Brad Pitt


The A-list Hollywood actor has been reported to be having some talks with filmmaker Quentin Tarantino to star in his latest action drama, 'Inglourious Basterds'.

With news of Quentin Tarantino throwing his "Inglourious Basterds" script to four major studios buzzing around, another interesting report came out. Words are coming out that the man behind "Kill Bill" has opened the talks with acclaimed actor Brad Pitt to star in the action drama.

The confirmation of the report has been broken out first by Deadline Hollywood Daily's Nikki Finke on July 8. Still, up to date no further details on the matter apart from the talks have been shed. If Pitt indeed joins Tarantino in his latest feature film project, it would be the "Babel" star's second film project connected to the renowned filmmaker. His first was the 1993 crime drama "True Romance" which was scripted by Tarantino.

Concerning "Basterds", earlier it has been said that Tarantino has been looking for major studios to finance and distribute his project. Allegedly, four major Hollywood studios, Universal Pictures, Warner Bros. Pictures, Paramount Pictures and Sony Pictures, have expressed interest in doing so. Despite the fact that Tarantino has offered the script to other studios, the movie is still attached to The Weinstein Company because Harvey Weinstein will still produce it with Laurence Bender.

Telling the story of a band of disgraced U.S. soldier, "Basterds" will follow the World War II soldiers as they are making their way to escape death by embarking on a daring mission to help the Allies fighting off the Nazis. The movie is said to have actors Michael Madsen and Tim Roth attached to the project. It is expected to be finished before its special screening at the 62nd Cannes Film Festival in 2009.
