Vivica A. Fox Wants Zendaya to Play Her Daughter in Third 'Kill Bill' Movie

Vivica A. Fox wants her Kill Bill character avenged!

During a new interview, the 55-year-old actress dished on the possibility of a third installment in the Kill Bill franchise and she wants Zendaya to star in the movie as her daughter.

Vivica played Vernita Green in Kill Bill: Vol. 1 back in 2003, who was brutally murdered by Uma Thurman‘s character The Bride.

For years director Quentin Tarantino has been hinting at a Kill Bill: Vol. 3, saying that the film would follow Vernita’s daughter Nikki on a journey to avenge her mother’s death.

“The star will be Vernita Green’s daughter, Nikki,” Quentin shared with Entertainment Weekly back in 2004. “I’ve already got the whole mythology: Sofie Fatale [Julie Dreyfus] will get all of Bill’s money. She’ll raise Nikki, who’ll take on the Bride. Nikki deserves her revenge every bit as much as the Bride deserved hers.”

Vivica has now started a campaign to get Quentin to cast the 23-year-old actress as the grown-up version of Nikki in the possible third movie. Ambrosia Kelley originally played young Nikki.

“So I went, Zendaya! How hot would that be? And that would probably green light this project,” Vivica told NME. “Her and Uma are both very tall, and it would just be kick-butt, and I love her.”

“Hopefully now we can put that out, like ‘Tarantino, cast Zendaya!’ And spark his interest to put it on the fast track,” Vivica added.

If you missed it, Zendaya quietly filmed an entire movie during quarantine!
