21 Years: Quentin Tarantino comes from film-maker Tara Wood and probes into the legendary director’s legendary career.
Quentin Tarantino is all over the place recently. If he’s not in news reports about an ongoing boycott battle with the police unions in the US, he’s promoting his upcoming western The Hateful Eight. All of this goes to show that the iconic director has an intriguing personal life. So why hasn’t anyone explored the back story of this living character. Well, they’re about to, and it’s going to be an examination of nearly his entire career.
The news from Slashfilm is that film-maker Tara Wood will be taking on the task of putting Tarantino’s story on the screen. The film titled 21 years: Quentin Tarantino will look at – you guessed it – the first 21 years of Tarantino’s career. If your maths is a little rusty, that goes from his breakout Reservoir Dogs in 1992 up to Django Unchained, which came out in 2012. Even though Tarantino isn’t the most prolific director out there, this is no small feat. Wood will have to do justice to seven entirely unique projects, including Pulp Fiction, Inglorious Basterds and both Kill Bill volumes.
Not to worry though, Wood has it covered. The director has already cut her teeth on a film-maker documentary with 21 Years: Richard Linklater. As you can imagine, this doc served a similar purpose for Linklater, probing the first two decades of his career and how he changed the landscape of his field.
So who can expect to see talking up Tarantino in this doc? A whole ubunch of stars as it happens. No effort has been spared in getting as many collaborator together to get a full view of the director in question. Names include Samuel L. Jackson, John Travolta, Christoph Waltz, Lucy Liu, Zoë Bell, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Jamie Foxx, Eli Roth, Robert Forster, Diane Kruger, Michael Madsen and Kerry Washington.
Production is already underway for 21 Years: Quentin Tarantino, but no official release date as yet. However, The Hateful Eight is still set for its limited Christmas Day 2015 release before a full release in January.
