Michael Madsen says too much time passed with Quentin Tarantino working on other projects, and the actors got too old to reprise their parts as the Vega brothers (who were both shot to death in their respective films), so the filmmaker floated a new idea by him recently about the twin brothers of Vic and Vincent meeting after the deaths of their siblings.

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 Reporter to 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.
