[quote] Do you have any plans for more movies with the characters from Kill Bill?
Tarantino: In the writing of the film, since I’m creating my own mythology from the ground up, I had to figure out that mythology, I had to really figure out what’s going onâ€¦in the course of doing that I came up with all these cool stories and all these cool tales and these interesting things that would just bog everything down if I tried to get them across. So now that the mythology is set up, I’d like to explore it in a few different ways; like I have an idea about writing, like I did for the animation section in Vol. 1, is doing a Japanese anime feature about the origins of Bill. How Bill became Bill, you know, and deal with his three godfather’s, Esteban Vallejo, Hattori Honzo and Pei Mei.
And I’ve also thought of the idea of like any other little stories that I might want to tell about the Bride or any of the other Deadly Vipers or anything, I could do as a Frank Miller-style graphic novels or something. But I do have an idea that maybe 15 years from now, doing the last chapter in the story. But it wouldn’t star the Bride, it would star Nikki [Bell], Vernita’s daughter, and she would be the star of it and she would be 20-years-old and I already know exactly what happens to her, how she’s raised and everything that happens, the whole story. I might even shooting some time in the next two years, a couple of scenes while the actors that I’m working with are still young at this age and I can do a couple of scenes and stick them in a vault until I need them. It would be Nikki going out to get revenge on the Bride. Uma wouldn’t be the star; she’d kind of be the bad guy, because the little girl kind of deserves her revenge.
But one of the aspects about that though, and I mean this to my very core, is that I would want 15 years between the Bride having to have another venture because I love her. I want her to be happy, she’s so happy at the end of the movie, she’s got her daughter and everything and I want her to be able to put her sword up and not come up with machinations and contrivances to have it taken down. I think she deserves a happy life after all this time, but she picked a weird life though, so it can come back and bite her in the ass. I want for the next 15 years for her sword to be on the shelf and she lives a happy life.[/quote]
Sounds Good to me Hope he does the anime and comics sooner than 15 years! I for one think he should have Miller illustrate the comics if he decides to do them.
