When there is news of a new Quentin Tarantino movie, the showbiz world comes to a complete standstill. He is one of the world’s most renowned directors and his work has truly gone down in history.
But now it seems his reign has come to an end, as it has been reported he’s working on his final film.
Now, as we all know, Quentin Tarantino is one of a kind. The fifty-nine-year-old is known for directing some of the most critically-acclaimed movies of all time.
He started young, and worked as an independent filmmaker before later releasing the hit movie Reservoir Dogs, which was later dubbed as the “greatest independent film of all time.”
His portfolio is epic. It includes the likes of Pulp Fiction (1994), From Dusk till Dawn (1996), Inglourious Basterds (2009), and Django Unchained (2012).
But Kill Bill has to be one of his most famous pieces of work. Kill Bill: Vol. 1 (2003) follows the life of a former assassin (The Bride), who is played by Uma Thurman after she wakes up from a 4-year-long coma.
She has a lot of unfinished business to deal with. Thurman goes on to hunt down and assassinate the team of assassins who tried to kill her working under the boss (and her former lover) Bill, many years ago.
Kill Bill is considered a “revenge flick,” And Tarantino made sure to involve many elements of Kung Fu films, Japanese martial arts, spaghetti westerns, and Italian horror — all of which inspired him when he wrote and directed the movie.
Kill Bill: Vol. 2 came a year later in 2004. In the movie, Thurman’s character is still on the hunt for Bill, and she unveils many secrets about her past life along the way.
Both Kill Bill volumes received floods of praise, and they are both 2 of the most timeless movies of all time. However, Tarantino has gone on to release many more movies and screenplays since.
And now it has been revealed that the filmmaker is working on what is said to be his last film, per The Hollywood Reporter.
The director has always claimed that he only had so many movies left in him; he once stated that he either wanted to create 10 movies or retire by the time he was 60. The writer-director will be 60 later this month, and has produced nine films, counting Kill Bill Vol 1 and 2 as just one movie.
The script that Tarantino authored and is preparing to film this autumn is called The Movie Critic, according to insiders.
The details are being kept under wraps, but sources have let slip that the movie stars a female protagonist and is set in late 1970s Los Angeles.
One of the most important film reviewers of all time, Pauline Kael, has been mentioned as a possible inspiration for the plot. In addition to being a critic, Kael also wrote essays and novels before passing away in 2001.
After hearing the news, fans have shared their thoughts online, with one writing: “I’d love to see him make a 90 minute scaled down masterpiece like Reservoir Dogs/Death Proof again. I’m not against long dialogue scenes at all, he’s a gift to good actors, but something succinct and dynamic is needed.”
While another commented: “I’ll be watching ! has Great Scripts!”
