I don’t remember him every saying he was gonna do 5 Deadly Venoms. He said he would like to and then went on a rant about it like he usually does but never flat out said he was going to do it. Not that it means much he has a habit of going on about things he’d really like to do and then never does does he gets some other idea he wants to to do.
Really Tarantino’s not working on something until you see proof of it like filming or something. Till then take any future project mentions with a grain of salt cuz he could change his mind at the drop of a hate.
He did say he had never seen ring on Fire when he wrote and directed Reservoir Dogs. You can take his word for it or not doesn’t really matter. they do share some similar scenes but i thought they where still pretty different and had different tones and focuses.
