Tarantino Scared Of Kill Bill Cuts

QUENTIN TARANTINO split new movie KILL BILL in two to stop studio bosses at MIRAMAX from forcing him to cut it.

The PULP FICTION movie maker shocked Hollywood this week (begs14JUL03) by announcing the eagerly-awaited film - which stars UMA THURMAN out for revenge against a fellow assassin - will be released in two parts.

Part one will debut 10 October (03), a date for the second installment has yet to be announced, although it could come two to six months later, according Miramax co-founder HARVEY WEINSTEIN.

The move allows writer-director Tarantino to get his full story before audiences and avoid potential cuts to get it down to a more viewer-friendly length. Miramax has feuded with directors in the past on film edits, including MARTIN SCORSESE on GANGS OF NEW YORK and BILLY BOB THORNTON on ALL THE PRETTY HORSES.

Meanwhile, Miramax claim they are happy to be accommodating with Tarantino.

Miramax spokesman PAUL PFLUG says, "We believe in him. He's somebody we have a great track record with. He's one of the key factors why Miramax has become who it is."
