What’s Next? 🤔

Tarantino is only 61, which isn’t even the retirement age in America…

It was looking like a foregone conclusion that “The Movie Critic” would be Quentin Tarantino’s swan song as a director. He was so deep into pre-production that he was apparently eyeing Brad Pitt to return as his character Cliff Booth from “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.” Even Tom Cruise was being considered to star in his first Tarantino movie, according to entertainment rumors.

Unfortunately for fans of Tarantino, some bad entertainment news just dropped. According to Deadline, the director has decided to scrap “The Movie Critic” altogether. The outlet reported that he simply changed his mind. That’s a lot of work that led up to nothing.

Once Upon a Time in Hollywood” is one of the most critically acclaimed Brad Pitt movies so he’ll probably be disappointed by this news. That said, little was known about the movie outside of the fact that it was about a film critic. Hard to be too disappointed when Tarantino may have concocted a better idea.

 

Why Would Quentin Tarantino Cancel ‘The Movie Critic’?

Quentin Tarantino movies are always a big event and he’s one of the few directors who has real name value. However, he’s made it clear that he wants to make his next movie his last. He’s made nine movies and wants to end at 10. It’s an arbitrary and kind of ridiculous limit he’s put on himself and I think he’s in his head now.

Why would Tarantino scrap a movie he was this deep in the process of if he wasn’t worried about making it his last film? It’s pretty obvious he wishes “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood” was his last movie and now he needs to one-up himself.

 

He’s Not That Old

Honestly, it’s dumb that he’s put this limit on himself. Martin Scorsese is 81 and is as productive and acclaimed as any director working today. Tarantino is only 61, which isn’t even the retirement age in America. So many directors would kill to have the creative freedom he has but he’s giving it up just so he can stop at 10 movies.

Regardless, it’ll be interesting to see what he cooks up for his last movie now. Could it be the “Kill Bill” sequel he’s spoken about? Maybe. Could it be another Western? It’s certainly possible. Whatever it is, I’m sure it’ll be fun but something tells me it’ll be hard for him to stop at 10 movies.
