Jackson joins Basterds

10.31.2008

You know it was just a matter of time - Sam Jackson has joined the cast of Quentin Tarantino's INGLORIOUS BASTERDS. OK well Jackson won't seen on screen alongside Brad Pitt but he'll instead serve as the narrator of the piece where he'll read lines like:

"Needless to say, once the Basterds got heard about him, he never got there."

"For in the other world, the gods only respect the ones they test first. Well Sgt., this is your test. And the gods are watching."

It just wouldn't be a Tarantino film without just a little Sam Jackson in there so I'm glad he's found a place. Also joining the cast is Maggie Cheung who will play Madame Mimieux, the French owner of a cinema where a good deal of action takes place. As The Playlist reports, it is slightly odd that Tarantino cast a Chinese woman to play a French woman but Mimieux speaks fluent French so perhaps it won't be as big a problem as we imagine. BASTERDS is currently shooting for a premiere at the 2009 Cannes Film Festival.

Actually, it is "basterds" with an "e". It seems Tarantino chose to misspell the word in the title of the film. I don't know if it is suppose to be "cool", but that is what he chose to do.

Complaints on grammar...

to everyone clomplaining about the terrible grammar and spelling, the movie is called "Ingluorious Basterds" even with the correct spelling, does it sound like it's an intellectual movie about a bunch of scholars who are going out to calmly negotiate peace? No. It's about a group of illiterate hicks who decide they are going to fight THEIR way. I mean doesn't that make you stop and think maybe it's supposed to be horrid and badly spelled?
