The director teases he has spoken with Uma and has an “interesting idea”
Fresh off receiving multiple Golden Globe nominations for Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, Tarantino was interviewed by Andy Cohen on SirusXM earlier today and asked by the host if Kill Bill: Volume 3 will ever happen.
Tarantino – a little conveniently it must be said – replied with: “I just had dinner with Uma Thurman last night. We were at a really cool Japanese restaurant…I kinda have an idea of something interesting. That was the whole thing, conquering the concept. What has happened to The Bride since then? And what do I want to do?”
He went on to say: “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 on the cards.”
When pushed by Cohen if he would release something else before making a third Kill Bill, he said, “no – well, not a film.” We already know he is planning to release a novel about a jaded WWII vet before his tenth film, and has toyed with the idea of directing a play. As far as Tarantino is concerned, the idea of making the concluding part of the Kill Bill trilogy at this stage is just “in the pot”.
Much as already been said about his Star Trek script and whether he would write and also direct, along with Tarantino dropping hints about venturing into horror territory. He’s a director who knows how to keep buzz around his work alive and speculation about his tenth – and supposedly last – film will continue for some time.
The idea of a third Kill Bill is exciting, although it must be remembered that back in July this year he said almost the exact same thing on Josh Horowitz’s Happy Sad Confused podcast: “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.”

It’s the end, but the moment has been prepared for…
