Inglourious Basterds Sequel In The Works

Movie mogul HARVEY WEINSTEIN is already preparing a sequel to QUENTIN TARANTINO's forthcoming war movie INGLOURIOUS BASTERDS, despite branding lead actor BRAD PITT's work "the worst performance of his life".
Weinstein, one of the film's executive producers, wasn't impressed by Pitt's portrayal of an American lieutenant who leads a team of Jewish soldiers in World War II.
And he insists the film is so odd and difficult to categorise that fans will either love or hate it.
In a bizarre rant with GQ magazine, Weinstein says, "It isn't funny; it isn't exciting; it isn't a realistic war movie, yet neither is it an entertaining genre spoof or a clever counterfactual wartime yarn. It isn't emotionally involving or deliciously ironic or a brilliant tissue of trash-pop references. Nothing like that.
"Brad Pitt gives the worst performance of his life, with a permanent smirk as if he's had the left side of his jaw injected with cement, and which he must uncomfortably maintain for long scenes on camera without dialogue."
But the film's cast and Weinstein himself are so excited about the film's release, the producer is already putting together plans for its sequel: "Brad wants to do Inglourious II. We all want to do it. And the movie hasn't even come out yet."

All of the above Basterds bashing was done by Peter Bradshaw of the Guardian UK in a Cannes review, not Weinstein. Only the sequel info is actually from GQ.Way to write an article, you hacks.
