Quentin Tarantino has been spewing to The New York Times about his latest joint Inglourious Basterds, which is to premiere at Cannes on May 20th. He called it his "men on a mission" movie and added: "you’ve got to make a movie about something, and I’m a film guy, so I think in terms of genres," he said. "So you get a good idea, and it just moves forward and then usually by the time you’re finished, it doesn’t resemble anything of what might have been the inspiration. It’s simply the spark that starts the fire." Tarantino also spoke of possible sequels and prequels, with another film about guys ripping through racist Southern America in the 1950's: "once the Basterds get through with Europe, they could go to the South and do it to the Kluxers in the ’50s. That’s another story you could tell." He also has another idea for a prequel, that was actually a subplot in Basterds, before it was shelved, about African American soldiers stuck behind enemy lines: "I have a half-written prequel ready to go if this movie’s a smash." Inglourious Basterds is due for release here in August.
