New papa Brad Pitt has officially enlisted in Quentin Tarantino's World War II action-drama 'Inglorious Bastards,' ET confirms.
Brad will play a Tennessee hillbilly who assembles a team of prisoners-turned-soldiers to battle the Nazis in a 'Dirty Dozen'-like scenario. The project reunites the 'Pulp Fiction' filmmaker and Pitt, who had a small but memorable role as a stoner in the Tarantino-written 'True Romance.'
"The Office" star BJ Novak is in talks for a role in the film and 'Hostel' director Eli Roth (who appeared in Tarantino's 'Grindhouse' thriller 'Death Proof') has already been cast. Production is slated to begin on October 13 in Germany on the long-awaited re-imagining of the '70s Italian film by director Enzo G. Castellari.
