Quentin Tarantino has also expressed a desire to make a sequel to Kill Bill which will star Maya Hawke in the role of the Bride’s daughter, while Thurman reprises the role of the Bride. Tarantino says that such a film would follow the Bride and her daughter after 20 years or so. After spending 2 decades in peace the pair would be attacked again. Tarantino says the idea of such a project is “exciting,” to him.
Maya is also set to appear alongside Ethan Hawke in the upcoming romantic comedy film titled Revolver. The film will be set in the year 1966 and Ethan and Maya will be appearing in father-daughter roles in the film. The film doesn’t have a release date decided for now.
