A new book called The Best of Quentin Tarantinos: From “Kill Bill” to “Hateful Eight” to his upcoming “Django Unchained,” the writer of such classics as “Dunkirk,” “The Hateful Eight,” and “The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly” has made a name for himself among the industry’s most celebrated and coveted screenwriters.
Now, the book is coming out, and it’s the perfect antidote to what’s been happening in Hollywood for decades.
“You can’t write a movie without a director, and you can’t make a movie unless you have a scriptwriter,” Tarantino, who died in April, told Business Insider in a recent interview.
“And the only people that can write a script are directors, because it’s a direct relationship with the director, you know?
I know, because I wrote them.
They’re not a part of my life.”
So how can anyone get to Tarantino?
Well, there are a few things to know about him, but you might want to get to know his life first, especially if you’re just getting into the writing process.
He grew up in a working-class family in the West Bronx and attended Bronx-area private schools.
He also went to private schools at the same time as his father, a teacher at Bronx Public Schools.
“He was an extremely intelligent kid.
He did not have a lot of talent,” his father told Business Insider in 2008.
“But he did have a certain amount of talent, and I think that was what attracted him to writing.”
As an adult, he worked in movies, working with the likes of George Lucas and James Cameron.
He’s also been a writer in television, film, music, and music videos.
In addition to working as a screenwriter, Tarantino also wrote and directed the acclaimed “Hangover” movie franchise and the award-winning “The Deer Hunter” franchise.
He directed the critically-acclaimed “Logan” and is currently producing the upcoming “Lethal Weapon.”
The author and screenwriter is not averse to working with directors.
He wrote the script for the “Kill List,” the film starring Bruce Willis, that also included Michael Keaton and Nicole Kidman.
And he wrote the screenplay for the recent “Jaws” sequel, which he directed and produced.
“I’ve been a director for seven years now, so I’ve had a lot to learn,” Tarantinos said in the interview.
I don’t know how much of that is because I haven’t had to deal with that kind of stuff.
I also think I have a great instinct for writing scripts.
But it’s about the craft of the script.
I’ve been an incredible writer.
“Tarantino told BusinessInsider in the same interview that he has written three movies and three TV shows over the last seven years.
He credits “The Revenant,” “Lars von Trier’s The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo,” and the “Black Swan” series for shaping his career.
He also credits “Hannah Montana” for giving him confidence.”
That movie is just the best thing ever.
I just went out there and did it.””
I didn’t know I was strong enough.
I just went out there and did it.”
And he has been a major influence on the screenwriters and directors that have followed.
His work has helped set the stage for such writers as Jon Favreau, Joss Whedon, and Judd Apatow.
“Hannibal” is still in theaters, and he has directed several movies, including “The Hangover” franchise, which will come to an end in 2017.
Tarantinos credits his writing process for his success as a writer, saying, “I’m not just a writer.
I’m a storyteller.
I am a writer of stories, and that’s what I love to do.
So to me, writing is more than just a job.”
And as for the money?
Well he told Businessinsider, “If you’re going to write a screenplay, you have to do it for the right reasons.
And for me, I always say, it’s not about money.
It’s about creating a story, and creating a character.
And I can write for any budget.
I can do anything.”
