Just one day after losing the chance to win an Oscar as The Best Director for his movie ‘Inglorious Basterds’ over Kathryn Bigelow, Quentin Tarantino is involved in a lawsuit. A man claims the director ripped-off his concept to create ‘Kill Bill’.
Dannez Hunter filed a lawsuit saying that in 1999 he submitted a treatment to Miramax, about a fictional character named Ren.
Eventually Miramax, Harvey Weinstein and Quentin Tarantino ripped-off his work, including the “concept/character name Ren” and the idea of his character witnessing her mother’s sadistic murder, the knife through the mother’s abdomen, such as many others.
He also says that he applied for a job at Miramax but “was never given a return phone call, as numerous similar situated less qualified Jewish and White people were bestowed job after job after job”.
