Quentin Tarantino Says He’s Not Thinking About ‘Kill Bill 3’ Anymore, Wants To Tackle Horror

Quentin Tarantino Says He's Not Thinking About 'Kill Bill 3' Anymore, Wants To Tackle Horror

Quentin Tarantino is a man who loves to talk, especially about his future projects. Longtime fans may remember him name-checking “Inglourious Basterds” years before cameras started rolling or talking up the possibility of a Vega Brothers team-up, but the holy grail for fans, recently, has been “Kill Bill 3.”

The past couple years has seen the “Pulp Fiction” filmmaker backtrack on his promises to return to the saga of Beatrix Kiddo and finally admitting last year that a third installment was probably unlikely. Speaking with The Independent recently, the director revealed he’d put the kung fu flicks behind him. “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,” he said.

Fair enough, but whatever happened to his wistful thinking about calling it quits after 10 movies during the run-up to “Django Unchained?” Well, he’s had a change of heart there too: “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.” 

What else does he feel he needs to do? His ‘Basterds’ spin-off? An actual western? How about something a little scarier? Said Tarantino, “If there was something I would like to work on again, it would be Honshu’s movies, maybe. Or a horror movie, perhaps.” A horror movie through the eyes of Tarantino? Count us in, even if it won’t be a serial killer movie.
