We finally have the first details on what will reportedly be Quentin Tarantino’s final movie.
According to a report in THR today, it will be titled The Movie Critic, and Tarantino has already written the script. He plans to direct the film in the fall.
Sources also tell THR that it will officially be his final movie, and that it will center on a woman in late ’70s Los Angeles. There isn’t currently a studio attached to fund and distribute but it could go out to buyers reportedly as early as this week.
IGN has reached out to Tarantino’s reps for comment. Chatter over what will be Tarantino’s final directorial project has run rampant for years now – however, there’s good reason to believe that this will finally be it.
The filmmaker behind movies like Pulp Fiction, Kill Bill, Inglourious Basterds, and Once Upon a Time in Hollywood has previously, repeatedly said that his tenth movie would be his last – and, although he’s already technically made ten films as of 2019, he considers Parts 1 and 2 of Kill Bill to be one movie. So, by Tarantino’s math, this would be his tenth film.
He re-affirmed that his next movie would be his last as recently as last year, telling CNN, “I’ve been doing it for a long time; I’ve been doing it for 30 years. And it’s time to wrap up the show.”
Tarantino made his directorial debut in 1992 with Reservoir Dogs, and would go on to become one of the most influential modern filmmakers. His most recent movie, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, was nominated for 10 Academy Awards and won two.
