Iconic director Quentin Tarantino is serious than ever about his retirement plan after the movie “Once Upon in Hollywood”
Quentin Tarantino has talked on a few occasions about his plans to retire from filmmaking after his 10th feature film.
The 56-year-old director’s latest offering, which is to be released on 15th August in the UK, is his ninth movie. The movie would make it his penultimate directorial effort if he’s serious about giving up the job.
In a recent interview with GQ Australia, he talked about his retirement plan.
“I think when it comes to theatrical movies, I’ve come to the end of the road,” Tarantino said. “I see myself writing film books and starting to write theatre, so I’ll still be creative. I just think I’ve given all I have to give to movies.”
“If it’s really well received, maybe I won’t go to 10. Maybe I’ll stop right now! Maybe I’ll stop while I’m ahead. We’ll see,” when asked what he would do if his next film was a runaway success.
“Once Upon a Time in Hollywood” is Tarantino’s love letter to the filmmaking era that made him fall in love with cinema as a young kid.
The movie, starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Brad Pitt, and Margot Robbie, premiered at the Cannes Film Festival earlier this year.
