Quentin Tarantino returns for the last time! The producer behind some of the most memorable movies of the past three decades, Pulp Fiction and Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, comes with his film, which sources say has been announced as the last.

Tarantino is writing the production, which is said to be called “The Movie Critic,” and is set to direct this fall. Details are kept in a briefcase, but sources say the story takes place in Los Angeles in the late 1970s and features a female lead at its centre.

The story could focus on one of the most influential film critics of all time, Pauline Kael. Kael, who died in 2001, was not only a critic but also an essayist and novelist. She was known for her vicious fights with editors as well as filmmakers. In the late 1970s, Kael had a very short tenure as a consultant for Paramount, a position he accepted at the behest of actor Warren Beatty. The timing of the Paramount job seems to coincide with the script; and the filmmaker is known to have a deep respect for Kael, making it more likely that he will be the subject of the movie.

There is no studio house in the project; According to sources, it could go to studios or buyers as early as this week. One of the pioneers could be Sony, with whom Tarantino has a close relationship with veteran Tom Rothman. Sony distributed the producer’s 2019 production Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, which is about 1960s filmmaking, and also gave him a unique deal where copyright returns to him over time. Hollywood also won two Oscars after receiving 10 nominations and grossed over $377 million worldwide.

Tarantino has a talent for attracting the most coveted actors, working with Leonardo DiCaprio and Brad Pitt each twice for two decades. He directed Christoph Waltz to win two Oscars. Samuel L. Jackson is a frequent collaborator. If this is truly his last film, there will be no shortage of actors dropping everything to queue up for roles.

The filmmaker has long argued that he has a limited number of films, saying he wants to direct 10 films or retire when he turns 60. The writer-director has made nine movies (if you count the two Kill Bill movies as one) and turns 60 later this month.

He also embraced a philosophy that directors lose communication as they get older. He told Playboy in 2012, “I want to stop at a certain point. Managers don’t get better as they get older. Usually the worst movies in their filmography are the last four movies at the end. I’m all about my filmography. “I don’t want that nasty, outdated comedy in my filmography that makes people think, ‘Oh my god, he still thinks it was 20 years ago,'” he said.

Tarantino is one of the most famous writers in Hollywood. He’s obsessed with film history and the throwaway genres that tend to operate on the fringes of the industry, such as Spaghetti Western, Blaxploitation, and Chopsocky. But his modern, elevated take on these genres earned him two Oscars for best screenplay (for Pulp Fiction and Django Unchained), three best director nominations, and one best picture nomination.

Although he plans to retire from filmmaking, he has expressed interest in other creative outlets and has stated in interviews that he may direct limited series or plays. Her first novel, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, was published in 2021.
