LOS ANGELES, Nov. 2 (UPI) -- Hollywood director Quentin Tarantino, a fan of 1970s kung fu movies, reportedly plans to make an action film shot entirely in Mandarin Chinese.

Tarantino is set to make two versions of the film, one with English subtitles and the other dubbed with out-of-sync English translations common to the kung fu genre, Britain's Telegraph reported Tuesday.

"The next movie will be in Mandarin. I enjoyed shooting all the Japanese stuff in 'Kill Bill' so much that this whole film will be entirely in Mandarin," Tarantino said.

Tarantino is expected to begin shooting the film in early 2005.
