Michael Madsen Talks Pulp Fiction Prequel We Never Saw

Michael Madsen talks about the Pulp Fiction prequel we never saw

This story is actually quite depressing. In a recent interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Michael Madsen discussed the prequel to Pulp Fiction we never got. One that would have united the actor, who played Vic Vega, aka Mr. Blonde, in Quentin Tarantino’s crime drama Reservoir Dogs, with his cinematic brother, Vincent Vega, played by John Travolta in Pulp Fiction.

“We were supposed to be in Amsterdam, criminally,” says Madsen of Tarantino’s thoughts. “The picture was going to start out with the two of us being released from prison in different states. And we open up a club in Amsterdam.” In Pulp Fiction, Vincent Vega says he just returned to Los Angeles from Amsterdam.

Despite lots of talk from Tarantino, the film ultimately never came to fruition. As time passed, the project got weirder and weirder.

“He had come up with this idea that it would be the twin brothers of Vic and Vincent, who met after the deaths of their siblings,” Madsen says, chuckling. “It was very complicated, but when Quentin starts discussing an idea, it’s very easy to go along with it.” 

While the Madsen/Travolta pairing never happened in Tarantino’s universe, the duo appeared together in the race car film Trading Paint, where they played up their onscreen relationship.

“We had a scene where we are at a big retirement party, and I walked up to John and he goes, ‘I thought you were dead.’ And I looked over at him and I said, ‘Well, I thought you were dead,'”Madsen said.

The actor recently popped up in the headlines over the weekend when he recreated the famous ear-cutting scene from Reservoir Dogs as a means to encourage people to stay indoors during the coronavirus pandemic.

“I was bored out of my mind, basically,” said“It was my wife who said it would be funny to do a kooky type of Reservoir Dogs. It was very funny, I am surprised we pulled it off.”

For those unaware, 1992’s Reservoir Dogs and 1994’s Pulp Fiction are the classic crime dramas that made Quentin Tarantino a household name. Pulp Fiction won the Oscar for Best Screenplay and was nominated for Best Director, Best Picture, Best Supporting Actress, Best Actor, Best Film Editing and Best Supporting Actor.
