According to Deadline, Tarantino has just signed a two-book deal with HarperCollins. The first book on the schedule is a novelization of his most recent film, “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.” Clearly, the filmmaker is influenced by the novelizations that were so prevalent in his youth and he’s expecting to bring that love to his first work of fiction.
The “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood” novelization will expand on the story of his film and give us a deeper dive into the lives of TV actor Rick Dalton and his stunt double/best friend, Cliff Booth. The novel will arrive in stores next summer.
The second book on the horizon from Tarantino is titled “Cinema Speculation.” The non-fiction book is described as a “deep dive into the movies of the 1970’s, a rich mix of essays, reviews, personal writing, and tantalizing ‘what if’s,’ from one of cinema’s most celebrated filmmakers, and its most devoted fan.” So, if you’re a fan of the various essays and interviews Tarantino has given about old Hollywood and his adoration of films, this is right up your alley.
