Vanity Fair‘s Brigitte Lacombe was able to visit the set of Quentin Tarantino‘s vicious WWII movie, Inglourious Basterds. On this visit, many great images were taken of some of the various cast members which you will be able to enjoy right here.
Inglourious Basterds is getting ready to make its unexpected and Tarantino-promised Cannes Film Festival debut. Very few of us thought that this would actually be happening last year when the unpredictable director made his guarantee, but alas, the man pulled it off with flying colors and a few flying Nazi scalps and we couldn’t be more excited.
As we all know, the movie follows a pair of storylines — one following a band of Jewish-American soldiers on a special mission to brutally dispatch of Nazi soldiers; the other following a young Jewish girl who escapes a Nazi attack and attempts to rebuild her life as a theater owner.
Us regular folk will have to wait until August 21, 2009 to see the movie, and that’s fairly depressing, but for now you can check out these images and wait to see what the feedback is from Cannes!

Omar Ulmer, and Christopher Waltz as Colonel Hans Landa along with Laurent, Pitt, and Kruger.
