Quentin Tarantino teases ‘Once Upon A Time in Hollywood’ novel adaption

If the upcoming Once Upon A Time In Hollywood spin-off wasn’t enough, now Quentin Tarantino has announced that he’s seriously considering writing a novel based on his 2019 film as well.

The director said he was “thinking a lot” about a potential book revival of his Oscar-nominated film on the latest Pure Cinema podcast, which he initially joined to discuss his ongoing hobby of quietly writing super-detailed film reviews online.

Quentin Tarantino fans listen up! Your favourite director has teased a potential novel adaption of his Oscar-nominated film about Hollywood’s Golden Age.

“I hadn’t thought about that until recently. But now I’m thinking a lot about it. I might be writing a novelisation to Once Upon A Time In Hollywood,” he told interviewers.

Despite announcing that he was taking a break from work to focus on his family, the director seems to be keeping himself very busy. Earlier this year, Tarantino announced that the film’s fictitious TV show Bounty Law was to be made into a spin-off movie following the success of its predecessor.

The filmmaker also released A Love Letter To Making Movies in January, a 30-minute documentary that shows the behind-the-scenes of Once Upon A Time In Hollywood. The documentary shows the man in action, giving audiences a taste of Tarantino’s creative process, ideas, and inspirations.

Most importantly though, the director has recently been spending his time subtly posting movie reviews online, and he really hasn’t been holding back. Tarantino lovingly called Prophecy (1979) “pretty much a piece of shit from the word go” while another compares a film’s script to “one hot fuckin’ potato.”
