While there has been talk about what the next film from director Quentin Tarantino may in fact be, we have learned very little about that very project. Well, now it appears as though actress Uma Thurman has come out and enlightened us all as to not only what we should expect from this new film but also what may come from a possible third film in the KILL BILL franchise.

In speaking to Hollywood Outbreak (via The Playlist), the actress stated that Tarantino is in fact ready to shoot a new script (something rumored to be the case a few weeks back) entitled A SOUTHERN, and “it’s really exciting. It’s another new story and a fresh piece of material that he is channeling at the moment.” She went on to say that a KILL BILL film “lives down the road,” whatever that may ultimately mean.

If you may not remember, A SOUTHERN is likely Tarantino’s long-talked about take on spaghetti Westerns, in the guise of a film looking at America’s history with slavery. Not “like big issue movies” according to the director, the film is his genre based take on spaghetti westerns, with slavery tossed in, so to say it sounds anything less than a Tarantino film, is absolute lunacy. 

Now, with regards to a third KILL BILL film, I don’t know if that will ultimately happen, and frankly, I don’t think it really needs to. It’s such a great two-parter, and now with THE WHOLE BLOODY AFFAIR, it’s in the full form Tarantino originally expected.

However, A SOUTHERN sounds absolutely amazing - here’s to hoping we get this thing sooner rather than later.
