Chapter Four: After The Slaughter
Despite all the post-Bill talk of reigniting Basterds, Tarantino still couldn’t lock it down, and instead chose to work on developing a kung fu pic entirely in Mandarin and a little project called Grindhouse with Robert Rodriguez.
Getting to work on Grindhouse, Tarantino shoved thoughts of his army aside, but when the exploit-o-fest failed to do well at the box office, he went marching back.
Now intent on getting the film – formally announced as “Inglorious Bastards” – made, Tarantino began to talk specifics.
“I'm going to find a place that actually resembles, in one way or another, the Spanish locales they had in spaghetti westerns — a no man's land,” he told The Hollywood Reporter.
“With American soldiers and French peasants and the French resistance and Nazi occupiers, it was kind of a no man's land. That will really be my spaghetti Western but with World War II iconography.
“But the thing is, I won't be period specific about the movie. I'm not just gonna play a lot of Édith Piaf and Andrews Sisters. I can have rap, and I can do whatever I want. It's about filling in the viscera.”
And it wouldn’t be small, as he informed The Daily Record: "It'll be epic and have my take of the sociological battlefield at that time with the racism and barbarism on all sides—the Nazi side, the American side, the black and Jewish soldiers and the French, because it all takes place in France."
Things were finally moving.
