Brad Pitt will most likely reunite with American film director and screenwriter Quentin Tarantino for his tenth and reportedly final film, `The Movie Critic`. However, there is no confirmation, reported Variety.

Tarantino hasn`t revealed much about `The Movie Critic`, but it`s set in southern California in the 1970s and revolves around a pessimistic film critic. It is said to be inspired by the life of Pauline Kael, a late New Yorker writer and one of the most important film critics of her era.

Tarantino avoided questions about `The Movie Critic` during a talk at the Cannes Film Festival in 2023, saying to audience members, “I can`t tell you guys [anything] until you see the movie. I`m tempted to do some of the character`s monologues right now, but I`m not going to. Maybe if there were less video cameras. You just have to wait and see.”

According to Variety, Pitt is planning to film a Formula One racing film with `Top Gun: Maverick` director Joseph Kosinski in 2024. In that film, an Apple production, he plays a retired race car driver who returns to compete against a novice racer and the sport`s titans.

So, if talks for `The Movie Critic` are finished, production would most likely not begin until mid-year or later. The film will shoot in California and obtain a $20 million tax credit, but no studio has been committed to it.

Pitt and Tarantino previously collaborated on 2009`s `Inglourious Basterds` and 2019`s `Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood`, earning Pitt an Oscar for best supporting actor. `Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood` starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Margot Robbie, grossed $377 million internationally.

Tarantino has shared an intention to retire from filmmaking after his 10th film. He made his feature debut with the independent crime drama `Reservoir Dogs` in 1992 and followed that up with 1994`s Palme d`Or-winning `Pulp Fiction.` Tarantino also directed `Jackie Brown,` Kill Bill: Volume 1` and `Volume 2`, `Death Proof,` `Django Unchained` and `The Hateful Eight` reported Variety.
