The Movie Critic: Quentin Tarantino’s Latest Project
In recent months, details about Quentin Tarantino’s upcoming film have been slowly emerging. Tentatively titled “The Movie Critic,” this project is speculated to be Tarantino’s tenth and possibly final movie. Set to unfold in 1977, the film is not based on real-life critic Pauline Kael, but rather revolves around a fictional “second-string critic” known for reviews that resemble a blend of early Howard Stern and what Travis Bickle might be if he were a film critic.
John Travolta and Bruce Willis: Potential Reunion in Tarantino’s Film
Notable news has surfaced suggesting that Tarantino plans to reunite with two of his former leading men for “The Movie Critic.” Jeff Sneider, reporter for The Ankler and co-host of The Hot Mic, hinted on Twitter that John Travolta and Bruce Willis may have reserved roles in the film. Travolta, who rose to fame in the 1970s with movies like “Saturday Night Fever” and “Grease,” experienced a career resurgence in the mid-1990s with his role in Tarantino’s acclaimed film “Pulp Fiction,” earning him an Academy Award nomination. This potential collaboration would mark the first reunion between the two actors since “Pulp Fiction.”
Travolta’s Recent Ventures and Willis’ Possible Cameo
While Travolta’s recent film credits include “The Fanatic,” “Paradise City,” and “Mob Land,” his upcoming project is “Cash Out.” The actor also garnered critical acclaim with an Emmy nomination for his role in the miniseries “The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story” and starred in the series “Die Hart,” which was later turned into a feature-length movie available on Amazon Prime Video with a subscription.
Bruce Willis, on the other hand, officially retired from acting in 2022 due to a diagnosis of aphasia, which has since progressed to frontotemporal dementia. If he were to appear in “The Movie Critic,” it would be in a cameo role. However, Tarantino reportedly has a backup plan in place, including the use of a clip from one of Willis’ previous movies. The extent of Travolta’s involvement in Tarantino’s film remains uncertain, as he could either have a cameo or a more substantial presence in the story.
