Quentin Tarantino Has Scrapped 'The Movie Critic' as His Final Film

Quentin Tarantino is no longer moving forward The Movie Critic as his 10th and final film. Deadline was the first to report that the acclaimed director has "simply changed his mind." Sources told the publication that for Tarantino is not looking to rewrite the script or revive the project and that he plans to make his final film a completely new project.

Previously, the timeline for the film was pushed back due to another rewrite of the film. Brad Pitt was expected to be cast in the lead role. Tarantino had said before that the film would take place in the 1970s and was set to center around the life of a cynical film reviewer. He also previously said at the Cannes Film Festival in 2023, "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 less video cameras. You just have to wait and see." The production also secured a $20 million USD tax subsidy in the state of California before the news of Tarantino no longer moving forward with the project.

It is uncertain what he is working on next.
