Quentin Tarantino Researches The 1970s For His Newest Project

Quentin Tarantino

Many are wondering what Quentin Tarantino‘s next project will be, following the success of The Hateful Eight. The director said he has two films left in him before he considers retirement. Now he’s revealed that he’s been researching the 1970s for something that might not end up being a film, but something else entirely.

Check out what he had to say below.

Tarantino was at the Lumière Festival where he spoke to Deadline about his research and how it could turn into a book or even a podcast:

“Am I going to write a book? Maybe. Is it going to be a six-part podcast? Maybe. A feature documentary? Maybe. I’m figuring it out.”

It will be interesting to see what Tarantino comes up with. The filmmaker clearly understands how exploitation films, B movies, and pop culture works. He hones all of that into the terrific dialogue we hear in movies. The fact that his research could influence something other than a movie is somewhat exciting.

The director then cited Mark Harris’ book Pictures At A Revolution: Five Movies and the Birth of the New Hollywood as an influence for his research:

New Hollywood was the Hollywood and anything that even smacked of Old Hollywood was dead on arrival. The more I started going to the library and looking up newspaper articles of what it was like, I realized New Hollywood had won the revolution but whether it would survive wasn’t clear. Cinema had changed so drastically that Hollywood had alienated the family audience. “¦ Society demanded (the Hollywood new wave) but that doesn’t mean that they supported it as a business model and it made me realize that New Hollywood cinema from 1970-76 at the very least was actually more fragile than I thought it was. That experiment could have died in 1970.

The idea sounds intriguing for a movie, like something to the tune of Hail, Ceasar!, a Hollywood long-forgotten. If anyone can turn our attention to decades-old filmmaking, it would probably be Tarantino, who is clearly a fan. Though he doesn’t know what his research could end up being, it should be interesting to see what he comes up with. Hopefully, we’ll hear more about the project as it develops or if it turns out to be anything at all.
