Kill Bill: The Whole Bloody Affair With Extended Production I.G Sequence Might Hit Theaters in 2015

At the Dynamite Entertainment panel for San Diego Comic Con, director Quentin Tarantino chatted about release plans for Kill Bill: The Whole Bloody Affair, which combines both parts of Kill Bill into one film, along with some changes. Amongst those changes is an extended animation sequence from Production I.G
Here's the quote from the panel:
What's going on with that is originally back when Kill Bill was going to be one movie, I wrote an even longer anime sequence. So you see in the movie [O-Ren] kill her boss but then there was that long hair guy… The big sequence was her fighting that guy. I.G. [The Japanese Anime Studio] who did Ghost in the Shell said we can't do that and finish it in time for your thing. And [plus] you can't have a thirty-minute piece in your movie. I said okay. It was my favorite part but it was the part you could drop. So we dropped it and then later when I.G. heard we were talking about doing Kill Bill: The Whole Bloody Affair — they still had the script so without even being commissioned, they just did it and paid for it themselves. It's really terrific. Anyway, The Weinstein Company and myself were talking about actually coming out with it sometime, not before the year is out, but within the next year with limited theatrical engagement as well.
While the existence of the extended animation sequence was previously known, it's interesting to hear about Production I.G's efforts to push out the final product.
Hopefully we'll all be able to see it for ourselves next year.
