Quentin Tarantino and Brad Pitt reunite for the third time in the director’s final film, ‘The Movie Critic.’ Pitt will play the role of a Journalist. The film’s story is described as being set in late 1970s Los Angeles.
The script was penned by Tarantino himself, and filming will begin in 2024. ‘The Movie Critic’ is based on a journalist who wrote for a magazine that Tarantino read while working as a vending machine restocker during his youth. The film is set in 1977 Southern California and follows a character arc similar to Robert De Niro’s Travis Bickle in Martin Scorsese’s ‘Taxi Driver.’
Tarantino remembered, “There was this interesting movie page in a porno magazine I read as a teenager. He wrote about mainstream movies, and he was a very good, cynical critic, kind of like a mix between early Howard Stern and what Travis Bickle would be if he were a film critic. Think of Travis’ diary entries.”
He said that the porno magazine critic was funny but rude, using racial slurs and cursing. He died in his late 30s, likely due to complications from alcoholism. In ‘The Movie Critic,’ the magazine will be fictionalized as “The Popstar Pages,” and the film is based on a not-so-famous guy who wrote movie reviews for a porno magazine in his early to mid-30s.
When will ‘The Movie Critic’ Hit Theaters?
Sony Pictures is expected to distribute the film, produced by Stacey Sher, with a targeted 2025 release.
