Quentin Tarantino spoke with Andy Cohen on AndyRadio and revealed that there is a good chance he’ll actually make Kill Bill 3, however, that won’t be the next thing he ends up doing.
TARANTINO: “I just had dinner with Uma Thurman last night. We were at a really cool Japanese restaurant. I do have an idea of what I would do with [‘Kill Bill Vol. 3’]. That was the whole thing, conquering the concept. What has happened to The Bride since then? And what do I want to do?”
Quentin also suggests if the film ends up happening it won’t end up being made until the next three years. Revealing that his Bounty Law series (he’s been talking up for months now) and a play he’s written will likely be happening before Kill Bill 3.
TARANTINO: “I didn’t just want to come up with some cockamamie adventure. [The character] doesn’t deserve that. The Bride has fought long and hard. I have an idea now that could be interesting. I still wouldn’t do it for a little bit. It would be at least three years from now. It is definitely in the cards.”
You can listen to that exchange below.
We’ve been hearing for years that Quentin wanted to make the third installment, potentially having the people The Bride had to go through to get her revenge coming back to get their own. Elle Driver is blind yet seemingly still alive, surviving members of the Crazy 88, and Nikkia Bell (daughter of Vernita Green) might now be old enough to take on the Bride.
His series would be based on Rick Dalton’s western show from the 1950s briefly featured in Once Upon A Time In Hollywood and has confirmed he’s written a handful of episodes already while trying to figure out where it will air.
Seeing him tackle a play is neat since the main reason why we even got The Hateful Eight was after the script leaked Tarantino cancelled the film out of frustration then end-up doing a live-reading of the script and it got him interested in making the movie after the headaches.
Interesting enough, Quentin’s recent release Once Upon A Time In Hollywood included cameos from both Uma Thruman’s on-screen daughter Perla Haney-Jardine (played B.B. Kiddo in Kill Bill Vol.2) and her real-life daughter Maya Hawke.
While there had been some hint that he might have made that Star Trek film that was written by screenwriter Mark L. Smith (The Revenant) as his 10th and final feature film, that remains to be seen.
In Kill Bill Volume 1, a former assassin, known simply as The Bride (Uma Thurman), wakes from a coma four years after her jealous ex-lover Bill (David Carradine) attempts to murder her on her wedding day. Fueled by an insatiable desire for revenge, she vows to get even with every person who contributed to the loss of her unborn child, her entire wedding party, and four years of her life. After devising a hit list, The Bride sets off on her quest, enduring unspeakable injury and unscrupulous enemies. The Bride ends up tracking down one of the villains in Toyko, Japan. This eventually leads to a hyper-violent clash with Yazkua overlord O’Ren Ishii (Lucy Liu) and her sword-wielding gang the Crazy 88.
In Kill Bill Volume 2, The Bride (Uma Thurman) picks up where she left off in volume one with her quest to finish the hit list she has composed of all of the people who have wronged her, including ex-boyfriend Bill (David Carradine), who tried to have her killed four years ago during her wedding to another man. Leaving several dead in her wake, she eventually tracks down Bill in Mexico. Using the skills she has learned during her assassin career, she attempts to finish what she set out to do in the first place.
