Bollywood filmmaker Anurag Kashyap, who recently underwent an angioplasty after complaining of mild chest pain will reportedly helm the Hindi remake of Quentin Tarantino’s high-octane actioner “Kill Bill”.
According to a report by Bollywood Hungama, actress Kriti Sanon will step into the shoes of Uma Thurman.
The first two parts, released back-to-back in 2003 and 2004, featured Uma Thurman as The Bride, who swears revenge on a team of assassins and their leader, Bill, after they try to kill her and her unborn child.
On a related note, speaking on "Andy Cohen Live" in 2019, Tarantino revealed that he has an idea for a threequel for "Kill Bill" and wants to explore it.
"I didn't just want to come up with some cockamamie adventure. (The character) doesn't deserve that. The Bride has fought long and hard. I have an idea now that could be interesting. I still wouldn't do it for a little bit. It would be at least three years from now. It is definitely in the cards," he said.
Meanwhile, Anurag has the film “Dobaaraa” in his pipeline. He had been working on the post-production of this film from home, before the surgery.
The film will stars Taapsee Pannu and Pavail Gulati in the lead role. The team had wrapped up the shooting of the sci-fi thriller in March earlier this year.
On the professional front, Kriti has a long line-up of films ahead. She has wrapped up shooting for the upcoming supernatural film "Bhediya", co-starring Varun Dhawan. The Amar Kaushik directorial is slated to release on April 14 next year.
She will be seen in "Mimi", which is based on surrogacy, and also star with Akshay Kumar in the action comedy "Bachchan Pandey", and with Tiger Shroff in the action drama "Ganapath".
Her upcoming roster also includes "Hum Do Hamare Do" with Rajkummar Rao, and "Adipurush" with Prabhas and Saif Ali Khan.
