Quentin Tarantino is back. The screenwriter and director of three of the greatest movies of the 1990s - 'Reservoir Dogs', 'Pulp Fiction' and 'Jackie Brown' - has written his first explosive novel.
On her wedding day, an assassin known only as The Bride, is gunned down at the altar by the groom (her boss, Bill) and the other assassins in his employ. They fill her with bullets and leave her bleeding to death on the chapel floor. The Bride is expecting Bill's Baby.
But The Bride survives. She is in a coma for five years - a bullet lodged in her brain - and when she wakes up, she is very, very angry. Thus begins The Bride's mission of revenge. She hunts down the assassin group, killing each, one by one, saving Bill for last.
'Kill Bill' is Tarantino at his bloody, kinetic, stylish and frequently hilarious best. It is a thrilling story of revenge, and a novel which announces Quentin Tarantino as one of the hottest new voices in fiction.
Quentin Tarantino is currently shooting the movie 'Kill Bill', in China, California, Japan and Mexico. He has described it as 'Pure exploitation joy. Kung-fu, sex, revenge, murder, blood-gorged frames, fast cars, fast women and a pumping, pulsing soundtrack.' In October 2003 Uma Thurman will 'Kill Bill' in cinemas all over the world. But you can read how she does it beforehand.
