Universal takes on Tarantino’s Inglorious Bastards

On top of the glorious news that both Brad Pitt and Leonardo DiCaprio might be starring in Quentin Tarantino’s upcoming World War II film entitled Inglorious Bastards, we also have the news that Universal Studios is partnering with The Weinstein Company to release it. We get the scoop from our friends over at ComingSoon.net:

“Quentin Tarantino’s Inglorious Bastards has landed at Universal Pictures, reports Variety.

The studio has signed a deal to partner with the Weinstein Company to bring the World War II drama to the big screen.

Tarantino and Harvey Weinstein met with five studios last week, and it came down to Paramount and Universal.”

First off it’s great to see that the ball is officially rolling on this long talked about and long awaited next film from Tarantino. As a devoted fan of the filmmaker I will see anything, and I mean anything, that he creates. And Inglorious Bastards is no exception.

This piece of news tells us something interesting – that The Weinstein Company were shaken severely by the flop that was Grindhouse, Tarantino’s last film that they released. And it seems that they are being very cautious by teaming up with another studio to release this one, I’m guessing they don’t want another flop on their hands. Who would?

Inglorious Bastards is set to be released in mid-2009.
