Quentin Tarantino is now actively taking his just-finished screenplay for his long-in-development World War II action flick Inglorious Bastards around to the various major studios to see if there is any interest in actually making the film, according to Nikki Finke and Hollywood Deadline.
Finke states that although Harvey Weinstein is attached to the film as a producer, Inglorious Bastards is not going to be produced through The Weinstein Company.
Hopefully, some smart executive will give Quentin the dump truck full of money he needs to make this film. Grindhouse not withstanding, Tarantino’s films have always done well at the box office. Also, he is one of the few directors working who I feel manages to take the time to create interesting characters that are at the center of his films. we’ve been teased since around 2001 about what this film was going to be, and I for one am hoping it gets committed to celluloid soon.
