Summary

    , was highly anticipated and shrouded in mystery for years before its unexpected cancelation.
  • Sony Pictures chairman Tom Rothman praised Tarantino’s decision to scrap the project.
  • Despite the disappointment of
    The Movie Critic
    being shelved, Rothman believes Tarantino’s final film will be even better.



The now canceled 10th and final film from Quentin Tarantino, The Movie Critic, has been described as one of the greatest movies never made by Sony Pictures chairman, Tom Rothman. The now-defunct project was announced in 2022 with plot details being, teased, rumored, and released steadily over the last two years. However, Tarantino shocked his entire fan base when he unexpectedly announced that The Movie Critic had been canceled, and he was turning his attention elsewhere for his final project.

Tom Rothman addressed the film’s cancelation (via Deadline) and had nothing but praise and respect for Tarantino’s decision. “He wants his last movie to be meaningful to him,” Rothman said, teasing the reason why the director canceled his long-awaited final film. It was revealed in April that Tarantino had scrapped the project, and would start afresh for his 10th movie. Rothman said:


“I have unbounded respect for Quentin, and he is a true artist, and his art is more important to him than anything else. I respect that. And I think he’s very, very determined that his 10th movie will be his last feature film. I’m sure he will go on to do many, many vibrant, creative things because he’s an absolute fountain of creativity, but he wants his last movie to be meaningful to him. And what are you going to say really to that? Except, right on baby.”

Tim Rothman then described The Movie Critic using a phrase that has been attached to some of the biggest directors of all time, and likened Tarantino to those lorded auteurs. Rothman continued:

“I think it’ll go down as … and Kubrick and a lot of great directors had them … as maybe one of the greatest movies the world will never see.”



Quentin Tarantino’s Last Movie Will Be ‘Even Better’ Than The Movie Critic

Although Rothman held the film’s concept, which wasn’t fully revealed (but did tie in directly with Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood, and would see Brad Pitt return as Cliff Booth), he ultimately said that Tarantino had made the right decision. The director’s planned 10 project filmography has become something of a Hollywood legend. Since his early years as a director, Tarantino has said that he only plans to make 10 movies, before moving away from the director’s chair. With The Movie Critic canceled, the gap between his 10th film and his previous movie, the aforementioned Once Upon a Time… will mark the longest break between movies that Tarantino has ever taken.

Why was Tarantino’s anticipated 10th film shelved, and would it have brought back the director’s most famous characters?

Rothman defended this gap, and Tarantino’s decision to start again, and has complete faith that, whatever the director decides to make next, will be even greater. Rothman said:

“I am greatly consoled by the absolute certainty that whatever movie he does decide to make as his last movie will in fact be even better.”

No details or production timeline have been revealed about Tarantino’s 10th film. The Movie Critic was due to begin shooting this year. However, it is likely that it may be another year or two before the director finalizes the script for his last ever movie.
