Quentin Tarantino says 'Kill Bill 3' could potentially still happen
Alright guys, don't panic just yet. 'Kill Bill Vol. 3' isn't dead just yet even after American filmmaker Quentin Tarantino announced that he would be retiring after his tenth movie.
No one really knows what the future holds for the filmmaker because, let's just say, even he's pretty confused himself.
Tarantino spoke up in a recent interview on MTV's 'Happy Sad Confused' podcast that he's still in contact with Kill Bill's leading star, Uma Thurman and that the two are very much willing to make a second sequel happen.
"Me and Uma have talked about it recently, frankly, to tell you the truth,” Tarantino said. “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 is Quentin Tarantino really gonna make a third Kill Bill film? Let's just say he has definitely added it to his 'maybe' pile.
The idea of Thurman and Tarantino reuniting for another action-packed adventure sure is exciting, especially after we've seen the film's potential shine through in the 2003 'Kill Bill Vol. 1' and it's 2004 sequel, 'Kill Bill Vol. 2'.
The only question now is if Tarantino would break his plans to retire after his tenth film.
His latest movie 'Once Upon a Time in Hollywood' is his ninth directorial effort, which means he's only got one more film lined up if he's serious about retiring -which by the way, we don't buy considering his potential contribution to the new 'Star Trek' movie.
Plus, Tarantino reminded fans through GQ Australia that he was really going to retire, saying: "I think when it comes to theatrical movies, I’ve come to the end of the road. I see myself writing film 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.”
Still, fans are on the edge as it a second sequel doesn't seem very likely.
Just a little background, it might be surprising to hear this news after Thurman publicly called out Tarantino for putting her at risk when he insisted she perform a dangerous stunt on 'Kill Bill Vol. 2'. The actress was injured after crashing the vehicle on set.
But all is well after she clarified that she didn't want the issue to affect their creative friendship.
"When you know someone for as long as I've known him, 25 years of creative collaboration, yes, did we have some tragedies take place? Sure. But you can't reduce that type of history and legacy," she told Entertainment Weekly.
