What came across people minds, when the name of Quentin Tarantino is brought out. Some may say "Reservoir Dogs" and "Pulp Fiction", others may relate it to "Kill Bill". Indeed, those movies have the golden touch of the Palme d'Or recipient. Now, the 45-year-old filmmaker is going to attempt on attaching another film to his name.

In an interview at the 61st Cannes Film Festival, the director who is known for his using of nonlinear storylines and stylized violence in his feature films announced that he will be tackling a World War II period film entitled "Inglourious Basterds". Adding to the excitement about the movie that has been rumored to be made for about five years, he confessed that he is planning on previewing the movie at the 62nd Cannes Film Festival.

"Oh, yeah, no. The next movie I'm doing is my WWII movie Inglorious Bastards," said Tarantino when asked about his future project. "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!!!"

Reportedly, "Inglourious Basterds" will center its story on a group of U.S. soldiers who supposedly should be punished with shoot-to-death sentence for their misdeed. But, they are given a chance to pay for their mistakes by going on a suicide mission to the Nazi-occupied France. The movie is said to have Michael Madsen and Tim Roth attached as some of the cast ensemble.
