Variety reports that Quentin Tarantino’s Inglorious Bastards is searching for a co-financing partner to handle offshore territories for the WWII drama with intersecting storylines.
The director met with Brad Pitt in France on Tuesday to talk about the possibility of Pitt playing the key role of Aldo Raine. Tarantino also plans to meet with Leonardo DiCaprio for another lead role, that of Hans Landa, on Thursday.
DiCaprio and Pitt would be appearing in a Tarantino-helmed project for the first time, though Pitt previously spoke Tarantino-scripted dialogue in a small but memorable stoner turn in the Tony Scott-directed True Romance.
The film will shoot this fall in Germany and also in France, where Pitt and Angelina Jolie have been residing.
