‘Bill’ slays Italo crowd

Weinstein gushes over Tarantino

ROME — Helmer Quentin Tarantino called in sick for the Italo preem of “Kill Bill Vol. 1” Oct. 3 at Rome’s Cinema Adriano, but Uma Thurman made up for his absence, indulging in swordplay for the camera crews and chatting with Italo journos, most of whom she towered over.

Miramax topper Harvey Weinstein bubbled over with praise for his MIA helmer. “I love Quentin” Weinstein told Variety. “He is one of my proudest associations in filmmaking.”

Weinstein notes that the movie “is filled with Italian influences — the spaghetti Westerns, Sergio Leone, Franco Nero,” adding, “we thought the film might be appreciated here.”

Daryl Hannah gave a teaser into her character’s contribution in Vol. 2. “I am about the worst of the worst,” Hannah says. “I am worse than anyone in the first film. I am really a bad person.”
