There has been plenty of speculation in recent years about what Quentin Tarantino's alleged 'final' film may be about.

The iconic director has long said that he only intends to make ten films (that is considering 'Kill Bill 1 & 2' as one film), and that he plans to retire from directing after that. Rumours have abounded about what that film might be - from an adaptation of Elmore Leonard's novel 'Stick', to another 'Kill Bill' installment.

Tarantino, who turned 60 earlier this week, has now revealed in a new interview that he has finished writing the script of his final film - called 'The Movie Critic' - as well as revealing new details about it, including the fact that it is set in 1977.

He said at a Q&A event in Paris, while being interviewed about his new book 'Cinema Speculation', "I have finished the script of what will end up being my last movie", adding "I imagine we'll probably shoot it, I guess, in the fall."

However, he denied that the film is about influential film critic Pauline Kael, who was The New Yorker's film reviewer from 1968 to 1991. Still, given that the 1970s were such a transformative time for film and Hollywood - and indeed, the young Tarantino - we can expect something as big and bold as we've come to expect from the 'Pulp Fiction' director.

Last year, Tarantino said that he planned to shoot an 8-part TV series in 2023, but the status of that project remains unknown.

His last film was 2019's 'Once Upon a Time in Hollywood'. Further details on casting and a potential release date have yet TBA, but watch this space for more.
