Quentin Tarantino Says 'Kill Bill: The Whole Bloody Affair' Will Hit Theaters In 2015

Could it really be true? Of the many projects Quentin Tarantino keeps up in the air, the one that excites and frustrates fans in equal measure is "Kill Bill: The Whole Bloody Affair." As the title suggests, it's a longer cut of the director's two-part martial arts/vengeance epic, the most notable inclusion being a 30 minute anime sequence. Way, way back in 2011, 'The Whole Bloody Affair' screened at the New Beverly... and that was the last anyone heard about it.

Kill Bill Vol. 2

Could it really be true? Of the many projects Quentin Tarantino keeps up in the air, the one that excites and frustrates fans in equal measure is "Kill Bill: The Whole Bloody Affair." As the title suggests, it's a longer cut of the director's two-part martial arts/vengeance epic, the most notable inclusion being a 30 minute anime sequence. Way, way back in 2011, 'The Whole Bloody Affair' screened at the New Beverly... and that was the last anyone heard about it.

Until this weekend at Comic-Con, that is. Tarantino was on hand at the Dynamite Entertainment panel to talk up his forthcoming "Django Unchained"/"Zorro" crossover comic, and when asked about 'The Whole Bloody Affair,' he gave a typically verbose answer. Here's Tarantino's response, the whole bloody answer, via Slashfilm:

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, time to celebrate? Maybe plan to take some time off work in 2015? We'll see. 'The Whole Bloody Affair' might be just the thing to hold over fans while awaiting "The Hateful Eight" which will apparently start shooting early next year.
