As Once Upon a Time in Hollywood comes to cinemas, the director confirms one last ‘epilogue-y’ film
Back in 2014, Quentin Tarantino announced that he would retire from filmmaking following 10 major movies. The director, who’s been the subject of much controversy in recent years, explained his reasoning as wanting to leave behind a solid legacy that leaves audiences wanting more. With his ninth film Once Upon A Time In Hollywood hitting UK cinemas, this leaves room for one last film.
At a Moscow press conference for his latest film on Wednesday, the filmmaker confirmed there’s still has “one more to make”, describing his final movie as “epilogue-y”. “If you think about the idea of all the movies telling one story and each film is like a train boxcar connected to each other, this one would sort of be the big show-stopping climax of it all, and I could imagine that the tenth one would be a little more epilogue-y,” he said.
While no further details have been revealed, the Pulp Fiction director has in the past spoken about his interest in making a Star Trek movie, but whether that’s a part of his master plan, we don’t know.
So what’s next for the filmmaker? Well, in a recent interview with GQ Australia, he said: “I think when it comes to theatrical movies, I’ve come to the end of the road. I see myself writing film books and starting to write theatre, so I’ll still be creative. I just think I’ve given all I have to give to movies.” A Kill Bill-themed comic book, anyone?
