Some things just go together - dads and SUVs, Gen Zers and technology, and Quentin Tarantino and Samuel L. Jackson.

While the details of Tarantino’s tenth and final film have been pretty hush-hush, Jackson hasn't ruled out appearing in the flick.

The actor, who has appeared in six of Tarantino’s movies, was asked by Vulture’s Bilge Ebiri if there are any plans of him making an appearance in The Movie Critic.

So that's definitely not a no.

The Snakes on a Plane actor also went on to discuss Tarantino’s Once Upon in Hollywood, when he noted there were very few Black people in the movie.

“When I saw Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, I mean, how many Black people are in that movie? Maybe three. It was kind of like watching Goodfellas. When I was in Goodfellas, it’s like me and somebody else,” he said.

But the actor didn’t bring it up to his director friend.

“I’ve only seen him once since the movie came out and that was at my Oscar ceremony. He came to that. That’s the only time I’ve seen him and I wasn’t going to talk about Once Upon a Time in Hollywood that night,” he told the outlet.

Tarantino has already teased that his final film will follow a real-life critic who once wrote reviews for a porn magazine.

While speaking to Deadline at the Cannes Film Festival, he revealed that this real-life character is a cross between radio king Howard Stern and Taxi Driver’s Travis Bickle.

“The porno rag critic was very, very funny. He was very rude, you know. He cursed. He used racial slurs. But his s**t was really funny. He was as rude as hell. He wrote like he was 55, but he was only in his early to mid-30s. He died in his late thirties,” he continued.

When pressed about why this would be his last film, the director admitted he liked the idea of going out ‘on top’ after more than three decades in the business.

He added: “I like the idea of giving it my all for 30 years and then saying, ‘OK, that’s enough'.

"And I don’t like working to diminishing returns. And I mean, now is a good time because I mean, what even is a motion picture anyway anymore? Is it just something that they show on Apple?"
