Venkman here and it looks like Brad Pitt is going to play Lt. Aldo Rain A.K.A Aldo the Apache in Quentin Tarantinos upcoming WWII flick 'Inglorious Bastards'. This is a great move for everyone involved. They have their first A list star and I think he is going to be able to bring this character to life in an amazing way. It is different from anything that Pitt has ever done before and I can't wait to see him as the Apache. This is what EW has to say:
Inglorious Bastards has finally found its star -- and its home. Reps for Brad Pitt confirm that the prolific father is in negotiations to play Lieut. Aldo Raine.
Tarantino is still working on getting Leonardo DiCaprio to play The Jew Hunter. I am pretty sure that will work out as well. This will be the first WWII movie for Tarantino, Pitt, and Dicaprio. Each character is very original and will be a new type of experience for everyone involved. The script was amazing, I can only imagine the movie is going to be even more awesome.
