I imagine for the Shoshanna/Zoller scenes, Tarantino will either get Morricone to do something in the vein of Cinema Paradiso OR use an actual track from CP.

Eli Roth is directing the film within a film.

Before the hate rains down, I'm quite intrigued by having someone else direct a film-within-a-film for once. It'll only amplify the experience.

Something I didn't decide to post till now: it's possible that, going by the theory that Reservoir Dogs, True Romance, Pulp Fiction, and Jackie Brown are the "true" Tarantino universe and Kill Bill, From Dusk Till Dawn, and the Grindhouse films were movies which existed in the universe, it's possible Inglorious Basterds takes place in the Tarantino universe in the past.

Case in point: Eli Roth's character, Donnie Donowitz, shares the last name of Lee Donowitz, the Joel Silver-esque producer in True Romance, which could designate Donnie as a relative. Much like other examples (i.e. the Vega brothers, Clarence Worley talking about his boss Lance), this is quite an interesting debate.

Especially if Lee got into making war movies because of his relative's part in the war.

That's a damned interesting theory there...

I seem to recall Quentin Tarantino laying down the rules for his movies.

Paraphrasing, he has his "real universe" where Pulp Fiction, Reservoir Dogs, and True Romance took place. Characters that existed in this universe could know each other or be related, like Vincent and Vic Vega being brothers or Alabama from True Romance being mentioned in Reservoir Dogs.

And then he has his "movie universe" that includes NBK, FDTD, Kill Bill, and presumably Grindhouse. The movies in this universe are movies that exist in QT's "real" universe. These movies can share characters between other movies (like the sheriff in KB showing up in Grindhouse) as well as characters from other movies like Shaft (or Pei Mei in Kill Bill).

And Winston Wolf is the only character who can appear in both universes.

(I seem to recall QT also said that Jackie Brown isn't technically a part of either universe, and that it's part of Elmore Leonard's "universe.")

I thought that the only character that could "move through both universes" was the Sheriff Earl McGraw character from Kill Bill, From Dusk Till dawn, Planet Terror, and Death Proof.

Winston Wolf has only appeared in "Pulp Fiction," but Tarantino has said that he could make appearances in films in either of his universes.

I remember reading an interview online somewhere where the man himself explained all of this... might have been on AICN, but a quick google doesn't seem to show anything.

Ah... here it is: http://www.aintitcool.com/display.cgi?id=9830

At this point I asked Quentin about the Universes that his films take place in. To which Quentin broke it down like so…

JACKIE BROWN takes place in Elmore Leonard’s Universe… not his.

TRUE ROMANCE, RESERVOIR DOGS and PULP FICTION take place in Quentin Universe #1. This universe is REALER THAN REAL.

Meanwhile: His original NATURAL BORN KILLERS script and FROM DUSK TILL DAWN take place in Quentin Universe #2 which is the MOVIE MOVIE universe.

Now according to Quentin, there are specific rules that govern these two Universes of his. For example… Characters from Universe #1 cannot venture into Universe #2, but say Mr Blonde can appear in Pulp Fiction, and Clarence could appear in Res Dogs, but Vincent Vega could never meet the Gecko Brothers or Mickey and Mallory. And in Universe #2 those characters can’t venture into Universe #1, but can go between the films in their universe. Why is this important?

Well, KILL BILL takes place in the MOVIE MOVIE universe… where it is possible that Mickey and Mallory could exist… or the Gecko Brothers. BUT, also in the Movie Movie universe, characters from other movies… folks like BILLY JACK or SHAFT… well they exist in the Movie Movie universe as well. So if Quentin wanted Bruce Lee’s Chen Zhen from FIST OF FURY to appear in KILL BILL… then Chen Zhen could appear, not that Chen Zhen will appear… but it is within the realm of possibility.

GLORIOUS BASTARDS is in Universe #1, the REALER THAN REAL universe, but due to it being set in World War 2, I’d bet money that we won’t see Mr White here. But perhaps his granddad… hehehe…

Quentin then states that there is only ONE character in his Universe that can disobey these rules and that is THE WOLF. THE WOLF can go between the universes because while he exists in the REALER THAN REAL universe… He’s a MOVIE MOVIE character that just exists in reality. And I do not know if he’s in KILL BILL, but I think it odd that he point this out… unless it is possible.

Now, the characters in Universe #1… if they were to go see a movie… They would see the movies of Universe #2.
He explicitly says that Inglorious Bastards is set in "Universe #1" (the real-real universe), but this interview is dated 2001, so it's very possible things could have changed.

Where the fuck is The Wolf seen in besides Pulp Fiction? Is that him only using it as an example?

I'm thrown off by the clean-cutness of the "Basterds". From the script, you get the impression that they haven't bathed for days. Cool pics though.

Pitt's got a total Warren Oates vibe going. Awesome.

This and Watchmen are tied for the distinction. Can't wait.

We've now got a release date(!!!!) :

The Weinstein Company has announced that Quentin Tarantino's sixth movie Inglourious Basterds (the title is spelled as such by the studio and Tarantino), a WWII film starring Brad Pitt, Diane Kruger and Christoph Waltz, will be released on August 21, 2009.

Co-financed by The Weinstein Company with Univeral Pictures, the late summer release will put the movie up against New Line's Final Destination: Death Trip 3D and the comedy The Goods: The Don Ready Story.

Inglourious Basterds begins in German-occupied France, where Shosanna Dreyfus (Mélanie Laurent) witnesses the execution of her family at the hand of Nazi Colonel Hans Landa (Waltz). Shosanna narrowly escapes and flees to Paris, where she forges a new identity as the owner and operator of a cinema.

Elsewhere in Europe, Lieutenant Aldo Raine (Pitt) organizes a group of Jewish soldiers to engage in targeted acts of retribution. Known to their enemy as "The Basterds," Raine's squad joins German actress and undercover agent Bridget Von Hammersmark (Kruger) on a mission to take down the leaders of The Third Reich. Fates converge under a cinema marquee, where Shosanna is poised to carry out a revenge plan of her own...
