EXCL: Tim Roth Still Interested in Inglorious Bastards
June 10, 2008
Quentin Tarantino recently revealed at the Cannes Film Festival that he had finished his draft script for war epic Inglorious Bastards and was ready to begin pre-production. He was also scheduled to appear at Alamo Drafthouse's Rolling Roadshow in Spain but pulled out so that he could concentrate on the film.
Tim Roth has been rumored to have a role in the film alongside Michael Madsen for a long time. This Friday, Roth can be seen as Emil Blonsky/The Abomination in The Incredible Hulk, and we asked him if he had an update.
"I keep hearing about it, but we haven't talked about it," Roth said. "It's a thing that me and Quentin talked about a long time ago so we'll see. I hope so," he said as he crossed his fingers.
In Inglorious Bastards, a band of U.S. soldiers facing death by firing squad for their misdeeds are given a chance to redeem themselves by heading into the perilous no-man's lands of Nazi-occupied France on a suicide mission for the Allies.
