When it comes to QT, I wouldn't agree. He didn't have much "preparation" in the crime genre before Reservoir Dogs, and look what happened?!

I think all his past films have been his preparation. But I doubt hes going to shoot this until he really feels the script is as perfect as it can be.

QT is 45-46 NOW, by the time he does this hes gonna be 50-51 AT LEAST. Most of his actors like Tim Roth, Mike Madsen are older than he is, so its gonna be a bunch of 55 + year old guys in a WW II Men On A Mission flick? WTF? He better finish the script asap and just shoot it. Or just do it with a a group of much younger guys and forget the old Dogs gang. Maybe have 1 or 2 of em as Head Seargents or something.

If QT ever does Bastards, you know how long hes gonna take off before he does another film? I think IB may be the last QT film we ever see before he retires (age 55 according to QT). That is unless he does more films before IB and saves it for later.

I find it hard to believe that believe that a 600-page script is gonna go unused. We just have to be patient.

I agree. I'd rather have a great movie than a rushed piece of shit.

That's not exactly what I meant, but you are right. So many pages = a lot of cleaning up in the script. I mean, there's probably a second draft, right? What I actually meant was: if you write 600 pages and call it your best work, you're not gonna throw it in the trash, are you?

Btw, does someone know the name of the music 0:33 into this video? Apparently, it's Morricone, but I don't recognize it. Any cinephiles?

from the new issue of Sight and Sound:

Quentin has just started writing ...
How is 'Inglorious Bastards' going?

I've got tons of material and a lot of stuff written but now I've figured out what to do, I gotta start from page one, square one. I started just before I came on this trip and brought the stuff with me but I haven't had a chance to continue yet. But maybe on the flight back home I'll come back into it. I love writing in other countries. It's a lot of fun
man, Inglorious Bastards better rock my balls off.

Hes gotta mean hes adapting it into the actual shooting script now. Editing it down. He has 600 pages (or more) to work with.

He should do a movie about Steve Urkel, it'll be like the Ernest movies but with Steve! That would really kick ass.

I've just been on You Tube looking at different clips of QT and came upon his interview with Charlie Rose which I haven't seen before. Anyway, firstly I would just like to quote part of one of my previous posts...
Ify wrote: For some reason, and I know I musn't think this just yet, but Inglorious Bastards seems to me to be his "true" masterpiece. Like how you remember a director for one stand out film. Right now, the greatest film I have ever seen is Pulp Fiction. Something just tells me "not for long...."
QT tells CR that his IB script is getting bigger, that he couldn't find a way to end it. CR asked him about this. There follows a very interesting segment about IB, one which makes me cream my pants in ecstacy. I'm going to stop the video at that and watch the rest later, it was that good...

QT: "You know what it was... I just couldn't let go off it. I mean there was this weird thing about it, where I had directed Jackie Brown and then I had acted on this play, and then it was then this writer in me - ok now, deal with me, alright. Let me take over. I'm like 'great, it's time for you to take over'. I let him take over, and I just became too precious about the page. It just had to be the greatest thing I had ever done and I just couldn't stop writing, I couldn't turn my head off. It's just like, I kept coming up with another idea after that and another idea after that... and it's like this is a movie, alright, it can't just keep getting bigger and bigger and bigger, and it did but I was so in love with the page I couldn't stop. Now after I've done Kill Bill, I know how to end it, I know how to do all of that, but at that moment when, you know, everything was about that, I just couldn't get away from the desk.

CR: "Do you view this World War II movie as your masterpiece? So far, having not filmed a single page of the script?"

QT: "Well, I would say what I have written so far, alright, is the best stuff I've ever written."

Tarantino talks Inglorious Bastards and Grindhouse

Post by roulette67 » Sun Feb 03, 2008 10:17 am

Posted Feb 2nd 2008 12:32PM by Ryan Stewart
http://www.cinematical.com/2008/02/02/t ... ost-story/

In a new, in-depth interview with British magazine Sight & Sound, Quentin Tarantino, who I had the pleasure of meeting at this year's Sundance, goes into all his upcoming and most of his past projects, and gives a detailed update on exactly where he is with his next feature, a war movie called Inglorious Bastards. "I've got tons of material and a lot of stuff written but now I've figured out what to do, I gotta start from page one, square one," Tarantino says, seemingly putting to rest any notion that this thing will be going before the cameras in the next year or so. "I started just before I came on this trip and brought the stuff with me but I haven't had a chance to continue yet. But maybe on the flight back home I'll come back into it. I love writing in other countries." No further details about the plot or potential casting is given, just that quasi-confirmation that the film is in his cross-hairs at the moment.

Tarantino also talks at length about Grindhouse, admitting to being depressed and disappointed over how the film was received at the box office, but defending his longer, original cut of Death Proof as the definitive one and arguing that it stands on its own quite well. Tarantino also talks about the process of getting involved with the double feature in the first place, and reveals that he first wanted his contribution to be a Candyman-style horror film about the ghost of a slave that terrifies a group of white girls. "The first idea was a bunch of young college history students that were going through a tour of the plantations of the old South. And there's a ghost of an old slave that is part of negro folklore. Jody the Grinder actually went down and bested the devil, by f**king him. And so the devil put him on earth for all eternity to f**k white women."

So why didn't this idea make the cut? "I would probably have had Sam Jackson playing that part," Tarantino continues," and it was really good, but then I didn't have anywhere to go with it, because if you have a story about a killer slave with supermacho powers done in the style of a slasher film, then even if he's doing it today, and even if the white girls are innocent, how can you not be on the slave's side?" Tarantino goes into many other areas in the interview, talking about his writing process, the books he's reading, the British movies he'd like to make one day, and even his plans for eventual retirement.

Damn, I stayed some minutes in front of my screen, didn't know what to write. I still don't, ahah. I'm sure IB is gonna be awesome like every QT movies for now, he hasn't disappointed us (I exclude every opinions about Death Proof cause I don't think a single second it's bad, wasted, or disappoiting).

The thing I'm the most exciting about, is to think the shooting may really take place in France like he has always repeated it over and over, that would be the absolute best for me. I can't even think how excited I'd be. Just like Marie-Antoinette for Sofia Coppola, was so so cool. For a "fan" (forget this word, I hate it) it's the best to think his/her fav director is shooting right next to you.

The only thing I'm afraid about is that if QT keeps writing and writing without stoping (which isn't really true cause in this interview he said so and in the recent interview, he said he's gonna start page 1, so I guess it was notes maybe before, or scenes but not a real script), would this fit again the lenght of a movie ? It'd be cool to do it in two parts like Kill Bill but it wasnt that easy to choose to do so for KB and imagine if IB is even bigger. I remember it's been said that he may do it as a TV series, that'd be cool but you can't get the same excitement as a real movie experience (even if some series are damned exciting, like The Sopranos).

yeah, I know. If you follow the link I posted, it'll take you to the page which has some hyperlinks to the Sight and Sound article. Which is vague online. I guess you need the magazine.

It's so fucking hard to get a hold of this magazine here in the UK. I've been to like 10 different stores now that sell a good range of magazines and I still haven't found it. This is pissing me off. The last place I'm going to try is the universisty union shop. If they don't have it, I may as well just kill myself  :D

How comes it's so hard to find it ? It's considered like the equivalent of Les Cahiers du Cinéma here, like one of the most respected sort of.

He said the same thing about the Death Proof script. And technically, that one was written after Inglorious Bastards.

Yeah dude, not all of us have the luxury of watching Charlie Rose on our Television sets. And me saying right at the start of my post that I "came upon his interview with Charlie Rose which I haven't seen before" which makes it clear I JUST saw that. Anyway, I wasn't aware of anybody posting the vid or making reference to it on any thread.

Yeah, which has got me thinking a little. I don't agree with him there though. I don't think DP is the best stuff he's ever written at all. That would go to PF.
