Quentin Tarantino is known for shooting from the hip when announcing never-gonna-happen future film projects—remember when he promised a Pulp Fiction and Reservoir Dogs crossover called The Vega Brothers? Cancelled. That Inglorious Basterds prequel? Yeah, probably not. And for years, he’s been touting a third Kill Bill film, which will take place 10 years after the first two, and feature a young woman hunting down The Bride (Uma Thurman) on a mission of vengeance. And guess what—it’s not going to happen now, either.
“I don’t know if there’s ever going to be a Kill Bill. Vol 3. We’ll see, probably not though.”
This isn’t entirely surprising, nor is it even all that disappointing—given that Tarantino has made it clear that he has an exit strategy that will likely live him with a 10 film oeuvre, and that he now only has about three films left to make (assuming he doesn’t change his mind about that, too), we’d rather see more new films rather than a sequel or prequel of any sort.
What do you think of the Tarantino news?
