Legendary filmmaker Quentin Tarantino announced on Wednesday that the script for his upcoming “last” feature has been completed.
The US filmmaker of blockbusters like “Kill Bill,” “Inglourious Basterds,” and “Pulp Fiction” predicted that production on his tenth movie would begin later this year.
“I have finished the script of what will end up being my last movie,” the 60-year-old said while being questioned by Thierry Fremaux, director of the Cannes Film Festival, at the launch of his new book in Paris.
“I imagine we’ll probably shoot it I guess in the fall,” Tarantino said.
Tarantino has repeatedly said that he wants to retire after 10 films — counting the two lengthy episodes of “Kill Bill” as one.
He added that the movie, whose working title is “The Movie Critic,” will take place in 1977.
He refuted rumors that it was a biopic of Pauline Kael, the late New Yorker film critic, and insisted that there was no particular film critic it was dedicated to.
“Reservoir Dogs,” a low-budget, brutal crime caper that became a cult hit and established Tarantino as one of the industry’s most important directors, served as Tarantino’s directorial debut in 1992.
