Just like he promised a year ago, when everyone collectively scoffed, but Quentin Tarantino says his WWII Nazi-scalping flick, starring Brad Pitt, will be ready for Cannes 2009.
According to the flimsy anonymous insider in this Variety report, Tarantino has accepted an invitation to screen the movie in competition at the famed French film festival.
Here’s the rub: “Both the Weinstein Co. and U declined comment. Cannes organizers, who will announce the fest’s lineup April 23, could not immediately be reached.”
Cannes will take place from May 13-24. Inglorious Basterds will hit theaters on August 21, regardless.
