'Kill Bill' anime in the works, Uma Thurman says
If you totally geeked out on Quentin Tarantino’s Kill Bill double feature two years ago, you’ve got to be salivating at the thought of his two promised anime films featuring The Bride and Bill. MTV Movie Blogs got the scoop from the vengeful vixen herself, Uma Thurman, who says at least one of Tarantino’s flicks will blow us away.
“His anime stuff is strong,” she said. She said the film isn’t about The Bride, however, because she claims to have never recorded voice work for the upcoming release.
“It has nothing to do with me,” she said. “It has to do with another character. You’ll have to see.”
She also hints that the project will be available fairly soon, perhaps as part of an expanded DVD release for Kill Bill.
“Right now he’s putting the two films together with an intermission with an added anime sequence he had already written,” she said about the saga of Beatrix Kiddo. “So additional stories are in there, in animation.”
Just so long as it doesn’t make the O-Ren Ishii part of the story feel gimmicky, ’cause that part was a blast.
