Miramax delays Tarantino's ''Kill Bill -- Vol. II.'' The Uma Thurman revenge saga moves from February to April, just after the DVD release of ''Vol. I''
”Kill Bill” fans who’ve been waiting anxiously to learn the ultimate fate of Uma Thurman’s sword-wielding Bride character will have to wait two months longer. According to Variety, Miramax has delayed the release of Quentin Tarantino’s ”Kill Bill — Vol. II” from Feb. 20 to April 16. (Parent company Disney has already taken advantage of the move by slotting the romantic comedy ”Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen,” starring ”Freaky Friday”’s Lindsay Lohan, in the February date.) Miramax gave no reason for the move, but it would allow the studio to whet interest for the theatrical release with the expected April 13 bow of last fall’s ”Vol. I” on DVD. April 16 also sees the multiplex debuts of Greek bride Nia Vardalos’ new comedy, ”Connie and Carla,” and the Marvel Comics vigilante saga ”The Punisher.” The Bride vs. The Punisher: Now there’s a showdown.
