Tarantino’s pension plan: which film will be his last?
The end of Quentin Tarantino’s career has been hanging over our heads for months. Now, for the first time, the director spoke in detail about his options.
If you look at his previous work through Tarantino glasses, the 58-year-old has come up with nine specially staged films to date. Even if, in fact, he has already submitted his tenth work with “ Once Upon a Time … in Hollywood ” (Tarantino himself considers “ Kill Bill: Vol. 1 ” and “ Kill Bill: Vol. 2 ” to be just one work), he is still planning big things for his anniversary. Because: With his now tenth film, Quentin Tarantino will want to say goodbye to the stage as planned.
The problem: The legendary Tennessee cowboy definitely has plenty of ideas for new films, so which film will it be? Talking to late-night host Bill Maher rummaged through Quentin Tarantino’s options and even revealed which project he had considered years ago as a farewell tour. More jokingly, Maher threw a modern “ Reservoir Dogs ” update into the room, whereupon Tarantino replied: “Don’t worry Internet, I won’t do that. But I’ve definitely thought about it more than once. ”
Aside from the idea of saying goodbye to Hollywood with a“ Reservoir Dogs ”remake, which, to be honest, would somehow fit perfectly with Tarantino, several projects are currently underway with the 58th birthday -Year-olds. So even now there is still a separate “ Star Trek“Excursion in space that Trekkie Quentin Tarantino would love to produce. In the recent past, however, the project has repeatedly failed due to creative differences between him and Paramount. However, since Tarantino is said to have already completed the appropriate script, his own “Star Trek” adventure could still be realized – if necessary later with another director.
A return of Django has also become more and more likely in recent months. In 2019, Tarantino gave the green light to launch its “ Django / Zorro“-A comic band to adapt for the cinema. As the name suggests, it is a crossover of the two cult figures who fight together for good. It is questionable whether Tarantino will ultimately take over the direction himself or whether he will pass the project on to his colleagues from Hollywood. Speaking of spin-offs: Tarantino also had an “ Inglourious Basterds ” offshoot in the pipeline from time to time. With “ Killer Crow ” a working title was already circulating on the internet, but the topic didn’t really become concrete.
By the way, Quentin Tarantino cited the fact that many great filmmakers would retire with mediocre to bad films as the main reason for his decision to retire at the top of his work. Therefore, he urgently wants to have it in his own hands when he drops the last door – and this moment is now within his grasp.
