Killed Bill is a 2011 action/drama comedy film. It is an episodic "re-telling" of Quentin Tarantino's 2-part KILL BILL film. In Killed Bill, The Bride (Jackson Bailey) informs the audience of what "really" happened to her in an attempt to prove that Tarantino's critically-acclaimed KILL BILL film was, in fact, a glorified fabrication. The "Real" Bride shows us her tale of revenge through flashbacks but reveals that not only are some of the major plot points radically different, but so are some of the characters portrayed. For example, Elle Driver (Douglas Harvey) is a mannish female warrior with an affinity for clean language despite his/her brutal slaying of targets. Her training with legendary Master Pai Mei (also Douglas Harvey) is far more traumatizing; fellow assassin Vernita Green (Andrew Shaul) is more ghetto-fabulous; and the sadistic schoolgirl GoGo Yubari (Nathan Butler) is actually a giant hairy troll.
Based on a script co-written by Douglas Harvey and Jackson Bailey, Killed Bill is set to shoot in June of 2011 for a release on September 30th, 2011. It is expected that the film's extensive dialogue scenes will be largely improvised for comedic effect.
Killed Bill, despite being a feature film, will be released online in 10-15 minute Chapters. Only the film screenings and eventual DVD/Blu-Ray release will show the film in it's entirety.
The film is set to begin shooting in June of 2011 and will be released on the Harvey Studios website as well as YouTube on September 30th. The online version will be split into a dozen or so 15 minute chapters.

The casting of male actors as female characters (like Jackson Bailey as The Bride and Douglas Harvey as Elle Driver) is done for comedic effect. The characters within the film are meant to be female; the humor comes from the audience's perception of these female characters being played by men.
Filming begins in June of 2011.
DVD and Blu RayEdit
The Killed Bill DVD and Blu Ray will be released sometime in October of 2011.
