Quentin Tarantino is gearing to bring curtains down on his directorial career after his 10th and supposedly the final film of his career, The Movie Critic.

The eccentric filmmaker, who debuted with Reservoir Dogs in 1992 and made violence and exaggerated use of blood look cool and hilarious at the same time on the big screen with his distinctive work, has largely remained in the shadows since the release of Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood in 2019.

However, such is his fan following, thanks to cult classics like Pulp FictionDjango Unchained, and Inglourious Basterds among others, that the news of him deciding to don his director’s hat for the final time has led to the rumor mill working overtime. One of the rumors churned out has excited fans with the suggestion of a poetic déjà vu.

Quentin Tarantino’s Final Movie Might Help Revive John Travolta’s Career for the Second Time

John Travolta‘s repartee with Samuel L. Jackson is one of the key ingredients that makes Quentin Tarantino‘s Pulp Fiction so special even today, as dedicated fans still recite different quirky subjects – including just how s*xual a foot massage is – the two small-time criminals in Los Angeles discuss throughout the movie.

Fans also loved Vincent Vega’s chemistry with Uma Thurman’s Mia Wallace and gushed over his awkward dance moves with his boss’ wife. For Thurman, the role proved to be a huge breakthrough in her career, and for Travolta, it reopened the doors of Hollywood after the golden years of the 70s.


Early in his career, the Grease star was among the most sought-after talents in the industry, but after a string of commercial failures, the spotlight moved away from him after the mid-80s. Enter Tarantino, the young director with fresh (and loud) ideas, who was willing to take a bet on the star of yesteryear. Pulp Fiction happened and Travolta started making headlines once again. But his second innings also didn’t last long.

Now 69, Travolta could yet again do with a helping hand to show the new generation his talents. And it’s understood, Tarantino is planning to do exactly that through his final project, titled The Movie Critic. According to The Ankler’s Jeff Sneider, the director is saving a role for the Saturday Night Fever star in his movie.

Quentin Tarantino’s Could Reunite With Several of His Leading Stars in His Final Movie

Travolta isn’t the only former Tarantino star who will allegedly feature in The Movie Critic – a story set in late 1970s Los Angeles with a female lead at its center.

In the same post, Sneider claimed that Travolta is one of the “two of his former leading men.” 

Replying to the suggestion of the second one being Jackson, he claimed: “He was already kinda out there. I’ve heard of another one… and an actress, too.”


The “another one” could be anyone from the likes of Brad Pitt, Jamie Foxx, Robert De Niro, and many more.

For the female lead, it would be an obvious guess to say Thurman. But having revolved two Kill Bill movies around her character, it’s unlikely Tarantino would turn to the 53-year-old once again. However, we are in no position to concretely deny or confirm any claims, for the time being.
