Reel Images | Inglourious Basterds

13 12 2008

If you have seen Brad Pitt promoting his upcoming drama, “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button,” you may notice his crazy moustache and haircut and asked, “what gives?” Well we have evidence that Pitt has not lost his fashion swag, but is working on writer/director Quentin Tarantino’s latest film, the WWII war epic “Inglourious Basterds.”

The film begins in German-occupied France, where Shosanna Dreyfus (Mélanie Laurent) witnesses the execution of her family at the hand of Nazi Colonel Hans Landa (Christoph Waltz). She 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 (Diane 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.

In addition to Pitt, the film stars Eli Roth, Julie Dreyfus, Mike Myers, Cloris Leachman, Maggie Cheung and Samuel L. Jackson.

Look for “Basterds” in theaters next year.
