Tarantino sparks confusion over film title

Quentin Tarantino's upcoming movie 'Inglorious Bastards' has caused confusion among film fans after the spelling of its title was changed.

The movie - starring Brad Pitt - was originally billed with the standard spelling 'Inglorious Bastards' - but studio bosses at Universal Pictures have now changed the name to 'Inglourious Basterds'.

A spokesman for the film's British publicists says, "We are not entirely sure the reasons why it has been changed. We think it just has to be one of those Tarantino-esque things.

"All we do know is that is definitely the title from now on."

The film is due for release next year.
