For those of you who were holding out hope that Quentin Tarantino eventually write and direct a Kill Bill 3 movie, we have some bad news for you. De Morgan reports that Tarantino’s tenth and final film will not be a continuation of the Kill Bill saga, but rather a film called The Movie Critic, which will revolve around a movie critic set in the 1970s. Though there have been talks of a third Kill Bill film, Tarantino did not parse his words when he said that he “doesn’t see that happening.”
Quentin Tarantino confirms there will be no Kill Bill 3.
Over the years, Quentin Tarantino has been consistent with the sentiment that he only wants to write and direct 10 films. The main reason behind this decision, which we don’t see him wavering from by any stretch of the imagination, is that he considers it extremely rare for a director to end their career with a good film.
Considering how epic of a run Tarantino has had so far as a director, it only makes sense he wants to end his directorial career with something new rather than revisiting his past work by working on Kill Bill 3.
It’s worth noting that there have been talks in the past of a Kill Bill 3 movie, but with Quentin Tarantino confirming that The Movie Critic will be his final film, we can safely say that we won’t see Uma Thurman reprising the role of Beatrix Kiddo anytime soon (or ever).
Quentin Tarantino made his feature directorial debut with 1992’s Reservoir Dogs, and his impact on filmmaking has been undeniable ever since.
Tarantino has said in the past that he was entertaining the idea of doing another Kill Bill sequel by using ideas that were cut out while making the first two films, but more recently, he has stated that both Kill Bill films are complete on their own, and don’t need to be revisited.
Though many fans will no doubt be devastated to learn that Quentin Tarantino is shutting down any rumors involving Kill Bill 3, we’ve got to give him credit for sticking to his guns. It goes without question that Kill Bill 3 would be a massive success, but Tarantino has also gone on record (many times) to say that he’s not making films for anybody but himself.
So it’s safe to say that if The Movie Critic is the story that the Pulp Fiction director is passionate about telling, then we should probably let him run with it, because it’s clear at this point that he knows what he’s doing.
Quentin Tarantino made his feature directorial debut with 1992’s Reservoir Dogs, and his impact on filmmaking has been undeniable ever since. Known for his use of non-linear storytelling and the comedic use of gratuitous violence, Tarantino has, over the years, made us laugh at depictions of brutality that make us feel ashamed of ourselves for enjoying it so much. If we were to see a Kill Bill 3, there’s no telling how much bloodshed there would be.
Tarantino’s tenth and final film will not be a continuation of the Kill Bill saga, but rather a film called The Movie Critic, which will revolve around a movie critic set in the 1970s.
But simply put, it’s been done before, and it seems that Tarantino wants his final film to be one that’s a little less violent and more reflective as he looks back at his iconic career that is unique as it is disturbing. But who knows? Maybe one day he’ll want to come out of retirement and put out an eleventh film in the form of Kill Bill 3. Based on what we know, however, we wouldn’t recommend holding your breath.
