Former Miramax gurus, the Weinsteins are starting a new label called Dragon Dynasty [thanks to James for the heads-up] to release a bunch of Asian films in the US market – with Quentin Tarantino’s help of course. So don’t be suprised when you see a whole slew of ‘Quentin Tarantino Presents…’ titles over the next couple of years. The first batch of rumored films to be released includes:
ONG BAK 2, TOM YUN GONG, SPL, SEVEN SWORDS, BORN TO FIGHT and DRAGON SQUAD.
Tarantino told Stuff Magazine what his contribution to Hostel was:
“I came up with the bolt cutters to cut off the girl’s toes. And it was my idea that they run over the girls. The audience cheers every time that happens.”
You can just tell he’s very proud.
The release date for Grind House has been pushed back, again, to April of 2007. And just like we said the last time, it’ll probably get pushed back at least 1 more time.
And in a very weird turn of events, Fergie has been cast in Grind House? Yes, Fergie from the Black Eyed Peas.
Notice the similarities in the logos?
It was pointed out in the comments to this article about the Death Proof script cover that the logo on Stuntman Mike’s car is very similar/identical to the logo for the band Death By Stereo.
Now, we can’t read too much into this as it is just a script cover, and not something that typically gets spread around for public consumption. So maybe somebody just slapped the logo on there because they thought it looked cool. But maybe there’s a possible soundtrack connection. Maybe.
By the way, the actual image I used for the Death By Stereo logo is from this belt buckle. Or, maybe we should start calling it a Stuntman Mike Belt Buckle.
The Reservoir Dogs game now has an official site. For now, there’s only a UK version and it includes just a short description and 3 screenshots. But I’m sure there will be more to come as the August 2006 release date approaches.
This site made my whole day: Tarantinotes.
They are a cover band that plays nothing but songs from Tarantino’s films. And they do it while in costume as characters from Tarantino’s films.
The site has three audio clips and loads of pictures of the band on stage. If I wasn’t already married, these guys would definately be at the top of my list for the reception.
Gamespot has even more on the Reservoir Dogs video game including a Hands-On Impression from E3 and a trailer for the game
What if Quentin Tarantino authored the bible? With Uma Thurman starring as Mary Magdalene.
This is pretty good stuff – a welcome diversion.
Its been over a year since I grumbled about the idea of a 2006 release date for the Reservoir Dogs video game, but it now appears likely to be released in the Fall of this year according to Eidos.
According to Eidos, the videogame will provide players with the opportunity to “fill in the blanks” left open by the original motion picture. Eidos states that the game, a third-person shooter which will stay true to the film’s original plot and chronology, will follow the progress and planning of the ill-fated heist and will answer questions such as “What happened to Mr. Blue and Mr. Brown?”, “Where did Mr. Pink hide the diamonds?”, and “What actually happened at the heist?”
IGN has a couple of images from the game up as well. (thanks to Paul for the heads up on this story)
