Quentin Tarantino Reveals He's Spoken To Uma Thurman About Kill Bill 3
Quentin Tarantino has reveal that he has been speaking very recently with Uma Thurman about making a third volume of Kill Bill.
Tarantino directed the first two volumes that saw Uma Thurman star as the mysterious protagonist known only as 'The Bride' - or by the code name 'Black Mamba' - back in 2003 and 2004.
Speaking ahead of the much-awaited release of his new - and potentially final - film Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, Tarantino refused to shut the door on the persistent speculation about continuing the incredibly popular assassin/martial arts/action film beyond the initial two parts.
The Pulp Fiction director was talking to Josh Horowitz on the Happy Sad Confused podcast when he said that he'd spoken with Thurman about the possibility as recently as a week ago.
Tarantino said: "Me and Uma have talked about it recently, frankly, to tell you the truth. I have thought about it a little further.
"We were talking about it literally last week. If any of my movies were going to spring from my other movies, it would be a third Kill Bill."
So far, that's all we've got to go off. However, there are a couple of ways you can see the plot developing, even though Thurman's character has - in actual fact - killed Bill already, at the end of the last flick.
Remember when The Bride killed Vernita Green (played by Vivica A. Fox) in her own house? Well, that murder was witnessed by Green's young daughter. Thurman's character subsequently said to the little girl: "When you grow up, if you still feel raw about it, I'll be waiting."
That could mean that this next time will see Black Mamba cast in the villain's role that was previously occupied by David Carradine's Bill.
That's obviously nothing more than a guess, but the development and the characters are certainly there. Hey, maybe we'll get our answer one day.
As for Tarantino, if he doesn't make this film, he could be set to hang up his director's riding crop for good after Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.
For a good while now, the sometimes-controversial director has said that he wants to make 10 films before he quits the game.
He recently told GQ Australia: "I think when it comes to theatrical movies, I've come to the end of the road.
"I see myself writing books and starting to write theatre, so I'll still be creative. I just think I've given all I have to give to movies."
If the latest film, which hits cinemas on 15 August 2019, is a runaway success, he said that he might not even make it that far.
He added: "If it's really well received, maybe I won't go to 10. Maybe I'll stop right now! Maybe I'll stop while I'm ahead. We'll see."
