As I understood he said that the script won't be finished in another 12 months (maybe because QT is a little bit tired and needs some rest or maybe because he wants to take some time to think what does he want to be in the movie or both) but it doesn't mean that the script well be finished in 12 months, it can take 2 or 3 years!! So, in the meantime QT might do an another movie. Remember that he was talking about the erotic one?

I think that makes a perfect sence.

Well news is Rodriguez and Universal has decided not to go ahead with Barbarella. They won't say for what reasons, but RR says budgetry. Anyways, maybe the two of them can come up with something new. If RR does do Machete like he planned, QT will more than likely shoot a faux trailer for that.

Its been about a decade since he first started writing it. He wrote Kill Bill AFTER he started writing IB. I dont know why he just doesnt finish IB and make it. Why take more time to write another separate script again?

He definitely has it in him to complete what remains of the script in a short time if he wants to. He wrote Dogs in something like 2 weeks, Death Proof too. Of course Bastards is more epic than the two of them  combined but by Jove, you'd think that 10 years would be more than enough.

I think it's more than 6 or 7, but don't forget that Once Upon A Time In America took 12 years to write. And that was with 6 writers!

Ive been thinking about a few actors I would like to see in this movie if there is a part for them. One actor Ive wanted QT to use for some time is Scott Glen. I think he would be good in a war movie and he plays a bad guy so well. Anyone else have any people they would like to see QT work with in this film? Some of the people Ive heard being considered is sorta disappointing.

all those guys are awesome but everyone (including Michael Madsen or Adam Sandler) are way too old to play soldiers. I remember what Sam Fuller said about WW2 and the big red one: when he fought he was 35 yrs old and was 10 yrs older than everybody else.. i am really eager to know what the trick will be to make this word.
PS- it is not a critique, I'd rather have some cool 40 to 60 yrs old actors in that film than chris evans or a dickhead like him .. ;D

The age depends on what rank some of the soldiers held. If they get these guys from prison they could be old bad asses.

It was WORLD WAR fuckin' TWO, the entire world except Sweden was at fuckin' war. Age did not matter, you joined the fight. The only time age came into play was the Vietnam war cause that's after they constituted the draft bullshit and fuck everything and everybody over for a war that had nothing to do with us, like we're doing again.

Sandler and Madsen could easily be soldiers, it really doesn't matter, they grabbed anybody for that war.

QT talks a bit on a Bastards scene:

"I get the characters talking to each other and I write it all down and clean it up a little. So I’m writing something now and what I wanted to happen is this soldier is talking to a girl and eventually he charms her enough so she has a cup of coffee with him. That’s how Quentin the writer would have liked it to end, but when I wrote it all he didn’t do it. The soldier didn’t charm her enough, he charmed her enough for her not to say, “Get the fuck outta here!â€

I think part of the film will take place in France. Remember in WW II Battle Of The Bulge!

http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/amex/bulge/gallery/index.html


In mid-1944, it looked as if the war in Europe was coming to an end. Hitler was on the run; the Allies had triumphantly regained Paris, as well as Casablanca and Naples and Rome. After five hard years of war, Allied soldiers were breathing easier -- even stopping to enjoy dances and parties.

Hitler, however, had one final card to play. In December 1944, he struck back with a counterattack that has come to be known as the Battle of the Bulge -- the single biggest and bloodiest American soldiers have ever fought -- in which nearly 80,000 were killed, maimed or captured in an infernal test of courage and endurance.

Battle of the Bulge looks at the battle through the eyes of the U.S. soldiers and combat officers in the field -- the young men charged with holding the line and closing the bulge. In their own words, they describe the events leading up to the attack; unpreparedness and surprise of the Allied forces; and the grueling physical and psychological conditions under which they fought.

Packed with newsreel and Army footage, Battle the Bulge offers an intimate, compelling chronicle of war that captures both the action on the battle's front lines and the strategy behind the scenes. The program uncovers the unique mixture of faith, fear and prudence that sustained American soldiers in battle and led to their ultimate victory -- as well as the horror that still haunts their memories.

It came as a total surprise when, on December 16, 1944, thirty German divisions -- a quarter of a million men strong -- roared across an 85-mile Allied front, from southern Belgium to the middle of Luxembourg. Secretly planned down to the detail by Hitler himself, the invasion was designed to split the American-British alliance, setting them to quarreling and permitting the Führer to negotiate a peace. The losses on the first day were massive; in some places, the Allies were outnumbered ten to one.

By Christmas, the German offensive had opened a bulge some 50 miles into the Allied lines, forcing the biggest mass surrender of American soldiers since Bataan -- some 4,000 men in a single day.

But General Eisenhower decided that this was the Allies' chance to end the war once and for all. Across the rolling hills and dark forests of Belgium and Luxembourg, more than half a million young men were thrown into the cause.

The soldiers often fought in zero-temperature conditions and driving snow, which prevented them from seeing more than 10 or 20 yards in front of them. With equipment and uniforms that were designed for warmer times, frostbite became a terrible reality. Because soldiers were often cut off from their divisions in foxholes, the wounded, in some cases, literally froze to death.

"Both the enemy and the weather could kill you," says Private Bart Hagerman of the 17th Airborne in the film. "And the two of them together was a pretty deadly combination."

"It seems like you're in this deadly struggle under miserable conditions and the whole universe is united against you," recalls Sergeant Ed Stewart of the 84th Infantry.

As the battle wore on and the Americans suffered more and more casualties, men had to be found to take their places. As a result, physical standards were lowered, and training was cut short. In one the film's most moving sections, Ben Kimmelman, a captain in the 28th Infantry, describes how soldiers who had been physically wounded or disturbed by combat were given cursory treatment and shipped back to the front.

"Men who were wounded and were redeemable were in a very bad position," recalls Kimmelman."... It's very hard to forget the expressions on their faces ... a kind of hollow-eyed, lifeless, slack-jawed expression. ... It's almost as though they're going to a hopeless doom."

The Battle of the Bulge ended in the last few days of January 1945, when American troops made their way back to the original lines: the ones they had held when the battle began. Sixteen thousand Americans had lost their lives and 60,000 were wounded or captured; German casualties were said to be twice that. And for many veterans, the terrible battle has never ended.

"It doesn't go away," says Sergeant Ed Stewart of the 84th Infantry. "It sleeps sometimes, but then it awakens again ... It's an enormity of an experience. And everything after that has been a footnote."



Now that would make a GREAT MOVIE!

Actually, the earliest mention of IB I could find is a 1995 interview QT did with Robert Zemeckis. So that makes it over 12 years. In the interview QT says: "One of the things that I'm considering doing, of the dancing projects in my head, is the genre that I call World War II Movie - Bunch of Guys on a Mission." He goes on to say that World War II movies aren't adventurous anymore, they focus too much on the victims, and that he wants to bring the adventure aspect back. Zemeckis agrees saying that "the Vietnam War screwed up the World War II genre, because war movies of any kind can't be fun anymore, because war is presented, as it probably should be, as this ugly, horrible thing." QT responds by saying that you can't make a fun movie about war anymore but you can make an "exciting" war movie.

QT's been doing a lot of research for a long time. I think he even took some college courses on World War II, if I'm not mistaken.

I dunno, maybe this is just me being overly optimistic, but something tells me Inglorious Bastards is going to be his definitive masterpiece. It just feels like it's going to piss all over Pulp Fiction and Kill Bill. I mean this is the thing he has actually been working on since he was a kid. Remember the "But mom, I didn't curse, it was the soldier" anecdote from when he was a kid? I think everything will fall into place with this. It will have aspects from all his favourite genre's in there, especially the Spaghetti Western. He says that with everyone film he tries to reach the greatness of The Good the Bad and the Ugly but he never does, and knows he never can. But IB I feel will be pretty fucking close if not exceed Leone's genius. I think it will be great acting, great music, great action, great set pieces and above all, great dialogue-galore. I just hope to dear God that he DOES NOT do this as a TV series. I want it to be a film, and it's gotta be entitled Inglorious Bastards, and it has to be his ultimate film, like all his life he was working towards making this film. After this film, he will win all those fans he lost from Death Proof. After this film, he will be viewed in a new light of greatness. After this film, he can get struck by lightening. He would have done what he was put on this planet to do.



Of course I could be wrong and he produces something worse than Death Proof (which in my opinion is his weakest film, relatively speaking) and people will see him as the one trick pony they always accused him of, and he'll lose all respect amongst cinephiles. He will have offically been laughed off the arena.

If he plans to do this film justice, he needs to do more action films. He just hasn't gotten there yet. Kill Bill was terrific, but he needs to do more so that he'll be prepared. Preparation=success.

One thing I get tired of is redefining shit. Sometimes, redefining shit is not all that great, it's one directors vision of something. Kubrick didn't redefine the Horror film with The Shining, damn good as it was, it didn't. Halloween did IMHO. But, if he's going to do this film, he needs more prep in my opinion.
