There was a time when I liked Tarantino’s stuff. Reservoir Dogs is excellent. But the one time video store clerk does seem to have descended into the Hollywood morass over the years. Too much hanging out with Weinstein probably.
Good to see as his work has declined he is still shaking the California taxpayer funded money tree though. Guess he’s still good for something.
Thanksgiving and Christmas came a little early today for Quentin Tarantino and Sony Pictures. Picked up by the studio last week, as my colleague Mike Fleming Jr exclusively reported, the director’s next feature is among the 11 films awarded nearly $62.8 million in California tax credits.
The Chris Sanders’ helmed adaptation of Jack London’s Call of the Wild, Destroyer,starring Nicole Kidman and directed by the Karyn Kusama, and an untitled Dan Gilroy project starring Jake Gyllenhaal and Rene Russo were also recipients of the latest round of the hefty incentives made public Monday. The announcement this morning by the California Film Commission comes after that latest round of feature applications for some of the Golden State’s annual $330 million in incentives wrapped up on October 20.
