Pitt is a Basterd!
Aug. 7, 2008
After a few weeks of negotiations, first, Entertainment Weekly kinda confirmed that Brad Pitt is set to star in Quentin Tarantino's WWII drama INGLORIOUS BASTARDS as Lt. Aldo Raine, leader of the titular bastards, but now Nikki Finke of "Deadline Hollywood Daily", The Hollywood Reporter and Variety are all saying it's a done deal so, yeah this Brad Pitt in a QT WWII movie thing is most definitely happening. And he's probably gonna rock the shit out of this role. Further, you can add Pitt to the quickly growing list of bastards who now include Eli Roth, BJ Novak and, if the extra tidbit below is to be believed, Corey Feldman. Hey, if it wasn't a loony mix of actors, it wouldn't be a QT movie.
