Quentin Tarantino's Friars Roast Postponed Due to Sally Menke's Death


Quentin Tarantino
Because of the sudden death of his longtime friend and film editor Sally Menke, 'the Friars roast of Quentin Tarantino, scheduled for Friday (Oct 1st) in New York, has been postponed.'


Quentin Tarantino has postponed his upcoming induction into New York's legendary Friars Club following the death of his longtime friend and film editor Sally Menke. The "Pulp Fiction" director was set to become the organization's latest figure of fun at the annual 'roast' on Friday, October 1, with Uma Thurman, Eli Roth and Patricia Arquette all expected to rip into Tarantino with traditional mocking tributes.

But the event at the New York Hilton has been delayed following Menke's untimely demise. A statement released on Tuesday afternoon reads, "The Friars roast of Quentin Tarantino, scheduled for Friday (Oct 1st) in New York, has been postponed due to the death today of Sally Menke - longtime editor, collaborator and dear friend of Mr. Tarantino."

The film editor was hiking with her dog in Beachwood Canyon in the sweltering Los Angeles heat on Monday, September 27 and alarms were raised when she failed to return home. Authorities discovered Menke's body in the early hours of Tuesday, September 28.

Menke, 56, worked on all of Tarantino's movies, and picked up Oscar nominations for her work on "Pulp Fiction" and last year's "Inglourious Basterds". A cause of death has yet to be determined. A new date for Tarantino's Friars Club roast is expected to be announced in the coming weeks.
