Brace yourself, Quentin Tarantino fans, because if a recent interview with GQ Australia is anything to go by, it sounds like Once Upon a Time in Hollywood might be the auteur’s final film.
While Tarantino has always stated that he’ll quit making movies after his 10th film, it seems he might be moving the goalposts. The upcoming Brad Pitt and Leonardo DiCaprio-starring picture is only his ninth movie, but Tarantino says he’s ready for a new challenge. “If [Once Upon a Time is] really well received, maybe I won’t go to 10. Maybe I’ll stop right now! Maybe I’ll stop while I’m ahead. We’ll see,” he said.
He added, “I think when it comes to theatrical movies, I’ve come to the end of the road. I see myself writing film books and starting to write theater, so I’ll still be creative. I just think I’ve given all I have to give to movies.”
When asked if he thought the director was joking, Pitt chimed in, “No, I don’t think he’s bluffing at all. I think he’s dead serious. And I kind of openly lament that to him, but he understands the math of when he feels like directors start falling off their game. But he has other plans and we’re not going to have to say goodbye for a long time.”
Of course, if Tarantino stops with Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, that will have repercussions for the director’s upcoming Star Trek movie, should that production go ahead after all.
Quentin Tarantino was in the last edition of Cannes with the competition premiere of his “Once Upon a Time … in Hollywood,” a film that had industry types and every manner of hanger-on without sufficient accreditation pleading, bribing and crawling for a way to get in. It happens every year, with one hot-buzz film becoming the focus of insane frenzy that clogs the streets and causes a near riot before one image even hits the screen.
