Quentin Tarantino has revealed that he would like to play Uma Thurman’s daughter, Maya Hawke, in a potential third Kill Bill film.
The 58-year-old filmmaker appeared on Tuesday’s episode of The Joe Rogan Experience and spoke about his ideas for a third feature in the highly stylized action series.
The Once Upon A Time In Hollywood director is currently considering ending his career after completing production on his upcoming tenth film and is currently considering potential projects to undertake.

Tarantino initially shared his ideas with the Podcast Powerhouse regarding the potential setup of the project, which would take place after Kill Bill Volume 2 of 2004.
“I think it’s just revisiting the characters twenty years later and just imagining the bride and her daughter, BB, having 20 years of peace and then that peace is broken,” he remarked.
The filmmaker went on to note that the idea of having the 22-year-old actress, who he worked with on Once Upon A Time In Hollywood, to work with her mother to work with was particularly exciting for him.
He continued: ‘And now The Bride and BB are on the run and the idea of being able to launch Uma [Thurman] and throws her daughter Maya [Hawke] in the thing would be fucking exciting.

The Oscar-winning director then gave Rogan a few more plot details regarding the direction of the feature film and teased the return of several former characters.
“Elle Driver is still there, Sophie Fatale had her arm cut off, but she is still there. They all have Bill’s money. In fact, Gogo had a twin sister Shiaki so his twin sister could introduce himself, ”he said.
Tarantino publicly teased Kill Bill Volume 3 in the years following the release of the second feature, although he chose to work on other projects.
Plot details on the feature remain speculative, although it has discussed the return of Vernita Green’s daughter, played by Vivica A. Fox, who was killed in the first feature film.

The actress spoke about her choice for the role during an interview with Express and said that her ideal choice was qualified to take on the role for a very specific reason.
She said, “I think they should go after the girl who did it, Ambrosia Kelley… If not, if I could have the girl of my dreams? Zendaya. She’s tall, she has those long legs; she would kick **! “
Development of the potential feature film has been hampered for nearly two decades by a controversy over the implication of the lead role of Kill Bill, 51, in a car crash during production of the second film.
The artist had to drive a vehicle for a specific scene and felt uncomfortable doing so before the director assured her that on-set safety protocols would keep her safe during filming.

Extended development: Work on a potential third Kill Bill feature has been hampered in recent years due to controversy over a destructive car crash involving Thurman that occurred during production
However, Thurman was seriously injured when her car hit a tree and eventually suffered several injuries, including concussion and knee damage.
The entire incident was filmed, and when the actress requested the footage, she claims that she was informed by Miramax that it would only be given to her if she waived her rights to pursue claims related to the accident, which that she refused.
The Pulp Fiction actress and Tarantino remained on bad terms for years and did not reconcile until the company released the footage following multiple sexual abuse charges against Harvey Weinstein.

During an interview with Deadline in 2018, the filmmaker opened up about the events surrounding the crash and said the incident still made him feel ashamed of him almost twenty years after it happened.
“I told him it would be safe. And it was not. I was wrong. I didn’t force her into the car. She got down to it because she trusted me. And she believed me… it’s one of the biggest regrets of my life, ”he noted.
The director of Reservoir Dogs also explained his feelings and noted that the crash and its aftermath had added an inconvenience to two of his most successful projects.
“We have held hands on this film throughout its march. We did it side by side and one of the things that me and Uma lament is that it tarnishes the legacy of Kill Bill, ” Tarantino said.
