While it's not confirmed by the Weinsteins or Cannes, Variety's Tatiana Siegel has it that Quentin Tarantino's "Inglourious Basterds" is headed to Riviera:

The Brad Pitt starrer, set in Nazi-occupied France, has been invited to play in competition at the Cannes Film Festival. Insiders said Tarantino, a longtime favorite of the French, has accepted the offer and has told the film's backers -- the Weinstein Co. and Universal Pictures -- that the pic will be ready for its world premiere during the May fest.
