After much digging and emailing, I finally got my hands on the official 165-page screenplay of Inglorious Bastards, of course written and directed by fanboy and girl favorite Quentin Tarantino, starring Brad Pitt, and other yet to be named actors (although one rumor I'm hearing is that Samuel L Jackson could have a major role in it as well).
This will be Tarantino's next film, which he plans on debuting at the Cannes Film Festival next May. I wrote about the film previously on this blog. See RELATED below to read both posts.
I've read a few reviews of others who have read the script, and their excitement over it is palpable! Aside from the obvious grammatical errors, which many think were done intentionally, the consensus is that it's a hell of a script and should make a hell of a movie - a Tarantino movie of course, and all that being a Tarantino movie means.
However, as I've previously stated, I've never really been a big Tarantino fan. His brand of cinema isn't necessarily my cup of tea. But, I'll admit that the man knows how to entertain an audience, and has certainly won a lot of people over with his work behind the camera.
So, I'm going to read this baby - all 165 pages of it - hopefully before the end of the weekend, and I'll post my thoughts on it afterwards! And don't be fooled by the cover above left - it's not a handwritten script. Just the cover :o)
If you'd like to get a copy of the screenplay for yourself, follow the links below. Although they may not be available for very long for obvious reasons, so if you click on them and you aren't able to download the files, that means they've probably been removed. If that happens, post a comment here letting me know and I'll upload my copy somewhere online for download!
Here are the links. The script is split up into 2 parts:
- Someone's Already Read Tarantino's 'Inglorious Bastards Script
- 'Inglorious Bastards' - Another WWII Movie
