Quentin Tarantino Finally Gives Up On Kill Bill 3

Quentin Tarantino is notorious, more than just about any other director, for talking constantly about projects he's never going to make. He's holding out hope for a spinoff about the Vega Brothers. He's got 40 pages of an Inglourious Basterds prequel that he may make some day. And he's been talking for years about making a third installment of Kill Bill, and his actors have been backing him up on the plans-- at least, until Inglourious Basterds came down and quieted things down for a little while.

Now with Django Unchained coming out-- yes, another original story that he didn't talk up for years-- Tarantino is doing some Q&A's, and We Got This Covered caught up to ask about all those promises about Kill Bill Vol. 3. His answer was short, and potentially disappointing:

“I don’t know if there’s ever going to be a Kill Bill. Vol 3. We’ll see, probably not though.”

Sounds like QT has come around to the attitude most of us have had for years now. Not that I doubt Tarantino's ability to do pretty much whatever he wants if he puts his mind to it, but it's always seemed that Tarantino gets way more inspired by his original ideas, and is much more likely to pursue something wild and new to him-- like a Western set in the Antebellum South, for example-- than characters he's tackled onscreen already. Django Unchained is yet another completely original story from Tarantino, and I think after most people see it, they'll also want to see him tackle something equally as new. Kill Bill has its fans, but it's probably best to let that chapter be closed.
