Tarantino Has Given Up On “Kill Bill Vol. 3”

Filmmaker Quentin Tarantino has previously floated around the idea of a third volume in the “Kill Bill” saga. In a recentt interview though, the director appears to have moved on with no plans for such a project. Instead, he wants to stretch out into other genres. He tells The Independent:

“I’ve done what I wanted to do by the time I was this age. Today, I’m further down the road. There are no genres I absolutely want to do any more, like ticking boxes: ‘This, done’. I don’t think about Kill Bill 3 that much, as… we already visited them. If there was something I would like to work on again, it would be Honshu’s movies (Japanese Westerns), maybe. Or a horror movie, perhaps.”

Tarantino also previously spoke of a previous personal goal of his to make only ten films in total, and how he ultimately changed his mind about that with age and experience:

“There was a time when I said I wanted to stop after 10 movies, but I went back on the idea. OK, it would sound really cool because it’s a round number and it would make sense as I would have made three movies per decade, but it’s not fixed in time.

I still have some more things to do before being done with movies. Up to now, everything’s fine. To me, the last 20 years have gone well: I’m happy with my career, I’m happy to be where I am now, I’m happy with the way my work has been received, inside the cinema industry and outside.

But it might not last. At the minute, I only answer to my own ideas, even if I try my hardest not to be conscious about myself and about what I do. In fact, the person I trust least to talk about my work is myself.”
