Is Tarantino Preparing Two "Kill Bill" Sequels?

Well, according to one source he sure seems to be … maybe.

Reports indicate that producer Bennett Walsh had some things to say about "Kill Bill 3" and "Kill Bill 4" while attending the Shanghai Film Festival … but I wouldn’t get too excited just yet.

Apparently the two story-lines are set and there’s a chance that Quentin Tarantino "may" return to China to helm the flicks … maybe. But allegedly part 3 will deal with those Crazy 88s (specifically "the revenge of two killers whose arms and eyes were hacked by Uma Thurman in the first stories") and Part 4 will focus on the daughters of Vernita Green and that crazy blond woman.

Then again, as any fan of QT knows, he usually takes a long time getting started … plus he always seems to have three movies in pre-pre-production at the same time. Still, a few more "Kills" wouldn’t be too awful. Maybe by 2012.

In other Tarantino news, another source is reporting that he’ll be doing sort of a remake of the old Shaw Brothers kung-fu flicks: "The director himself has said he expects to produce abstractions of the storylines from "One-armed Swordsman" or "Dubei Dao" and "The 36th Chamber of Shaolin" or "Shaolin 36 Fang."

You’d never know that QT has only directed 4.85 movies in his career. (Yes, 4.85. I counted "Reservoir Dogs," "Pulp Fiction," "Jackie Brown," and "Kill Bill" as one movie apiece, "Grindhouse" as a half, "Four Rooms" as a quarter, and he got 10% credit for "Sin City.")
