Is Tarantino Preparing Two "Kill Bill" Sequels?
Reports indicate that producer Bennett Walsh had some things to say about "Kill Bill 3" and "Kill Bill 4" while attending the Shanghai Film Festival ... but I wouldn't get too excited just yet.
Apparently the two story-lines are set and there's a chance that Quentin Tarantino "may" return to China to helm the flicks ... maybe. But allegedly part 3 will deal with those Crazy 88s (specifically "the revenge of two killers whose arms and eyes were hacked by Uma Thurman in the first stories") and Part 4 will focus on the daughters of Vernita Green and that crazy blond woman.
Then again, as any fan of QT knows, he usually takes a long time getting started ... plus he always seems to have three movies in pre-pre-production at the same time. Still, a few more "Kills" wouldn't be too awful. Maybe by 2012.
In other Tarantino news, another source is reporting that he'll be doing sort of a remake of the old Shaw Brothers kung-fu flicks: "The director himself has said he expects to produce abstractions of the storylines from "One-armed Swordsman" or "Dubei Dao" and "The 36th Chamber of Shaolin" or "Shaolin 36 Fang."
You'd never know that QT has only directed 4.85 movies in his career. (Yes, 4.85. I counted "Reservoir Dogs," "Pulp Fiction," "Jackie Brown," and "Kill Bill" as one movie apiece, "Grindhouse" as a half, "Four Rooms" as a quarter, and he got 10% credit for "Sin City.")
