Hollywood director Quentin Tarantino has teased many different scenarios for what he plans to do when he retires from directing after his tenth film. He has teased a sequel to Kill Bill and even an R-rated Star Trek film. Now, the Once Upon A Time In Hollywood director has revealed another upcoming project outside of filmmaking: a book
In a conversation published by DGA Quarterly Magazine, Tarantino sat down with director Martin Scorsese, who’s new film The Irishman will hit Netflix in November, to talk about various topics revolving movies. In the beginning of the discussion, Tarantino talked about his desire to write a book around a new character he’s been working on.
“I’ve got this character who had been in World War II and he saw a lot of bloodshed there. And now he’s back home, and it’s like the ’50s, and he doesn’t respond to movies anymore. He finds them juvenile after everything that he’s been through. As far as he’s concerned, Hollywood movies are movies. And so then, all of a sudden, he starts hearing about these foreign movies by Kurosawa and Fellini. … And so he’s like, ‘Well, maybe they might have something more than this phony Hollywood stuff.’”
Tarantino didn’t give any more information regarding the book.
