Quentin Tarantino Once Planned A Reservoir Dogs/Pulp Fiction Crossover Movie

Quentin Tarantino once considered making a crossover movie with characters from both Reservoir Dogs and Pulp Fiction.

Actor Michael Madsen, who played Mr. Blonde (aka Vic Vega) in Reservoir Dogs, opened up about his relationship with John Travolta's character in Pulp Fiction, Vincent Vega.

Speaking to Hollywood Reporter, Madsen said: "The picture was going to start out with the two of us being released from prison in different states. And we open up a club in Amsterdam."

He explained that the potential movie would have most likely have been released in the 1990s if it ever happened, and would be a prequel, given that both characters die in the films they are in.

The pair would have worked with the underground crime network of the Dutch city, which would correlate with the start of Pulp Fiction, where Vincent arrives in Los Angeles after spending time in the 'Dam.

Marsden thought that he and Travolta would have been 'too old' but that Tarantino had mentioned casting younger actors to play their characters.

"He had come up with this idea that it would be the twin brothers of Vic and Vincent, who met after the deaths of their siblings. It was very complicated, but when Quentin starts discussing an idea, it's very easy to go along with it."

Madsen then worked with Quentin Tarantino on a number of other movies, including Kill Bill, The Hateful Eight and Once Upon A Time in Hollywood

You might also have noticed that Madsen did a re-imagining of the famous reservoir dogs ear-cutting moment, in a less graphic but also hilarious version.

The homemade video encourages people to carry on social distancing, and is filmed on his mobile phone.

It begins with the actor's family with bloody bandages around their ears, before the song Stuck in the Middle with You by Stealers Wheel starts - just like the film. Madsen then appears, donning a suit jacket, tie and sunglasses, just like his character Mr Blonde wore in the film.

With his PJs on, Madsen then does a bit of the famous dance that his character does, before slicing off another ear. It ends with the message: "Stay Home. Stay Safe."

Speaking about the video to The Hollywood Reporter, he said: "I was bored out of my mind, basically. It was my wife who said it would be funny to do a kooky type of Reservoir Dogs. It was very funny, I am surprised we pulled it off."

Madsen has sent the video to Tarantino, but hasn't heard back just yet.
