Ananova reports that Director Quentin Tarantino is planning an animated prequel to both the "Kill Bill" movies which will show the early times of the Deadly Viper Assassination Squad. The film will be drawn in Japanese anime style that was already seen in "Kill Bill Volume 1" and the story will focus on the three men (Esteban Vihaio, Hattori Hanzo and Pei Mei) who turned Bill into a ruthless killer.
Tarantino told Zap2It that "In the writing of the film, since I'm creating my own mythology from the ground up, I had to figure out that mythology, I had to really figure out what's going on. In the course of doing that I came up with all these cool stories and all these cool tales and these interesting things that would just bog everything down if I tried to get them across. So now that the mythology is set up, I'd like to explore it in a few different ways".
QT himself is expected to write and produce the film, whilst he also speculated that he could return to Kill Bill's world in 15 years' time to follow the daughter of Vivica Fox's character seeking revenge for the slaying of her mother in front of her. In the meantime the director is next set to direct the WW2 flick "Inglorious Bastards".
