Executive producer Bennett Walsh has revealed it is possible Quentin Tarantino will return to China to shoot "Kill Bill" parts 3 and 4. At the Shanghai International Film Festival, Walsh unveiled the plot lines for the third and fourth films in the popular martial arts series, Crienglish.com reported.
The third film tells the story of the revenge of two killers whose arms and eyes Uma Thurman hacked off in the first stories, and the fourth is said to concern a cycle of reprisals and daughters who avenge their mothers' deaths, Hangzhou-based newspaper City Express quoted Bennett as saying.
Walsh also said he would most like to work with Jiang Wen, who directed "Xun Qiang" ( "Missing Gun." ) "I also want to collaborate with younger directors. I believe there are many outstanding young directors in China who have not been brought into the light," Walsh said.
I wonder when he'd make these? Would it be before or after the Vega Brothers movie, his kung-fu epic shot in Mandarin, his ultimate disaster movie starring Pam Grier, his anime prequel to KILL BILL, the long-awaited INGLORIOUS BASTARDS, and his remake of COME DRINK WITH ME?
Honestly, I wouldn't hold your breath. Even when the news comes straight from Tarantino it's highly suspect, and this is second-hand. Until he starts shooting, you can't be sure what QT is going to make next.
To those who say people wouldn't look; they wouldn't be interested; they're too complacent, indifferent and insulated, I can only reply: There is, in one reporter's opinion, considerable evidence against that contention. But even if they are right, what have they got to lose? Because if they are right, and this instrument is good for nothing but to entertain, amuse and insulate, then the tube is flickering now and we will soon see that the whole struggle is lost. This instrument can teach, it can illuminate; yes, and it can even inspire. But it can do so only to the extent that humans are determined to use it to those ends. Otherwise it is merely wires, and lights, in a box.-Edward R. Murrow
Like everything that Tarantino is supposedly going to do, I'll believe it when I see it. Where's the Vega Brothers movie? Where's Inglorioius Bastards? Quentin talks about a lot more stuff than he'll ever have time to do.
EDIT: And oldschoolhero and I POUNCE!!! But he is the FASTER PANTHER

I do hope to return to the days when I can blow several hours on this. Maybe in 2011? (Although I WILL say that if you stick with it, you will very quickly recognise which distributors you'd want to pay attention to and which ones you can easily skip.)
