Enzo G. Castellari, the director of the original 1978 “Inglorious Bastards” (aka. “Deadly Mission”), talked with magazine Il VenerdÃ¬ di Repubblica (via Screen Week) about his role in Quentin Tarantino’s upcoming “Inglourious Basterds” which takes an entirely new spin on his classic WW2 exploitation film.
“I play a Nazi General in the movie. In one scene we are in Paris, during the War, and I have to take a lady into a movie theater. Inside the theather there are all the big Nazis like Joseph Goebbles.
They are there to see a new propaganda movie Stolz der Nation (“The Pride of a Country”) that actually is a movie inside our movie, directed by Eli Roth and played by Bo Svenson – my actor in the first “Inglorious Bastards”.
At the screening, you also meet the famous German actress Bridget Von Hammermark (Diane Kruger) and a small group of people who introduce themselves as Italian filmmakers. Brad Pitt says his name is Enzo Girolami and that is my real name! Right in that moment, I am in the same shot, behind Brad.”
Castellari went on about his scene and revealed what sounds like a big moment in the ending and the fate of at least once character. Highlight to view the SPOILER-FILLED QUOTE:
