Hollywood actor Michael Madsen has confirmed director Quentin Tarantino's all-star line-up for his highly-anticipated war movie INGLORIOUS BASTARDS.

Madsen, who has collaborated with the maverick filmmaker on Reservoir Dogs and the Kill Bill movies, will star in the Second World War film alongside TIM ROTH, and comics Adam Sandler and Eddie Murphy.

The casting of Murphy will surprise many fans, as starring in a Tarantino production would signal a desire to step away from appearing in family films such as Daddy Day Care and voicing an animated character in the Shrek movies.

Madsen tells movie website EMPIREONLINE.CO.UK, "It's myself and Tim Roth, Adam Sandler, and Eddie Murphy."
