How rich is Quentin Tarantino?
There is hardly a filmmaker as well known in the world as Quentin Tarantino. He writes the scripts for each of his films, which has already earned him two Oscars. Occasionally he also appears as an actor in Pulp Fiction, the cult film that gave him his breakthrough in the mid-1990s. However, the director has long since announced his withdrawal from Hollywood. The estimated net worth of Quentin Tarantino is 105 million euros.
How much Quentin Tarantino earns with his films
The exact amounts of money that Quentin Tarantino collects for his work are not known. However, it is estimated that he earns around 17 million euros per film for his work as a director. Also, there is the purchase price that he receives for the script. Also, his contract usually includes a share in the proceeds of the films. Django Unchained, his most commercially successful film, grossed around 360 million euros at box offices worldwide. Even with a one percent stake, Tarantino would have earned 3.6 million euros.
Early passion for filmmaking
As a child without siblings, Quentin Tarantino had a lot of time to go to the cinemas from a young age. There he mainly watched cheap productions and martial arts films. He dropped out of school at the age of 15 and kept himself afloat with various jobs. Among other things, he worked as an usher in a porn cinema and a video shop. At the same time, he attended acting courses and wrote scripts. With two friends, he wrote and directed his first feature film in 1987: My Best Friend’s Birthday. However, some of the material burned in the laboratory, which is why only 36 of the original 70 minutes have survived.
The 1992 film Reservoir Dogs is considered Tarantino’s directorial debut. Two years later, Pulp Fiction was released and made Quentin Tarantino the beacon of hope for the independent Hollywood scene. Despite a relatively modest budget of $ 8.5 million, he was able to win stars such as John Travolta, Bruce Willis, Uma Thurman, and Samuel L. Jackson for his project. Pulp Fiction grossed $ 214 million at the global box office, making it the most successful independent flick of all time. Also, Tarantino and his co-screenwriter Roger Avary received an Oscar for Best Original Screenplay in 1995.
With proven actors for the second Oscar
It soon became apparent that Quentin Tarantino took a lot of time between his films. In Pulp Fiction followed three years later, Jackie Brown (1997), a further six years later Kill Bill – Volume 1 (2003) in the cinemas. The second part of Kill Bill was released in 2004, just one year after the first. Tarantino also prefers to work with certain actors. Uma Thurman took the lead in Kill Bill, and Samuel L. Jackson appeared in both “Jackie Brown” and the second “Kill Bill” part. The collaboration between Tarantino and Christoph Waltz was particularly successful. The latter starred in both 2009 Inglourious Basterds and Django Unchained from 2012 and won an Oscar for best-supporting actor. Tarantino, in turn, received his second Oscar for the screenplay for Django Unchained.
The end of your career?
Before Quentin Tarantino’s eighth film, The Hateful Eight, hit theaters in 2015, he announced that he would not do any more after his tenth film. Accordingly, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, which was released in 2019, could be the director’s penultimate film. However, Tarantino was good for one or two surprises in his career. So the last word at the end of his career is far from being said.
