The director says he’s been ‘thinking a lot about it’
Earlier this year, Quentin Tarantino revealed that he’s directing a Once Upon A Time In Hollywood spin-off, set around the film’s fictitious TV show, Bounty Law. Now, the director has teased that he might be writing a novel adaptation too.
Speaking on the latest Pure Cinema podcast on April 1, Tarantino said he was “thinking a lot” about a potential book rendition of the Oscar nominated film about a faded television actor’s strive to achieve fame in Hollywood’s Golden Age: 1969 Los Angeles.
“I hadn’t thought about that until recently. But now I’m thinking a lot about it. I might be writing a novelisation to Once Upon A Time In Hollywood,” he said.
In January, the filmmaker released A Love Letter To Making Movies, a 30-minute documentary that shows the behind-the-scenes of Once Upon A Time In Hollywood, providing the audience with insights into Tarantino’s ideas, themes, and inspirations.
Despite announcing that his 10th film will be his last, the director has confirmed that Kill Bill 3 is definitely on the cards. He’s also writing a novel about a WWII veteran’s struggle to connect with “phony” Hollywood movies.
