Inglorious Glory

In my review of Quentin Tarantino's "Death Proof" I made mention of the possibility that his next project would be his long-rumored WWII film "Inglorious Bastards". It's the one I've been hoping he would take a crack at and, apparently, according to Paige Newman's article on msnbc.com this is coming to fruition, and with a great deal of positive buzz surrounding the screenplay to accompany it.

The article also makes mention of "restoring" the Q.T. buzz. I'm not precisely sure when or where it was lost. Yes, "Death Proof" was a bit weak but, seriously, his 5 films prior to that were all fantastic and his last two - the "Kill Bill" films - were, I would argue strenuously, his finest. I don't think his buzz needs to be "restored" at all. I'm uber-excited for "Inglorious Bastards" and have total faith in the man, even if he cast, say, Jessica Simpson as Eva Braun and enlisted Brett Ratner as First Assistant Director.
