New Delhi, Nov 19 (ANI): Hong Kong actress Maggie Cheung has confirmed that she has been signed for Quentin Tarantino’’s World War II film “Inglourious Basterds,” but regrets she wont get a chance to share the screen space with Brad Pitt in the movie.

According to reports by Star Daily, the 44-year-old actress said that she would only appear in a couple of scenes.

The Cannes best actress claimed that her role would be challenging because she has to speak French.

Written and directed by the Oscar-winning Tarantino, the lead star in the film is Brad Pitt playing the leader of eight Jewish-American soldiers.

Cheung will play a French woman who owns a cinema in Paris, reports

“My character is very interesting. But it’’s a pity I wouldn”t be able to star in a scene together with Brad Pitt,” said Cheung was quoted as saying.

The film is set for release at next year’’s Cannes Film Festival in May. (ANI)
