LONDON (AP) _ Director Quentin Tarantino says he's planning a kung-fu film with all the dialogue in Mandarin Chinese and out-of-sync English dubbing in homage to many such films in the past.

In an interview with Total Film magazine, Tarantino said he decided to do the kung-fu movie instead of ``Inglorious Bastards,'' the working title of his long-expected movie based on World War II.

``I enjoyed shooting all the Japanese stuff in `Kill Bill' so much that this whole film will be entirely in Mandarin,'' he was quoted as saying.

``If you're not up to watching it with subtitles, I really want to do a full-on dubbed version,'' he added.
