Quentin Tarantino has always been outspoken pension planssaying he wants to retire after making 10 films or at the age of 60. With both milestones fast approaching, THR report claims that Tarantino is working on a script for Film Critic, his 10th and final film.
According to sources cited by THR, Film Critic will be set in Los Angeles in the 1970s and will feature a female lead. Some have speculated that the film may focus on famed film critic Pauline Kael, who was known for her scathing and witty reviews that often went against conventional wisdom. The project isn’t attached to a studio yet, but could start looking for a home as early as this week.
Since his Pulp Fiction debut in 1994, Tarantino has made nine films, counting Kill Bill Volumes 1 and 2 as one film. His films have brought him both critical acclaim and controversy, with Pulp Fiction and Django Unchained winning him the Academy Award for Best Screenplay.
Tarantino expressed a lot thoughts about your pension and the latest film in the past, saying that many directors’ recent films are “terrible” and that he wants to avoid the same fate for his own. The director called his latest film, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, his “epic” film, saying his 10th and final film will be more of an “epilogue” to the end of his career. So it’s no surprise that his next film is likely to be set in the world of Hollywood cinema once again.
Although Tarantino has placed strict limits on his film career, after his retirement Tarantino is still able to pursue other creative pursuits, showing an interest in writing plays and novels. In 2021, he released his first novel, the film adaptation of Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.
