Quentin Tarantino's final movie before retirement confirmed
Quentin Tarantino has already confirmed that his 10th movie will be his last as a writer and director, and now we know exactly what it is.
The popular filmmaker has directed nine movies so far - Reservoir Dogs, Pulp Fiction, Jackie Brown, Kill Bill: Volume 1 & Kill Bill: Volume 2, Death Proof, Inglorious Basterds, Django Unchained, The Hateful Eight and Once Upon A Time in Hollywood.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, his 10th and final movie will be titled The Movie Critic.
Extensive details are being kept under wraps for now, but what is known is that it will take place in the 1970s and have a female lead.
Tarantino has already written the script and filming could start as early as this year.
On retirement, Tarantino previously told Playboy:
“I want to stop at a certain point. Directors don’t get better as they get older. Usually, the worst films in their filmography are those last four at the end. I am all about my filmography, and one bad film f***s up three good ones.
"I don’t want that bad, out-of-touch comedy in my filmography, the movie that makes people think, ‘Oh man, he still thinks it’s 20 years ago.’
"When directors get out-of-date, it’s not pretty.”
Tarantino to move into television
The Pulp Fiction director may be retiring from movies soon, but that doesn't mean he won't work in television.
Variety previously reported that Tarantino will create and write an eight-part series for broadcast over the next year. Plot details, and details such as network, genre and cast, are very thin on the ground currently.
It won't be the first time that Tarantino has worked in television, either, as he directed two episodes of CSI in 2005.
He revealed his plans at an event in New York which was to promote his new book, Cinema Speculation.
Following the release of Once Upon A Time in Hollywood, Tarantino signed a two-book deal with publisher Harper Collins, with the first release coming as an extended narration of that film starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Brad Pitt and Margot Robbie.
The second release, Cinema Speculation, is described as a “rich mix of essays, reviews, personal writing, and tantalizing ‘what if’s.'”
It is specifically linked to cinema in the 1970s and concerns “film criticism, film theory, a feat of reporting, and wonderful personal history”.
