I read this on the MonkeyPeaches website this morning and what a way to start off a morning. I would love for Quentin to remake “The 36th Chamber Of Shaolin” also known as “Master Killer”. “The 36th Chamber Of Shaolin” without a doubt is one of the greatest martial arts films ever made. I hope he does this after “Bastards”. Ã‚Â
Quentin Tarantino Wants To Remake THE 36TH CHAMBER OF SHAOLIN With Shaw Brothers
October 1, 2003
According to Hong Kong paper Oriental Daily, Quentin Tarantino is thinking about doing a remake of The 36th Chamber of Shaolin, one of his favorite Shaw Brothers’ classics. He even hired its leading man Liu Chia-Hui to play two characters in Kill Bill Vol.1/2 - Chinese kung-fu Master Pai Mei (White Eyebrows) and the head of Japanese yakuza “Crazy 88” fighter. According to the paper, Shaw Brothers has asked Quentin to do the remake and he has agreed. But it would not be possible until 2006 according to his schedule.
In an interview Quentin did over a year ago in Beijing, he said he would like to do a Chinese kung-fu film. He said, “I have that thought all the time, but not this one (Kill Bill). I think I will make one in the future. Certainly will be shot in China but in American way and with Chinese American as the leads. That?s because it?s impossible to blend Hong Kong actors and (mainland) Chinese actors into the whole movie. Chinese Americans are still Americans. By this way, all characters will speak the same language with the same accent. I want to shoot something of my own.”
