There’s rumours that either this film or his next will be his last ever directorial feature, with him previously saying he would retire after ten films (Once Upon A Time being his ninth), he’s talking about his potential R-rated Star Trek film and has commissioned a script to be written for a Django and Zorro team-up film.
There’s a lot going on, and the director has just added more fuel to a roaring career apotheosis fire by saying that he recently spoke to the mercurial Uma Thurman about a third instalment of the Kill Bill franchise.
A third Kill Bill film has been speculated about for a while now, with people thinking it would be called Kill Bride and would follow Vernita Green’s daughter trying to avenge her mother’s death and the hands of The Bride.
But now we’ve got some official statements regarding a potential third instalment, with Tarantino saying on MTV’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.“
The problem of Tarantino still itching to retire remains an obstacle though, with him telling GQ Australia recently:
“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.”
I’m sure he has a back-catalogue of directors he trusts to carry on his legacy though, so maybe not all hope is lost?
All we can do is wait and [hopefully] see…
