Latest developments about "Kill Bill" vol. 3 indicate that it is to be titled "Kill Bill: The Whole Bloody Affair." This suggests that it would simply be a combination of the first two films – not a sequel but rather a full version. This has been given light by director Quentin Tarantino himself during a Dynamite Entertainment panel, where he was asked about the status of the upcoming Kill Bill movie.
"What's going on with that is originally back when Kill Bill was going to be one movie, I wrote an even longer anime sequence," the "Pulp Fiction" director stated. "So you see in the movie [O-Ren] kill her boss but then there was that long hair guy… The big sequence was her fighting that guy. I.G. [The Japanese Anime Studio] who did Ghost in the Shell said we can't do that and finish it in time for your thing. And [plus] you can't have a thirty-minute piece in your movie. I said – 'ok.'"
"It was my favorite part but it was the part you could drop. So we dropped it and then later when I.G. heard we were talking about doing Kill Bill: The Whole Bloody Affair — they still had the script so without even being commissioned, they just did it and paid for it themselves," he continued. more >>
