Kill Bill game in limbo
Remake rights-holder VU Games says its plans to develop a game based on the Tarantino movie are on hold.
When VU Games bought the game rights to Quentin Tarantino's Kill Bill earlier this year, fans were split. Some relished the idea of being able to hack and slash with their very own Hattori Hanzo katana, others felt the game would be another lame movie-title cash-in a la Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon.
However, it turns all the controversy was for naught, since VU Games has shelved development of the title. "While Vivendi Universal Games holds the interactive rights," said a VU spokesperson, "currently there is no game in development." The spokesperson also did not elaborate on whether the title would ever be brought to consoles or PCs.
With Kill Bill in development limbo, Reservoir Dogs is the only Tarantino property being adapted into a game, although SCi (The Great Escape, Conflict: Desert Storm), its publisher and developer, has been mum about the project since first announcing it back in March.
