Quentin Tarantino has been promising to release Kill Bill: The Whole Bloody Affair for years, and it might FINALLY be happening!
While attending SDCC 2014, the Pulp Fiction, Reservoir Dogs and Inglourious Basterds director held a Q&A session which involved something pretty surprising news: a planned, Weinstein Company-backed release of a Kill Bill cut, that would include both movies and a 30-minute O-Ren Ishii (Lucy Lui) anime section, is more than likely on its way. Incredible.
Apparently, it'd be called Kill Bill: The Whole Bloody Affair. Tarantino explained exactly how that sequence came to be:
Originally back when Kill Bill was going to be one movie, I wrote an even longer anime sequence. So you see in the movie [O-Ren] kill her boss but then there was that long hair guy…
The big sequence was her fighting that guy. I.G. [The Japanese Anime Studio] who did Ghost in the Shell said we can’t do that and finish it in time for your thing. And [plus] you can’t have a thirty-minute piece in your movie. I said okay. It was my favorite part but it was the part you could drop. So we dropped it and then later when I.G. heard we were talking about doing Kill Bill: The Whole Bloody Affair — they still had the script so without even being commissioned, they just did it and paid for it themselves. It’s really terrific.
Anyway, The Weinstein Company and myself were talking about actually coming out with it sometime, not before the year is out, but within the next year with limited theatrical engagement as well.
Here's a little taste of what we can expect:
Would you go and watch Tarantino's Kill Bill supercut?
