Quentin Tarantino and Uma Thurman have been talking about Kill Bill Vol. 3

Is The Bride coming back for more?

Expectations for Quentin Tarantino’s newest film, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, are running very high, but the auteur has recently suggested another film that he might be in talks about: a third installment of some of his most iconic work, Kill Bill Vol. 3.

Speaking on the Happy Sad Confused podcast, Tarantino says: “Me and Uma have actually talked about it recently, frankly, to tell you the truth.” As in, they talked about it just “last week”, meaning the conversation really is open. “I’m not sure if I’m going to do it,” the filmmaker goes on, “but I have thought about it a little further.” 

“If any of my movies were going to spring from one of my other movies it would be the third Kill Bill.”

And what, exactly, would the storyline consist of? Thurman’s Bride character pretty clearly got her revenge across the first two films (the title is a big hint), but Tarantino’s penchant for playing with the chronology of his films means the third could go pretty much anywhere.

“I’ve wondered about what happens to the bride, you know, ten years later, fifteen years later. What happens to her daughter,” he says in the podcast, before mentioning another potential route: “The whole Bill origin story has always entranced me, with the idea of these three godfathers… and how he had to go through all three of those to become this diabolical Bill.”

Another question is whether Tarantino would count Kill Bill Vol.3 as his tenth film (this, he’s suggested, will be the point that he retires from auteur filmmaking) or lump it together with the first two, which he already considers a single work. It’s all speculation at the moment, but we await further details with bated breath.
