After mesmerizing the audience with their fatal looks while doing risky stunts this duo is here for a bigger enterprise directed by the one and only Quentin Tarantino – ‘The Movie Critic‘. Gear up, everyone. The two Hollywood heartthrobs, Tom Cruise and Brad Pitt might appear on the movie screens together.
Both highly accomplished actors have made a name for themselves in the film industry. However, the clash between the two is foreign to no one. Regardless we might have hopes to bury this hatchet and perhaps see the pairing of the year.
The Apple Of Discord Between Tom Cruise And Brad Pitt
Tom Cruise and Brad Pitt have worked together in just one movie, the gothic horror Nosferatu clad ‘Interview With The Vampire’. The shooting of which most probably led to a clash between the both and created a crevice however small for the actors to not have collaborated again to date.
Pitt even mentioned in an interview with Entertainment Weekly that they had very different personalities. Reportedly it was due to Cruise’s character Lestat de Lioncourt getting more weightage in the movie when the book ordained both of their characters with similar fronts. While Pitt and Cruise don’t have any feelings of malice against each other the sense of competitiveness between the two remained since that movie.
Quentin Tarantino is to hang his directorial hat after this final commission. Tarantino once said in an interview that, “Directors don’t get better as they get older.” He added, “Usually the worst films in their filmography are those last four at the end. I am all about my filmography, and one bad film f**ks up three good ones. I don’t want that bad, out-of-touch comedy in my filmography.” He has also made clear that he would direct just ten movies. If that is to hold true Tarantino’s ‘The Movie Critic’ will be his last piece to the film society.
Tarantino is adamant about making his exit a huge success and is rumored to be in talks with Bradd Pitt a former appearance in his movies for his upcoming movie. According to insider Sneider, Tom Cruise is also making time in his busy schedule, shifting dates in order to appear in the movie. He might make a cameo in the production.
From Pornographic Columns To Movie Screens
Quentin Tarantino is well-known for his out-of-the-box, non-linear action comedies which will only make sense after you have seen them a couple of times. His masterful storytelling encaptures one in the story of very unconventional characters. For his bid-adieu piece, he has chosen to immortalize a character who is actually based on a real person.
Tarantino worked as a refiller boy for pornographic magazines in those early wending machines during his teen years. What drew his attention in those magazines contrary to common logic weren’t its risque graphics but a movie critic (whose name he chose to not disclose). That’s Tarantino for you, the cinéaste who will sniff out cinematic material from the most unseemly places.
When talking about the muse for his movie he said, “He wrote about mainstream movies and he was the second-string critic. I think he was a very good critic. He was as cynical as hell. His reviews were a cross between early Howard Stern and what Travis Bickle might be if he were a film critic.” He added that one would easily mistake him to be a seasoned 50-something writer from his articles but he was just in his early 30s highlighting his prodigality somewhat.
