"Kill Bill: The Whole Bloody Affair" might be released within the next year
At last wekend's San Diego Comic Con, during his Dynamite Entertainment panel, Quentin Tarantino was asked again about when fans will finally see the combined Kill Bill: The Whole Bloody Affair. Not only did he say say that it might bee soon, he explained that there's more anime in the complete cut of his genre homage blockbuster, originally released in two installations.
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.
