Sony "Once Upon a Time in Hollywood" Tarantino DiCaprio Pitt Margot Robbie late sixties Manson adjacent period film

Sort of Charles Manson adjacent but the article cautions that's not the main focus
Also Tarantino likes to promote the idea he only has a limited finite number of movies left in him before he retires from directing

When people think they're retiring, i think it's different than the feeling they get after it. I think people leave things, retire, and sometimes they miss them and go back. No idea what kind of person Tarantino is, but maybe he'll miss filmmaking if really does hang it up after the next few.

His niche is also fading. Most people are going to the theaters to watch the big blockbusters. The midbudget films are disappearing (seemingly being replaced by higher quality TV shows). Tarantino movies are one of the few reasons I'll go to a theatre to see a non-blockbuster film.

Tarantino (possibly) directing Cruise, DiCaprio, Pitt, Robbie. I'm absolutely on board. Being a 60's period piece is (with these actors) icing on the cake. That it circles around the Manson murders somehow gives me pause but I'm willing to give the project a lot of latitude because of the names involved. I do wonder, though, what QT would have done with a more "fun" 60's period piece like, say, Guy Ritchie's Man From UNCLE.

I doubt Tarantino will retire. Look how many times Hayao Miyazaki attempted retirement. It always ends in failure. Now Miyazaki has a new movie in production.
