"Kill Bill: The Whole Bloody Affair"

Joe Utichi reports via FilmFocus.co.uk that Quentin Tarantino plans a wide U.S. theatrical release for Kill Bill: The Whole Bloody Affair in the next few months. This is both halves of the Kill Bill saga, Vol. 1 (2003) and Vol. 2 (2004), stitched together into a single, glorious bloodbath, as Tarantino intended originally.

Says Tarantino in the Utichi interview:
"Kill Bill: The Whole Bloody Affair is definitely getting a wide release; actually, that'll probably be the first movie that Miramax, under their new company, will be releasing theatrically, it's the Japanese version, that's why I call it that, you know, it should probably come out in the next few months. It's going to be NC-17 in America. We couldn't do that when Disney owned the place but now Disney's the fuck outta there we can do anything we want! It's gonna be off the hook!"
I heard a few months ago that the "complete" Kill Bill, with extras, might be released on DVD as early as this coming August. A new theatrical release and a new DVD amount to very exciting news for those of us who rank Kill Bill among the greatest action films of all time.
