Inglorious Bastards, Pitt to star

Brad Pitt has joined the cast for Tarantino’s next film – a remake of Inglorious Bastards – as Lt. Aldo Raine who “leads a band of soldiers as they seek vengeance on Nazis in German-occupied France.” The synopsis for Inglorious Bastards is as follows:

A band of US soldiers facing death by firing squad for their misdeeds are given a chance to save themselves – by heading into the perilous no-man’s lands of Nazi-occupied France on a suicide mission for the Allies.

Shooting will begin in October and should be in theaters by June, 2009.

Perhaps even more exciting than Pitt starring in a Tarantino film is the fact that Simon Pegg (Shawn of the Dead, Hot Fuzz) “is in talks to join the cast.”
