[quote]Harry Knowles said it was Julie who cut the baseball in half with a sword for the movie. No CGI needed, Julie did it for real. Too bad there won’t be any B-Roll Footage of the scene cause nobody is going to believe it.
A pity that Quentin didn’t think about having a team shooting some behind the scene footage for the DVD (more then the PR stuff).[/quote]
A tad late to respond as such but the hell with it.
According to Harry’s set reports it was
Zoe Bell(Uma’s stunt double) who did that stunt.
Here’s an excerpt from Harry’s
sixth set report:
[quote]IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ve never seen anything so cool in my life. Sonny Chiba just threw a baseball at Uma ThurmanÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s head and she cut it in halfÃ¢â‚¬Â¦ No strings, no break away ballsÃ¢â‚¬Â¦ the baseball was real, the danger was real and holy shit, it really got cut in half.
I was just shaking. I meanÃ¢â‚¬Â¦ ya know? Like, wow. Suddenly Uma turns around to reveal that it is Zoe, UmaÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s stunt double. IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m now literally in the temple of Zoe worship.
