Hannah, Liu fill Tarantino’s ‘Bill’

Miramax pic to feature ensemble cast

Daryl Hannah has come on board and Lucy Liu is in final talks to join what’s shaping up as a high-wattage ensemble cast for Quentin Tarantino’s long- anticipated next directorial effort for Miramax Films, “Kill Bill.”

Pic stars Uma Thurman as a woman who is shot by her husband, the title character, played by Warren Beatty. She emerges from a coma several years later to get her revenge, which puts her on a collision course with his murderous associates. His second-in-command, played by Hannah, is Thurman’s nemesis. Liu plays Oren Ishi, queen of the Tokyo Yakuza.

Tarantino, pic’s writer and director, and producer Lawrence Bender, also have cast Michael Madsen as Bill’s brother. The two were huddled in casting Thursday and couldn’t be reached by press time.

Jacqueline Bisset also is rumored to be contemplating a part in the pic.

“Kill Bill” now has a start date in June, and will shoot in California, China, Japan and Mexico.

Liu is repped by ICM and Framework Entertainment, and Hannah is repped by Binder and Associates.
