Quentin Tarantino is going to make his final film in his hometown of Los Angeles.

The tentatively titled The Movie Critic was one of the 16 films approved conditionally for $77.8million (£62.18m) in total tax incentives today by the California Film Commission.

"I love shooting in California," Tarantino said in a statement. "I started directing movies here and it is only fitting that I shoot my final motion picture in the cinema capital of the world. There is nothing like shooting in my hometown; the crews are the best I’ve ever worked with, and the locations are amazing. The producers and I are thrilled to be making #10 in Los Angeles."

According to California’s Film & TV Tax Credit Program, Tarantino will receive $20,213,000 (£16.15m). Receiving $20m (£15.98m), Netflix is the only major studio to have been granted credits for an untitled project, with Restless Productions Inc's Under my Skin as the third non-independent project to be given credits.  

A further 13 independent projects were announced. The indies include projects from parent company Faith Media along with other independent projects tackling storylines ranging from the immigrant’s journey (Chalino) to LGBTQ+ relationships (Saturn Return).

According to the Commission, "the projects are on track to bring $670m (£535.5m)in total production spending to California, including an estimated $466m (£372.45m) in “qualified” expenditures (defined as wages to below-the-line workers and payments to in-state vendors). They will employ an estimated 2,422 crew, 851 cast and 23,427 actors and stand-ins. Production will be spread over a combined 626 filming days in California, including 98 filming days outside the Los Angeles 30-Mile Studio Zone."

Notably, they added, "the projects plan no filming days outside of California."
