Tarantino's Got An Old School Kung Fu Movie in the Works
It's been discussed in interviews, but some official confirmation has come from Variety today in regards to the other one of Quentin Tarantino's two upcoming projects. The first is his WWII film Inglorious Bastards, the second is this old school kung fu that he's been mentioning for years.
Going off of all of the buzz with Grindhouse, both Robert Rodriguez and Quentin Tarantino have been discussing sequels and continuing the Grindhouse series. One of them that Tarantino has mentioned could be a possibility for a sequel is this kung fu film, which he would cut and dub all to make it even more authentic.
From an interview at VH1:
There's all these subgenres in exploitation movies and cinema in general that we like, and this gives us a license to explore them all … I do have an idea in my mind for an old-school kung-fu movie that would be shot in Mandarin … there would be a long version of it, with subtitles and all serious. Then I would cut another version way down, like they did in America, and dub it! Not to make it look silly, but you can't help but benefit from its humorous quality.
And Variety mentions it as well:
Rodriguez and Tarantino want to keep the "Grindhouse" series going. For his part, Tarantino wants to shoot an old-school Kung Fu movie in Mandarin with subtitles in some countries, and release a shorter, dubbed cut in others. If the movie plays to theaters packed with screaming patrons, the Weinsteins may be willing to indulge him.
Bottom line, if you want to see this awesome Tarantino kung fu film, go see Grindhouse!! I know he can pull it off just looking at Kill Bill Vol. 1, but imagine a whole Grindhouse movie like that… sounds good!
