Diane Kruger is von Hammersmark in Inglorious Bastards
[Update: A full and more accurate quote of Ms Kruger sais "I just received a call from Quentin Tarantino, asking me to be in his next movie." She is currently in negotiations, but has not signed up for the movie. We apologize for our premature reporting. Maybe her looks stunned me too much.]
One of the central characters in Inglorious Bastards will be a German movie star called Bridget von Hammersmark in the script. People magazine spilled a quote by Diane Kruger, the German star who rose to fame in Troy, saying how she’s excited to play just that role in Tarantino’s Inglorious Bastards: I’m very excited. Quentin just called. I play a German movie star but I don’t want to give too much away. This will be the second time the star will be seen together with Brad Pitt, who helmed Troy (Pitt is starring as head bastard Lt. Aldo Raine). She has also already appeared together on screen with Daniel Brühl (he has just been cast as the main Nazi villian Col. Hans Landa). After those ridiculous National Treasure movie she has been in, it will certainly be a delight to see her in a really challenging role in a Tarantino movie. Her role can probably be best understood as a Marlene Dietrich sort of character. Click here for our overview of Inglorious Bastards cast and characters (at least the confirmed names). Stay tuned!
