I heard somewhere that Quentin wanted to make (well,not exactly Quentin would make it, be he’d put it out there) an anime about the origins of Bill. Can anyone put any justice to this?
Search function: Bill + anime result:
Someone posted this imdb article at killbill2.net, in which David Carradine states that Pretty Rikii and Bill are the same person
"1. He said that QT told him that
the killer of O-Ren’s parents in the cartoon was indeed BILL. Apparently QT specifically requested this from the animators.
So the story would go, that O-Ren, becoming professional herself, forgives Bill as she understands that it was simply “business” and accepts his offer to work with him.
2. He confirmed that the sequel is a definitely serious idea and that Sofie Fatale raises Coppertop’s daughter, Nikki (who’s name i believed since my first viewing as inspired by NIKITA) who eventually seeks her vengeance on Bea. It’s safe to assume that she succeeds, for he went on the say BB would then seek vengeance on Nikki.
He also mentioned that when the idea of the sequels (yes, plural) was thrown about, QT whinged that it’d be hard because everyone was dead.
Mr Carradine continued by speculating that Elle Driver may have the training, skill and connections to not only get out of the trailer and desert, but also heal and seek vengeance of her own and that this may be a possible reason QT changed the original script (where she dies) to just losing the other eye. He also admitted about not knowing of this change until a while after it ws shot.
3. Mr Carradine also mentioned plans of a PREQUEL, which’ll detail Bill’s life from the age of 13, and that this will be entirely animated.
4. He also confirmed that his fight scene with Michael J White was completely shot and will be included in the DVD.
5. He claims he brought the flute into training fo this movie to play when warming up. This apparently inspired QT to incorporate the flute in the Chapel Massacre chapter. He also was supposed to tell Bea about Pei Mai while roasting marshmellows in the fire but it didn’t work, so they tried the flute again, whic hthis time was brought onto the set just to have lying in the background.
I was very surprised by the above and found Mr Carradine an entertaining speaker."
