Japanese filmmaker Sion Sono is upset that people keep asking about the Tarantino influence in his new film because of the yellow track suit (Kill Bill style). He’s ticked because it was a Bruce Lee thing, not a Tarantino thing.
Fair enough, but when your trailer looks like a weird cross between Reservoir Dogs, True Romance and Kill Bill – its not exactly the Bruce Lee influence that stands out.
His film is called Why Don’t You Play In Hell?
To keep the site moving during the down periods in Tarantino’s productivity, I thought I’d start sharing other films and books that keep me entertained. This is the first of those posts:
Bloody and brutal with kids as the main characters in a post apocalyptic world, School’s Out Forever makes the dystopia of the Hunger Games seem like a walk in the park.
K-Pop band “Brown Eyed Girls” have a new song out called “Kill Bill” with a video thats one huge nod to the film. via PopDust.
Sad news today that Elmore Leonard has died.
Elmore’s connection to the Tarantino universe was the novel Rum Punch, which was then made into the film Jackie Brown.
Back in February of 2012, there were rumors that a prequel to Jackie Brown – sans QT involvement – was going to be made based on the Leonard novel The Switch (it apparently never happened). CORRECTION – the prequel is happening and its called Life of Crime.
Leonard is currently most famous because of the Justified TV series – which was based on his novels as well.
Its not next in the sense of it being another Tarantino movie. Rather, its an Enzo Castellari westerm that Tarantino will have an acting role in.
With Tarantino, the movie rumors never seem to die. It’ll be interesting to see how many more times the possibility of a Kill Bill 3 movie get resurrected.
