More Kill Bill on the way

It’s been a few years since Kill Bill, and while Quentin Tarantino is now busy with Inglourious Basterds, his thoughts have turned to releasing a complete, one-movie version of the Bride’s vengeance one DVD.

If you’ve been waiting to see a complete, welded together version of Kill Bill, you might not have much longer to wait, since QT tells fan site that he’s been planning it for a while.

There’s even some new footage – albeit animated – to look forward to. “We did a whole little chapter that I wrote and designed for the animated sequence, that we never did, because we figured, back when it was gonna be one big movie, it was going to be too long, so we didn’t do it,” he says.”

O-Ren chapter

“So when we were talking about re-releasing it, they asked is there anything you can put in, and I said no I put everything in there, but… there’s one sequence that we wouldn’t even have to shoot! So we got together with Production IG and did it, and it’s really cool. So it’s this little seven minute sequence, it’s really cool, it’s in the O-Ren chapter.”

So can we expect the full, original, screened-in-Cannes cut? “The version in Cannes was the way it will be, recut to be one movie, with an intermission, as supposed to two separate ones with the cliff-hanger and the tags. “It’s more like a big 60s movie with the intermission. Oh, you’ll just have to see it!”

We can hear Battle Without Honor Or Humanity starting up in our heads right now…
