"Pulp Fiction" (1994)ist DER Kultfilm von Quentin Tarantino (u.a. "Kill Bill")...
Ihre Sprüche kennen die Menschen auf der ganzen Welt. Ihre Klamotten tragen Fans mit Absicht und normale Leute aus Versehen. Ihre Musik ist unvergleichlich. Sie sind dilettantisch und brutal. Zwei Profikiller, ein Boxer mit einer französischen Freundin, ein Gangsterboss und seine drogenabhängige Frau und ein Liebespärchen, das sich nicht entscheiden kann: Schnapsladen oder Restaurant?
Vincent Vega (John Travolta) und Jules Winnfield (Samuel L. Jackson) holen für ihren Boss Marsellus Wallace (Ving Rhames) eine schwarze Aktentasche aus einer Wohnung ab.
Drei Jungs, die ihnen dabei im Weg stehen, lassen ihr Leben.
Die Killer machen sich mit einem vierten Jungen als Geisel auf den Weg ins Hauptquartier.
Doch als das Auto über eine Strassenerhöhung schaukelt, erschiesst Vincent aus Versehen die Geisel.
Um den blutverspritzten Wagen zu reinigen, machen die beiden einen Abstecher zu Jules' Freund Jimmie (Quentin Tarantino), wo auf Befehl vom Boss ein Spezialist für schwierige Aufträge zu ihnen stösst: "The Wolf" (Harvey Keitel)...
"Pulp Fiction" startete am 3. November 1994 in den deutschen Kinos...
Pulp Fiction Spin-Off: "The Vega Brothers" !?!
Tarantino spielt tatsächlich mit dem Gedanken "The Vega Brothers" zu drehen - die Geschichte von Vincent und Vic Vega... Ein Art Pre- und Sequel zu "Pulp Fiction"... John Travolta (Vincent Vega) und Michael Madsen (Vic Vega in Tarantinos "Reservoir Dogs") sind laut Tarantino zwar zu alt, aber durch die "Magie des Kinos" liesse sich das alles lösen... Laut Michael Madsen evtl. durch Zwillinge... ;-)

CHUD sprach mit Michael Madsen, u.a. über "Vega Brothers"...
Madsen: [...] I’d like to do The Vega Brothers. I hope that one comes together some day.
Q: Hasn’t Quentin said that wouldn’t happen?
Madsen: Well, first he said he would do it, then he said he wasn’t going to do it. Then he called me and said, ‘You know, I’ve figured out a way to do it. It can’t be a prequel because you and John don’t look the same. It wouldn’t make sense as a sequel because you’re both dead.’ And he gave me an idea that would be really outrageous - that John and I would be the twin brothers of Vic and Vincent. We come from Amsterdam to LA to avenge the deaths of our brothers. I think that’s pretty interesting. For me, I’d love to do it.
Will it happen? Tarantino talks a lot - the guy can’t keep his ideas to himself. But not all of those ideas ever go anywhere. Although who knows - maybe QT will want to resuscitate John Travolta’s career a SECOND time. [...]
MTV.com sprach mit QT, u.a. über "Vega Brothers"...
[...] there's another long-term project, the tentatively titled "Vega Brothers" film that would team Vincent Vega (John Travolta in "Pulp Fiction") with his brother Vic Vega (Madsen in "Reservoir Dogs") in a prequel-ish story featuring the original actors. "I could do it," Tarantino said. "I've actually figured out a way, even though the characters have gotten older, to do it. I just have to have the ambition to write it."
Asked what this ingenious twist would be, Tarantino would only flash his famously mischievous grin: "If I told you that, then I would never write it at all." [...]
Moviehole sprach mit John Travolta...
Is he interested in the proposed "Grease 3"? "Oh God no", tells JT.
Travolta says it's mostly rumour anyway. "Well that and the prequel to Pulp Fiction, "The Vega Brothers." If there’s truth to the "Vega Brothers" that’s only in Quentin’s imagination. That’s never been presented to me but a "Grease 3," I just don’t want to do. There’s nothing about it that is - I didn’t do two why would I do a three?". [...]
Seems Quentin Tarantino is still keen to do a "Vega Brothers" movie - a film that would team "Reservoir Dogs" Vic Vega with "Pulp Fiction" pro-Mullet Vincent Vega - but whether it's due to budget or lack of interest on the former Sweathog's behalf, word is it might be without John Travolta.
Michael Madsen is keen to go - and not surprisingly, his only good pay day is when he gets a gig in one of QT's lil' numbers - but Travolta is apparently not so committed. The latest is that Tarantino might re-cast the part. C'Mon! Seriously?!
Sounds like someone better wave a big chunk of green in front of Danny Zuko before we end up with Matt LeBlanc in the role. Why Tarantino would even consider doing it without Travolta is beyond me. Hopefully this is a chinese whisper that's got twisted somewhere along the Hollywood/Highland route.
CS! weiss mehr über die "Vega Brothers"...
In an interview with a local radio station here in San Antonio (Mix 96.1, The Woody Show) yesterday, Quentin stated that yes he had an idea for the Vega Brothers but it's not really moving and wouldn't be his next film. He said that even though he had an idea he didn't have a story, that it's not worth doing without a good story, and that there won't be a story until he gets really inspired to write one. [...]
DH zitiert aus einem "Rolling Stone"-Artikel: Tarantino will die "Vega Brothers" !!!
MI6 sprach mit Michael Madsen, der u.a. über "Vega Brothers" plauderte....
Has there been Any news on the Vega Brothers Films?
Once upon a time there was going to be a "Vega Brothers" movie and then as time went by Quentin decided that it was impossible. John and I are like 10 years older and so we couldn't really make a prequel.
How could we make a story about two guys who before they are both killed were 10 years older.
So he told a big crowd of people in San Diego that there wasn't going to be a "Vega Brothers" movie, but then he went off to Mexico for a couple of days and he called me right when he came back from there to tell me that he had came up with an idea and a concept that would make the characters work and I can't tell you what it is but I can tell you that it is definitely back on his mind and I do think there is going to be a "Vega Brothers" movie.

A little disappointed he couldn’t find him a role in "Kill Bill" nor get the planned "Vega Brothers" off the ground, Quentin Tarantino has decided John Travolta will definitely be in his next picture. The renowned writer-director is in talks with Miramax to do an airplane thriller, with Travolta fittingly cast as the film’s pilot. Not unexpectedly, considering Tarantino’s love for the old classics, his film will have an Airport/Towering Inferno-like disaster story intertwined in it - in this case, the ultimate airline disaster. The flick, which Tarantino also hopes to have "Jackie Brown" lead Pam Grier co-starring in, is planned to happen as soon as he finishes work on his World War II pic "Inglorious Bastards", which he apparently couldn’t find a role for JT in either. It’s in draft stage. And what’s the status of "Vega Brothers"? According to our scooper, it’s dead as a doornail - never to happen.
Bei Tiscali gibt es ein Interview mit Samuel L. Jackson...
TISCALI: [...] Was that the first interaction you had with Tarentino?
SLJ: Nah, actually I met Quentin originally when I auditioned for Reservoir Dogs...
TISCALI: And on the strength of that did he call you up and say...
SLJ: Um...let me think what happened ... I auditioned for Reservoir dogs, and then I didn't hear from him again, until I went to Sundance that year, I had a film at the festival, and they were doing the first screening of reservoir dogs, and I went to it, saw it, and I saw him afterwards and I went to him and he remembered my audition and said to me "How d'you like the guy who got your part?" and I said, it would have have been a better movie if you'd put me in it! And all of a sudden I get a phone call saying he'd like to have dinner with me one night, cos he had this thing he was writing, and when we had dinner we talked about how he wanted to write this part for me in his movie, and I was like, "good! yeah!" and he said it'll come soon in the mail, okay fine, I went off and then I got one letter from him in Virginia, and sure enough I got this script in a brown paper wrapper, that had the Jersey film logo on it, two old guys, funny little logo, two big guys painted on it - and he said if I show this script to anybody two guys'll come along and break your legs. And... it was pulp fiction.
TISCALI: So that part was written especially for you?
SLJ: That's what he told me then! [...]
Quentin Tarantino gave an interview to New Zealand's Aotearoa News to promote "Kill Bill" and was asked about the status of the Vega Bros. movie which appeared dead after comments by Michael Madsen in July but may not be after all - "That's something I always planned on doing, but other projects took precedence. Ten years on , John Travolta's getting older, Michael's getting older. I don't think they'd even want to do it. Not that that's the last hope audiences have of seeing more of Vic or Vincent Vega. There's an idea I have a Pulp Fiction follow-up. Sequels generally suck, so it's nothing I want to rush into. But Bottom line the studio wants it, the fans want it. I'm sure I can compromise somewhere. It'd be my way of apologizing for never getting Vega Brothers off the ground I guess. That way, we could get John, we could get Michael, and we could get Sam and Tim...everyone back. It would be interesting to see whatever happened to Jules and his plans to 'walk the earth'. Hey, just having Michael and John in the same frame would be great. They're great. But that said, I got to write such a thing". QT is confirmed next to do the WW2 flick "Inglorious Bastards" and a potential "Kill Bill" prequel.
[22.07.2003] DH berichtet über die San Diego Comic-Con...
Both Quentin Tarantino and Michael Madsen were on hand to promote "Kill Bill" this weekend and inevitable question of whether the teamup of Madsen and John Travolta's characters from QT's previous films is still going ahead. Tarantino responded: "I might write the Vega Brothers, I don't think that I can really do it as a movie anymore. I think Michael Madseon & John Travolta just got a little too old to do a prequel to a movie they did ten years ago". [...]
[20.07.2003] Quint von AICN berichtet u.a. über das "Kill Bill"-Panel auf der San Diego Comic-Con...
[...] Someone brought up THE VEGA BROS and Madsen was actually pretty confident it was going to happen. "All I can say is Quentin wants to make THE VEGA BROS. He already has it in his head. But it has to be soon. Maybe next year?" Any other info? "It will be set in Amsterdam." Interesting!
[22.05.2003] DH meldet...
Long ago it was thought the two brother characters who appeared in separate Tarantino flicks would come together in one movie - now could it be finally going ahead? 'Tim' has the details: "I auditioned for a role and got chatting with the lovely casting director who indicated the "vega brothers" movie is going ahead. She says it will be huge because its a huge ensemble, and says it's going to have Travolta in it, Madsen, Samuel L. Jackson and all the Tarantino regulars - but a lot of roles available for young women, because it's set in bars and nightclubs, hence, strippers, barmaids, waitress roles will be available. Tarantino wants to do it later this year. I would so love to be a part of this but she said nearly every male role is a 'name'".
[18.12.2002] Dark Horizons meldet...
The Sun reports that the Tarantino/Travolta/Madsen flick "will follow the pairs exploits around a club they own, set in the late 80s - whilst there is also an argument between the brothers over a woman". Shooting could begin as early as mid-2003
[27.08.2002] CineCon sprach mit Michael Madsen...
[...] "Quentin and I have talked about doing a film about the Vega brothers. He has the idea in his head, where Travolta and I would play club owners in Amsterdam. I do see the film being made. He just has to finish work on Kill Bill and the World War II movie he's working on, so it won't be for another 2 or 3 years, but I do see it happening then." [...]
[05.03.2002] Moviehole sprach mit Michael Madsen, der sich ein "Pulp Fiction"-Prequel wünscht...
And despite its setback, Madsen is still hoping he gets to work with Tarantino on that Pulp Fiction prequel. "If there is a god...it will still be made". But As happy as he’d be to reprise his role as the bank robbing Vega brother, he’s keeping away from the Species series. "Species 3? If there is a god, I hope it’s not happening", he laughs.
[26.04.2001] Roger Friedman sprach für FOXNews.com mit Tarantino...
[...] Tarantino also told me not to believe rumors of a Pulp Fiction prequel about Vinnie Vega and his brother Vic. "It's not a prequel to Pulp Fiction, but about the Vega brothers and what they did before the story in Pulp Fiction. I've always had the idea to do it, but it's not something I'm working on right now. It's way off in the distance, if it ever happens. First I have to finish Kill Bill, then I have a war movie I'm trying to finish." [...]
