Quentin Tarantino verfolgt weiterhin den Plan, die beiden "Kill Bill"-Teile 2005 als einen Film im Kino zu präsentieren: In einem Interview der "USA Today" äusserte er sich optimistisch und sagte, dass ihm der grosse DVD-Erfolg von "Kill Bill Vol. 1" und "Kill Bill Vol. 2" den Weg geebnet habe, seinen Traum in absehbarer Zeit doch noch zu erfüllen...

Bei BadTaste.it gibt es ein Video-Interview mit Quentin Tarantino, der "Kill Bill: Volume 3" gerne in den nächsten Jahren realisieren würde... CS! ergänzt...
[...] He again says that he wants a 10 year break in between when the second one came out and when the third comes out, so that would be 2014. The 10 year time frame is because he wanted The Bride to have a break after everything she went through. [...]
SCI FI Wire meldet...
[...] When I'm through with this, I can actually finish the final Kill Bill: The Whole Bloody Affair," Tarantino told reporters Sunday in a group interview in Beverly Hills, Calif.
"I need to do one thing with it, though," Tarantino said. "I'm not going to monkey around with the movie itself, but we've actually done a whole new section for the anime as the last thing [we added]. I actually wrote a much longer script for the anime section during O-Ren's revenge chapter. Remember the guy with the long hair that kills her father? It's like, what happened to that dude? Well, I wrote it and it was the biggest, most elaborate thing I wrote - her taking him down."
Tarantino said this material wasn't a separate story, but something always intended for the film - until other narratives took over, anyway. "This was when I thought Kill Bill was going to be one movie," he revealed. "So already I thought a 20-minute anime scene may be not the wisest move. So we didn't have them do it, so they were relieved they didn't have to do it because it was so big. [But] I actually showed it to Harvey Weinstein; I had the whole script written out shot for shot what it would be, so [I said], 'Harvey, this literally would make it complete. This is everything I came up with and wrote when I wrote it.' So Production IG just did it, and I just need to work with them a little bit and go over it with them - and I'll do that once this is officially behind me." [...]
Two year ago Quentin Tarantino piqued the interest of film fans everywhere when he promised two new anime companion films to "Kill Bill," one supposedly about the origin of The Bride and the other about Bill himself.
We don’t know what’s happened to the story of The Bride, but the other animated film is going to blow you away, insisted star Uma Thurman.
"His anime stuff is strong," she smiled.
We say we don’t know what happened to the story of the Bride, by the way, because Thurman claims to have never recorded a voice-over for the anticipated project.
"It has nothing to do with me," she said. "It has to do with another character. You’ll have to see."
That screams Bill to us. But the best part? It looks as if we’ll get to "see" real soon, perhaps as part of an expanded DVD release, Thurman teased, indicating that the short will be part of a larger re-release for "Kill Bill."
"Right now he’s putting the two films together with an intermission with an added anime sequence he had already written," she said of the ongoing saga of Beatrix Kiddo. "So additional stories are in there, in animation." [...]
CS! berichtet über die norwegische "Kill Bill"-Parodie Kill Buljo (siehe auch YouTube.com)...
The Weinstein Company has bought the rights for the U.S., U.K. and Australia to a Norwegian low-budget parody of Quentin Tarantino's Kill Bill, which has become an unlikely international success.
Variety says the 1.3 million Norwegian kroner ($250,000) Kill Buljo, which screened at the American Film Market, has sold to more than 20 territories including Japan, Poland, Turkey, Germany, Thailand, the Benelux countries, France, Brazil, Israel, Romania, South Africa, Russia, the Baltic countries, Spain, Bulgaria and Portugal.
Distributors in several countries are opting for theatrical releases but the Weinstein territories are likely to be released straight to DVD.
Kill Buljo was co-written, co-produced and helmed by Tommy Wirkola and a group of friends for Yellow Bastard Productions, and shot in Finnmark, northern Norway.

Bei CS! gibt es Gerüchte zu "Kill Bill"-Sequels...
Quentin Tarantino will shoot two sequels to the "Kill Bill" movies in China, according to Crienglish.com.
The films executive producer, Bennett Walsh, said the third film will involve "the revenge of two killers whose arms and eyes were hacked by Uma Thurman in the first stories", the site quoted the money-man as saying. "The fourth instalment of the popular kung fu action films concerns a cycle of reprisals and daughters who avenge their mother's deaths".
Considering a) Quentin Tarantino takes about five years off between movies and, b) Quentin Tarantino has another movie to do before these two (if he in fact does plan to do them)... don’t hold your breath.
Bei SuicideGirls.com gibt es ein lesenswertes Interview mit David Carradine...
DRE: [...] Were you surprised that Bill and Bea didn’t get to have big drawn out fight at the end of Kill Bill 2?
DC: I think I might have been actually slightly responsible for that. In Quentin’s original script, there was no big, long, drawn out fight. Then Quentin visited [Kill Bill fight choreographer] Woo-ping [Yuen] in Australia where he was shooting something. Quentin got really excited about using all those techniques. Then before we even started shooting I said, "Look I don’t want to see a Woo-ping movie. I want to see a Quentin Tarantino movie. We don’t go to your movies for the action. We go for the crazy things that people say." Quentin decided to go back to more of his original concept and also in-between I think Quentin had seen Matrix II, which is loaded with that stuff. It’s also done by Woo-ping and Quentin hated the movie. I hated it too. I think almost everybody did.
DRE: Who didn’t hate it?
DC: Yeah. Quentin said "I think this shit is over." He basically said to me that he didn’t want me on wires. I had become a real expert at the wire. I was eager to do it just for the fun of it. But he said that he said he wanted people to really see that I was doing it. Even in that fight with Michael Jai White, which is not in the movie but is in the extras on the DVD, is quite a fight. But there are no special effects in it at all. In the whole movie, there’s very little of that wirework that transcends what you think a human body could do. [...]

Wie AICN meldet, wurde Tarantino auf der Comic-Con 2006 nach "Kill Bill"-Sequels gefragt...
[...] Tarantino said after he does GRINDHOUSE he has an idea for two KILL BILL anime prequels he wants to start going. One focuses on Bill's back story and it'll have Pai Mei, Esteban Vihaio and Hatori Hanzo, all of Bill's father figures. The other would be a prequel on The Bride. I'd assume on assignment as an assassin, but that's my speculation. [...]
Digital Spy meldet...
Quentin Tarantino plans to release a merged version of both parts of Kill Bill in cinemas.
"I want to cut the whole movie together like one big epic with an intermission in the middle like a 60s film," explained the iconic director. "It'll be coming out in theatres."
"I've been holding off because I've been working on it for so long that I just wanted a year off from Kill Bill and then I'll do the big supplementary DVD package."
He is set to start work early next year and get the final product in cinemas late next year.
MTV.com sprach mit Quentin Tarantino, u.a. über "Kill Bill 3"...
[...] What isn't speculative, however, is Tarantino's desire to someday make a third "Kill Bill" epic, this time following the story of the Bride's daughter, B.B. (actress Perla Haney-Jardine), when she becomes an adult and confronts the violence that surrounded her youth. "That would be the third one," Tarantino enthused. "I'd have to wait about 10 years. Uma's got to get 10 years older, the little girl has to grow up and everything. And then we'd do the next chapter in the 'Kill Bill' series." [...]
FilmFocus.co.uk sprach mit Quentin Tarantino, u.a. über die "Kill Bill"-Langfassung...
[...] Kill Bill: The Whole Bloody Affair is definitely getting a wide release," he told us, "actually, that'll probably be the first movie that Miramax, under their new company, will be releasing theatrically. It's the Japanese version, that's why I call it that, you know, it should probably come out in the next few months. It's going to be NC-17 in America. We couldn't do that when Disney owned the place but now Disney's the fuck outta there we can do anything we want! It's gonna be off the hook!" [...]
CS! sprach mit Uma Thurman, u.a. über "Kill Bill: Volume 3"...
[...] Miramax is also planning special editions of both "Kill Bill" volumes for later this year. "I don't know what I didn't contribute to or did, it has been a while since I have done anything additional, but you know it was a very long shoot and I was there every day. I don't know what is going on with their new DVD. I am not sure." Would she return to the role for a third movie? "I don't know if I would be in it or not, I am not sure. This whole legacy of [Quentin Tarantino]. I know what he's thinking of but I think he is probably going to do something else for a while.
She adds there are no current plans to work with Tarantino again, but that it's always possible.
[06.11.2004] Im Rahmen des Festivals für den internationalen Film AUDITION gibt es heute um 00:15 Uhr ein Screening der japanischen Version von "Kill Bill" - im AMBO Kino Stuttgart !!!
Director Quentin Tarantino says he's planning a kung-fu film with all the dialogue in Mandarin Chinese and out-of-sync English dubbing in homage to many such films in the past.
In an interview with Total Film magazine, Tarantino said he decided to do the kung-fu movie instead of Inglorious Bastards, the working title of his long-expected movie based on World War II.
"I enjoyed shooting all the Japanese stuff in 'Kill Bill' so much that this whole film will be entirely in Mandarin," he said. "If you're not up to watching it with subtitles, I really want to do a full-on dubbed version."
USA Today meldet...
[...] Tarantino's own martial-arts action saga, the two-parter Kill Bill, is proving strong on DVD. Kill Bill Vol. 2 has been the top-selling DVD since its release Aug. 10, and its success has reinvigorated sales of Kill Bill Vol. 1 and other Tarantino DVDs.
The movies were modest successes at the box office - Vol. 1 scored $70 million, Vol. 2, $66 million - and they are solid hits on home video. Kill Bill soundtracks also are selling well.
All that bodes well for Tarantino's dream to bring a full-length Kill Bill to theaters. A film that combines the separate movies could happen as soon as early next year.
"It's not just like slapping the two together," he says. "There are slight changes, and it has an intermission, like a '60s movie."
The subsequent ultimate Kill Bill DVD would have a new collection of extras, too, but, he says, "it won't make these two (current DVDs) obsolete. We have put everything we could on volumes 1 and 2, but I have all this cool stuff we have from over the course of a year and a half making (the films)." [...]

Quentin Tarantino told the Associated Press in Spain that he still plans to make Kill Bill Vol. 3, just not any time soon.
"I have plans, actually not right away, but like in fifteen years from now, I'll do a third version of this saga," the director said.
As he previously mentioned, Tarantino said part three would center on the girl named Nicky, daughter of Vernita Green, played by Vivica A. Fox in "Vol. 1". The Bride (Uma Thurman) tells Nicky in the first film if she grows up and wants to take revenge, that she would be waiting.
