Quentin Tarantino has talked for the last few years about the idea that he'll make 10 films and then retire. Once Upon A Time In Hollywood was his ninth as director and, according to The Hollywood Reporter, he's found his 10th in The Movie Critic.

While Tarantino is keeping typically quiet in the early stages, the script is reportedly written and he's looking to film it in the autumn. And according to the trade magazine's sources, it'll focus on a female film critic in 1970s Los Angeles.

As the Reporter suggests, that could point to legendary critic, essayist and novelist Pauline Kael (someone Tarantino has deep respect for) as the inspiration.

There is no studio attached yet, but we can only imagine the scramble to be involved in "Quentin Tarantino's final film" from both companies and actors. Whether he truly does call it quits after this is anyone's guess, but at least we know what he's planning as his potential swansong…
