Sam jackson in kill bill


#1

samuel l jackson has a cameo in kill bill he plays the piano during the church masscre. The role was originaly for sams wife and then they ended up changing how Bill was introduced so shes not in it any more

I don’t know if anyone has thought of this or if it has been posted here before, but i was thinking the other day about Sam Jackson’s cameo in Kill Bill.



What if he plays “Jules” from Pulp Fiction in Kill Bill?  Remember at the end of Pulp Fiction, Jules was going to wander the earth and help people.  Maybe he found religion and ended up playing organ  at the church where The Bride is getting married.



The church is in the middle of nowhere; a good place for Jules to hide from his sordid past



What do ya’ll think?  Possible?


#3

Well, its possible, but lets not make cross-tarantino refrences just yet. :wink:



After we see the movie, and see what he looks like, you could probably judge from the way he is dressed if he is infact and older, wiser, Jules.


#4

I think its cool that after Jules made the choice to ge a holy man and “walk the Earth like Caine in Kung Fu” speech in Pulp that hes going to turn up in Kill Bill and…!! haha, Irony is a bitch aint it? :slight_smile:



Its not Jules tho, because Jules cant jump QT Universes. Only The Wolf can, remember?


#5

Oh yeah. Shit, I thought that would be pretty cool; but only the Wolf transcends. Oh well.


#6

I think this whole jumping of universes thing is a load of bullshit. We’re talkin’ QT here, not fuckin’ “Donnie Darko”. Who was the crackhead who came out with this theory?

QT!

No shit, I didn’t know that. I thought it was some fat movie geek like Harry Knowles or somethin’. But still, I think it would be stupid if QT doesn’t give Sam the “Jules” look only because of this universe thing.

We’ll see, it WOULD be funny if he had the same gheri curl wig as he did in Pulp.

Why isnt Kill Bill in the PF/RD world? I thought Bonnie was to be in Kill Bill… ????

Bonnie isnt in Kill Bill. She was in Yukis Revenge, that chapter was deleted from the final draft.



No “REALER THAN REAL WORLD” characters can hop worlds except for Winston Wolf because according to QT he is the only “MOVIE MOVIE” character than can exist in the “REALER THAN REAL WORLD” as well.



QT’s The Realer Than Real World (Dogs, TR, Pulp) doesnt have super heroes, vampires, kung fu masters, etc in it.



QTs Movie Movie Universe is where people like Pai Mei, the Vampires from FDTD, Hattori Hanzo, The Bride, etc all live. Characters from other cult films exist there as well.



Jackie Brown takes place in neither of those worlds. Its in ELMORE LEONARD’S UNIVERSE.

I know sir! But had Bonnie’s part been included, there would have been a problem with the worlds, now wouldnt there… do you understand what I’m saying to you?

Just because theres a nurse named Bonnie in the screenplay doesnt mean its the same Bonnie from Pulp Fiction. QT has had other characters with same names in his opposite worlds. EX: Scagnetti (RD, NBK). Bonnie is just a name he uses, its not a real character like Vincent Vega or Butch Coolidge.



Do you understand what I’m saying to YOU? 8)


#14

DAMN IT’s GETTING HEATED UP IN HERE!


#15

On the “Reservoir Dogs” SE DVD, there is also a deleted scene where Nice Guy Eddie is talkin’ about a nurse named Bonnie whom he was gonna call to fix Orange up. I guess QT just likes to call all his nurses Bonnie.


#16

W-w-w-w-wait. Hold on a minute. How the fuck do you guys know that only the Wolf transcends universes? Did QT say that or is it written somewhere? And if so, where the fuck have i been?


#17

alright - so maybe Jules has been traveling around the world and become this crazy holy man with certain crazy kung fu/ninja mind powers. Now, maybe when the Vipers attack the church super kung-fu holy man Jules shoots, like lazer eye-beams at them or something!



Man, that would be the coolest thing ever.



…see, this is why i don’t make movies.


#18

Holy shit! You should run that idea by QT. I think he’d really like it. I’m sure he’d use it in a movie somewhere.


#19

Not only was Bonnie supposed to be included in Kill Bill, but the whole Hotel Casino scene was a reference to Pulp Fiction, because remember that when Marcellus calls The Wolf, the wolf is in a hotel room and in the backround theres a craps game going, and i quote from the Pulp Fiction screenplay:



Int. Hotel Suite - Morning



The CAMERA looks through the bedroom doorway of a hotel suite into the main area. We SEE a crap game being played on a fancy crap table by GAMBLERS in tuxedos and LUCKY LADIES infancy evening gowns. The CAMERA PANS to the right revealing: sitting on a bed, phone in hand with his back to us, the tuxedo-clad WINSTON WOLF aka “THE WOLF.”
