‘Inglourious Basterds’ Begins Shooting

A press release from the Weinstein Company today apparently (jokingly?) confirms that the title of Quentin Tarantino's forthcoming Nazi-scalping adventure movie will indeed be spelled the way it was on the typo-congested screenplay: Inglourious Basterds. Also, casting is complete (Cloris Leachman is in it!), and principal photography started last week in Germany, which means Tarantino's insane assurances that this thing would be ready in time for next May's Cannes Film Festival might not have been total bullshit!
