Oscar-winning actor Brad Pitt is teaming up with Quentin Tarantino once again for a starring role what is expected to be the filmmaker’s final film. Deadline reports that Pitt, who previously starred in Tarantino’s Once Upon a Time in Hollywood and Inglourious Basterds, could be the title character in The Movie Critic.

The report went on to say that Sony Pictures is teaming with Tarantino again, and The Movie Critic is looking at a 2025 release.

Pitt won the Best Supporting Actor award for Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, and his performance in Inglourious Basterds was memorable as well.

The Movie Critic tells the story of a man who wrote movie reviews for a pornographic magazine in California in the 1970s. Tarantino was apparently inspired by his own personal experiences of loading porn magazines into a vending machine when he was a teenager.

In a previous interview with Deadline, Tarantino said the actor playing the main role would be “somebody in the 35-year-old ball park.” He added, “It’ll definitely be a new leading man for me.” Despite this, Deadline said Pitt could indeed play the lead role, but it’s not confirmed yet.

Since his debut with Reservoir Dogs in 1992, Tarantino has made nine films, if you count Kill Bill Volumes 1 and 2 as a single film. His films have netted him both critical acclaim and controversy, with Pulp Fiction and Django Unchained both earning him Academy Awards for Best Screenplay.

2019’s Once Upon a Time in Hollywood is Tarantino’s latest film, and it won two Academy Awards.
