The legendary Hollywood filmmaker’s last film may be shot in Israel
Acclaimed director Quentin Tarantino, known for helming avant-garde films like Pulp Fiction, the Kill Bill franchise and others, has disclosed his plans to retire after making one more film. The ace filmmaker reiterated that he believes in quitting when he’s at the top of his game.
The director made the revelation in a recent appearance on the talk show Real Time With Bill Maher. When faced with the question of being too young to retire, Tarantino reiterated by saying, "Because I know film history and from here on end, directors do not get better."
The filmmaker, wholeheartedly expressed that he had a long career, spanning 30 years, despite not doing as many movies as others. When asked about his plans for his swansong and whether a reboot of his 1992 directorial debut film Reservoir Dogs would be better than the original film, Tarantino expressed that he considered doing it for his last directorial venture but eventually decided against it. "I won't do it, Internet! But I considered it," Quentin revealed on the talk show.
The director disclosed that he has been thinking of adopting the backdrop of Israel for his last movie. He expressed, "If you make a movie in Jerusalem, there's nowhere you can point the camera where you're not capturing something fantastic."
The Oscar-winning director’s last movie, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood starring Brad Pitt and Leonardo Di Caprio, released in 2019 was his ode to the art of filmmaking. The film went on to earn 10 Oscar nominations and even won two Academy Awards for Best Actor in a Supporting Role and Best Production Design. Once Upon a Time in Hollywood is available to stream on Amazon Prime Video.
