Speaking with Andy Cohen earlier this week, Tarantino noted the serendipity of his Kill Bill: Volume 3-focused line of questioning and teased his plans for the next few years.
"Well, I just so happened to have dinner with Uma Thurman last night," the Once Upon a Time in Hollywood director said. "We were at a really cool Japanese restaurant . . . She was bragging about me and I was bragging about her and it was a lovely night."
And as for Thurman's the Bride returning to theaters, Tarantino said that's still several years away from happening, but at least it sounds like it will happen.
"I do have an idea of what I would do with it," he explained. "That was the whole thing was conquering that concept of exactly what's happened to the Bride and what do I want to do because I wouldn't want to just come up with some cockamamie adventure. She doesn't deserve that. You know, the Bride has fought long and hard but now I actually have an idea that could be interesting. I wouldn't do it for a little bit . . . It would be, like, at least three years from now or something like that but—look—it is definitely in the cards."
For now, however, it doesn't appear as if crafting another feature-length film is the foremost thing on the director's mind. Instead, a pair of projects he wrote shortly after completing the Hollywood script are next on the agenda.
"I wrote a play and then I wrote a five-episode TV series," he said. "So, to some degree or another, I've kinda written what I'm gonna do for the next three years and then after that I'll get around to what the next movie will be."
The timing could work out in Tarantino fans' favor, as 2023 will mark the 20th anniversary of the theatrical release of Kill Bill: Volume 1.
