Yeah, but since it's Tarantino I can't even really be mad. If he never put anything out again, he's already cemented himself as one of the GOATS.

It’s upsetting that we got Tarantino movies in 2012, 2015, 2019, and now we’re coming up on 5 years past 2019 and we don’t even have a script yet. It’ll probably be 7-8 years between his 9th and 10th movies.

Although COVID does play a role disrupting things for a few years.

I was looking forward to it, but if he isn't feeling the magic it is best to walk away. Like someone else said it sounded kind of like an extension to Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, which may not have been a good thing especially if it ends up being his last. I would like to see another crime movie. Dig into the humongous catalogue of Donald E. Westlake and his pen name Richard Stark. A good Dortmunder story staring George Clooney as Dortmunder would be great. Clooney is old enough now and can gain a little spare tire etc. for the role. The Jugger by Richard Stark is another.

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.


Guess they are just pretending True Romance doesnt exist now

Well, it was a dumb idea on multiple levels. Does anyone really believe this would be his last film? That’s like bands and farewell/retirement tours. Does anyone want his last film to be a bomb about a movie critic?

That would have made sense if they had said that. Its been apparent to me for years that True Romance has been hid away probably because nobody wants to offend the second most holy exalted race

Quetin knows whats good for him. If he make a movie lambasting movie critics they would destroy that movie and his legacy. Better to throw them a softball.

Actually a great concept. Use all of QT's regular actors and genres over the years to create the ultimate love letter to film, all seen through the lens of a movie critic. Cool concept, but guess he couldn't make it work

I can't agree with those saying Pitt doesn't fit in the Tarantino world. I loved him in both movies.

As for the final movie, I wish he could make his version of Natural Born Killers, but I guess that will never happen.

He’s talked about making a Vega Brothers movie before. Figure out a way to do that.

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?



This could very well be a disaster but I would stand in line in pouring rain to see it on opening day. I never say that about movies.

He wrote that part in Inglorious specifically for Pitt, I’m pretty sure

In his defense, that’s basically what he’s doing.

He can’t control the media hype.

Inside the messy, late-hour collapse of the director’s mysterious final feature amid wild script and casting rumors (Tom Cruise?) and a fully on-board Sony Pictures.

quote:

Those who know Tarantino (who had no comment for this story) aren’t saying precisely why he shelved the film, only that he had grown more excited by other ideas. “He has a lot of scripts that he’s thrown away,” says one longtime talent representative familiar with Tarantino’s thinking. The filmmaker had also previously emphasized that he liked the idea of “going out on top,” which perhaps added legacy-preserving pressure to his selection of a final film. Tarantino and Sony still have every intention of partnering on whichever project the filmmaker makes instead. “He is a pure artist,” says a source close to the filmmaker, who noted his nine movies have all been original stories in an era rife with familiar IP franchises (with one caveat — Jackie Brown was adapted from an Elmore Leonard novel).
