Kill Bill 3 Won't Happen, So Just Stop Hoping Already, Says Tarantino
Beatrix Kiddo is not coming back; get over it.
Quentin Tarantino has made a lot of great movies, and while Reservoir Dogs and Pulp Fiction may be his most beloved films, the two-volume Kill Bill saga is certainly one of his most commercially successful projects. People loved seeing Uma Thurman as the vengeful Beatrix Kiddo and praised Tarantino for cleverly paying homage to dozens of martial arts B-movies from the 1970s.
And although rumours about a third Kill Bill movie have been circulating ever since volume 2 hit theatres, Tarantino seems to be finally ready to put the issue to rest once and for all.
As soon as Thurman's daughter Maya Hawke became a big actress in her own right, people immediately began speculating that she might star alongside or even instead of her mother in Kill Bill 3, an idea that a lot of people got behind. However, it doesn't seem that Hawke or Thurman will be starring in the next Tarantino film, as it will have no connection to the Kill Bill universe.
‘I don’t see that. My last film is about a film critic, a male critic. And he plays in the 70s,’ Tarantino said.
So, unfortunately, it would appear that there is no place for Beatrix Kiddo in the maestro's upcoming feature film, but that doesn't mean that Tarantino will never make Kill Bill 3, does it? Actually, in all probability, it does mean exactly that seeing how Tarantino recently announced he'd be retiring from making movies after he had made ten feature films and the upcoming The Movie Critic is going to be his tenth.
While some fans were quick to dismiss Tarantino's retirement plans as pure nonsense, arguing that the famous director would not be able to live without writing and directing movies, there is a chance he might actually be serious about bidding adieu to directing films.
After all, he didn't say he would be retiring from writing scripts for other people to direct or from writing books, and all of the books he's published recently have become huge bestsellers and earned him millions.
While it would sure be nice to see Beatrix Kiddo again, the two original volumes told a near-perfect revenge story, outside of which Black Mamba would be like a fish out of water. Sometimes, when you love them, you have to let them go.
