In the movie industry, whether it’s an actor, director or whomever, they never tend to put a numbered brake on their career. Quentin Tarantino is no ordinary writer/director. For years he always said that he’d either retire by 60 or once he’d directed 10 films. His 60th is coming up, this week the first details have surfaced regarding Quentin Tarantino’s final film, The Movie Critic.

As first reported by The Hollywood Reporter, very few details are currently known about his tenth film – we’re counting Kill Bill 1 & 2 together. The creator of iconic movies like Reservoir Dogs, Pulp Fiction and most recently Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, Tarantino has written the script and plans to begin production later this year.

Currently, The Movie Critic doesn’t have a studio attached to it, with Tarantino looking for buyers soon. Expectations are that it could go to Sony, simply because the studio distributed 2019’s Once Upon a Time in Hollywood. Additionally, the director has a good relationship with Sony’s Tom Rothman, the Hollywood Reporter notes.

The Movie Critic narrative

Regarding The Movie Critic’s storyline, sources say it’ll be set in 1970s Los Angeles and feature a female lead. At present, the best guess is that it’ll centre around movie critic Pauline Kael. She was not only an influential film critic but an essayist and novelist. Kael briefly worked for Paramount during the late 70s and Tarantino is known to deeply respect her work. Adding further credence to the idea.

If The Movie Critic is to be Quentin Tarantino’s final film, he’ll have no shortage of stars wishing to work on the project. He’s previously worked with Leonardo DiCaprio and Brad Pitt a couple of times – including his last film – so he may want some new faces. However, he has frequently collaborated with Samuel L. Jackson, Christoph Waltz; Uma Thurman, Kurt Russel; Tim Roth, Michael Madsen and others. So expect some familiar faces to make an appearance.

It could be a while before The Movie Critic graces any theatres. So why not take a look at the movies Quentin Tarantino loves and hates?
