Filmmaker announces plans for third installment

MORELIA, Mexico — Quentin Tarantino confirmed he will be making the third installment of the “Kill Bill” series Saturday at the Morelia Film Festival.

There to promote “Inglourious Basterds” — the festival opener — the filmmaker said he wanted to give Uma Thurman’s central character and her daughter Beebe 10 years of peace before the next bloody installment, which would push the project to 2014.

In a conference alongside “Basterds” star Eli Roth, Tarantino said that there would be one film in between, saying he was “wide open” to his next project. Tarantino added that he would like to do a “re-imagining” of a number of genres including a Western or a 1920s to ’30s “Pretty Boy Floyd” type gangster movie.

Fest closes Oct. 11.
