Quentin Tarantino Explains Why His Pulp Fiction Prequel Didn’t Happen

July 23, 2019 | Posted by Jeremy Thomas

For many years, there was the belief that Quentin Tarantino was going to do a Pulp Fiction prequel featuring the Vega brothers. Now Tarantino revealed why it didn’t happen. The cinephile/director told CinemaBlend that the film, titled Double V Vega didn’t get off the ground because he never found an idea beyond the basic premise.

“The only thing I did know was the premise, I don’t think I took it far enough for a story, but I had a premise,” he said. “It would’ve taken place in Amsterdam, during the time Vincent (John Travolta) was in Amsterdam. He was running some club for Marsellus (Ving RHames) in Amsterdam, he was probably there for a couple years, so at some point during his two years spent running that club, Vic (Michael Madsen) shows up to visit him, and it would’ve been their weekend. Exactly what happened to them or what trouble they got into, I never took it that far.”

Asked whether digital technology could be used to make the film possible with the stars de-aged, Tarantino said, “I don’t think so, there is a shelf life.”

While that film isn’t in the works, Tarantino did recently reveal that he is still talking with Uma Thurman about a third Kill Bill.
