During a Once Upon a Time in Hollywood press conference in Moscow, Quentin Tarantino briefly commented on what audiences might expect from his 10th and final feature film.
Acclaimed filmmaker Quentin Tarantino has declared his intention to retire from directing feature films after the release of his tenth picture, meaning he has one more to helm with the recent debut of Once Upon a Time in Hollywood. While Quentin Tarantino has not provided details on his final feature film, the filmmaker did offer audiences a hint of what to expect while promoting Once Upon a Time in Hollywood in Russia.
During the press conference, Quentin Tarantino described Once Upon a Time in Hollywood as a climax to the previous eight films he directed throughout his career. According to Quentin Tarantino, this means he imagines his tenth project could serve as a sort of ‘epilogue’ to his previous works:
“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 10th one would be a little more epilogue-y”
As previously mentioned, Quentin Tarantino has not divulged details on what his tenth project will be. However, the filmmaker previously noted that he if he decides to direct his Star Trek script for Paramount, the science-fiction film would count as his final feature.
Here is the official synopsis for Once Upon a Time in Hollywood:
Quentin Tarantino’s ONCE UPON A TIME IN HOLLYWOOD visits 1969 Los Angeles, where everything is changing, as TV star Rick Dalton (Leonardo DiCaprio) and his longtime stunt double Cliff Booth (Brad Pitt) make their way around an industry they hardly recognize anymore.
