EXCLUSIVE: Quentin Tarantino’s movies are always full of surprises, and here is one about The Movie Critic we did not expect. Deadline can reveal that Tarantino has dropped the film as his 10th and final project. He simply changed his mind, Deadline has been told.

Tarantino was going to have Brad Pitt as the principal star, which would have marked their third teaming after Inglourious Basterds and Once Upon a Time in Hollywood. There were rumors that many from the casts of his past films might take part, and Sony was preparing to make the film after doing such a superb job on the last one.

Word is that Tarantino had rewritten his script, which delayed the start of production. But this is his 10th and final film, and Tarantino simply decided The Movie Critic will not be it.

This is the biggest surprise to Tarantino fans since years back when Deadline revealed he had shelved The Hateful Eight after he gave a small group of actors his script and one of them shared it with their rep. Soon it had been copied and the rough draft was shared all over town and online. Tarantino felt betrayed, but he eventually returned to the project after staging a reading for charity and drawing raves for it.

Just make it or don’t. But I’m tired of the hype of his “final film.” Just make movies you want and don’t ones you don’t, Quentin.

Didn’t he supposedly want to do some sort of Star Trek movie at one point as well? Or am I thinking of someone else?

And don’t get me wrong, I love most of QT’s movies so whatever his next film is I’ll definitely watch it. I just don’t think he needs to be up on this pedestal that people always seem to put him on.

Yeah I just read that.

Interesting. If he just doesn’t think it’s right, it’s not right.

I wasn’t in love with the concept personally

There's been tons of franchises fans have tried to link him to. I think he may have mentioned in an interview once it would fun to do Star Trek or whatever but there has never been any serious talk of him doing that. I really can't see him doing a big franchise movie.

Him doing a big franchise would be such a waste of his talents and just an overall awful idea.

Guy like that isn’t going to make a blockbuster crowd pleaser tentpole movie, nor should he

Seems like that’s what he’s doing.

Someone must have informed him about Only Fans and now it’ll just be a 4 hour long black and white Only Fans movie about feet

I hope whatever his final film is it doesn't have Brad Pitt as the lead

I kinda agree. He doesn't work for Tarantino movies....he just feels out of Tarantino's movie universe....it just doesn't work.

He won an Oscar for Once Upon a Time in Hollywood and I'm still not sure what he did to get it. He walked and talked like a robot in slow motion the whole movie but I guess the special effects of him throwing Bruce Lee into a car and beating up the Manson crew was Oscar worthy

Go back and watch Inglorious Basterds....

Nothing against him.

But he's either embarrassing or worse, sort of distracting or annoying or worthless in QT movies. Tarantino actually pulled off a trick...he made has-been Travolta look like a movie star and made Brad Pitt not look like a movie star. That's sort of what I'm talking about. He's a terrible fit for QT movies.

I can’t agree with “embarrassing or worse”, but I will say that Pitt’s performance was not in the top 5 among actors in Inglorious Bastards.

As for Travolta, Vincent Vega in a lot of ways was a “hardened” Vinny Barbarino.

I had never really understood what irked me about a few QT movies until Corso posted about Pitt.

Like him in other movies, he just frickin' doesn't work in Tarantino movies. Its just bad casting. How do I put this? I don't buy him.at all in those movies. Its like he shows up as a star extra.....he's never believable that he's "in the movie" and you get immersed....no its, I'm watching Brad Pitt, he doesn't dissolve into the material...and it sticks out and is annoying. His characters are set pieces.

I think.QT diminished two of his movies with that casting mistake.

Along with Hateful Eight but that's another issue.

I think this is a good thing / wise move on QT's part. The description of The Movie Critic made me think of those parts in Once Upon a Time where he edited DiCaprio into old movies and TV shows, or the parts on the set of movies and TV shows, or the parts with characters watching movies in theaters. He just did a movie like that, Once Upon a Time is already a love letter to movies and Hollywood. Feel like QT should go out on an epic bang, not another meta alternate history piece about movies.

I could be wrong, but I thought I heard QT floating the idea of returning to the crime genre for his final film, a la Reservoir Dogs, Pulp Fiction and Jackie Brown. This would make sense, kinda poetic, go out the way you came in.

Whatever QT does, I hope it's a giant FU to PC and woke SJWs in form, language and content. Once Upon a Time was already this way, I hope he takes it even further. Must be heartbreaking for QT to see what has happened to movies and pop culture since he first blazed onto the scene just over thirty years ago. Now being painted as a villain, his entire oeuvre under threat of being retroactively canceled as the work of a male chauvinist pig and racist dinosaur through the lens of this woke cultural revolution. Burn it all down and drop the mic on the way out, QT.
