Quentin Tarantino has confirmed that he is working on a new version of “Kill Bill”.
The filmmaker had originally intended the movie to be released as one complete film, but split it into two volumes due to the four-hour running time.
Tarantino told fansite Tarantino.info that he is putting together a new animated segment for the film, which will be titled Kill Bill: The Whole Bloody Affair.
“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 explained.
“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 it’s this little seven-minute sequence, it’s really cool, it’s in the O-Ren chapter.”
The director went on say that the new Kill Bill cut will be similar to the one screened at the Cannes FIlm Festival in 2002.
“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 cliffhanger and the tags,” he said. “It’s more like a big ’60s movie with the intermission.”
