Vivica A. Fox has opened up about Kill Bill: Vol. 3 and confirmed she’s ready to reprise her role as Vernita Green in the possible threequel.
While it’s been 16 years since Quentin Tarantino’s Kill Bill: Vol. 2 seemingly rounded off the story of Uma Thurman’s Bride, Fox told The Hollywood Reporter she “can’t wait” for a third movie. “I think they’re waiting for [Vernita’s] daughter to grow up,” said Fox. “So, the latest I’ve heard is that [Quentin] and Uma [Thurman] have been talking, and I’d love for them to figure it out. Quentin is great with flashbacks and figuring out some kind of way to make his characters alive again in a film. So, I’m really hoping that Vernita Green gets her revenge.”
Fox was part of both Kill Bill movies as one of the Deadly Viper Assassination Squad and was the first to be killed off on-screen. Despite her death in Kill Bill: Vol. 1‘s bloody opening, Fox appeared in the sequel via flashback and wants to do the same if Vol. 3 becomes a reality. In the first movie, Vernita’s daughter, Nikki, witnessed her mother’s murder, which prompted Beatrix Kiddo to offer her a chance to seek vengeance when she grew up.
Alongside the idea of Nikki taking vengeance on the Bride, Tarantino said Julie Dreyfus’s Sofie Fatale would’ve inherited Bill’s money and trained Nikki as an assassin. Added to this, there’s the question mark hanging over the fate of Daryl Hannah’s Elle Driver when the Bride left her for dead in Vol. 2. Tarantino wanted to wait at least 10 years to let actor Ambrosia Kelley grow up, however, 2014 came and went with no movement on Kill Bill: Vol. 3. Ronda Rousey once said she’d love to play an older version of Beatrix’s daughter and Hannah teased her potential return, but now, Tarantino can add Fox to the list of stars interested in a trilogy.
Tarantino’s two Kill Bill movies grossed over $333 million at the box office and received rave reviews. The director previously mulled over the idea of a third movie and said he’d imagined Kill Bill as his very own “Dollars Trilogy.” In 2012, Tarantino said Vol. 3 “probably” wouldn’t happen but confirmed he’d discussed the idea again with Thurman in July 2019. Tarantino has repeatedly claimed he’s only going to direct 10 movies, and with Once Upon a Time in Hollywood being classed as his ninth, time could be running out for Kill Bill: Vol. 3.
Vivica A. Fox has given a hopeful update on Kill Bill Vol. 3 and claims Quentin Tarantino has reignited talks with Uma Thurman about a third movie.
