Tarantino and the Phantom Film

We have been aware of Quentin Tarantino's WWII film Inglorious Bastards for a couple of years now, but recent word from Cannes, in an interview posted on, Tarantino says it will be ready by the 2009 Cannes. He said,

“Oh, yeah, no. The next movie I’m doing is my WWII movie Inglorious Bastards. I actually just finished the first draft of the script and when I go home I’ll be finishing it up…and if all goes well [pregnant pause] I will be here 2009 at Cannes with my war film INGLORIOUS BASTARDS!!! [applause].”

Most people are calling out B.S and liar on this one as most people do not believe it is possible to go from script to screen in a year for Tarantino, especially when tackling a WWII epic.

Inglorious Bastards will be about a group of Allied soldiers who volunteer for a suicide mission as a reprieve from execution for various misdeeds. Tarantino took the title from this 1978 Enzo Castellari film, though he doesn't intend it as a remake. (You may also reference The Dirty Dozen).

IF this does happen, it will be awesome, but don't get your hopes up.
