Kill bill


Recommended Posts

Right, I just merged 12 Kill Bill Threads together just so I knew where to post this info! :)


As Inglourious Basterds draws ever closer (get excited now), Quentin Tarantino is out doing the promotional rounds. At an event in Beverly Hills yesterday he was asked about the upcoming special edition releases of two of his past projects and Sci-Fi Wire got the quotes.

So, what has happened to Kill Bill: The Whole Bloody Affair? It seems that the DVD release really is coming ever closer, and work continues on the film all the while. Could we have this thing in our hands soon? Here’s the man himself:

I’m not going to monkey around with the movie itself, but we’ve actually done a whole new section for the anime as the last thing . I actually wrote a much longer script for the anime section during O-Ren’s revenge chapter… I had the whole script written out shot for shot what it would be, so [i said], “Harvey, this literally would make it complete. This is everything I came up with and wrote when I wrote it.” So Production IG just did it, and I just need to work with them a little bit and go over it with them—and I’ll do that once this is officially behind me.

Yep, they’ve already done it. Production IG and Tarantino fans rejoice.

Now, unless he needs to overhaul their work this means Tarantino has finally put together the Kill Bill he originally intended. That Blu-Ray sounds like one of the best Christmas gifts I can imagine.

That’s not the only Tarantino project to be cut in two however, with the current DVD releases of Grindhouse in most of the world splitting the double bill apart (not to mention many of the theatrical releases). Is that one about to be reconstituted too? Not right now, no:

We’ve just been lazy getting around to Grindhouse, the full edition.

He admits it. And the inference is, of course, that he’ll get round to it in due course. I’m setting my expectations for 2015.

Tarantino Sets Kill Bill 3

Entertainment Weekly reports that, while appearing on the Italian talk show Parla Con Me, Tarantino said "he will make another installment of his successful Kill Bill series, but that he wants there to be a 10-year break between the second and third film."

"That would put Kill Bill 3 with a 2014 release date and his star Uma Thurman at 44, just the right age to kick more ass," EW points out.

Maybe by then we'll finally see the home video release of Kill Bill: The Whole Bloody Affair, the long-awaited box set that would combine both Kill Bill Vol. 1 and Kill Bill Vol. 2 into one big film. Or perhaps now Tarantino will wait even longer to release it so as to include the third film in it.

What might the story be for the third installment? Well, Tarantino himself has reportedly said that a sequel might revolve around Nikki Bell's quest to avenge the death of her mom Vernita Green (Vivica A. Fox) at the hands of The Bride in Vol. 1. Rumors swirled at the time of the first film's release that Tarantino had shot additional scenes with Ambrosia Kelley, the actress who played young Nikki, because he wanted to use the character in a future sequel.

/Film reported in June 2007 that Kill Bill executive producer E. Bennet Walsh revealed that Tarantino had "formulated the plots for two sequels which he plans to film in China. According to our friends at FilmIck, Kill Bill: Volume 3 would be the revenge story of two Crazy 88s killers whose arms and eyes were hacked by Uma Thurman in the first volume. Kill Bill Volume 4 would than focus on the battle between the daughters of Beatrix Kiddo and Vernita Green, an idea which Tarantino had been very vocal about during the film's theatrical release."
