Tarantino Announces His Intention To Make Kill Bill 3

kill bill the bride Tarantino Announces His Intention To Make Kill Bill 3

If, like me, you’re a huge fan of writer/director Quentin Tarantino, you will be excited by this little piece of news from BadTaste.it: He intends to continue the messy adventures of The Bride with a third Kill Bill movie! During an interview on the Italian chat show Parla con Me (or “Talk To Me”), Tarantino was asked (from what I can understand – the questions are being asked in Italian) if he would be making any follow up films to his previous work, and after saying, “it will never happen,” to a Pulp Fiction sequel, he reveals his intention to make Kill Bill 3.

Tarantino doesn’t give us any solid details on what Kill Bill 3 (Vol. 3?) might be about (I’ll get to what I think it will be in a minute), but this is understandable since it’s (presumably) just in the idea stages at the moment. But he DOES let us know a couple of things: He wants it to take place 10 years after the events of Kill Bill Vol.2 (for that to be in real time, too, he’d have to wait until 2014) and he reveals part of his reasoning for wanting to make another in that he loves the character of The Bride so much.

Sounds like reason enough to me! If you want to hear the “announcement” from the lips of Mr. Tarantino himself (“The Bride will fight again!”), check out the video below from the Italian talk show Parla con Me (the Kill Bill 3 stuff starts at 5:55):

Well, even if it isn’t exactly OFFICIAL official confirmation of plans for Kill Bill 3 (casting news, production start date and so forth), and as we’ve learned in the past, Tarantino is notorious for announcing projects and never getting around to them (or at least taking ages to, as he did with Inglourious Basterds). But I still am very excited that a third Kill Bill is now on the table.

Some Kill Bill spoilers follow…

Tarantino has hinted in the past at the possibility of another Kill Bill, not least by the scene in Vol.1 where The Bride tells Vernita Green’s (played by Vivica A. Fox) daughter, after killing her mother, that if she’s still, “raw about it,” then The Bride will be waiting. I honestly think that’s at least ONE of the routes Tarantino will go with Kill Bill 3 – it just seems too fitting NOT to be. The Bride went to get revenge on those who killed her daughter (or so she thought…), her husband and at least TRIED to kill her, and so it makes sense that Vernita Green’s daughter, Nikki, would want revenge on her.

End Spoilers

Perhaps we’ll even get to see The Bride’s daughter, B.B., go sword-to-sword with Vernita Green’s daughter…

Of course, the sad passing of Bill himself, David Carradine, means that they can’t really have any flashback scenes involving the character. Not unless they recast which, out of respect for Carradine, I don’t think Tarantino would do. So I assume that, along with the “Vernita Green’s daughter getting revenge on The Bride” storyline, Tarantino will exclude any Bill storyline (maybe he’d include one done in anime, like the O-Ren Ishii sequence in Vol. 1). Which begs the question: Will Tarantino still call it Kill Bill? After all – and in case you haven’t seen the first two you might wanna skip the next few words – The Bride did ultimately kill Bill, so it doesn’t really make sense to call the third movie as such. Or am I way off?

David Carradine as "Bill"

As I said, Tarantino has a penchant for saying he’s going to be making something and then either not or taking a long time to do so, but I think we can count Kill Bill 3 as more of a possibility/probability than most. I don’t know about you but I’m stoked to see Uma Thurman’s Bride back-in-action after years of peace and quiet with her daughter.

What do you think of the prospect of a third Kill Bill? Do you like the idea of revisiting The Bride character after 10 years and continuing on the bloody fighting we saw so much of in Volumes 1 and 2? Or is the story told and Tarantino should just leave it alone? Let us know your thoughts and opinions below.

  1. People say it was his weakest films but I think it was great! I can’t wait for a third one.
    Nikki (greens daughter was quite a clear one) is a obvious clue, but The Bride “Beatrix kiddo” actually never really killed Elle, and she could be part of the third one an be a blind fighter like some martial art films!!

    • Well I think she’s dead, because of the black mamba.

    • Which people say that?

  2. It should be called ‘Fox Force Five’

    • OMG “three tomatoes are walking down the street- a poppa tomato, a momma tomato, and a little baby tomato. baby tomato starts lagging behind. poppa tomato gets angry, goes over to the baby tomato, and smooshes him… and says, catch up!”

  3. obviously it is not coming, as this post was made 4 years ago.

  4. As fantastic and a dream come true for my favorite series of movies with my favorite director to have yet another sequel just sounds too good to be true. The movies are beyond violent so if you are under the age of about 16 (i saw it at 14 but i am a bit more mentally mature than some). I dont see it happening. If they do i can only imagine it will be a very good one. After all Quentin Tarentino has not made a bad movie in his career (four rooms maybe but thats not entirely his movie) so i should imagine this one as impressive and exciting!!

  5. Elle resurfaces in Okinawa in a familiar bar with 3 students under her tutelage. One is a Japanese boy. Another is a Brazilian girl. Both are in their twenties. The third student is a young African American girl aged 14. The blind instructor receives a phone call from an anonymous japanese speaker, to whom she responds with a distinct change in demeanor from her last appearance. “Good.” She answers to a confirmation on the whereabouts of a young girl named Bethany in Sydney. Elle has picked up the pieces of Bill’s assassination network and reformed the his deadly viper assassination squad. After gaining international notoriety for being the sole survivor of the cold revenge of the now no-where-to-be-found bride, and the killing of Pai Mei, she inherited the powers of Bill and the various enclaves of his associates. With a strong relationship between the Yakuza’s and her group, along with various ties in various countries, her search finally ends. The child of the infamous Beatrix Kiddo appears to be graduating from her junior high school in the coming month.

    • I like that too, good idea, but I think you need to include Sophie in there too because she was left alive but without her arms.

  6. I’d call it Kill Elle. Remember, Elle Driver is not dead. The bride left her blind but very much alive (although a black mamba was lurking around somewhere). I think Elle would assemble a team (including Nikki) to kidnap her daughter. Then she’d have to fight to save her before an execution date. Elle (though broken at first) would have been trained-up by a blind kung-fu master to fight without vision. That’s my story and I’m stickin’ to it.

  7. Bud’s boss can’t get ahold of him to come back to work, so he drives out to his trailer to find Elle still alive. He rushes her to the hospital where she uses her million dollars to get surgery on both eyes. After recovery, she tracks down Nicki, finding her in an orphanage. After her father killed himself from the grief of losing his wife. She takes Nicki under her wing and teaches her the “Elle Style” of fighting. While doing so, Sophie returns with mechanically enhances prosthetic arms. They teach Nicki together. They enroll Nicki in the same school that B.B. attends. Nicki approaches her and threatens her. B.B. goes home and tells Beatrix what happened. Beatrix then starts training B.B. Pai Mei style kung fu and the art of the samurai sword. B.B. asks about the past and questions the current decisions that are being made. Beatrix explains with the animated flashback (since David Carridine has past away). And then the fights go from there with Beatrix, Elle, Sophie, and Nicki.

    • Good movie script layla

  8. I hope that it’s called “Kill Kiddo”. Great potential for the plot to be entirely flipped and focus on Nikki’s revenge. Can’t wait!!!

  9. he should call it Killed Bill.

  10. The Kill Bill series is without doubt, a tour de force of adrenalin pumping action but with a coherent, artfully crafted dialogue and story line which only Quentin can pull off with such consistency. I am normally not a fan of sequels or prequels which are now endless appearing due to a lack of original story ideas in Hollywood etc. but Quentin is one of the exceptions to the rule and CAN spin a great and worthy sequel which is why….I believe Kill Bill or Kill “…” will be a third, solid, quality production.

    Personally, I would like to see a future film where Kiddo, and Mark Wahlbergs “Shooter” character combine to expunge the true pathogens of our spices but then again, fantasy IS for free:-)

    The Kill Bill series is without doubt, a tour de force of adrenalin pumping action but with a coherent, artfully crafted dialogue and story line which only Quentin can pull off with such consistency and panache. I am normally not a fan of sequels or prequels which are endlessly appearing due to a lack of original story ideas in Hollywood etc. but Quentin is one of the exceptions to the rule and CAN spin a great and worthy sequel which is why….I believe Kill Bill or Kill “…” will be a third, solid, quality production with snappy dialogue, plenty of explicit gore (although used with artful discretion) and of course, the charismatic, mesmerizing Ulma Thurmon.
    It will be interesting to see if Elie Driver, (Daryl Hanna) returns, missing two eyes since her last encounter with Kiddo resulted in a second “pluck”..ouch! The villains will likely be those that survived which include the ruthless, multi lingual Sofie Fatale, and of course as mentioned above, the daughter of Vernita Green which I predicted back then, left the door open for her return in a sequel.

  13. I love the Kill Bill volumes.. but a 3rd installment is a TERRIBLE idea! They need to leave it as it is (which I think they will, thankfully) because it is perfect.

    Everyone else hoping for a 3rd is dreaming… I mean, they want the girl who they’ve been rooting for for two movies to be killed? Hasn’t she been through enough? Oh, she killed Vernita (who shot at her first.. and you know, killed Kiddo’s fiance and friends and beat her up bloody) in front of her daughter – which wasn’t her intention at all. If she was to be ‘square’ then she would have killed the daughter and Green’s husband.

    And now people are saying they want nikki to team up with a one-armed cell phone addict who doesn’t fight and a blind blonde girl who relied more on deception and poison than physical fighting?

  14. Wow! I totally thought and hoped that would be the plot, or the TWO DAUGHTERS GROW up then fight against each other vernita’s daughter and beebee.

  15. Plz make a third one! Tarantino is incredible and everything he creates will be tha s***

  16. 4 hours of “Kill Bill” and “the world is normal again for the Lioness” is done . . . Tarrantino has said all he wanted to say, and if he forces it, the movie will suck. Uma Thurman will turn 45 if any film is completed in 2015 . . . she did great work, looked wonderful, had fun, etc., no sense in having critics say she wasn’t “good enough” in Vol 3. Thta’s was one reason Jody Foster didn’t do any sequels to Silence of the Lambs — then Starling character got twisted when they tried to extend the franchise when it wasn’t meant to, and different people had new ideas. Thurman & Tarrantino own the characters, but they put in their best work already; why force something they didn’t contemplate 10 years ago.

  17. Death of bill continuez would be a great instalment..

  18. I’d much prefer a prequel of Kill Bill. Cast Joseph Gordon-Levitt as a young Bill and tell us how the Deadly Vipers Assassination Squad came to be.

  19. Everyone reads through what I think about on a special TV screen, my seriously smart thinking, what I’m told, what I’m laughing at, what I deal with, my iq, what I had stolen from me, fast thinking, my looks ours, these voices, who’s winding me up my whole life, who’s saving me, everything about me. Or everyone from earth. Times running out for my lifespan. I died badly. Most powerfull family members. Brainscan, bodyscan. What they discuss.

    It’s what I see going through my mind or sight. That there’s somone living my amazing perfect life over and over again for nearly twenty

    I’m being wound up by everyone’s lips.

  20. Before the dawn of time and fade to black to piss off everything. They read through that and print it off. I see somone screaming with jealousy at me in thin air. I walk about the streets laughing to myself to scare away evil.
