Quentin Tarantino and Uma Thurman in talks for third ‘Kill Bill’

After the release of Once Upon A Time In Hollywood, fans have been speculating as to what Quentin Tarantino’s tenth (and supposedly final) film will be. 

Now, it appears there is some evidence that a third instalment to the iconic Kill Bill films could be on the way.

Vivica A. Fox, who played Vernita Green in Kill Bill Vol. 1, has shed some light on the premise for a potential third instalment of the saga.

Of course, the thought of a third Kill Bill film is not such a surprise since director Quentin Tarantino has been teasing the idea for years. However, Tarantino is a secretive man, so ideas surrounding the film were mostly left to the imagination. That is until Vivica A. Fox (who played Vernita Green in Kill Bill Vol. 1) shared some saucy information. 

The premise of Kill Bill Vol. 3? Revenge, of course. Fox filmed the seminal fight scene against Thurman’s Beatrix Kiddo, which subsequently set up the idea of a third Kill Bill film which would feature Vernita’s daughter Nikki, played by Ambrosia Kelley.

Fox discussed the premise for the third film with The Hollywood Reporter:

“Oh my gosh, I can’t wait,” she said. “I think they’re waiting for [Vernita’s] daughter to grow up. So, the latest I’ve heard is that [Quentin] and Uma [Thurman] have been talking, and I’d love for them to figure it out. Quentin is great with flashbacks and figuring out some kind of way to make his characters alive again in a film. So, I’m really hoping that Vernita Green gets her revenge.”

Not only did Fox discuss the potential new film, but also looked back on making the original. She even shed some light on what it was like to prepare for her role where she opposes Uma Thurman:

“Oh my God, I trained for six months. I literally went from a size 8 to a size 2. It was intense and gruelling, but I loved every single bump and bruise. I’ll never forget the fourth and final day of filming the fight – I counted 30 bruises on my body, and I was proud of every single one of them. I earned them.”

Earlier this year, Tarantino said that after his tenth film was complete, he would be stepping away from directing to spend more time with family. So, will he finish things off with Kill Bill Vol. 3, or will he surprise us with something wild and new?
