KILL BILL 3 Not Happening Afterall?

WeGotThisCovered asked about the status of Kill Bill 3 to Quentin Tarantino who didn't give the impression it's actually going to happen. His response sounds a bit troublesome for Kill Bill fans expecting a final installment. Yet for Tarantino fans we know to expect this from him. He had previously tried to make a Vega Brothers (Pulp Fiction/Reservoir Dogs spin-off) film which never happened. There was even talk of an Inglorious Basterds sequel/prequel before Django was chosen as the next film. This could mean that Quentin is going to focus on other ideas he's been trying to put together instead of making something he's already done.

“I don’t know if there’s ever going to be a Kill Bill. Vol 3. We’ll see, probably not though.”

He's been talking up his 30's era gangster film recently and could very well be next for him. Tarantino has previously stated he wants to direct 10 films then retire. This could mean that he's going to axe sequels if a project captures his interest. A similar way how Django Unchained ended up becoming his follow up to Inglorious Basterds. I wouldn't be shocked to see him choose his last two-three (depending if Kill Bill 1-2 is considered one film) projects more carefully if they're going to be this successful commercially and critically. Quentin being more posed to earn awards for original material rather than rehashing with sequels. He's also talked up making a traditional western and I would assume he'd also want to make a samurai film at some point too.
