Tarantino has been talking up an anime prequel to Kill Bill:,12589,1186900,00.html

I also read in today's print Independent:
(but I can't see it in the online version)
that Tarantino has been suggesting that he make a gritty, low-budget Bond
film, specifically Casino Royale, likely to cost UKP40m rather than the
more normal UKP110m.
