Tarantino Says 14-Year-Fan Old Wrote 'Sweet' Synopsis For 'Kill Bill 3'
There aren't many more clues to be had about Quentin Tarantino's Django Unchained in this exclusive Yahoo! Movies trailer, or in the director's latest interview with The Hollywood Reporter. But he does share a nifty story about a young fan who wrote herself into a third chapter of Kill Bill.
Tarantino took part in a THR roundtable that also featured Ben Affleck (Argo) Gus Van Sant (Promised Land), David O. Russell (Silver Linings Playbook) and Ang Lee (Life of Pi) . how the final cut of his hotly anticipated slavery-era story is different from the movie he originally envisioned, Tarantino replied, "It's shorter." But he does recount an interesting anecdote involving a fan. The director says that a "14-year-old girl wrote a little synopsis for Kill Bill Vol. 3," explaining: "She wanted to play the daughter grown up, or at least at her age."
Tarantino says he read the synopsis and called the fan to thank her. "I thought it was just so sweet that this little girl liked the movie so much that she continued the story herself," he said. "I always really hope that people take the story on themselves and take it to a different place and fill in the blanks that I didn't tell them about."
Based on this Django Unchained trailer, I say — I say — I foresee some of Tarantino's more computer-savvy fans remaking this trailer with Foghorn Leghorn playing plantation owner Calvin Candie instead of Leonardo DiCaprio. Check it out below.
