Tarantino sued for Kill Bill

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - News -

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.
