Quentin Tarantino has long claimed he only plans on directing ten films, and according to reports, the iconic director is sticking to that plan as he gears up to make what will apparently be his final film.

According to reports, Tarantino’s next movie (which will also be his last), is titled The Movie Critic and is set to begin production this fall. At this time, no casting announcements have been made.

The Hollywood Reporter says that the film will be set in 1970s Los Angeles and will center on a female film critic, possibly Pauline Kael, a real-life film critic who is considered to be one of the most influential in the history of the profession.

So far, Tarantino has directed Reservoir Dogs, Pulp Fiction, Jackie Brown, Kill Bill Vol. 1, Kill Bill Vol. 2, Deathproof, Inglourious Basterds, The Hateful Eight, and Once Upon A Time… In Hollywood.

It is possible the story focuses on Pauline Kael, one of the most influential movie critics of all time. Kael, who died in 2001, was not just a critic but also an essayist and novelist. She was known for her pugnacious fights with editors as well as filmmakers.

In the late 1970s, Kael had a very brief tenure working as a consultant for Paramount, a position she accepted at the behest of actor Warren Beatty. The timing of that Paramount job seems to coincide with the setting of the script — and the filmmaker is known to have a deep respect for Kael, making the odds of her being the subject of the film more likely.

At this time, Tarantino — who appears ready to walk away from directing despite not yet being 60 years old — has yet to publicly comment on the project.
