Quentin Tarantino’s Inglorious Bastards will be two movies

Quentin Tarantino did a 40-minute interview with Enzo Castellari, director of the original Inglorious Bastards for the film’s upcoming three disc special edition DVD release and AICN has a detailed rundown of the interview. Included in the interview is the news that Tarantino’s Inglorious Bastards (which is loosley based on Castellari’s film) will be two movies. ┬áCheck out the highlights after the jump.

Here are some highlights from the AICN article:

  • The premise is the basic jumping off point from Enzo’s original – that you had a bunch of hardened criminals on a military transport during World War II – that got ambushed by the Nazis. Everyone but the criminals gets killed and the prisoners decide to make their way to neutral Switzerland – and must fight the Nazis and the Allies to get there. It’s a true No Man’s Land scenario.
  • Well, as Quentin has been writing this – he’s done so much research into the actual events of World War II as well as the cinema of World War 2 – that the story kept growing and growing. It became too big for one film – so he’s turned it into 2. That’s right, INGLORIOUS BASTARDS will be two movies… not unlike KILL BILL.
  • The opening sequence of Quentin’s film is apparently going to be something extraordinary – as Enzo Castellari was geeking out big time just thinking about what Quentin had told him. Classic.
  • Also – during the interview – as Quentin began talking about Enzo’s use of Slow Motion – Enzo’s enthusiasm for the technique all but convinced Quentin to stage what he has called a sequence in his film – as an epic slow motion scene – but he was still debating it.
