I believe it has been a long time since he showed his face here... not since film called Reservoir Dogs. Though he didn't direct the project titled Hell Ride - this collaboration between him and Larry Bishop once again ventures into "homage territory".

Mr. Blonde's not very happy with his former talent agent.
On Wednesday, Michael Madsen, who had his breakout role on "Reservoir Dogs", filed a $10 million lawsuit against Innovative Artists claiming that the agency is trying to collect on commissions for work procured and negotiated after he severed ties with the firm four years ago.

Director Quentin Tarantino hates the idea of being a professional film maker, because he regards it as a hobby and not a job. The Reservoir Dogs auteur has been making films for 20 years, but refuses to join the Director's Guild and ranks himself alongside talented amateurs. He says, "I don't want to be a professional. I'm not in the Director's Guild; I don't want to be. I like holding on to my amateur status." »
