DISNEY DISTANCE AFTER TARANTINO RECOMMENDS BLOODY 'KILL BILL' TO BOYS AND GIRLS
Top WALT DISNEY CO. executives are growing increasingly uncomfortable with the shock nature of films coming from DISNEY's substudio MIRAMAX, the DRUDGE REPORT has learned, just as director Quentin Tarantino recommends his new blood-gushing movie to both boys and girls!
MIRAMAX honcho Harvey Weinstein retained DISNEY chair Michael Eisner's legal nemesis Bert Fields in a symbolic gesture, foreshadowing a possible split, Los Angeles sources tell DRUDGE.
The VILLAGE VOICE last week declared MIRAMAX/DISNEY's KILL BILL "The Most Violent American Movie Ever Made," and the HOLLYWOOD REPORTER warned it "oozes, drips, flows, gushes, splatters... scalps, limbs and heads are freely removed from characters' bodies."
If you are a "girl or boy you must go and see KILL BILL and you will have a damn good time," Tarantino said this weekend in London, "boys will have a great time, girls will have a dose of girl power."
When pressed about his KILL BILL recommendation for "girls and boys," Tarantino explained the film would be okay for kids starting at 12-years old.
"If you are a cool parent out there go take your kids to the movie," he told a reporter.
A top DISNEY source reveals chairman Michael Eisner has become concerned MIRAMAX is pushing the envelope too far with KILL BILL.
"Look, the movie is ultimately a WALT DISNEY concern, we've moved so far away from PINOCCHIO and BAMBI," a top DISNEY source said from Burbank. "[KILL BILL] has led to a deep reassesment of the situation and relationship [with MIRAMAX]."
