Brad Pitt's upcoming film 'Inglourious Basterds' will have its debut screening at France's prestigious Cannes Film Festival next month
Brad Pitt is going to Cannes.
The 45-year-old actor's upcoming movie 'Inglourious Basterds' will debut at the prestigious Cannes Film Festival in May.
Set during World War II, the film - which is directed by Quentin Tarantino - is a cross between an action/adventure movie and a spaghetti western.
The movie - which also stars Samuel L. Jackson, Mike Myers and Diane Kruger - follows a group of Jewish-American commandos who are fighting Nazis in France.
Tarantino - who won the festival's top prize, the Palme d'Or, in 1994 for 'Pulp Fiction' - has been working on the film for nearly 10 years.
It is believed the director has promised the Weinstein Company and Universal the film will be ready to premiere at the French festival on May 13.
He has also allowed it to be entered in the awards section of the event.
'Inglourious Basterds' is due to be released worldwide from August.
