In line with Robert Rodriguez, Tarantino didn’t obtain raves from the filmmakers who checked out “Pulp Fiction” previous to its Palme d’Or triumph at Cannes. To hammer dwelling the tepidness of the recepection, Rodriguez cited George Lucas’ notorious first screening of “Star Wars,” the place everybody outdoors of Steven Spielberg thought the soon-to-be billionaire’s follow-up to “American Graffiti” was going to bomb.

Rodriguez could not attend this screening, however he requested Tarantino if there was a Spielberg on this screening. There was. “Kathryn Bigelow,” mentioned Tarantino. “Completely, positively. She was its greatest fan.”

Bigelow was gearing as much as shoot “Unusual Days” at this level, and knew John Travolta was about to hit a large profession resurgence. In line with Tarantino, she wished the actor for the a part of Lenny Nero (which might finally be performed by Ralph Fiennes). She talked the movie as much as her producing companion James Cameron, however Travolta was instantly snatched up by Barry Sonnenfeld for “Get Shorty.”

As for the opposite attendees of that pre-Cannes screening, Tarantino is not naming names. However he does keep in mind their dire prognostications. “There was [one guest] that was planning on, ‘Okay, I will should have a tough discuss with Quentin, however I will wait ‘until he comes again from Cannes.’ Actually, they left a message like, ‘Nicely, I used to be truly going to really get somewhat powerful with you, however I suppose we are able to neglect that. What the hell do I do know?'”

Nothing price realizing, evidently.
