Quentin Tarantino to Release Kill Bill’s “The Whole Bloody Affair”
Tarantino's full version of the Kill Bill saga is coming soon.
For those who were annoyed at the fact that Kill Bill split into two parts, Quentin Tarantino assures that you the move was not his original plan. While at the San Diego Comic-Con on the Dynamite Entertainment panel, Tarantino gave some information about Kill Bill: The Whole Bloody Affair, saying:
What’s going on with that is originally back when Kill Bill was going to be one movie, I wrote an even longer anime sequence. So you see in the movie [O-Ren] kill her boss but then there was that long hair guy… The big sequence was her fighting that guy. I.G. [The Japanese Anime Studio] who did Ghost in the Shell said we can’t do that and finish it in time for your thing. And [plus] you can’t have a thirty-minute piece in your movie. I said okay. It was my favorite part but it was the part you could drop. So we dropped it and then later when I.G. heard we were talking about doing Kill Bill: The Whole Bloody Affair — they still had the script so without even being commissioned, they just did it and paid for it themselves. It’s really terrific. Anyway, The Weinstein Company and myself were talking about actually coming out with it sometime, not before the year is out, but within the next year with limited theatrical engagement as well.
Initially, Kill Bill debuted at the Cannes Film Festival in 2003 as a singular work, but the run time of four hours caused the The Weinstein Co. to make the split. While both parts of the film are dope, we would still like to see a complete singular cut of the film, with the long-ass 30-minute anime sequence included.
