While The Hateful Eight starts raking in the positive reviews and begins to generate Oscar buzz, the director Quentin Tarantino is starting to think about the future.
He's done eight films, and so it is time to think about number nine. Many people are already wondering what it will be, as Tarantino films are some of the most highly anticipated. That's the mark of a great director I suppose, and Tarantino is right up there with the best of them.
Now, onto the film itself, which Tarantino has finally spoken about in an interview with Outlet, when asked about the possibility of another Kill Bill film:
“I’m not committing to it, but I wouldn’t be surprised if The Bride made one more appearance before the whole thing is said and done.
I am talking to Uma about it just a little bit. Some of the stuff that I’d written that never made it into the movie that maybe I could use.”
I've got an interesting question that this whole situation makes me want to ask, but how about we go and relive the first and second films before I ask it?
Kill Bill Vol. 1
The first film came out to fantastic critical reception, and made everyone crave more. The Crazy 88 and the ridiculous training montages, it all culminated in a incredibly satirical action film which you just can't hate.
The Bride wakens from a four-year coma. The child she carried in her womb is gone. Now she must wreak vengeance on the team of assassins who betrayed her - a team she was once part of.
Kill Bill Vol. 2
After the first film, everyone knew what to expect from the second. The Bride had a list, and there were three people left on it. So everyone thought that she would go and she would kill them. And then she did.
The Bride continues her quest of vengeance against her former boss and lover Bill, the reclusive bouncer Budd and the treacherous, one-eyed Elle.
And this brings me to my question.
How Can There Be A Kill Bill Vol. 3?
Bill is dead. Sorry if that spoils it for you but it came out ten years ago and it was the title of both films. How can Tarantino do a third film if there is no Bill to Kill? And there literally isn't, David Carradine died in 2009, so Bill can't be in it unless it is a younger version of him.
The only thing I can think of is a prequel, showing The Bride and the rest of the people she hunted down and killed when they were still a team. You could have a younger Bill, and bring back all of the original cast aside from Carradine. It could be pretty awesome, but is it better to leave the series well enough alone?
