Why Don’t You Play In Hell?

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?

‘Jackie Brown’ Author Elmore Leonard Dies at 87

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.
