I’m really surprised that we don’t have more female-driven films, not just action films. Pitch Perfect 2 just made a ton of money and Tomorrowland - starring Britt Robertson in the lead - just won Memorial Day weekend. So can we get more movies like this out there?
What she's thinking:
is there really not gonna be a Kill Bill Vol. 3? There's so much closure that needs to be had, first of all, Sophie Fatale and a lot of the crazy 88 are alive. They could try to get revenge. Nikkia, Vernita's daughter is now about 15-16(so is Bebe) and she deserves revenge on the bride for killing her mother. Is Bebe trained to be a fighter? Also lastly, Elle Driver was never seen dead. The last we saw, she was blind in a trailer bathroom with a black mamba, but we never saw her die. Ten years ago, Quentin said he would do the sequels ten years later. It's been 10 years and now he says he isn't, but there is so much potential for these storylines and I just really need something canon. I'm pretty sure he's considered making it an anime in the style of O-ren's origin story, and I think that could be amazing. Either way, I have to have hope that this story isn't over
