Quentin Tarantino, the director of this year’s Golden Globe contender Once Upon A Time in Hollywood, has previously said that his upcoming Star Trek movie might be the last one that he ever makes. But the director–who is currently working on a play and television series that he has not discussed the details of–is also thinking about how to bring back one of his classic characters.
In an interview with Andy Cohen on Sirius XM (embedded below,) Tarantino was asked about the long-rumored Kill Bill 3, and whether it will ever happen. “Well, I just so happen to have had dinner with Uma Thurman last night,” Tarantino says, saying that they had a “lovely night”. Speaking to the question of Kill Bill specifically, he says “well, I do have an idea of what I would do. That was the whole thing, conquering that concept of, ‘what’s happened to the bride? And what do I want to do?'”
Tarantino says that The Bride “deserves better” than “some cockamamie adventure,” but that he now has an idea that “could be interesting.” However, it’ll have to wait until he’s done with his current projects. “I wouldn’t do it for a little bit. It would be at least three years from now or something like that. But it’s definitely in the ether.”
Tarantino has talked about making sequels and spin-offs before, though, including earlier career plans to make a film that would unite the Vega brothers from Reservoir Dogs and Pulp Fiction, which never happened. However, that was planned as a prequel that became less viable as actors Michael Madsen and John Travolta aged. Kill Bill 3 undoubtedly has a greater chance of being made.
