Quentin Tarantino to Direct Limited Series

The Oscar-winning filmmaker has postponed his 10th and reportedly final film to focus on an eight-episode limited series, reportedly for a streamer.

Quentin Tarantino maybe watching his last movie, but also his first TV show.

The Oscar-winning ‘Pulp Fiction’ author has been confirmed to be helming an upcoming eight-episode series. Tarantino broke the news on his “Cinema Speculation” book tour in New York City while talking to Elvis Mitchell, whose documentary “Am I Black Enough For You?” premiered on Netflix earlier this year. Tarantino’s series will premiere in early 2023.

IndieWire has reached out to Tarantino or commented.

Tarantino recently teamed up with Netflix to release the 2015 movie “The Hateful Eight” in installments. As for his forays into television, Tarantino was previously credited for episodes of “From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series” based on his film starring Robert Rodriguez. He also wrote and directed two episodes of “CSI: Crime Scene Investigation” in 2005, and directed an episode of “ER” in 1995, and also played a character in a two part of “Alias”.

The “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood” writer-director revealed that his long-rumoured 10th and final film is more in a gray area, with Tarantino asking the question: What is cinema other than a movie theater? Tarantino revealed that a 30-day theater window before it debuts on a streamer would “reduce” [his] returns” to a feature film, hence the move to TV. However, Tarantino also suggested that a streaming film would not really count as the last feature.

Tarantino announced in 2020 that he wanted to retire as a director and finish his film career at No. 10. The ‘Reservoir Dogs’ writer-director teased a ‘mic drop’ movie, with ideas ranging from “Kill Bill 3” to a spaghetti western and even a horror movie.

But now Tarantino noted that his final film will be completely original, sharing that he once considered turning Elmore Leonard’s “Stick” noir novel into a movie, but it won’t be his “magnum opus.” Also, a completely new work for Tarantino’s tenth movie seems to rule out the teased “Kill Bill 3.”

Tarantino has a two-book deal with HarperCollins, the first of which, a Pauline Kael-inspired book of essays titled “Cinema Speculation,” is available now. The screenwriter of “True Romance” also wrote a play.

“I feel like this is the time for the third act [of my life] to just lean a little bit more into literature, which would be good as a new dad, as a new husband,” Tarantino said said in 2020. “I wouldn’t grab my family and drag it to Germany or Sri Lanka or wherever the next story takes place. I can be a little more of a homebody and a little more of a man of letters.”
