Well here's something unexpected. Michael Madsen was recently on the WAAF Boston Hill-Man Morning Show when a caller asked him whether or not Quentin Tarantino's once talked about Reservoir Dogs / Pulp Fiction spin-off film, The Vega Brothers, would ever be happening. Madsen starts by confirming what everyone has assumed for years; both he, who played Vic Vega in Reservoir Dogs, and John Travolta, who played Vincent Vega in Pulp Fiction, had gotten a little too old to do a prequel film. But, and here's the unexpected part, that's no barrier for Tarantino.
According to Madsen, the eclectic director recently took a trip to Tijuana and at some point he came up with a new idea for The Vega Brothers. I think it's best heard in the words of Madsen, so hop below to watch footage of him spilling the beans, but in short the concept is this: the Vega brothers were actually two sets of identical twins who had no idea the other set existed. However, their paths of revenge for their respective brothers deaths cross and the two will then team up.
"I'd be Vic Vega's twin brother, he'd be Vincent's twin brother and we're both on a flight from Los Angeles, having just been released from prison, and neither one of us know that we're the twin brother of the other one and we're both on our way back to LA to avenge the death of our brothers."
Sound a little crazy? Of course it does, but then again I would expect absolutely nothing less from Quentin Tarantino. Check out the video below and then let us know if you're on board for a Vega Brothers movie no matter what hoops Tarantino jumps through to make it work.
