Quentin Tarantino directs the upcoming WWII flick, Inglourious Basterds, wherein Brad Pitt plays a redneck collecting Nazi scalps.
After finishing the script on July 2, Quentin flew to France to persuade Brad to play Lieutenant Aldo Raine, the leader of the Basterds.
“We talked about movies into the wee hours of the night,” Brad told reporters in May. “When I got up the next morning, I saw five empty bottles of wine lying on the floor—five!—and something that resembled a smoking apparatus.… And apparently I’d agreed to do the movie.”
When GQ asked Quentin who supplied this apparatus, he says, “That was Brad. He did the fabrication. He can take a Coke can and make it—functional.”
Very crafty, that Brad!
