Quentin Tarantino Renames Kill Bill

Quentin TarantinoQuentin Tarantino‘s next Kill Bill movie will have a different name.

The cult director has revealed he will have to re-title the third in the martial arts action franchise because the title character Bill - who was portrayed by the late actor David Carradine - was killed off at the end of the second movie.

“It wouldn’t be Kill Bill. It would be Volume Three of the story of the Bride.”

The Bride, also known as Beatrice, is the female lead portrayed by Uma Thurman. The 46-year-old filmmaker was also quick to deny the third installation of the bloodied action film will be his next project:

“There’s no script; there are just ideas and notes. I won’t do that next, but it could very well be the thing I do after next. We’re getting there. We’re about one movie away. There’s a lot of idle talk going on out there. At the same time, though, it’s what I’ve been saying from the beginning. That cracks me up, because somebody asked me about it in one of my overseas trips and I said it.”

The director recently revealed that he’s entertaining the thought of another installment. “I’m still looking to possibly returning to the X-Men franchise. I’ve been talking to Fox about it,” Singer said. “I love Hugh Jackman. I love the cast,” he admitted. Brett Ratner was at the helm for 2006’s X-Men: The Last Stand while Gavin Hood directed 2009’s Wolverine.

Quentin Tarantino Completes Inglorious Bastards Script

Tarantino finally finishes Inglorious Bastards script!

HALLELUJAH! Last weekend at the Provincetown Film Festival,

Movie God

writer-director Quentin Tarantino announced that he has finally finished the screenplay for that itty-bitty, unknown war epic called Inglorious Bastards.

With having narrowed a once thousand something-page script down to a more reasonable one under two-hundred, Tarantino stated he was “real happy dude right now.” As a personal Tarantino worshipper, I think it’s safe to say that he’s not the only one.

The film will mark the ground-breaking director’s sixth major feature—his first solo project since Kill Bill: Vol. 2 back in 2004. Like Kill Bill, this upcoming WWII epic will most likely be a two-part saga; unlike his revenge movie, Inglorious Bastards will be his first period piece.
