Maya Hawke will be portraying the younger version of Uma Thurman’s character from the two previous films and it has been announced Maya would be playing this role in the final installment to the Kill Bill!
“Kill Bill Vol. III will serve as both an epilogue that rounds up all those dangling threads,” Tarantino said, “and then also sets off with some unexpected directions that might take three or four movies before we get there.”
Quentin Tarantino about Maya Hawke
“I love Maya Hawke. I have to admit that when her name came up, even though she’s a little kid and it was kind of unbelievable for the part because they are usually all grown-ups, but what if… And then we wouldn’t be taking any chances with an unknown actress who might not work out.”
The director said he “wasn’t sure about Maya at first,” but changed his mind after seeing the results of some camera tests. The movie is set to go into production next year. Maya will play young Thurman in this film. Tarantino has also confirmed Pam Grier as well another female lead role in Kill Bill Vol. III! Stay tuned and subscribe!
Quentin Tarantino wants to cast Maya Hawke in “Kill Bill III”!
Quentin Tarantino has stated that he wants Maya Hawke for a role in his third installment of the Kill Bill series.
Maya may have the perfect skillset for Tarantino according to some industry experts as her mother is a famous director of Blue Velvet, The Elephant Man, Twin Peaks among other movies– which would make Maya more than qualified for any part that Quentin could come up with!
In this year alone Maya appeared in two blockbuster hits: Mission Impossible: Fallout Keanu Reeves’ John Wick: Chapter III in which Maya played a girl named Sofia.
It is unclear what Maya’s role would be in Kill Bill Vol. III, but fans are excited to see her on the big screen again!
Quentin Tarantino wants Maya Hawke to be in “Kill Bill Vol. III” which will give a younger edge for this movie and attract more viewers who enjoyed her past work with Quentin Tarantino. Maya’s age also makes it possible that she could be the next Uma Thurman, or Vivica A Fox in Kill Bill if he decides to continue.
This is why Kill Bill would most likely have an audience of 18-50-year-olds because Maya can relate to that age group as well making her perfect for this cast.”

Will “Kill Bill Vol. III” be worth watching?
Tarantino has a reputation; for not finishing his movies, as he left “Kill Bill Vol. II” unfinished. Because it was too long and didn’t have enough material to continue with the story for a third film. Maya Hawke’s star power will definitely help him; finish this movie; by attracting viewers; who enjoyed her in the past Tarantino films. Maya is also about 19 years old; which would give an edge to younger audiences who don’t want another older actress like Uma Thurman or Vivica A Fox return from previous installments of Kill Bill.”
