Quentin Tarantino has chosen Roth to play a role in his upcoming movie Inglorious Bastards. Unfortunately, it’s not Tim Roth but Tarantino’s friend, director Eli Roth.
Roth is being wooed to play Sgt. Donnie Donowitz, a baseball-wielding nazi hunter. I have to admit that I am disappointed that a different Roth has been in talks to star in this movie. I think Tim Roth should be cast as he is one talented actor. I am still hoping that this is actually a miscommunication and that they are referring to Tim Roth all along.
Brad Pitt is still in negotiations to play Aldo Raine but it looks like Leonardo DiCaprio will not be involved in the movie as Tarantino decided that the part of SS Col. Hans Landa should be played by a German actor.
Quentin Tarantino’s Inglorious Bastards is shaping up to be one hell of a movie.
The as yet to be shot movie is now with Universal Pictures and has recently signed an agreement to partner with the Weinstein Company to produce the movie. Tarantino and Harvey Weinstein actually met with five studios weeks ago and chose between Paramount and Universal. The final decision eventually went Universal’s way.
Tarantino is now meeting with Brad Pitt for the role of Aldo Raine and Leonardo DiCaprio for the role of the Nazi Hans Landa.
Shooting is expected to commence this fall.
Tim Roth is one of the regulars who appeared in Quentin Tarantino movies. Over the last few movies though, Roth has been noticeably absent. Which is actually a bad thing because he is such a wonderful actor. But it looks like Roth and Tarantino is going to reunite once again.
Tarantino’s much publicized World War II epic Inglorious Bastards is currently in pre production and there has been talk that Roth will be returning once again along with another Tarantino favorite, Michael Madsen. In an interview Roth (who will appear as The Abomination in the upcoming Hulk movie) said that he has been hearing the same talk but has yet to speak to Tarantino. he revealed that he and the director have talked about this movie a long time ago and he is hoping that he will become part of it.
