Tarantino and Pitt have never worked together before
Actor Brad Pitt has joined the cast of Quentin Tarantino's next film Inglorious Bastards, reports say.
The star is expected to play Lieutenant Aldo Raine, the head of the Jewish resistance in the World War II film, according to trade papers.
Simon Pegg, best known for Hot Fuzz and Run Fatboy Run, has also reportedly begun discussions to join the cast.
Filming for the movie begins in October in Germany and it is expected to be unveiled in Cannes next year.
Producer Lawrence Bender told The Hollywood Reporter that Pitt and Tarantino would make a formidable partnership.
"They're going to push each other and really help make something special," he said.
The film is being made by Weinstein Company and Universal.
