Tarantino 'planning Kill Bill 3'

Quentin Tarantino says he's already planning a third installment of Kill Bill.

Kill Bill - Vol 2 opens in US cinemas next week, but the director says he's thinking well ahead.

He told Entertainment Weekly: "Oh yeah, initially I was thinking this would be my 'Dollars' trilogy.

I was going to do a new one every 10 years. But I need at least 15 years before I do this again."

Tarantino says Uma Thurman, who plays an assassin bride in the first two films, will not be the star of the third.

He said: "
The star will be Vernita Green's (Vivica Fox's) daughter, Nikki (Ambrosia Kelley).

"I've already got the whole mythology: Sofie Fatale (Julie Dreyfus) will get all of Bill's money. She'll raise Nikki, who'll take on The Bride.

Nikki deserves her revenge every bit as much as The Bride deserved hers.

"I might even shoot a couple of scenes for it now so I can get the actresses while they are this age."
