Inglourious Basterds is an upcoming ensemble war film/spaghetti western written and directed by Quentin Tarantino. It has the largest cast of characters (with speaking roles) of any Tarantino film to date and is currently in oost production (film was shot in several locations, among them Germany and France. Tarantino plans to complete production of Inglourious Basterds in time for release at the Cannes Film Festival in May 2009. Filming began in October 2008. The title (and partial premise) of the upcoming film is inspired by Italian director Enzo Castellari's 1978 movie Inglorious Bastards. The Weinstein Company has slated August 21, 2009, as the tentative U.S. release.

Enzo G. Castellari has said that Tarantino "wrote him a small part in the script."He has been seen walking around the set wearing a Nazi costume.
Tarantino originally talked to Simon Pegg about playing Lt. Archie Hicox, but the actor had to drop out due to scheduling difficulties[43] having already agreed to appear in Spielberg's Tintin adaptation. However, Pegg did make Tarantino promise to cast him in his next film.[44] Also, Tarantino originally sought for Leonardo DiCaprio to be cast as Hans Landa,[45] a poetic Nazi colonel targeted by the resistance.[26] The director then decided to instead have the character played by a German actor.[27] The role ultimately went to Christoph Waltz, an actor of Austrian descent.
