A few weeks back, the internet went nuts when someone unearthed Quentin Tarantino‘s original casting wish list for Pulp Fiction, which included names like Johnny Depp and Eddie Murphy.
Today, talk has turned to another classic Tarantino flick, or rather, a pair of them, with the director telling an interviewer that a third entry in the Kill Bill series may not be out of the question.
Tarantino, who hasn’t worked with Uma Thurman since the second part of Kill Bill came out, has spoken in the past about his willingness to do another, and called it his most “visionary” movie.
In an interview with What The Flick?!, he spoke more about this, saying that while there are no firm plans for a Kill Bill 3 at this stage, it’s definitely on his mind:
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 has apparently even dreamed up a possible plot for the film, which would be about the daughter of Vivica A Fox‘s Copperhead character, slain by The Bride in the original film, coming back to take revenge.
The director is currently promoting The Hateful Eight, which is out in Australia on January 14 next year.
