A project that QT is the executive producer on – Killshot – has been delayed from a theatre release yet again. This picture was filmed back in 2006 and has been set for release, then yanked a few times now. The latest is that it’ll come out after The Wrestler.
The Elmore Leonard Blog has more details. Just keep scrolling.
LatinoReview.com has a review of the Killshot screenplay up.
CapeIndieFilm.com has a bunch more details of the Killshot filming including some set pictures and tons of status updates.
A little more here.
For those looking for more detailed info on Killshot, the Elmore Leonard weblog has a bunch of information, including some set visits. The film isn’t scheduled to be released until November 26th.
Some background, this is another “Quentin Tarantino presents…” film with QT serving as Executive Producer. He’s held the film rights to the novel this film is based on for years – Killshot by Elmore Leonard – and supposedly wrote a script for the film (which is not being used). He then hired Christopher McQuarrie to write a script (Usual Suspects), which is also not being used. I’m not sure what this carousel of screenplays means for the ultimate quality of the film.
Also: Elmore Leonare also wrote Rum Punch, which was the basis for Jackie Brown.
Blackfilm has the first photo from the upcoming ‘Killshot’, which is another of these ‘Quentin Tarantino Presents…’ films. Not much going on in the photo, but its cool to see that the film is coming together.
