The wait could soon be over. Quentin Tarantino has confirmed to Slashfilm that there have been talks with The Weinstein Company to finally release it in limited theatres, maybe as early as next year.
Here is what Tarantino said, (via Slashfilm) when asked about Kill Bill:
What’s going on with that is 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.
Now, I don’t want to get too excited as we know Tarantino has confirmed that that he will proceed with filming the Western, Hateful Eight next year, but it will surely be worth the wait to see this project come to fruition…..I’m a tad more than excited to say the least!
