Madsen Still Wants to Do "Vega Brothers" with Tarantino

by | November 14, 2006 | Comments

Know that "Vega Brothers" project that Quentin Tarantino keeps mentioning every once in a while, only to shove it onto a back burner when something more interesting comes up? Apparently some sort of spin-off flick that’d be cousin to "Reservoir Dogs" and "Pulp Fiction," the thing might actually get made — if Michael Madsen has anything to say about it.

From Moviehole and Guardian: "It’s the film Quentin Tarantino fans have spent the best part of a decade waiting for. The latest word from Michael Madsen is that the proposed Pulp Fiction and Reservoir Dogs spin-off, featuring Madsen and John Travolta as the Vega brothers, could be heading for production after all.

The idea originally formed in Tarantino’s mind because Vincent Vega from Pulp Fiction and Vic Vega from Reservoir Dogs had always been conceived as siblings. But with both characters having been killed in their respective films, the only possibility appeared to be a prequel, which was looking less and less likely given the advancing years of Travolta, 51, and Madsen, 48. According to Madsen, however, the maverick director has come up with an ingenious plan to make the film happen after all."
