Quentin Tarantino on Direct Limited Series

The Oscar-winning filmmaker has postponed his tenth and reportedly final film to focus on an eight-episode limited series rumored to be for a streamer.

Quentin Tarantino may have his eye on his last film, but he also has his eye on his first TV show.

The Oscar-winning ‘Pulp Fiction’ author has been confirmed to direct an upcoming eight-episode limited series. Tarantino broke the news during his Cinema Speculation book tour in New York City while discussing with Elvis Mitchell, whose documentary Am I Black Enough For You? premiered on Netflix earlier this year. Tarantino’s series will premiere in early 2023.

IndieWire reached out to Tarantino or comment.

Tarantino recently partnered with Netflix to release the 2015 film The Hateful Eight in episodes. As for his forays into television, Tarantino has previously been credited for From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series episodes based on his film starring Robert Rodriguez. He also wrote and directed two episodes of CSI: Crime Scene Investigation in 2005 and directed an episode of ER in 1995 and played a character in a two-parter of Alias.

The Once Upon a Time in Hollywood writer-director revealed that his long-rumored tenth and final film exists in more of a gray area, with Tarantino asking the question: What is a cinema if not a cinema? Tarantino stated that a 30-day theatrical window before debuting on a streamer “would diminish [his] returns” in a feature film, hence the move to television. However, Tarantino also hinted that a streaming movie wouldn’t really count as the final feature film.

Tarantino announced in 2020 that he was retiring as a director and would finish his film career at No. 10. The Reservoir Dogs writer-director teased a Mic Drop movie with ideas ranging from Kill Bill 3 to spaghetti westerns and even a horror movie.

But now Tarantino has noted that his final film will be entirely original, sharing that he once considered adapting Elmore Leonard’s noir novel Stick into a film, but it won’t be his “magnum opus.” Also, all-new work for Tarantino’s tenth film seemingly rules out the teased Kill Bill 3.

Tarantino has a two-book deal with HarperCollins, with the first, a Pauline Kael-inspired book of essays called Cinema Speculation, available now. The True Romance screenwriter has also written a play.

“I feel like this is the time for the third act [of my life] just leaning into literature a little bit more, which would be good as a new father, as a new husband,” Tarantino said in 2020. “I wouldn’t grab my family and drag them to Germany or Sri Lanka or whatever the next story unfolds. I can be a little more of a couch potato and a little more of a writer.”
