The director changed his mind at the last minute.

The film “Pulp Fiction 2” would have become a cult film; the film simply had no chance of having a different fate. If only because no Quentin Tarantino film has ever failed at the box office. Moreover, it had to be a combination of cool events. And that’s why.

The director has said more than once that Vic Vega from Reservoir Dogs, brilliantly played by Michael Madsen, and Vincent Vega from Pulp Fiction (the first and only one), no less brilliantly played by John Travolta, are brothers and sisters. Imagine how great, compelling and ironic the film would be with both colorful characters in the frame?

However, the film about the Vega brothers was not destined to come out for a very prosaic reason. The continuation of “Reservoir Dogs” and “Pulp Fiction” was impossible: both heroes died in their films. Another logical decision was to make a prequel. And that would be cool, wow, cool. If it were not for one “but”. The years go by, but we are not getting any younger. So Travolta and Madsen began to look older in the time between filming. That is why the perfectionist Tarantino, who valued his reputation, abandoned the idea of ​​​​making “Pulp Fiction 2”, even for the sake of ratings and huge money.

The director did not even consider involving other actors in the project, since we are talking about the youth of the Vega brothers. Therefore, viewers never saw the continuation (or rather, the events preceding the main plot) of two cult films written by the maestro.
