Fans of Quentin Tarantino’s Kill Bill films have long been teased with rumors of a third installment. While we’d love to bring you a report of an official confirmation (much like today’s awesome Trainspotting news), sadly that has not happened yet. But we can at least tell you that it’s a possibility. Even better, we can tell you that Tarantino himself says it’s a possibility.
While making the media rounds for The Hateful Eight, Tarantino discussed the chances of Beatrix Kiddo returning to the big screen (via ScreenRant):
“There definitely is a possibility… stop short of saying a probability. But there could be. For one reason in particular… Uma and me would have a really good time working together again. I put the character of Beatrix Kiddo through a lot and I wanted [Kiddo] to have this much time for peace.”
So you’re saying there’s a chance…
Tarantino went on to say that Vol. 3 would not pick up the story of Kiddo immediately where we left things in Vol. 2. Rather, the two stories would be separated by as much time as has passed in real life. So far that’s 11 years and counting. We’re all for patience being a virtue and everything, but COME ON, QUENTIN!
Interestingly enough, Tarantino hinted that the next chapter of the Kill Bill saga may not hit theaters at all, opting instead for a TV mini-series:
“It would be wonderful and I would be happy to do it and it would be a very invigorating experience, but everyone is going down this ‘TV is so great’ road and I’m only simply pointing out that there is a difference between the two of them.”
Since it’s Tarantino, one would imagine a film will always be his first option. Still, the idea of a Kill Bill mini-series is pretty intriguing. We’ll have to see how this plays out.
Whichever medium he decides to go with, it’s clear fans are very ready to see Kill Bill Vol. 3 happen. Here’s hoping we don’t have to wait for too much longer.
