In an interview with the Boston Tribune published over the weekend, Quentin Tarantino has confirmed that, at long last, he is definitely done writing the screenplay for his World War II epic Inglorious Bastards.
“I’ve been working on it for a long time,” he said. “And I literally just finished it, so it’s too soon to talk about it. It’s too new.”
Tarantino was being interviewed in conjunction with an appearance at the recently concluded Provincetown Film Festival. Tarantino’s first film Reservoir Dogs which played at the festival in 1992.
Last month, we reported that Tarantino has stated that he was done with the first draft of his script. Is Tarantino talking about a second draft or does “literally just finished it” translate as “about a month or so ago, I finished it”?
According to the article, Tarantino still hopes to have Bastards completed in time to debut at next spring’s Cannes Film Festival. Perhaps he needs to quit the public appearances for a while and get down to shooting this film?
