Kill Bill?
Maybe some good news on Kill Bill finally.

Darkhorizons.com:
Quentin Tarantino plans to release a merged version of both parts of Kill Bill in cinemas reports Digital Spy.

"I want to cut the whole movie together like one big epic with an intermission in the middle like a 60s film," explained the iconic director. "It'll be coming out in theatres. I've been holding off because I've been working on it for so long that I just wanted a year off from Kill Bill and then I'll do the big supplementary DVD package" says QT.

He is set to start work early next year and get the final product in cinemas late next year.

I love this movie and I was pretty mad when he started "pretending" to direct movies that weren't his (ala, Hero and Hostlel), instead of working on this.  But this is very good news, took too long, but still good news.

Finally, an answer to stop all of the bulletins of the question.

I don't think he has ever pretended that he directed these movies.  In fact, I think he lends his names to these movies because it is the only way that they would ever pickup a US distributor.  We should all be happy (whatever his motive) because otherwise we would probably never have seen Hero in theaters and probably wouldn't have seen Hostel either.

He is in my opinion the best living American director, but lately rather than doing anything original he "presented" Hero and Hostel, which most people think he directed.  He did the episode of CSI and a segment of Sin City.  With Sin City they pushed the "Special Guest Director" thing so much that you'd think he directed one of the 3 whole segments.  I'm not bashing the guy, he just seems to be attaching himself to other people's work recently.

OK, first of all, if what he wants to do is to put the two movies together, then why do we have to wait a whole year for it to come out in theaters and a few months more for the DVD? Why not paste the movies the way they are?
Now what I remember was supposed to come out by the end of 2004 was 2 barebones, 2 specials (2 disc each), and one definitive collector's - Director's Cut. Now we have to wait for 2007?
Like many others, I've been holding off with this movie just because I was told that the best DVD version is just around the corner... It looks like it's a lot farther down the road!!!

I gave in and bought hem both earlier in the year, but it only cost me £8 for both (new). They are a hell of a lot better when viewed closely together than months apart, further strengthening my conviction that it was always intended to be one movie.

I think the version he showed at Cannes a while back was exactly the same as the existing versions, save for the colour House of Blue Leaves fight and all the other small bits of violence. Oh, and the bit at the end with Bill talking to Sophie about the Bride's daughter is gone, as it spoiled the surprise and was only used to keep interest in the second volume alive. Should be worth getter when it eventually sees the light of day.
