Quentin Tarantino Remains Uncertain About 'Kill Bill 3'; Says Jonah Hill Isn't Replacing Sacha Baron Cohen In 'Django Unchained'

Devotees at San Diego Comic-Con 2012 were in for a rude awakening on Saturday morning. Despite fans camping out at 7 a.m. for an 11:30 a.m. Hall H presentation for Quentin Tarantino's upcoming slavery-drama-cum-revenge-thriller "Django Unchained," the lines for the panel were unprecedented and several thousand fans who thought they were early, were left out of luck.

Playlist correspondent Jeff Otto was one of the select few lucky enough to score a slot inside. During the 'Django' presentation, which just wrapped up in San Diego, Tarantino was asked by fans about the status of the long-gestating "Kill Bill 3." And perhaps not shockingly, Tarantino remained noncomittal about the movie in his response. "I always said I would wait ten years," Tarantino said, the ten-year anniversary of which lands in 2014. " 'Kill Bill 3' is a work in progress," is all he would allow. So file under maybe? The director did not elaborate in his answer.

As for "Django Unchained," Tarantino is well aware he's playing with political fire by being a Caucasian man making a revisionist-like story about slavery, but the filmmaker insists he did his homework. "It's unimaginable to think of the pain and suffering that went on in this country. ['Django'] can't be any more fucked up than it actually was," Tarantino said.

As for Jonah Hill who recently joined the cast? During the presentation it was revealed that Hill would not be replacing Sacha Baron Cohen in the film who had to drop out due to "Hugo" press obligations. Hill -- who was approached for the movie early on -- was originally vying for the role of Scotty Harmony, a young 20-something boy who loses ownership of Django’s (Jamie Foxx) slave wife Broomhilda (Kerry Washington) to the charming and evil Calvin Candie (Leonardo DiCaprio). Cohen eventually took the role before exiting the film, but Tarantino said that part in the original screenplay has been scrapped entirely. Instead, Hill will be playing a "Regulator," a pre Klu Klux Klansman who wrangles slaves. "It's one of the funniest things I've ever written," Tarantino said. 

Much more from the "Django Unchained" presentation at Comic-Con later today.
