Quentin Tarantino is back in the director’s chair with his upcoming film, The Movie Critic, which he has stated will be his last. While some details about the plot have been revealed, the cast has also been a topic of interest. According to Deadline, Brad Pitt is the first actor to join the cast of Tarantino’s new film. Although his role has not been disclosed, there is speculation that he may portray the film’s lead character.
This would mark the third collaboration between Pitt and Tarantino, following their work together on Once Upon a Time in… Hollywood and Inglourious Basterds. However, it is important to note that Pitt’s role as the protagonist in The Movie Critic is merely a rumor at this point. Tarantino previously described the film as revolving around a real film critic who wrote for a California porn magazine in the 1970s, characterizing him as a cynical and influential figure.
Despite the speculation surrounding Pitt’s role, it seems unlikely that he will play the film critic, as Tarantino had expressed a preference for a performer around 35 years of age for the lead role. In addition to Pitt, reports have surfaced that John Travolta has also joined the cast of The Movie Critic. This has led to speculation that Tarantino is reuniting with two of his former stars, as both Pitt and Travolta fit that description.
Travolta previously worked with Tarantino on Pulp Fiction, and his involvement in The Movie Critic adds to the anticipation surrounding the film. While a confirmed release date for The Movie Critic has not been announced, it is expected to hit theaters in 2025. As fans eagerly await further details about the film, the combination of Tarantino’s directorial prowess and the star-studded cast is sure to generate significant buzz in the coming years.
