Quentin Tarantino has revealed that his next project will be in television.
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.
He has previously stated that his next movie will be his last, which is potentially why he is delaying that project to focus on TV.
According to Variety, 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. Indeed, he has been rumoured for a guest directing spot on the new series of Justified.
He revealed his plans at an event in New York on Wednesday evening 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”.
Tarantino hates current Hollywood cinema
Every one of Tarantino's features is filled with references and tributes to some of his favourite movies from the past as he has a particular love for films from the 1970s.
However, he believes that the 1950s, 1980s, and the current era, are the worst periods for film.
“Even though the ‘80s was the time that I probably saw more movies in my life than ever–at least as far as going out to the movies was concerned," he said on The Video Archives podcast.
"I do feel that ‘80s cinema is, along with the ‘50s, the worst era in Hollywood history. Matched only by now, matched only by the current era!”
He previously revealed his disdain for the emergence of superhero movies.
