Eli Roth says his co-star Brad Pitt has urged that 'Inglourious Basterds' should be made into a prequel as he and other cast members want to team up with Quentin Tarantino again.
After experiencing the glory of "Inglourious Basterds" in box office chart, Brad Pitt has been said desperate to work on another installment of the drama action movie. Met at the Hamilton Behind the Camera Awards presented by Movieline.com in Hollywood, one of the movie's stars, Eli Roth, told E! Online that the leading actor has expressed his desire to see the prequel of the film.
"All the time, Brad says, 'Prequel, prequel!' All the basterds would jump on it in a second," Roth testified. Dishing on the reason why the depicter of Lieutenant Aldo Raine wants to be involved in another "Inglourious Basterds" project, Roth claimed, "Everybody would drop whatever they're doing to go back to work with Quentin [Tarantino]."
Moreover, Roth informed that there are already materials which can be used as part of the possible prequel. "We have three scenes that we shot in Boston that take place before the war, and Quentin says if he does the prequel, he's going to use them," he stated. "They're not going to be DVD extras." Describing further about the scenes, the actor said, "There's a great scene with me and Cloris Leachman. I go and get her to sign the bat. It's me and the little old Jewish ladies of the neighborhood."
Despite all the positive signs told by Roth, "Inglourious Basterds" prequel has not been confirmed yet as it has to wait for a green light from Tarantino. "He has most of it written, so now it's just a matter of figuring the whole thing out," Roth explained. "Quentin's standards are so high that he won't do it unless he feels like he can do it better than the first one."
Set in German-occupied France, "Inglourious Basterds" begins when Shosanna Dreyfus witnesses the execution of her family at the hand of Nazi Colonel Hans Landa. She then narrowly escapes and flees to Paris, where she forges a new identity as the owner and operator of a cinema and plans a revenge. Elsewhere, Lieutenant Aldo Raine assembles a group of Jewish soldiers known as The Basterds to take down the leaders of The Third Reich. Beside Brad Pitt and Eli Roth, Melanie Laurent, Christoph Waltz, and Samuel L. Jackson are also among the cast ensemble for the movie.
