In conversations with Martin Scorsese, Quentin Tarantino revealed some new information about a book he has been working on. Hosted by the Directors Guild of America, the two filmmakers were talking about their recent films. The Irishman directed by Scorsese and Once Upon a Time in Hollywood directed by Tarantino. Both films were positively received by critics and viewers alike over the span of the last few months.
Quoting his earlier promise of retiring after making his 10th film, Tarantino commented on a recent book he has been working on. He also hinted at focusing on writing more after his retirement at the big screen.
The novel that he is currently working on is set in the aftermath of the second world war through the eyes of a war veteran. The novel's protagonist finds himself disillusioned by the then Hollywood films. Finding them all meaningless after what he has seen during the war. Attracted instead to films by foriegn directors like Akira Kurosawa and Federico Fellini. Two highly influential filmmakers even in the current scenario.
What is left unknown is how soon Tarantino hopes to deliver on his promises.
