Quentin Tarantino Says He’ll Probably Never Make KILL BILL VOL. 3; Won’t Make a James Bond Film Either

     December 11, 2012


Back in 2009, Quentin Tarantino seemed to be fairly up on the idea of Kill Bill Vol. 3.  A possible premise involved Vernita Green’s (Vivica A. Fox) daughter growing up and coming after The Bride (Uma Thurman) for revenge.  At one point, Tarantino said he wanted to wait until that actress was old enough to play the role, and nine years later, that time could be now…except Tarantino is no longer interested.  Speaking to We Got This Covered, Tarantino says,

“I don’t know if there’s ever going to be a Kill Bill. Vol 3. We’ll see, probably not though.”

Hit the jump for more including why Tarantino will never make a James Bond movie.

quentin-tarantinoKeep in mind that Kill Bill was never intended to be a trilogy.  Kill Bill was envisioned as one long film, but he was forced to cut it down into two parts (Kill Bill: The Whole Bloody Affair has never been officially released in the United States).

As always, there’s really no telling what Tarantino has planned next.  His latest indication is a possible trilogy involving Inglourious Basterds and Django Unchained.  The third film would be a “companion piece”, and I can see how it could fit in with regards to three movies in three genres in three time periods.

Moving on, for those holding out hope that Tarantino will ever make a James Bond picture, you can put those hopes to rest.  He tells We Got This Covered that, he wanted to direct Casino Royale, “but they missed their opportunity.”  I find it difficult to believe any producer would turn down Tarantino, but either way, it’s not going to happen.  I’m not really bothered by Tarantino refusing to make a Bond film.  He’s skilled at making amalgams of a genre, and if he’s going to make a spy movie, I’d rather it be in his own voice rather than having to play by the rules of a franchise.

    Shame about Kill Bill 3. Not really a surprise since Tarantino has announced prequels to nearly all of his films that never ended up getting made. He likes to talk though, so there’s still a chance it’ll happen.

    Also, he’s talked about possibly doing a 30s gangster film, so that could be the companion to Basterds and Django.

    I also would like to see Tarantino do a spy film, so long as it was with his own original characters.

    I love Tarantino but I can understand why a producer wouldn’t hire him to direct Bond. Its not that difficult to get why not. He probably comes in over budget, doesn’t stay true to the style and tone of prior Bonds, and isn’t that easy to work with and wants too much control. Better to stay with a safe choice.

    Good to know. Kill Bill was pure garbage, and Tarantino making a Bond film is like seeing Bay making a psycho thriller… that is: it will never happen for good.

    I’m fine with Tarantino never making a Bond film. I love what he does with his own movies but I simply can’t imagine his directing style in a Bond film. It would ruin it.

    Tarantino was at his best with the witty dialogue centric Pulp Fiction and Jackie Brown. I had no desire to see Kill Bill 2 after seeing the first. Basterds was fun but forgetable. Then there was that “grind house” flick with the over the top action taking place on the hood of a moving car… yawn.

        How much better a place would the world be if we all collectively decided to only respond to trolls w/ Big Lebowski references?

    Tarantino Bond film?

    Three hours of Bond in a diner pounding down coffee and cigarettes while rhapsodizing about how Russian vodka is like watching Scooby Doo. Then he shoots two guys and the credits roll.

    That’s somebody’s cup of tea. But not mine.

    Christopher Nolan is the likely candidate for the next tier of movies down the line. He already made one with the Dark Knight Rises.
