A few years ago, Quentin Tarantino announced he was eyeing retirement after his 10th feature film. Tarantino has frequently compared directors to boxers, claiming that both have a finite window of activity where their skills can flourish. However, in Tarantino's estimation, practitioners that find themselves on the wrong side of the window are forced to watch the quality of their performances atrophy in correlation to their age. Consequently, the acclaimed Pulp Fiction director has expressed his desire to leave the film game at his creative apex.
With the release of Once Upon a Time Upon in Hollywood bringing Tarantino's cinematic output to nine feature films, several fans imagined that his next project in the director's seat would be his last. According to Variety, Tarantino is set to undertake an eight-episode television series slated to begin production next year. Let's hope we get a few more of these television series before Tarantino calls it a career.
Quentin Tarantino has disclosed that he has plans to step back into television, looking to shoot an eight-episode series in 2023. The film director shared news of the project Wednesday night while promoting his new book, "Cinema Speculation," at a New York event hosted by Elvis Mitchell. The filmmaker wasn't forthright with narrative or production details around the project. Tarantino has worked in television before, directing two episodes of "CSI: Crime Scene Investigation" in 2005. Since then he has flirted with venturing back, with reports emerging in February that the director was in talks to helm installments of FX's "Justified" revival.
