Michelle Yeoh Lost k*ll Bill Role for Being Too Good for Uma Thurman to f*ght

"According to Everything Everywhere All At Once actor Michelle Yeoh, she didn't land a role in Quentin Tarantino's martial arts franchise k*ll Bill because she was too good at f*ghting.

Yeoh told Town & Country that she once asked Tarantino why she didn't make it into the series -- especially as the director had previously said her performance in Jackie Chan's Police Story 3 was one of his influences for k*ll Bill. "He's very smart," she explained. "He said, 'Who would believe that Uma Thurman could kick your a*s?'"

Despite not making it into k*ll Bill, Yeoh has seen a lot of success in the martial arts acting world since, the most recent example being A24's multiverse hit Everything Everywhere All At Once. But Yeoh wasn't immediately guaranteed the role as the film's protagonist. In fact, according to Everything Everywhere co-director Daniel Scheinert, she was originally going to play the star's wife. "At first we were like, 'Action movie, going to star a dude,'" he explained.

Yeoh has always been an advocate for female action stars -- something she had to help Jackie Chan himself see the merit in. She recalled that, while shooting the 1992 film Supercop, Chan had tried to talk her out of doing some of her own stunts. "I told him, 'You're a fine one to ask me to stop!'" she explained. "'You're always doing them.'"

Will There Be a Third k*ll Bill?

Kill Bill is a prime example of a female-led action franchise, one which might see a third installment in the near future. When asked in 2021 if he would consider making a third k*ll Bill, Tarantino said "Why not?" but then added, "But first, I want to make a comedy."

Some fans are even rallying around Spider-Man's Zendaya to appear in a new k*ll Bill film if it happens. Zendaya said she was "flattered" by the idea, before adding, "But, you know, it's just an idea. The internet kinda takes things and runs with it."

And just like Zendaya being in a new k*ll Bill might be a pipe dream, so might Tarantino returning to the franchise. In 2014, the director said he was planning to stop directing after ten feature films – a number he has since reached. "10 and done," he said, "leaving them wanting more – that sounds right."

Kill Bill: Volume 1 and Volume 2 are currently available to stream on HBO Max."

I remember him saying he wouldnt count k*ll Bill 3 as his 10th movie since it's a continuation.

Crazy thing is, she ain’t even a real martial artist, she’s a trained dancer, so she’s really good with choreography and very flexible.

And Zendaya playing as Vernita Green’s daughter in a 3rd k*ll Bill movie would be nuts. She as unlikely a female action star as Uma was so it might actually work in much the same way.

The third movie would need more than just that. It would be cool if Zendaya played Cottonmouth's daughter and got k*lled by the main character in the 1st act.

After k*ll Bill 2, is Uma Thurman even fu*king with Tarantino like that?

She’s a goat but QT was bullsh*tting her; Lucy Liu was a biggest star and better choice imo

Lucy was an aesthetic choice, I think she was the better looking of the two. Cause if was really going for the full martial arts look he would have went with Yeoh. Yeohs performance in CTHD is still one of my all time favourites. Ain't to many female characters that got that whoop a*s energy and I'm believing it, but she got it in that flick.

Shame they f...ed the sequel, the destiny sword could have been on par with CTHD if they had invested with a decent script and visuals.

Most kung-fu artists were originally. Most of the those Shaw Brothers actors and actresses were gymnasts or dancers.

Michelle Yeoh should've been the main actress, not no damn uma thurman but we all know she's the reason white folks came to buy the tickets. I have yet to see a white broad who has interest in martial arts...i'm sure a few exists but cmon now.

That' like having the last samurai with Tom Cruise as the main actor

Slapped because, if you bothered to watch that classic, which of course you nor anyone who says that dumbass sh*t did, you'd know that Cruise is NOT The Last Samurai. Ken Watanabe and his clan are.

'Who would believe that Uma Thurman could kick your a*s?'
is the right answer, even though a lot of the sh*t Uma did in that movie i had to suspend all disbelief to enjoy watching it
