Quentin Tarantino’s European campaign continues, as big names keep getting attached to his World War II screenplay, Inglorious Bastards. First Tarantino flew to France to pitch Brad Pitt just days after Pitt’s twins were born, and now Leonardo DiCaprio is meeting with Tarantino Thursday to discuss the project, according to Variety.
The role? Nazi Colonel Hans Landa, a.k.a. the “Jew Hunter,” the movie’s chief villain. Will DiCaprio accept the part? Can he speak fluent French, German, and Italian, as the screenplay requires? Most important, how will DiCaprio’s Nazitude compare to fellow box-office titan Tom Cruise’s in Valkyrie? Will Leo be meaner? More Teutonic? Will he speak in a thicker accent? Will he wear two eye patches? We can’t wait to find out!Tarantino to DiCaprio: ‘Don’t Be Stupid, Be a Smarty, Come and Join the Nazi Party!’
