Comic-Con 2014: Tarantino Will Make The Hateful Eight & Release Kill Bill: The Whole Bloody Affair Finally?

The journey to screen for The Hateful Eight has been a wild one, of which you can read about right here, but at this past weekends San Diego Comic-Con director Quentin Tarantino made it official.  The Hateful Eight is his next film with shooting expected to start sometime in very early 2015.  This is great news!  Tarantino also talked about will the whole world finally get to see Kill Bill: The Whole Bloody Affair.  Aside from just a few screenings of it in 2011, it's never been released to the general public and here is what Tarantino had to say at Comic-Con about it: What’s going on with that is originally back when Kill Bill was going to be one movie, I wrote an even longer anime sequence. So you see in the movie [O-Ren] kill her boss but then there was that long hair guy… The big sequence was her fighting that guy. I.G. [The Japanese Anime Studio] who did Ghost in the Shell said we can’t do that and finish it in time for your thing. And [plus] you can’t have a thirty-minute piece in your movie. I said okay. It was my favorite part but it was the part you could drop. So we dropped it and then later when I.G. heard we were talking about doing Kill Bill: The Whole Bloody Affair — they still had the script so without even being commissioned, they just did it and paid for it themselves. It’s really terrific. Anyway, The Weinstein Company and myself were talking about actually coming out with it sometime, not before the year is out, but within the next year with limited theatrical engagement as well.  So ?  maybe it's finally happening? We certainly hope so!
