The Hollywood Reporter says that German star Til Schweiger (King Arthur, Lara Croft Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life) has also landed a role in Quentin Tarantino’s World War II movie Inglorious Bastards.
The Universal/Weinstein Co. feature revolves around a French girl’s revenge on the Nazis and also follows a band of American Nazi killers. Both story lines eventually converge.
Diane Kruger will portray the part of a glamorous German actress who ends up helping the Nazi hunters infiltrate a movie premiere.
Schweiger will play a member of the Nazi killer team, headed by Brad Pitt’s character, Lt. Aldo Raine.
Others in the cast include Christoph Waltz, Daniel Bruhl, Eli Roth, Mike Myers, Michael Fassbender, B.J. Novak, Samm Levine and Paul Rust.
The film starts shooting in Germany on October 13.
