Quentin Tarantino has the perfect actor in mind to play the Bride’s daughter if Kill Bill: Vol. 3 happens.
During his appearance this week on The Joe Rogan Experience, the director discussed a potential sequel to his blockbuster two-part action film.
“I think it’s just revisiting the characters 20 years later,” the Oscar winner said of the hypothetical film. “Just imagining the Bride and her daughter B.B. having 20 years of peace, and then that peace is shattered and then the Bride and B.B. are on the run. The idea of casting Uma Thurman and casting her daughter, Maya Hawke, and the thing would be fucking exciting. I mean, Elle Driver (Daryl Hannah) is still out there, Sophie Fatale (Julie Dreyfus) got her arms cut off, she’s still out there. They all got Bill’s money. Gogo (Chiaki Kuriyama) had a twin sister, her twin sister could show up.”
Recent comments from the director reveal that he wants to cast Uma Thurman’s actual daughter Maya Hawke as The Bride’s daughter BB, in a story that would see their 20 years of peace shattered and the pair go on the run.
“There are always rumours about that,” Maya told The Guardian. “Quentin is on his own darn schedule. He’ll do what he wants when he damn well wants. But I’ve known him my whole life and if he ever wanted to work with me again, of course I would love to.”
Tarantino has made it clear he’s going to retire after making his 10th film, which is widely assumed to mean he’s going to make just one more.
But a potential Kill Bill sequel could provide a loophole, if he should want one, that could give fans two more movies. As he made clear yet again during the Rogan interview, the director counts Kill Bill 1 and 2 as one film.
It would then follow that Vol. 3 could also be considered part of that same saga … which means it wouldn’t count as his separate final film.
