Quentin Tarantino Signs Two Book Deal With HarperCollins Publishers

Academy Award-winning filmmaker Quentin Tarantino has signed a two book deal with Harper, an imprint of HarperCollins Publishers. Tarantino’s first work of fiction, Once Upon A Time In Hollywood, will be published in Summer 2021. The novel is based on his Oscar-winning film, which received ten Academy Award nominations. In the tradition of the classic movie novelizations that have long inspired Tarantino, the book will appear initially as a Harper Perennial mass market paperback, alongside ebook and digital audio editions. A deluxe hardcover edition will follow in Fall 2021.

Once Upon A Time In Hollywood will amplify Tarantino’s original award-winning vision, while also offering a fresh, playful and shocking departure from the film. The novel will chart the lives of Tarantino’s protagonists – TV actor Rick Dalton and his stunt double Cliff Booth – both forward and backward in time.

“In the seventies movie novelizations were the first adult books I grew up reading,” says Tarantino. “And to this day I have a tremendous amount of affection for the genre. So as a movie-novelization aficionado, I’m proud to announce Once Upon A Time In Hollywood as my contribution to this often marginalized, yet beloved sub-genre in literature. I’m also thrilled to further explore my characters and their world in a literary endeavor that can (hopefully) sit alongside its cinematic counterpart.”

Vice President and Executive Editor Noah Eaker, who acquired North American rights from the William Morris Endeavor Agency, says, “Quentin Tarantino’s literary talents have been in plain sight since his first scripts, but to see how skillfully he endows his characters with life on the page and how he constantly takes a reader by surprise, even one who knows the movie by heart, is to see a master storyteller trying on a new form and making it his own.”

Tarantino’s second work with Harper will be a book of nonfiction, Cinema Speculation. He has often cited film critic Pauline Kael as a literary hero and over the years has teased a career pivot toward film-writing. The long-awaited result is a deep dive into the movies of the 1970’s. The book will be 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.

Check Out This Cool Retro Style Once Upon In Time in Hollywood Poster

Sony Pictures has debuted this cool retro poster for Quentin Tarantino’s latest film Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, which premiered at Cannes to rave reviews.

Set in Los Angeles in the summer of 1969, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood focuses on a male TV actor named Rick Dalton (DiCaprio) who’s had one hit western series and is looking for a way to get into the film business. His sidekick Cliff Booth (Pitt) — who’s also his stunt double — is looking for the same thing. The horrific murder of Sharon Tate (Rick’s neighbor in the film, portrayed by Robbie) and four of her friends by Charles Manson’s cult of followers serves as a backdrop to the main story. The movie is said to be similar to a “Pulp Fiction-like tapestry” that covers a group of characters during that summer.

The film is lead by A-List stars Brad Pitt and Leonardo DiCaprio along with a massive ensemble cast that includes Margot Robbie, Timothy Olyphant, Kurt Russell,  Michael Madsen, Tim Roth, Damian Lewis, Luke Perry, Emile Hirsch, Dakota Fanning, Clifton Collins, Keith Jefferson, Nicholas Hammond, James Marsden, Julia Butters , Scoot McNairy, Damon Herriman, Austin Butler, Lena Dunham, Maya Hawke, Mike Moh, Rafal Zawierucha, Rumer Willis, Dream Walker, Costa Ronin, Margaret Qualley, Victoria Pedretti, Zoe Bell, Bruce Dern and Al Pacino.

Once Upon a Time in Hollywood opens in theaters July 26.
