Unfortunately for fans of the original Kill Bill films, Quentin Tarantino has officially shut down the rumors that a third film would be made. There has been speculation about a third film ever since the second one finished, and he has been continually teasing about the idea in order to get his fans excited.

During an interview in 2010 after fans had seen a third film in the series yet, he said that there would be a third film 10 years after Kill Bill Vol. 2, and we were not there yet.

As this year marks the 10th anniversary of Kill Bill Vol. 1, we would expect some news from the director about what is to come, and unfortunately Quentin Tarantino has nothing but bad news for Kill Bill fans.

Tarantino shot down any ideas of a hopeful sequel when saying “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.”

Quentin Tarantino is also one of the directors who is rooted in the tradition of filming with film, and the transition to digital has even made him reconsider his career, saying that he might retire soon.


Anyone who is familiar with Tarantino’s style or the type of directors that he likes to emulate will know that he is not in favor of the recent switch to digital, and where the future of appears to be heading. However, the question remains to be, how long will he keep on working and keeping his fans happy?

Kill Bill Vol. 1 was released in 2003, while the second film in the franchise was released the following year. The films chronicled a revenge story that focused on Beatrix Kiddo, a woman who was betrayed by Bill and had her wedding party murdered, causing her to take on everyone who was involved with the act.

At the age of 50, Quentin Tarantino is happy with the way that his career of more than 20 years has gone, and while he has no desire to work on a third Kill Bill film, he may want to rework Japanese films, or try out a horror movie. He has previously worked in the horror genre with From Dusk Till Dawn, along with Robert Rodriguez, who directed the film in 1996.

In addition to Kill Bill, he has had great success as an independent filmmaker, gaining popularity with a bit of a niche audience, and while he has never won the Best Director Oscar, he has won twice for Best Screenplay for his films Pulp Fiction and Django Unchained. He was also nominated for his screenplay for Inglorious Basterds.

Despite the fact that Kill Bill fans will not see another film in the epic franchise, Quentin Tarantino did tease at a new film that he has coming out on the Tonight Show With Jay Leno. He says it will be a western, although it will not be a sequel to his 2012 hit, Django Unchanined.

    How do you make a Kill Bill 3 when Bill was killed in the 2nd movie?

    • jack

      It’s not about killing Bill, but just a continuation of that story. In the past he mentioned that the part where Beatrix tells the little black girl that if she should feel vengeful when she grows up to come find her. So I think it would’ve been Kill Beatrix.

    In KB 2, The Bride (Uma Thurman) kills Vernita Green in front of Green’s daughter, Nikki. TB tells Nikkie that VG had it coming but says that Nikki now has a grudge against TB and expects Nikki to come after TB when Nikki grows up.

    Tarantino said at the time that said revenge would be the core of KB 3.

      She told Vivica Fox daughter to come and see her when she was older and Daryl Hannah was not dead she only plucked out her other eyeball.

    I am happy with this decision. Don’t get me wrong I LOVED the Kill Bill films but when someone is as talented as Tarantino; with so many ideas and characters and stories he writes there is no need to rehash the same thing over and over again. I look forward to what he will bring us next.

    Fear not, people; this article’s hogwash. There haven’t been ‘rumors’ or ‘speculation’ about ‘Vol. 3′; Quentin’s confirmed on more than one occasion that he’s doing a third volume, and that it will take place – and be filmed – fifteen years after the first two, not ten, and that he’s had the story entirely worked out for some time. He’s just giving Beatrix and her daughter, as he says, their ‘fifteen years of happiness’ the Bride earned.

    Also, in the event that Tobias Roth is an actual person, he might do well to take a closer look at his second paragraph, aside from its factual error.
