    Tarantino's New Mandarin Movie


    Cult American director Quentin Tarantino is making a new action film entirely in the Chinese Mandarin language. The film will be an homage to the 1970s low-budget 'chopsocky' kung-fu genre, which Tarantino is a long-time admirer of. He is planning two versions, one with English subtitles and another dubbed into English, deliberately badly, as a nod to the original 'chopsocky' films. He tells British movie magazine Total Film, "My next movie is gonna be another kung fu film that's gonna blow your a*ses off. The next movie will be in Mandarin. I enjoyed shooting all the Japanese stuff in Kill Bill so much that this whole film will be entirely in Mandarin. If you're not up to watching it with subtitles, I really want to do a full-on dubbed version." The film, which will begin production next year, replaces Inglorious Bastards, a Second World War epic Tarantino has in the pipeline.

    lol, tarantino is an asian wash . and no, i don't think dubbing it like that will make it a good movie, it'll turn into a comedy.

    Mandarin is practically a whole different language to the more common Cantonese, infact they sound completely different to me

    Any new Tarantino stuff is always welcome.

    Everyine will watch it because it's Tarantino

    Btw, Kill Bill was not his worst, that accolade has to go to the piss poor Jackie Brown. I thought both Kill Bills were quality but not up to his earlier standard of PF and Reservoir Dogs.
    I plan on beating him to death with his kids. I'll use them as a bludgeon on his face. -

    Also correct

    Edit: Btw, Peerzy also thinks Jackie Brown is pretty cool, it bored me to tears tho' I had to make three attempts at staying awake until the ending - which was quite good, as it happens
