Will Tarantino reform a legendary tandem that appeared in one of his most famous feature films? We take stock of this crazy rumor.
Last March, Quentin Tarantino finally announced his new project, which should be his last feature film as a director: The Movie Critic. Since then, speculation has been rife about the casting of the film!
Recently, rumors in the corridors announced Paul Walter Hauser (The Case of Richard Jewell) in the main role, that of film critic Jim Sheldon. Some time before, there was talk that Tarantino would offer a small appearance to Bruce Willis, forced to retire due to health reasons.
This time, it’s John Travolta who is expected to star in The Movie Critic! According to journalist Jeff Sneider, very often well informed, the unforgettable Vincent Vega of Pulp Fiction will have a role in Tarantino’s latest film.
Furthermore, the legendary duo of the 1994 Palme d’Or could be reformed! According to insider Daniel Richtman, also often well informed, Samuel L. Jackson would also be part of the casting. 30 years later, seeing the performers of Vincent Vega and Jules Winnfield (Pulp Fiction) reunited at Tarantino would be very exciting.
Jeff Sneider also mentions an actress who has already collaborated with Tarantino. Uma Thurman (Kill Bill)? Pam Grier (Jackie Brown)? Margot Robbie (Once Upon A Time In Hollywood)? The rumors will surely continue to circulate before the casting is made official.
For the moment, the director of Reservoir Dogs, who recently revealed his favorite series, has not spoken on this subject. We probably won’t have anything official until after the Hollywood strike ends.
All we know is that the plot will take place in 1977 in Los Angeles and will introduce us to a male main character. Tarantino described him as a sort of Travis Bickle (Taxi Driver) of film criticism.
Given the strike that is paralyzing Hollywood cinema at the moment, we do not know when filming will be able to begin. Additionally, no release date has been announced yet. We will therefore have to be patient before having more information on the 10th and final film of Quentin Tarantino’s career.
