Excerpt. Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.:

Early Draft Differences Tarantino is said to have started writing Kill Bill while he was still working on Pulp Fiction, inspired by Uma Thurman and conversations with her about the Fox Force Five element of that movie, but dropped it for several years when distracted by other projects. He picked up the idea again years later after running into Thurman at a celebrity event. He appears to have finished it somewhere roughly in the 1999’2000 time frame. Legend has it that Tarantino gave her the script on her 30th birthday, August 29, 2000. In interviews, various actors noted that Tarantino kept writing and tinkering with the script all through the long production schedule. A draft of the script was posted online as early as August 2002. The second half of the posted screenplay is essentially the same as what viewers see on the screen, with certain large differences. Most of the variations between script and screen occur in the first half. The opening is arranged differently. There are two truckers paying Buck to fuck The Bride rather than one. And there is a whole chapter called Yuki's Revenge that was cut from the filming schedule in order to accommodate a new chapter, Massacre At Two Pines, that details the attack on The Bride. Yuki is the sister of Gogo, and she lies in wait for The Bride outside Vernita Green's house, whereupon they have a roving battle across the suburban neighborhood. The Bride kills Yuki, but is herself severely wounded, and the sequence ends with The Bride under the care of a rogue nurse (another Bonnie situation’), who has to navigate a phalanx of cops in order to retrieve the dying Bride from a tree house. The scene was cut and some of Yuki's dialogue is subsequently given to Gogo (You call that begging’). Though mostly the same, there are significant changes between the posted script's second half and Kill Bill Vol. 2. Two scenes are gone, and a third has been added ‘ after that, however, the film is remarkably close to the online screenplay. Not making the transition is a sequence, a previous version of Chapter Six, titled But Can She Bake A Cherry Pie’, in which Bill was first introduced to us. The title of this chapter seems to be derived from the folk song, Billy Boy. In this sequence Bill visits a gambling club run by one L. F. O'Boyle (listed on IMDb for a while as being played by LaTanya Richardson, the wife of Samuel L. Jackson) and assassinates her....
