Samuel L. Jackson will reteam with his “Pulp Fiction” and “Jackie Brown” director Quentin Tarantino for the forthcoming WWII film “Inglorious Basterds” (Yes, ‘Basterds’ with an ‘e’), according to film blog The Playlist.
The movie is a remake of the 1977 Italian movie about a group of American soldiers who are attacked by Germans while being escorted to military prison. The story follows five of the prisoners who managed to escape.
Jackson will reportedly serve as a narrator for the updated version, which is due in theaters next year. The blog site reports of Jackson being “present only in a few spots (beginning page 24), but [he] mostly pops up at random times in the script to add some context and background info.”
Jackson’s latest film is “Soul Men,” starring opposite the late Bernie Mac. The two play estranged members of a one-time R&B group that reunites to honor another bandmate who recently died.
