Quentin Tarantino Abandons ‘The Movie Critic,’ Opting Not to Make It His Swansong

Quentin Tarantino has decided against directing “The Movie Critic,” previously earmarked as his final film. The decision, announced Wednesday, sees Tarantino dropping the project entirely rather than revisiting or revising the screenplay.

Initially pitched as Tarantino’s tenth and concluding feature, “The Movie Critic” was to be set in 1977 and revolve around a low-key film critic who pens insightful reviews for an adult magazine. Brad Pitt, who was slated to star in the movie, was rumored to portray a version of his character Cliff Booth from “Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood.” In the book adaptation by Tarantino, Booth is depicted as an avid film enthusiast.

During a discussion at last year’s Cannes Film Festival, Tarantino teased the audience about the movie, expressing his reluctance to divulge any specifics. “I can’t tell you guys [anything] until you see the movie. I’m tempted to do some of the character’s monologues right now, but I’m not going to. Maybe if there were fewer video cameras. You just have to wait and see,” he shared.

The project was progressing, with significant developments including securing Brad Pitt for the lead role and a generous $20 million tax subsidy from California. However, Tarantino’s sudden shift in direction puts the film on indefinite hold.

Following his shelving of an R-rated “Star Trek” movie in 2019—deemed too large-scale at the time—and abandoning a concept for an eight-episode television series in 2022, Tarantino remains elusive about his next creative venture.

This latest development in Tarantino’s career was first revealed by Deadline, leaving fans and the film industry speculating on what the famed director will choose as his next, potentially final, project.
