupied France; Chapter Two: Inglorious Basterds [sic]; Chapter Three: German Night in Paris (to be filmed in "French New Wave Black and White"); Chapter Four: Operation Kino; Chapter Five: Revenge of the Giant Face.
Inglorious Basterds does not have a set start date at this time. But if all goes according to plan, we should see it in theaters sometime next year.
