Quentin Tarantino Teases Third ‘Kill Bill’ Movie – Starring Uma Thurman’s Daughter, Maya Hawke
Director Quentin Tarantino said he’d like to write the story for a potential third installment in the Kill Bill film series, which starred Uma Thurman and the late David Carradine. Tarantino both directed and wrote the two Kill Bill movies both of which were meant to be one epic film – it was later split up into two separate installments – Kill Bill: Volume 1 was released on October 10, 2003 and Kill Bill: Volume 2 was released on April 16, 2004. Both films received wide acclaim from fans and critics, who praised the story, characters and action scenes.
The original Kill Bill movies revolve around Beatrix “The Bride/Black Mamba” Kiddo (Thurman) as she goes on a quest to hunt down her former lover Bill (Caradine) after he and his followers (Lucy Liu, Darryl Hannah, Michael Madsen and Vivica A. Fox) murder her fiancé and put her into a coma. The second film ends with Beatrix achieving her goal by killing Bill and taking her daughter B.B. (Perla Haney-Jardine) home with her.
Tarantino has thrown around the concept of a third Kill Bill film for quite some time. One story he had thought of would see the daughter of Vernita Green (Fox) teaming up with Elle Driver (Hannah) to get revenge on the Bride for murdering her mother. Tarantino said that he would love to see B.B. follow in the footsteps of her mother and go up against another fierce opponent, calling the idea “exciting.” “I think it’s just revisiting the characters 20 years later and just imagining the Bride and her daughter, Bebe, having 20 years of peace, and then that peace is shattered,” he told EW recently. “And now the Bride and Bebe are on the run and just the idea of being able to cast Uma and cast her daughter Maya [Hawke] in the thing would be f—ing exciting.”
