Quentin Tarantino documentary 21 Years gets underway
Quentin Tarantino’s filmmaking career is old enough to buy a beer — and, it seems, to get its own documentary.
Production has commenced on 21 Years: Quentin Tarantino, an authorized look at the career so far of the idiosyncratic filmmaker behind Reservoir Dogs, Pulp Fiction, Kill Bill, and the upcoming Hateful Eight, director-producer Tara Wood confirmed to EW.
The film will feature interviews with such Tarantino collaborators as Samuel L. Jackson, John Travolta, Jamie Foxx, Christoph Waltz, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Lucy Liu, and Kerry Washington.
Wood previously co-directed the documentary 21 Years: Richard Linklater, which similarly explored the work of Richard Linklater (Slacker, Boyhood).
Tarantino, 52, is of course a two-time Oscar winner who specializes genre-bending, non-linear films that crackle with memorably profane dialogue. He’s recently been in the news for speaking out against police brutality at a New York City rally, prompting several police unions to call for a boycott of his films.
Variety first reported the start of production on Wood’s film.
