KILL BILL gets chopped into two
Tarantino's new movie is now TWO new movies
By Patrick Sauriol

It was first rumored to be happening last week in the pages of Entertainment Weekly
and now Variety
has confirmed it: Quentin Tarantino's KILL BILL
will be broken up into two separate movies. The first part of KILL BILL
will open in theaters on October 10, with the second to come out at some unspecified date.
Now the big question that everyone will be wondering is: will audiences pay to see a two-part movie? And how long will Miramax, the studio releasing KILL BILL
, wait until releasing the conclusion? Variety
also raises another interesting conundrum: will the contracts for Uma Thurman and the other principal actors in the film now have to renegotiate their contracts to factor a two-film deal?
If the gamble works for Tarantino and Miramax they could effectively double their money. At least the fans will get a three-hour jolt of new Tarantino crime noir action instead of just one trimmed flick.Got a scoop? Know something that you need to tell us about? Send it to us!
