Quentin Tarantino has officially shut down rumors of a Kill Bill trilogy, but the director has offered a hint that his next project will be some kind of western.
The Academy Award-winning director said he has shut the door on the martial arts series staring Uma Thurman as a former assassin who is seeking revenge on her former employer and lover. There had been a build up that Tarantino was ready to revive the series, but he has now closed the door on it.
"There are no genres I absolutely want to do any more, like ticking boxes - 'This, done.' I don't think about Kill Bill 3 that much as we already visited them," Tarantino told Ireland's Independent newspaper.
Instead, Quentin Tarantino hinted that he may try his hand at an equally violent genre.
"If there was something I would like to work on again, it would be Honshu's movies, maybe. Or a horror movie, perhaps."
"I can't talk that much about it, but I will say one thing. I haven't told anyone about this publicly, but I will say the genre: It's a western," Tarantino said.
He added, "It's not a Django sequel, but it's another western. I had so much fun doing Django, and I love westerns so much that after I taught myself how to make one, it's like, 'OK, now let me make another one now that I know what I'm doing.'"
If his new movie can do as well as Django Unchained, Quentin Tarantino will be doing well. The movie made $425 million at the box office, the director's highest grossing movie yet, and landed Tarantino his second Academy Award for Best Original Screenplay. Tarantino's other Oscar for Best Original Screenplay came in 1995 for Pulp Fiction.
