Sometimes, one brilliant turn inspires another. This is the birth case of “Kill Bill”. The epic of revenge that became so unwieldy that it had to be split into two volumes to protect Miramax’s investment was born on a mythical night in the production of “Pulp Fiction”. As Thurman said Time in 2003:
“We’ve been with people from the Pulp Fiction cast and crew, just talking about making revenge movies,” she said, ‘beating the ideas around.’ Within minutes, she and Tarantino come up with a plot idea: a pregnant female assassin tries to walk straight, brutally attacked at her wedding, loses her baby, goes into a coma, recovers, and continues. Tarantino’s vendetta was so excited by that premise, he went home and wrote the nine-page script in a frenzied sense of color. “
Then Tarantino’s “Kill Bill” muse vanished. He lost contact with Thurman for a few years. When they finally reconnected, Thurman asked Tarantino if he still had the pages he filled out with inspiration. He did, but without the script.
On Thurman’s birthday that year, he promised that she would have a finished script “within weeks.” A year and a half later, she finally received the manuscript of “Kill Bill”.
