He's working on anime sequence for Kill Bill?


#1

Does anyone know anything about him working on an anime sequence for a release of Kill Bill? I just saw this quote from UMA



Uma Thurman is being oh-so-mysterious when chatting about the next installments of the Kill Bill series, which include two new anime films intended to explain the history of the characters of The Bride and Bill. Uma’s saying that her voice was never recorded for use in the animated bits. Either she’s telling the truth, when she claims, “It has nothing to do with me,” or she’s doing her best to keep Quentin Tarantino’s latest project a secret until its release Thurman explained of the Beatrix Kiddo storyline, “Right now he’s putting the two films together with an intermission with an added anime sequence he had already written.”

Is she retarded or is she telling the truth? No inglorious bastards… He’s working on this crap… anime

Knowing Quentin…it’s probably all bullshit


#3

added anime sequence for The whole bloody affair?



yeah, bring it. 8)


#4

Hopefully hes doing the anime sequence AND Bastards at the same time. All hes really gotta do is write wherever he wants for the IB script. Notice about the anime it said he already had it written.



Maybe it will be Yuki’s Revenge in anime form? :slight_smile:

Have any of you guys read the original Kill Bill script? QT has some pretty raw sequences of Yuki trailing after Beatrix, then a huge ass sequence follows in the suburbs, I’d really like to see that come to life. Here it is:

nail polish.

fast as she can through the twists and turns of the Hollywood

Hills, laughing all the way.



We see Yuki running around all over LA, Hollywood and

Disneyland taking pictures with her disposable Barbie camera.

you can read the rest on the KB script. I think this site has it but every time I try to download one an error happens - so go to:



Drew’s Scripts or something.

wow, that’s years old, dude :wink:

Unused material is always new.

Bio: Not sure if you recall but Seb had the script for Kill Bill before it was even made. He transcribed the whole thing and put it online. It had Yukis Revenge and Can She Bake A Cherry pie? the two chapters that werent in the movie.

Wait, how can he have the Kill Bill script BEFORE it was written by Tarantino? And how did he even get the script to begin with.


#11

Before it was shot. Not before it was written by QT. I cant remember how he got it. Maybe he can tell ya.


#12

So he does have a basement full of illegal immigrants working for him, I knew it!


#13

LOL!

:o



shhhhh!!!



pete’s right though, it’s a not so well kept secret that I leaked the script a few years back. it was either gonna be me or someone else…





back on topic: according to empire/mtv this whole anime thing seems to be kinda true. Which would mean that the whole bloody affair as it will appear on DVD and possible as a theatrical re-release will be different from the version shown in cannes a while ago

This is so cool to hear.


#16

Very cool! Geezuss, why do we have to wait? I’m impatient! Damnit!
