Alex Ward, former Inofficial Kill Bill Fansite webmaster, attended a special Kill Bill screening yesterday, where Tarantino talked a bit.
Here are some things he remembered:
AlexMWard: he explained, for example, why hattori hanzo no longer makes swords… he says that Bill was once his student, and hattori loved him like a son, but he soon realized that bill was moving toward evil and when bill became completely corrupt, hattori knew he had to kill bill, but couldn’t – because he still loved him like a son, to make up for his inactivity, he decided to just quit making weapons all together, and that’s why he is willing to make one for the bride – so she can do what he was unable to do
AlexMWard: someone also asked him about vega brothers, and he was like – "I didnt think I was going to do it, but now I’m not so sure. I thought it was too late and that the actors were getting too old, but then I figured out a way around that, but I’m not gonna tell you what that way is…"
AlexMWard: so vega brothers is back as a "maybe"
tarantino.info: make way for the "vega brothers animated series"
tarantino.info: "featuring the original voices by Michael Madsen and John travolta"
AlexMWard: he said he is definitely working on inglorious bastards and that he plans on using some contemporary music like a rap song
AlexMWard: he said that he rap songs picked out for it… sooooo yah. he also said that he is definitely thinking about making another Bride movie in a few years about nikki getting her revenge
AlexMWard: and he talked endlessly about the influences in the film. he is still editing volume 2. he said he has the first 40 minutes all done
AlexMWard: when it was over he said “a movie theater is a sacred place, I don’t sign SHIT here”. he said “when i was writing this, I thought – if uma was laying in a bed for four years in some hospital, people would be fucking her!!” that was his explanation for the rape stuff. then he started joking “I used to do the same thing, back in my truck driving days… best piece of pussy I ever got, strangely enough!”
