Quentin Tarantino Discusses 10th Movie And Ideas For Kill Bill 3
Tarantino wants to make one more movie and then retire--he's now offered a tease about what to expect.
Filmmaker Quentin Tarantino has directed nine movies and has plans to make one more before he retires. He wants to go out with a bang rather than a whimper with his 10th film, and recently discussed his career and ideas for Kill Bill Vol. 3 on the Joe Rogan Experience podcast.
During the interview, Tarantino said 2019's Once Upon a Time in Hollywood was his big "epic" and that his next film will be more of an "epilogue" to his career.
"The weight was really on Once Upon a Time in Hollywood. That's kind of like my big epic. That's like my big wrap-up-the-career kind of epic," he explained. "And I think I did it. I don't know what the next story is going to be. I'm imagining it will be more epilogue-y. Like [Once Upon a Time in Hollywood] is the big one, and then whatever I end up doing for that last one...more of an epilogue, as you're wrapping up the career."
But what will the last movie be? Tarantino doesn't know yet. He said he has no idea what this movie will be, and he has no timeline for when he wants to make it.
Tarantino is hoping to write one more book, then produce a stage play, and then "we'll see" about his 10th movie.
The director said he might be convinced to make another "epic" as his last film if it's a third Kill Bill movie. He's been thinking about it and he has some ideas.
"The only one I can imagine where it would be another epic, where I would need to out-do everything is if I did a Kill Bill 3. I've thought of it," he said.
One of the ideas that Tarantino has for Kill Bill Vol. 3 would be to revisit the characters 20 years later and cast Uma Thurman again as the Bride and her real-life daughter Maya Hawke as B.B. "I think it's just revisiting the characters, 20 years later, just imagining the Bride and her daughter B.B. having 20 years of peace," he said. "And then that peace is shattered. The Bride and B.B. are on the run. The idea of being able to cast Uma and her daughter Maya would be f**king exciting."
Finally, Tarantino reiterated that he considered making a Reservoir Dogs remake with a new cast as his final film because he believes the material is timeless. However, he decided against this and is now looking to produce a Reservoir Dogs stage play instead. He also wants to write a novelization of Reservoir Dogs and produce a Hateful 8 stage play.
Also on the podcast, Tarantino had a message for critics of the Bruce Lee scene in Once Upon a Time in Hollywood: "Suck a d."
Regarding his forthcoming retirement, Tarantino said in a previous interview that he believes that "most directors have horrible last movies," and he doesn't want this to be true for himself.
"Usually their worst movies are their last movies," he said. "That's the case for most of the Golden Age directors that ended up making their last movies in the late '60s and the '70s, then that ended up being the case for most of the New Hollywood directors who made their last movies in the late '80s and the '90s. I mean, most directors' last films are f**king lousy."
