A few months back, Quentin Tarantino stated publicly that he will be doing Kill Bill 3. Shortly thereafter, Uma Thurman confirmed that she had already talked with Tarantino about starring once again as The Bride.
Now, Film 24 writes that Daryl Hannah has confirmed that the movie is a reality and that she will reprise her role as the villain Elle Driver. When last we left Elle in Kill Bill: Volume 2, she was blinded and left thrashing around the inside a trailer, with a black mamba snake no less. As Hannah points out, Elle ends up being the only villain on The Bride's hitlist who survives.
Think about it. There's always been a tradition of blind Samurais, and you never actually saw her expire in the other film.
It's anybody's guess as to what Tarantino has planned for the third installment. One theory posited by many fans is that Elle will end up mentoring the daughter of Viveca Fox's Vernita Green, whom The Bride kills early in Kill Bill: Volume 1. Or, it could be that Green's daughter fights The Bride's daughter, who was only four at the end of Kill Bill 2.
At this point, however, it's difficult to say how likely the project is to come to fruition. Apparently, 2014 is the target date, but Tarantino always has lots of ideas churning in his cinephiliac head, and it's never clear which ones will make it in front of the camera.
We'll let you know if we hear anymore news.
