I will admit that the prediction that follows is based more on my speculation, hopes and knowledge of Quentin Tarentino than it is in fact. The speculation that I pose is one that many have thought and that I have thought since the very beginning of the first installment of the Kill Bill films. Recently, Tarentino has announced that he will in fact being adding a third volume to his spectacular Kill Bill duo. I am a huge Tarentino fan (a further blog will prove just how much) so this news is some of the best I’ve gotten about movies in quite some time. Upon hearing this news, thousands of different questions popped into my head but after a moment, the most pressing surfaced. What was the plot of this third film going to be? The end of Vol. 2 left the story and the Bride’s hunt pretty much wrapped up. It didn’t take me long to come up with a theory that not only could be true, but a theory that I would like to be true. As I stated before, my theory hinges on Kill Bill Vol. 1 and specifically on a single scene in the film. If you have not seen the film, following is a mini spoiler. In one of the opening scenes, The Bride (Uma Thurman) is pitted against the second target on her revenge list, Vernita Green (Vivica A. Fox). After a great fight, The Bride ends up defeating Vernita and kills her in front of her young daughter. As the Bride wipes Green’s blood off of her knife, she looks at the woman’s daughter and says “It was not my intention to do this in front of you. For that I’m sorry. But you can take my word for it, your mother had it coming. When you grow up, if you still feel raw about it, I’ll be waiting.” Now, not only is this a great line, but it is quite a specific one. When I first heard it, I had high hopes that it was actually a hint towards a future project and now, with the release date of Volume 3 set eleven years in the future, logistically that hint could become a reality. The script says that Green’s daughter is 4 years old, though the actress looked a little older, which means when the film comes out the actress will be 15 years old or a little older. That is certainly old enough for Tarentino, the master of character creation, to create a wickedly vengeful, teenage, motherless daughter. Though no other proof points directly to this theory, it is something that would pop straight out of the mind of Tarentino. It is my prediction and my hope that this story will at least be an element in the plot of Volume 3, but only time will tell.
