Quentin Tarantino’s final film will be an “original” screenplay

Tarantino was tempted to adapt Elmore Leonard’s noir novel Stick after filming Jackie Brown, but announced his 10th film will be an original screenplay.

Quentin Tarantino’s final film will be an entirely standalone work, the writer says.

Speaking to Elvis Mitchell during Tarantino’s Cinema Speculation book tour in New York City, the Once Upon a Time in Hollywood writer/director revealed he was tempted to adapt Elmore Leonard’s Stick for the big screen. Tarantino previously adapted Leonard’s “Rum Punch” and reimagined it as “Jackie Brown.”

Stick also inspired the Cliff Booth character in Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, played by Academy Award winner Brad Pitt.

Instead, Tarantino’s “magnum opus” will be an entirely standalone work, which seems to rule out a long-rumored third “Kill Bill” film.

Tarantino announced in 2020 that he was retiring from directing and ending his film career at No. 10. The Reservoir Dogs filmmaker teased a Mic Drop movie with ideas ranging from Kill Bill 3 to a spaghetti western, horror film or comedy.

Now, Tarantino admitted that the question of what his tenth and final film will be bothers him, especially since streaming exists as a gray area for filmmakers. Tarantino wondered what is cinema if not in a cinema? He went on to say that a 30-day theatrical window before debuting on a streamer “would diminish [his] Returns” to a feature film and implied that a streaming film would not actually count as the definitive feature film.

During a recent SiriusXM interview with Howard Stern, Tarantino called Once Upon a Time in Hollywood his “best movie” yet.

“People have asked me stuff like that for years,” said the Pulp Fiction Oscar winner. “And I would say something like, ‘Oh, these are all my children.’ Then I would change it to, “Well, it depends when you ask me. If you ask me a year or a moment, I could say, oh, ‘Kill Bill.’ One more thing, I could say something else.’ [But] I really think ‘Once Upon a Time in Hollywood’ is my best film.”

Tarantino previously admitted that the flop Grindhouse was probably “a little too cool for school.”

“I think me and Robert [Rodriguez] I just felt like people knew a little bit more about the history of double features and exploitation movies. No, they do not have. Ever,” Tarantino told Empire magazine in 2020. “They had no idea what the hell they were looking at. It didn’t mean anything to them, okay, what we did. So that was a little too cool for school.”

Next, Tarantino announced that he will direct an eight-episode limited series.
