Is Kill Bill Volume 3 ever coming down the pipeline? Don’t count on it. Although Quentin Tarantino‘s been floating the possibility for a long time, he seems far less enthusiastic about the project these days. The news shouldn’t come as too much of a shocker. Tarantino’s notorious for talking up projects that never get made, and there’s been little progress on Kill Bill 3 over the past several years. Hit the jump to read his words.

Tarantino Promises Kill Bill 3

kill-bill-1

Oh, boy. Here we go again. A year and a half ago seeing Quentin Tarantino proclaim his intention to make a film wouldn’t have meant much. But then came his appearance on a French talk show stage during Cannes ’08, where he promised to be back a year later with Inglourious Basterds. We all laughed, knowing that he’d been talking about that movie for a decade. Then he actually followed through, and did so with a great film that has become his biggest hit. So now, when Tarantino tells an Italian talk show “the Bride will fight again,” I suppose we have to take him more seriously. Read More »

Let’s go to the tape from Cannes! Shortly after a giggly French interviewer hands him a video camera and requests to “directed,” Quentin Tarantino is asked what his next film will be. Will it be Kill Bill 3? Kill Bill 4 (those silly Frenchies!) No, he says, it will be Inglorious Bastards…coming to Cannes in 2009?!?

Oh, yeah, no. The next movie I’m doing is my WWII movie Inglorious Bastards. I actually just finished the first draft of the script and when I go home I’ll be finishing it up…and if all goes well [pregnant pause] I will be here 2009 at Cannes with my war film INGLORIOUS BASTARDS!!! [applause].”

So, yeah, this is an official announcement of sorts from QT, not a misquote. He’s being translated, but you can hear his words verbatim underneath. Now, is it humanly possible to make an epic WWII movie without an official cast from a script that still needs polishing, and, um, without all that mandatory WWII stuff and deliver it by this time next year? [crickets]

But over on Twitter, the consensus is “asshat.” Peter even calls the man a “compulsive liar.” But, um, dudes and ladies, Quentin Tarantino is writing/directing an R-rated war film that will kick your our asses and it finally sounds like he’s revved up, if obeying an alien calendar. If you’re going to keep him in your mental Gimp box, at least throw some confetti on top. I’m looking forward to it, and by “it” I mean Chinese Democracy.

Discuss: How pumped are you for Inglorious Bastards in 2012?
