Tarantino: ‘Kill Bill: Volume 1,’ ‘Volume 2,’ ‘Jackie Brown’ to Be Re-Released by Lionsgate

The old films are set for a re-release by Lionsgate as Tarantino gets set to film his 10th and possibly last movie this fall.

The Lionsgate studio has picked up the distribution rights to three of his movies, Kill Bill: Volume I and II and Jackie Brown.

Besides the re-release of those iconic titles, Lionsgate will team with Tarantino to celebrate Kill Bill’s 20th anniversary later this year with a new and remastered 4K edition. The studio has long ties to the director behind some of the most classic movies of the past three decades, Pulp Fiction and Once Upon a Time in Hollywood among them.

“It was a real coup for us to get the three Quentin Tarantino movies. We have eight, which really gives our library a unique situation in Hollywood. And we’re going to take advantage of that,” Jim Packer, president of worldwide TV and digital distribution at Lionsgate, told analysts in his own take on the three-picture distribution deal.

Tarantino is now working on The Movie Critic, the name of the script that the filmmaker wrote and is set to direct this fall. Logline details are being kept under wraps, but the movie is believed to be set in late 1970s Los Angeles, with a female lead at its center.

Tarantino has not yet lined up a studio partner for his 10th film, which could put Lionsgate in line to take that role.
