With Quentin Tarantino supposedly set to retire after his tenth film, there’s lots of debate and speculation on what his final film will be, whether an R-rated Star Trek or Kill Bill Vol. 3 and now the 56-year-old writer/director has once again teased the revival of his acclaimed Uma Thurman-starring martial arts series.

In an interview on Andy Cohen Live, Tarantino revealed that he recently sat down for a dinner with Thurman and that after years of pondering over the project and fans’ requests, he does “have an idea of what I would do with it.“
“That was the whole thing, conquering that concept,” Tarantino said. “What’s exactly happened to the Bride, right, and what do I want to do? I wouldn’t want to just come up with some cockamamie adventure. She doesn’t deserve that. Now I actually have an idea that could be interesting.“
Unfortunately for fans hoping this means it could very well be his next big screen outing, Tarantino did clarify he most likely would not work on the third film for at least three years, as he has written a play and a five-episode TV show and is trying to figure out what he wants to do as his next venture following this year’s five Golden Globe-nominated period dramedy Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.
Kill Bill: Volume 1 was released in 2003 and starred Thurman in the iconic role of The Bride, one of her most recognizable roles. The film was followed by Volume 2 in 2004, both of which received positive reviews from critics.
In a past interview, Tarantino himself was the first one to suggest a Volume 3 as a film he’d like to make happen, wanting to see Vernita Green’s daughter Nikki get her own revenge on Beatrix. In the years since Tarantino has been non-comittal about the project, and any actual traction on the film remains to be seen.
ComingSoon.net asked its readers earlier this year if they’d like to see the writer/director bring the franchise back to life, with 80% agreeing he should make Volume 3, and 79% of voters believing Stranger Things 3 breakout Maya Hawke should star as Beatrix Kiddo, aka The Bride’s, daughter B.B.
