Tarantino sued for Kill Bill
Did you see Kill Bill? Did you recognise the references to Lady Snowblood, They Call Her One Eye, Game of Death and Samurai Reincarnation? Of course you did. Well, you won’t be surprised to hear that Quentin Tarantino is being sued for plagiarism. It transpires, however, that the plaintiff is not one of the older film-makers who influenced QT. One Dannez Hunter claims he submitted a treatment to Miramax back in 1999 featuring a character named Ren Short – a kind of samurai – who, when a child, saw his mother brutally murdered “in a cartoon format”.
Hmm? Good luck with that, mate.
