I am the first one to get excited once a Quentin Tarantino project is greenlit, but before that point I have learned to take his words for what they are, just talking.
Quentin is one of the very best self-promoters out there as he knows what the fans want, and that is more Quentin. Quentin all the time. More Kill Bill, more Vega brothers, more ear-less baddies and more Uma. Oh, yes. More Uma Quentin! Put that woman back in yellow and give that Caucasian girl a samurai sword.
So what the hell is my rant about? Well, MTV caught up with QT and brings us a ton of good bits on possible upcoming features including news that he may be making a third Kill Bill flick following the story of the Bride’s daughter, B.B. Get the low-down from the snippets below and then click here to read the entire feature.
On the Grind House double feature with director Robert Rodriguez:
“His movie is called ‘Planet Terror,’ and mine is called ‘Death Proof,’ ” Tarantino revealed. “Mine is sort of a slasher film, but instead of a knife, it’s a car. … His, he’s dealing with zombies and all that stuff. I think his might end up being more violent, but I’m not finished with my [script] yet, so you never know.”
On directing a scene in Sin City 2:
“Well that might not be the case, actually,” the enthusiastic auteur insisted. “I’ll be in Austin [Texas] for a long time on ‘Grind House’ … so [Rodriguez and I will] be doing a thing together, then after that he goes right into ‘Sin City 2,’ so they just have to offer me a scene. Maybe there’s not a scene for me this time, but I can’t imagine that I wouldn’t make myself available if they wanted me [to].”
On Inglorious Bastards:
“I’ve got a big portion of it done,” the Oscar-winning screenwriter said of his “Inglorious” script. “I’ve been waiting for all the ‘Kill Bill’ stuff to be over with, and then to maybe chill on it a little bit, and then [get] ready to finish writing it. … I have like five years of writing behind me now, and I just need to add one more year to it.”
On Kill Bill 3:
…this time following the story of the Bride’s daughter, B.B. (actress Perla Haney-Jardine), when she becomes an adult and confronts the violence that surrounded her youth. “That would be the third one,” Tarantino enthused. “I’d have to wait about 10 years. Uma’s got to get 10 years older, the little girl has to grow up and everything. And then we’d do the next chapter in the ‘Kill Bill’ series.”
On Vega Brothers:
“I could do it,” Tarantino said. “I’ve actually figured out a way, even though the characters have gotten older, to do it. I just have to have the ambition to write it.”
