The cult filmmaker is everywhere you don’t expect him to be, and could abandon his film career a bit to focus on the wonderful world of podcasting.
The information comes from the site The verge, and it may appeal to moviegoers. Quentin Tarantino, the cult director and multi-awarded for Kill Bill, Django Unchained, Pulp Fiction or Inglourious Basterds, will be launching his own podcast. According to initial information, the filmmaker will take advantage of this new privileged meeting with his fans to browse his multimedia library, whether it be CD or DVD and Blu-Ray. He will return in particular to the films that marked his life, and will explain their personal meaning. In short, a lesson in cinema from a great master.
Produced by Earwolf, this new show centered on Quentin Tarantino would barely begin its recording sessions. For now, no release date or even name are therefore mentioned. However, we can expect the director to give us his vision of cinema – and more generally of life – in an ambitious project which will return in particular to his biggest cinematographic successes. And there is plenty to do.
A reconversion in project?
It’s no secret that Quentin Tarantino has always had the project not to drag on in the world of cinema. After an explosive start to his career in 1992 and Reservoir Dogs, the big name of Hollywood is already in his ninth film, having signed in 2019 the very successful Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood. If we follow the logic of the filmmaker, he therefore has one final feature film left to conclude in style a multi-award-winning career, which already has several BAFTAs, Golden Globes, as well as two Oscars for the screenplays of pulp Fiction in 1995 and Django unchained in 2013. While many hope for the return of Kill Bill for a third installment, others rely more on horror, a genre to which the jack-of-all-trades has never lent itself, or on the contrary a comedy inspired by spaghetti westerns. A reboot of Reservoir Dogs is not to be excluded either.
The podcast project announced by The verge could therefore sign the imminent end of the filmmaker’s career, as well as a reconversion in a more confidential register. However, the career of the creator of Kill bill is not likely to end anytime soon. Like Hayao Miyazaki before him, we are not immune to Tarantino announcing his retirement, only to change his mind a few years later.
