Finally some details from that Quentin Tarantino directed CSI series 5 finale, from CSIFiles.com :
“Main character Nick Stokes is kidnapped by someone with a grudge against CSI. (When) he wakes up, he’s trapped in a coffin with a loaded handgun and a tape recorder with a message telling him it’s best to kill himself, as he’s going to die anyway. There’s also a webcam in the coffin, which transmits an image back to the CSI lab, allowing his colleagues to see him slowly suffocate – but not providing any clues as to his whereabouts. ‘Grave Danger’ was written by CSI showrunner Carol Mendelsohn, CSI creator Anthony Zuiker, and executive producer Naren Shankar, based on a story by Quentin Tarantino. The episode will air Wednesday the 19th of May.”
I’m not sure what Hong Kong movie this plot is ripped off from, but Quentin is involved so I’m confident it’s one of them. Also not sure how he’s gonna fit a kung fu master and ninja sword fight into that coffin. I can only assume he’ll do it through flash backs. That’s probably when he’ll abuse his power, cast himself and make out with a super hot Asian chick who’s way out of his league too. No word yet on if she gets hazard pay for that.
