Quentin Tarantino's two-part festival of swords and slaughter Kill Bill could potentially spawn a third movie, the director has said.

Speaking around the release of his latest film, Once Upon A Time In Hollywood, the auteur said that he's even been in discussion about it with his star Uma Thurman.

And not only that, it was only the other day.

He told the Happy Sad Confused podcast: “Me and Uma have talked about it recently, frankly, to tell you the truth.

“I have thought about it a little further. We were talking about it literally last week.

“If any of my movies were going to spring from my other movies, it would be a third Kill Bill.”

This is not the first time he's proffered a possible third instalment of his revenge saga, in which Thurman played The Bride, a woman scorned and then buried who embarks on a murderous spree to destroy her tormentors.

He's said back in 2004 that he might make a third film around the daughter of Vivica A. Fox's Vernita Green, Nikki, who witnesses The Bride killing her mother.

He told Entertainment Weekly: “Oh yeah, initially I was thinking this would be my ‘Dollars Trilogy’. I was going to do a new one every ten years. But I need at least fifteen years before I do this again.

“I’ve already got the whole mythology: Sofie Fatale will get all of Bill’s money. She’ll raise Nikki, who’ll take on The Bride. Nikki deserves her revenge every bit as much as The Bride deserved hers. I might even shoot a couple of scenes for it now so I can get the actresses while they’re this age.”

But equally, he told IGN in 2012 that he would 'probably not' revisit the films.

However, he will be looking for a new project after the star-studded Once Upon A Time In Hollywood hits screens.

This will be his ninth movie, and he's more or less said that he'll be calling it a day after making 10 movies.

There's a possibility that the planned Star Trek movie he's written could be his last project, but sure a third chapter to the Kill Bill series would be far more appropriate.

Starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Brad Pitt, Margot Robbie, Timothy Olyphant, Dakota Fanning, Bruce Dern, and Al Pacino, Once Upon A Time In Hollywood is out across the UK on August 14.
