Kill Bill: Volume 3 is a movie that Quentin Tarantino has been teasing for years, but has never confirmed if he'll make. However, he has given a hint of who he'd like to cast if he ever did get round to it.

Stranger Things star Maya Hawke is top of his list to play the daughter of The Bride – the character previously portrayed by Maya's actual mum Uma Thurman in the first two films.

Tarantino said having mother and daughter literally play mother and daughter "would be f**king exciting".

"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 shattered," Tarantino said in an interview on The Joe Rogan Experience podcast.

"And now the Bride and BB are on the run and just the idea of being able to cast Uma [Thurman] and cast her daughter Maya [Hawke] in the thing would be f**king exciting."

He went on to explain that there is definitely still a story to tell and characters to catch up with, so we know he's at least thought about making the movie.

He explained: "I mean, Elle Driver (Daryl Hannah) is still out there, Sophie Fatale (Julie Dreyfus) got her arms cut off, she's still out there. They all got Bill's money. Gogo (Chiaki Kuriyama) had a twin sister, her twin sister could show up."

Sounds like there's a storyline in there somewhere, right?

A couple of years ago, the director said he had dinner with Thurman and they shared ideas for a third movie, although he says he's got some other projects in the queue first.
