PULP Fiction director Quentin Tarantino is suing himself for writing a screenplay clearly derivative of his earlier work.
Tarantino’s new script, Snappy-Dialogued Revenge Bloodbath, has been published online for the minuscule audience of people who’d rather read instructions of how to make a film than watch one.
The director has responded by issuing legal proceedings against himself for “shamelessly ripping off” his innovative earlier films.
He said: The scene where a gay matador beats a cowboy to death with a baseball bat in slow motion? Mine.
The subsequent scene where that same cowboy, except hes still alive because this is six weeks earlier, shoots dead everyone in a planetarium to the sound of Axel F? Mine.
The scene where the gay matador and the cowboy play Russian roulette while discussing the films of Howard Hawks? That ones from a movie by Takeshi Miike, but it was my idea to re-envision it.
This entire script is nothing but a patchwork of things from cult movies, fetishised violence and meandering conversations about pop culture. It’s like every page is branded with the initials ‘QT’.
“Though I do appreciate that the writer’s put in a small part for me, which is nice because I am quite underrated as an actor.”
