Here’s an interesting rumor that appeared on the web a little too close to April Fool’s Day for me to believe it 100%.

The word out is that Tarantino will probably be shooting his segment very soon, and we can get back to finish PT as soon as DP is done, and Rodriguez can get his **** together. that is all I have for the time being.” Which at least means that it’s not halted forever. This would be the first time ever Rodrigue would be OVER budget, usually he is under.
