Quentin Tarantino‘s first period piece about World War II, called “Inglorious Bastards,” may end up at Universal Pictures, according to Variety.
The studio has been negotiating with Weinstein Co. co-chair Harvey Weinstein to see if they can secure the film.
Harvey met with five different studios about finding co-financing and it boiled down to Universal and Paramount.
But Paramount reportedly fell out over its need to take foreign and domestic distribution, which Harvey was unwilling to relinquish unless a special contract were constructed along the lines of how the foreign deal was handled for “Kill Bill.”
Tarantino recently met with Brad Pitt to play the leading role of Aldo Raine, though that deal is said to be a long way from closing. Pitt and Universal will need to make up following bad blood over Pitt dropping out of Universal’s “State of Play” last year at the last second.
Shooting is scheduled to begin on “Inglorious Bastards” in the fall in Germany and France.
