Michael Madsen reveals details about Quentin Tarantino’s abandoned “Vega Brothers” film
After making news over the weekend for posting a video to social media encouraging people to self-quarantine by recreating the ear-cutting scene from Quentin Tarantino’s Reservoir Dogs (1992), Michael Madsen sat down with The Hollywood Reporterto discuss the Vega brothers. Madsen played Vic Vega (better known as “Mister Blonde”) in Reservoir Dogs, while John Travolta played Vincent Vega in Tarantino’s Pulp Fiction (1994), a role which helped revitalize the star’s career. Madsen says the prequel was supposed to begin with the brothers getting released from prison in separate states before opening up a club together in Amsterdam.
