The dynamic duo Britney Spears and Quentin Tarantino apparently was a bust/rumor, but that hasn’t stopped others from joining Tarantino’s dark army. Brad Pitt and B.J. Novak have plans to team up against Nazis.
The Office‘s B.J. Novak is in talks for a role in Quentin Tarantino‘s upcoming WWII movie Inglorious Bastards. Novak would play PFC Utivich, one of the soldiers in the director’s long-gestating film about a band of Jewish resisters in Vichy-era France. Brad Pitt is in talks to play the leader of the band of soldiers. Shooting is scheduled to start this fall and wrap in time for Cannes in May 2009.
You know, if it weren’t for Tarantino, I could possibly imagine a decent war movie here. Instead in my head, I get a series of explosions, Novak with about five cigars jammed up his mouth, and Brad Pitt cradled in the bosom of a serpent temptress. I’m not sure if I want to mention that the Nazi’s happen to be killer zombies from the future and Samuel L. Jackson plays black Jesus with an MK47.
