With Hollywood actor Brad Pitt on the hot seat of the rumored casting, news coming from the latest movie project from Quentin Tarantino supposedly couldn't get any better than that, but it just did. Giving an update to "Inglourious Basterds", the filmmaker known for his works underlining nonlinear storylines and stylized violence has shared a preview to the World War II film.
Posted firstly by Latino Review, the so-called script consisted of five chapters and tell an intertwined story of a squadron of soldiers led by Lieutenant Aldo Raine whose part allegedly has been offered to Pitt and a French Jewish teenager by the name of Shosanna. The soldiers are given the order to go behind the enemy lines and blow up a movie theater in Paris because it is premiering a propaganda war film by Hitler's right hand man, Goebble. Little that they know, Shosanna, who survives the massacres of her family by the Jew hunter Colonel Hans Landa, is attending the premiere with one surprising plan for the Nazi in mind.
Aside from giving out the general information about the story, the site also let out the second chapter's opening which contains Raine's monologue. Part of the monologue read, "My name is Lt. Aldo Raine, and I'm putting together a special team. And I need me eight soldiers. Eight - Jewish - American - Soldiers. Now y'all might have heard rumors about the armada happening soon. Well, we'll be leavin a little earlier. We're gonna be dropped into France, dressed as civilians. And once we're in enemy territory, as a bushwackin' guerilla army, we're gonna be doin one thing, and thing only, Killin Nazi's." The complete monologue can be read at Latino Review.

The production of the tidbit has been scheduled to start in October to make it ready before the planned premiere at the 62nd annual Cannes Film Festival in 2009.
