Quentin Tarantino Net Worth $90 Million

Quentin Tarantino dropped out of school at 15 to enrol in an acting class full-time at the James Best Theater Company, but grew bored with that and went to work in a video rental store, paying close attention to the types of films which were popular. He co-wrote his first screenplay in 1987, a movie entitled “My Best Friend’s Birthday” in which he also portrayed one of the main characters, but part of which was destroyed prior to release; however, it subsequently formed the basis for “True Romance”.

In 1992, Tarantino’s directing career took-off with “Reservoir Dogs”, which was shown at the Sundance Film Festival, and became an instant hit with many positive reviews. The film grossed over $2.8 million at the box office, comfortably covering its $1.2 million budget. Tarantino continued to write screenplays and sold his script for “True Romance”, as well as “Natural Born Killers” for which he was credited in the movies, and with the success of “Reservoir Dogs”, Tarantino received offers to work on “Speed” and “Men in Black” with Will Smith, but chose to focus on his film “Pulp Fiction” instead.

“Pulp Fiction” was released in 1994, causing a sensation during its opening night. Considered to be a prime example of a post-modern film, “Pulp Fiction” became a worldwide commercial success with over $107 million at the United States box office. The movie, starring John Travolta, Samuel L. Jackson, Uma Thurman and Tim Roth, was nominated for seven Oscars, and at the 1994 Cannes Film Festival was given the Palm d’Or (Golden Palm) award.These nominations and awards did no harm to Taratino’s reputation, as well as to his net worth.

Quentin Tarantino followed his success with a thriller film titled “Kill Bill” that was released as two films “Kill Bill: Vol 1” and “Kill Bill: Vol 2”. The movies, whose main roles were played by Uma Thurman, Lucy Liu and Michael Madsen, grossed over $333 million at the box office worldwide. The revenue collected from these movies immensely increased Quentin Tarantino’s net worth.

Tarantino’s fthurer success came with the release of “Inglourious Basterds” in 2009, a war film with the main characters portrayed by Brad Pitt, Michael Fassbender, and Diane Kruger. The movie grossed over $321 million worldwide and became the highest-grossing film that Tarantino had written and directed at the time. Tarantino’s most recent production is a movie with Jamie Foxx, Leonardo DiCaprio and Samuel L  Jackson starring called “Django Unchained”. An Academy Award and Golden Globe Awards winner, “Django Unchained” has grossed over $425 million worldwide to date, and so has become Tarantino’s most successful movie in pure financial terms.His net worth continued to rise.

Currently, Quentin Tarantino is working on another movie tentatively called “The Hateful Eight” and will feature Samuel L Jackson, Tim Roth, and Michael Madsen in the main roles, and due for release in 2015.

BAFTA Awards, Golden Globe Awards, as well as Academy Awards winner, Quentin Tarantino is undoubtedly one of the most successful film directors and producers. Quentin Tarantino’s status and importance in the entertainment industry is not only proven by his $90 million worth of net worth but the number of remarkable movies he has written and produced.

In his personal life, Quentin Tarantino  has been romantically linked with several actresses and directors, particularly with Uma Thurman but has remained single from, as he puts it, personal choice, possibly until he is 60, when he indicates that he will retire.
