Although Uma Thurman has since accepted Quentin Tarantino's apology, it seems the story isn't yet over for the fateful crash that took place on the set of Kill Bill, Vol.2.
In an interview with THR, the stunt coordinator for the film - Keith Adams - has spoken up on the incident. Tarantino himself has maintained that he didn't consider the incident to be a stunt gone wrong, but merely a driving sequence. The actors union, SAG-AFTRA, however have said in a statement that incident sounded "like a stunt and would be a likely safety violation."
For his part, Adams told THR that on the day of the incident, no stunt was scheduled and that "(all) of the stunt department was put on hold and no one from the stunt department was called to set."
Adams also said that he wasn't told or notified that Thurman would be driving that, and had he been told, he would have "insisted not only on putting a professional driver behind the wheel but also insuring that the car itself was road-worthy and safe."
Thurman described the car used in the incident as "a deathbox" in her New York Times interview, and in an Instagram post on Monday of this week, alleged that "the circumstances of this event were negligent to the point of criminality," but added that Tarantino was "deeply regretful and remains remorseful about this sorry event."
Here's the Instagram post, which shows the video of the incident.
i post this clip to memorialize it’s full exposure in the nyt by Maureen Dowd. the circumstances of this event were negligent to the point of criminality. i do not believe though with malicious intent. Quentin Tarantino, was deeply regretful and remains remorseful about this sorry event, and gave me the footage years later so i could expose it and let it see the light of day, regardless of it most likely being an event for which justice will never be possible. he also did so with full knowledge it could cause him personal harm, and i am proud of him for doing the right thing and for his courage. THE COVER UP after the fact is UNFORGIVABLE. for this i hold Lawrence Bender, E. Bennett Walsh, and the notorious Harvey Weinstein solely responsible. they lied, destroyed evidence, and continue to lie about the permanent harm they caused and then chose to suppress. the cover up did have malicious intent, and shame on these three for all eternity. CAA never sent anyone to Mexico. i hope they look after other clients more respectfully if they in fact want to do the job for which they take money with any decency.
