It is a Quentin Tarantino in great shape who presented himself to his French public, this Wednesday, March 29, at the Grand Rex in Paris. Passing through the capital to promote his very first book/essay Cinema speculations (at Flammarion), the director discussed on stage with Thierry Frémaux, director of the Institut Lumière and general delegate of the Cannes Film Festival, in front of a packed and private room. telephones. The opportunity for the director of Pulp Fiction, Kill Bill, Reservoir Dogs or very recently Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood, to come back to the films, directors and actors who have shaped his cinema, but also to offer some exclusive information on his next and last film, he who has always announced that his filmography would be limited to ten works. When Thierry Frémaux describes his new film as “the last” (“your new and last movie”), Tarantino shudders: is funny, said like that.” The film would therefore really be the last achievement of the Hollywood figure. As for the many rumors surrounding the film, Quentin Tarantino confirms: it will be called The Movie Critic, the script has indeed been completed and filming will begin this fall, in Los Angeles.

Thierry Frémaux, general delegate of the Cannes Film Festival, n wasted no time and immediately estimated the film’s finishing date: “Shooting this fall, a year of post-production, would it be ready for… May 2025?”, asks Frémaux, with a smile on his lips, following what the two men toasted. The appointment would therefore be made, and we can therefore safely expect to see the very last Tarantino on the poster for the Cannes Film Festival in 2025.
