QT’s Kung Fu Movie Revealed?

Could it be that Tarantino’s kung fu film will be a remake of The 36th Chamber of Shaolin? Thats what it seems to appear that QT’s intentions were back in October of 2003.

According to Hong Kong paper Oriental Daily, Quentin Tarantino is thinking about doing a remake of The 36th Chamber of Shaolin, one of his favorite Shaw Brothers’ classics. … According to the paper, Shaw Brothers has asked Quentin to do the remake and he has agreed. But it would not be possible until 2006 according to his schedule.

Maybe, but this is pretty old (Oct 03 with mention of Tarantino’s thoughts from a year prior). So far though, its the best info I’ve seen on what might be planned. (pulled from the Forum)


Inglorious Bastards DELAYED!?

This’ll come as a shock to everybody, but Tarantino has told Total Film Mazine that Inglorious Bastards is not next on his list of projects, and that he intends to make a kung-fu film shot in Mandarin. Here are the QT quotes:

“My next movie is gonna be another kung fu that’s gonna blow your asses off. Everyone still thinks I’m doing Inglorious Bastards next but before I do I want to do something much smaller,” Tarantino said.

“The next movie will be in Mandarin. I enjoyed shooting all the Japanese stuff in Kill Bill so much that this whole film will be entirely in Mandarin.

“If you’re not up to watching it with subtitles, I really want to do a full-on dubbed version. Maybe shooting two Kill Bill movies has spoiled me but fuck it – sue me.”

Maybe this is bullshit, though it wouldn’t really suprise me if it was true. The Total Film forum doesn’t have anything posted about this story just yet. The story has been picked up by loads of news sites though.

UPDATE: Here’s some more, including a few quotes from the guy that did the interview w/ Quentin.
