“A banana ice cream on a stick”
Uma Thurman hasste “Kill Bill”-Outfit
The bride without a yellow sports suit? Hardly imaginable. But as Quentin Tarantino remembers, leading actress Uma Thurman in “Kill Bill” did not want to wear what was presented to her at first. The director also has a teaser for the continuation of the popular series.
In 2003 Uma Thurman slipped into the yellow suit of the vengeful bride for the first time. Quentin Tarantino has now revealed in an interview with “Cinema Blend” that the actress initially couldn’t make friends with her black and yellow “Kill Bill” outfit: “Uma hated the yellow tracksuit. She hated it. She doesn’t have it understood and said she looks like a popsicle – a banana popsicle. ”
The fact that the item of clothing paid tribute to a great film hero was initially lost. The actress had practically no idea who Bruce Lee was. “I had to show her ‘Bruce Lee – My Last Fight’ before she got it,” said Tarantino, referring to the look, adding: “She probably doesn’t even remember it, but she said at first: ‘You let yourself make me look like a clown! ‘”
Director Quentin Tarantino has indicated several times that there should be “Kill Bill: Vol. 3”. As early as 2004 he said in an interview with “Entertainment Weekly”: “The star will be Vernita Green’s daughter Nikki. I already have the whole mythology: Sofie Fatale will get all the money from Bill. She will raise Nikki who is the bride Nikki deserves her revenge as much as the bride deserves hers. ”
Continuation with Uma Thurman’s daughter is conceivable
In “Kill Bill: Vol. 1” Vivica A. Fox aka Vernita Green was killed by the bride in the opening scene. A potential third part is supposed to be about Green’s daughter, who wants to avenge the death of her mother. Fox could especially imagine multi-talented Zendaya in the daughter role. She said that in the summer of 2020 in an interview with “NME”.
In the interview podcast “The Joe Rogan Experience”, Tarantino brought up another name. Uma Thurman’s daughter Maya Hawke could play alongside her mother: “We would just see the characters again 20 years later and imagine that the bride and her daughter, Bebe, had their peace for 20 years. And then that peace will be broken” the director explained. After his tenth project, Tarantino plans to retire whatever film it may be. His film “Once Upon A Time in Hollywood …”, released in 2019, was already his ninth film.
