So what does it mean for Alexa Davalos to be joining forces with Todd Phillips and Quentin Tarantino? For someone just coming out of hiatus, it’s a bit of a head scratcher, especially since she’s been working on her own movies for several years now.

The two have been linked since the late 1990s, and both have achieved critical acclaim, winning multiple awards at Sundance and producing successful movies of the highest artistic standards.
