Vivendi to Kill Bill

Tarantino's latest sees game rights snapped up a year prior to release

Vivendi has snapped up the rights to Quentin Tarantino's latest movie exactly one year prior to its theatrical release date. Due to start showing in October 2003, Kill Bill is the tale of an assassin (Uma Thurman) on a quest to kill her double-crossing boss Bill (David Carradine), whilst avoiding an untimely demise at the hands of his entourage, which includes Lucy Liu, Daryl Hannah, Vivica A. Fox and Michael Madsen. Although having survived a bullet to the head and sat in a coma for four years, Uma seems to have a knack for living through things.

Vivendi's Black Label Games will develop, produce and publish at least one game according to the terms of the publishing agreement, and that game will appear on the PC and the current run of consoles. Tarantino himself will serve as creative consultant on the project and provide exclusive film footage to help the developer along.

The good news is that Black Label aren't gunning to meet the cinematic release. Instead, they hope to finish the game to launch simultaneously with the DVD release in the second quarter 2004.
