Tarantino reportedly wanted to create a metaverse for ‘The Movie Critic’

Quentin Tarantino aimed to produce a movie as number 10 in his series, where he intended to construct a virtual world. In this imaginary setting, he planned to bring together actors and characters from his previous works. Among the inhabitants, there was even a younger 16-year-old version of himself.

Based on an article in The Hollywood Reporter, Quentin Tarantino’s imagined universe would have been centered around a make-believe movie theater. In this setting, the younger Tarantino would have assumed the role of the usher, engaging with both the filmmakers and the actors portraying their characters within this fictional world.

In simpler terms, the metaverse could have been depicted as a fictional story-within-a-story in “The Movie Critic,” where this concept was presented as a movie shown inside a cinema. Sadly, Quentin Tarantino has announced that The Movie Critic project is not moving forward.

Tarantino’s planned 10th movie, which was supposed to be his last before retirement, has faced setbacks before. Originally intended to be set in the Kill Bill universe, this project would have centered around the daughter of a character killed in the first two films seeking revenge against the protagonist.

Tarantino had strong connections to a mature and edgy Star Trek production, alleged to be Quentin’s unique interpretation of the franchise. However, this initiative seems to have been terminated, as per reports, due to Tarantino’s unwillingness to cap his career with a major franchise movie.

The fate of the metaverse intended for The Movie Critic remains uncertain. We don’t know yet if Quentin Tarantino’s 10th film will involve this concept, but there’s a chance that his creative universe could extend beyond movies.

Back in 2022, according to CryptoMoon’s report, Quentin Tarantino had already explored the world of non-fungible tokens (NFTs) and the metaverse. He made headlines by selling NFTs that offered exclusive behind-the-scenes content from his movies, such as unedited scripts scenes straight from Pulp Fiction.

After being taken to court by Miramax Studios, who asserted rights to the intellectual property in question, it was disclosed that Miramax had been developing Tarantino-themed NFTs. The dispute was ultimately resolved through a mutual agreement between the parties.

Having worked in the industry for almost 4 decades, Quentin Tarantino’s body of work is diverse and intriguing. From his brief appearance as an Elvis impersonator on “Golden Girls” in the 1980s to his more recent retelling of the Charles Manson murders in “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood” (2019), exploring Tarantino’s oeuvre promises a vast and genre-diverse journey for fans.
