Quentin Tarantino has confirmed something his fans have speculated for decades: all his movies are in the same universe.
Vic Vega from Quentin Tarantino’s Reservoir Dogs and Vincent Vega from Pulp Fiction just so happen to be brothers. True Romance’s Lee Donowtiz, is the son of Inglorious Basterd’s Donnie Donowitz. These subtle little connections have led many fans to believe that all of the famous director’s movies are within the same universe. Now, in an interview with The Project Tarantino has confirmed it to be true.
However, it’s not quite as simple as that. He says that there are actually, technically, two universes for his movies. There is the base universe and then a “movie” universe which contains the movies that people in Tarantinoverse watch.
“So From Dusk Till Dawn, Kill Bill, they all take place in this special movie universe,” Tarantino said. “So when all the characters of Reservoir Dogs or Pulp Fiction, when they go to the movies, Kill Bill is what they go to see. From Dusk Till Dawn is what they see.”
Interesting, considering that Pulp Fiction‘s Mia Wallace is an aspiring actress… perhaps Kill Bill is the big acting break she finally got after the failed Fox Force Five.
Tarantino also confirmed that after The Hateful Eight, he will only make two more movies.
