Tarantino's Inglorious Basterds (sic) looks like it will be awesome

That's really the first page of it. 

About a month ago, there was a leak of Quentin Tarantino's script for his World War II opus, Inglorious Bastards. We have it, but we haven't read it yet or anything. From what we hear, though, it does sound like the usual Tarantino fare - references to the history of filmmaking, violence, conversation, strong women, and, apparently, the spelling and grammar of an ADD middle-schooler. He misspelled the title on the main page!

Anyway, the movie's set to begin shooting soon, and there's quite a cast lined up. Brad Pitt was reportedly Tarantino's choice to play Aldo Raine, a southern Lieutenant who says things like this, and now Pitt has officially signed on, his first film with Tarantino (they seem like they'd work well together, don't they? Or is that just us?) Joining him, according to reports will be the great Simon Pegg (of Hot Fuzz, Shaun of the Dead, and Spaced fame), the great David Krumholtz (who's appeared in lots of stuff), Nastassja Kinski, The Office's BJ Novak (really? Mr. Blank Slate?), and horror-porn director Eli Roth. Tarantino wanted Leonardo DiCaprio to play one of the Nazi officers, but changed his mind and determined a German actor should play the role instead.
