Over the last few years Quentin Tarantino has repeatedly teased his interest in making a third installment to his beloved Kill Bill films.

At the end of last year, he even admitted that he currently has an idea that “could be interesting.”

Vivica A Fox, who played Vernita Green in the first two Kill Bill films, doesn’t yet have an update on Tarantino’s progress, telling NME, “I haven’t got any official word.”

Fox thinks she knows the reason for the delay, though. “I had a feeling that hopefully [Tarantino] was waiting on [the actress who plays] my daughter to grow up a little bit.”

However, Fox understands that Ambrosia Kelley, who played her daughter in the first film, might not have the star power required for the potential follow-up, which is likely to see her avenging Vernita’s death at the hands of Uma Thurman’s Beatrix Kiddo.

Luckily, Fox has her own suggestion for who could play her daughter, if a replacement is needed.

Zendaya.

“How hot would that be? And that would probably green light this project. Because her and Uma are both very tall, and it would just be kick-butt ,and I love her.”

“Hopefully now we can put that out, like ‘Tarantino, cast Zendaya!’ And spark his interest to put it on the fast track. Wouldn’t it be amazing?”

Of course, Fox expects her and Thurman to return their roles, too, even though Vernita died in the first Kill Bill film.

“We’d come back and reprise our roles. I’d get on the phone with my agent immediately, making sure that I could be a part of it.”

“Tarantino has a great way of figuring out how to bring a character back even if they died, in a flashback or something. People have been waiting, and I’m in the waiting line too!”
