Uma Thurman (and child!) will Kill Bill again… but how?

Beatrix and BBThough I normally don’t place much credence in what directors and actors say at film festivals because I can understand how the excitement of being there can make one say just about anything, director Quentin Tarantino’s pronouncement that he will make a third sequel to 2003 and 2004’s Kill Bill movies is completely plausible.

While at the Morelia International Film Festival in Mexico, Variety reported at a conference on Saturday that Tarantino said that he’d like to “give Uma Thurman’s central character and her daughter Beebe 10 years of peace before the next bloody installment” which means that the release date would be in 2014. Before that, however, Tarantino also told the conference attendees that he’d like to do another movie before then, adding that it would be something like a gangster movie or a western.

Of course, we all know that Tarantino is amazingly tenacious when it comes to getting his pet projects finished which is why I’m not calling this “Myth busted.” There’s also a surprising amount of material to mine here because when Beatrix Kiddo left Nikki Bell alive after killing Copperhead, she did say that Nikki could come after her seeking revenge.

Ooh… a teenage and preteen girl fighting to the death? Definitely sounds like a Tarantino-esque film to me.

    I loved the Kill Bill films so would be nice to finish it with one more but then no more, as it would get old…

    And let's not forget that the ultimate fate of Ellie Driver (aka: “California Mountain Snake”) was purposefully left ambiguous at the end… Despite the handicap, ten years might just be long enough for her to pull off becoming something like a new Zatoichi.

    Yeah, I'll admit to having fantasized about a third Kill Bill installment…

    After these movies came out, I remember hearing word of Tarantino's ramblings about filming a few extra scenes with Nikki Bell and/or Beebe, and planning to use the same actresses 10-20 years down the line to do another Kill Bill. Of course, I also remember his plan to do a movie about Bill's life and one about the sensei, one of which was to be done in an anime style.
    And recently, he's hinted at the possibility to somehow tell other stories in the Inglourious Basterds world, so I'm taking it all with a grain of salt until it's past pre-production.

    Yes, I am that one guy who will be the opposite of looking forward to this, or any other Tarantino film.
