No cuts for Basterds
Quentin Tarantino cutting INGLORIOUS BASTERDS for American theaters? "No fucking way!," says Harvey Weinstein. One half of the Weinsteins behind the film's US distributor told GQ that the stories of 40-minutes being cut from BASTERDS are "all untrue" and "nuts." He even goes on to insinuate that Sharon Waxman, the writer who first reported about the cuts, as an "insane blogger" (though is "insane" referring to her mental stability or her skillz as a blogger?).
Says Hahvulah, "I was telling Quentin the oppositeó'You should put that shit back in the movie.' Thereís scenes with Brad Pitt and the Basterds, and Iím praying he puts that shit back in, Ďcause itís un-fucking-believably great. Listenóthis movie will be between two hours and twenty minutes and two hours and twenty-seven minutes. I donít think itís going to be shorteróitís just a question of rearranging."
So there. And if what is said above is true, and given Mr. Weinstein's, um, passionate assertion we'll just assume that it is, that would make the theatrical cut only a few minutes shorter than what was shown in Cannes. Rearranging people. That's all.
