Quentin Tarantino is reportedly nearing his grand finale, with a movie titled “The Movie Critic” in the works.
The filmmaker has already written the script for what is described as his last movie, according to The Hollywood Reporter. He plans to start directing the project this fall.
Little is known about the plot, but it reportedly centers on a female character in 1970s Los Angeles.
Tarantino, 59, has not made an official announcement about the film, but said last year that his next movie would be his last.
“I’ve been doing it for a long time” Tarantino told CNN in November. “I’ve been doing it for 30 years and it’s time to wrap up the show. I am an entertainer. I want to leave you wanting more, and I don’t want to work with diminishing returns. “
Tarantino said at the time that he didn’t know what that movie would be, adding, “I’m not in a big hurry to do my last movie either.”
“The Movie Critic” is not yet attached to a movie studio.
Tarantino released his first film, the crime classic “Reservoir Dogs,” in 1992. He is also known for directing “Pulp Fiction,” the two volumes of “Kill Bill,” “Inglourious Basterds,” and “Django Unchained.” His most recent release, 2019’s “Once Upon a Time…in Hollywood,” won two Oscars, including best supporting actor for Brad Pitt.
Tarantino, a three-time Academy Award nominee for best director, won best original screenplay Oscars in 1995 for “Pulp Fiction” and in 2013 for “Django Unchained.”
