Quentin Tarantino shares important details about his latest film
Quentin Tarantino has shared a detail about what should be the last film he will direct.
The director talked a lot about a “10 movie plan” in which he would direct 10 movies and then call it a day, retiring from Hollywood to rest on his laurels.
With nine films completed, there’s only one film left before we risk seeing Tarantino’s last.
We say he has nine movies to his credit, to reach that total you either have to count the two volumes of Kill Bill in a full payment or a drop Proof of death entirely from the list.
With The Hateful Eight selling as the director’s eighth film, it’s clear how much he thinks he’s done in his plan.
Whichever way you count it, according to Tarantino, he only has one movie left to complete his movie slate and it may be the last we see of his work on the big screen.
According to The Digital Fix, Tarantino has revealed that the next film he will direct will be an entirely original idea.
That hasn’t always been the case throughout his career in the director’s chair, because Jackie Brown was adapted from the novel Rum punch.
Still, with the vast majority of Tarantino’s movies being the stories he wanted to tell rather than adaptations, it seems audiences will get more of what they want from him.
The director fired back, saying “it didn’t happen” and insisting he came up with the idea to Django long before the rapper claimed to invent it.
With all of these ideas swirling around in his mind and his next movie one of his original creations, it’s not hard to imagine he already has a pretty clear idea of what he’s going to do with movie number 10.
A love letter to the last days of Hollywood’s Golden Age, the director said he used to say “these are all my children” when asked what his best film was, but he now knows which is his favorite.
That’s high praise considering he has movies like pulp Fiction and reservoir dogs in his locker.
Superhero movies have been the dominant force in cinema for over a decade now and Tarantino, who said he didn’t direct any as he was ‘not an employee’, believes his colleagues filmmakers can’t wait for their time to pass.
He doesn’t think they’ve had their time yet, though, as he said “the writing isn’t quite on the wall yet”, but there might come a time when they’re something that “no one cares anymore”.
