Quentin Tarantino is in full press mode and currently making the rounds to promote his newest western The Hateful Eight, which drops later this month. He recently sat down with Ben Mankiewicz of What The Flick?! to discuss the new film, his back catalog, the recent backlash from the police he’s been receiving, but more importantly the possible future of another Kill Bill movie.
There definitely is a possibility … stop short of saying probability, but there could be! It could be. For one reason in particular. Well one, me and Uma [Thurman] would have a really good time working together again. And I wanted the character to have … I put that character – not Uma, I put Uma through a lot too – but I put that character of Beatrix Kiddo through a lot. And so I wanted her to have this much time for peace. I wanted her to have some time with her daughter and not have to be in the genre-machine. She could actually enjoy her life for a while. The whole idea was that everyone would be as old as they are.
But the other thing is I think Kill Bill is pretty much hands down probably my most visionary movie, insofar as I really went beyond the Pulp Fiction stuff to create this world that really doesn’t exist. Where they actually have samurai sword holders on airplanes where the cup holder would be and that’s all good and everyone accepts it. That’s just how it is! Fourteen year old girls hang out in bubblegum bars and eviscerate men and get away with it. So the thing about it was that is probably my most visionary cinematic contribution. Now since then my work has taken a turn towards literary and it’s gotten denser and denser … so it would be nice to go back to a visceral world that’s not about the words any more.
Tarantino likes to float ideas that sometimes don’t always come to fruition, but he also addressed the possibility of Kill BIll 3 during an interview back in the Fall. He’s also mentioned Uma’s desire to return to the role, he even worked out a rough plot where the daughter of Copperhead (Vivica A. Fox) returns to enact revenge on The Bride.
It would be awesome if Tarantino pulls off The Kill Bill Trilogy and it would definitely join our list of Best Trilogies of All Time. Check out the interview below and keep your fingers crossed.
