Quentin Tarantino is in the process of making his last film

Quentin Tarantino finds himself in a unique predicament. The filmmaker has long said he would stop making movies once he hit his tenth or turned 60 – whichever came first. But why retire when you've got a good thing going? In any case, ever since Once Upon a Time in Hollywoodfans have been pressed to learn details about what that final film might look like and Tarantino has been hesitant to dish them out, until now. If Tarantino sticks to his word, it looks like his final film will be one tentatively titled The Movie Critic. Everything we know about it, below.

What is The Movie Critic about?

Truthfully, Tarantino is keeping most of the details about his latest project under lock and key. But according to The Hollywood Reporter, he plans to begin production this spring armed with the completed script he titled The Movie Critic. But just because there's no logline, doesn't mean there's no rumours around what the project will focus on. Sources close to the project allege that it will be set in the late 1970s with a female lead.

Who will star?

It wouldn't be a Tarantino film without a set roaming with Hollywood's most treasured actors. In the past he's managed to draw in names like Brad Pitt and Leonardo DiCaprio, Samuel L. Jackson, Christoph Waltz, Uma Thurman, Margot Robbie, Margaret Qualley and more. Given that the film is billed as Tarantino's last, we imagine actors will be scrambling over each other to book a role. More on this as the news surfaces.

Why will it be his last?

The idea that Tarantino would only make 10 films emerged from an interview the director did with Playboy back in 2012 while promoting Django Unchained. He told the publication, "I just don't want to be an old-man filmmaker. I want to stop at a certain point. Directors don't get better as they get older," he controversially stated. "Usually the worst films in their filmography are those last four at the end. I am all about my filmography, and one bad film fucks up three good ones..."

However, he also admitted there's no hard and fast rules once he hits the auspicious number. "If I have a change of heart, if I come up with a new story, I could come back." Let's see if retirement sticks.
