Quentin Tarantino is seemingly toying with new genres for his purported final movie.
A spaghetti western comedy is currently high on the wish-list for Quentin Tarantino, as the auteur filmmaker considers what to make next following the sweeping Hollywood drama of Once Upon A Time… In Hollywood. Tarantino has always stated that his tenth film would be his final one, with the intention of creating a finite and distinguished body of work that ends with the filmmaker calling it quits at the peak of his powers, rather than fading into obscurity or littering his filmography with less illustrious efforts.
Around the time of Once Upon a Time… In Hollywood's release, the director was suggesting that that particular film was his opus, and his tenth and final movie might serve almost as a footnote to his career. It certainly hasn’t stumped his ambition though, with Tarantino himself revealing that he’s considering working in not one, but two new genres that he hasn’t fully embraced before: the spaghetti western and comedy.
Speaking at the Rome Film Festival, Tarantino said that “I’m looking forward to shooting that [comedy] because it’s going to be really fun. Because I want to shoot it in the Spaghetti Western style where everybody’s speaking a different language. The Mexican Bandido is an Italian; the hero is an American; the bad sheriff is a German; the Mexican saloon girl is Israeli. And everybody is speaking a different language. And you [the actors] just know: OK, when he’s finished talking then I can talk”.
Whilst some of his previous films have borrowed elements from both genres before, it seems that the filmmaker is keen to dive fully into them for what he claims will be his final film. However, Tarantino is something of a master of misdirection when it comes to hinting at future projects, having also teased a third Kill Bill film and a remake of some of his earlier films. So as it stands, we’ll just have to wait and see.
