I don't want to get my hopes too high, but it looks like things have finally started to get rolling (in the right direction) on Quentin Tarantino's Inglorious Bastards.

Universal Looking to Tarantino's Bastards

Universal Pictures is in negotiations to partner with The Weinstein Company to help get Inglorious Bastards to the bigscreen. Though deal points are still being worked out, insiders claim that the partnership is close to guaranteed.

Tarantino and Harvey Weinstein spent the last week meeting with five studios to see about getting one of them to co-finance the film, and the two contenders came down to Paramount and Universal. Paramount was game to distribute the film in foreign territories but later rejected the deal when they couldn't work out how the film's grosses would be accounted for.

Tarantino recently met with Brad Pitt to play the role of Aldo Raine, but no paperwork has been brought out on that just yet. Pitt and Universal will also need to make up after falling out last year over the conniption known as State of Play.
