Tarantino Says Again He's Retiring After Next Two Movies
The Hateful Eight director says he wants to be known as "one of the greatest filmmakers that ever lived."
For a long time now, director Quentin Tarantino has said he will retire after his tenth movie. In the past, however, he's left some wiggle room with statements like "it's not etched in stone."
But speaking today at the Adobe Max conference in San Diego, the Pulp Fiction director offered a stronger statement about retiring. He'll make two more movies and then "Drop the mic. Boom. Tell everybody, 'Match that sh**,'" he said, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
"Hopefully, the way I define success when I finish my career is that I'm considered one of the greatest filmmakers that ever lived. And going further, a great artist, not just filmmaker," Tarantino added.
He told the audience that before he makes his next movie, rumored to be a "Bonnie and Clyde-eque" story in 1930s Australia, he is committed to his historical nonfiction project about the year 1970 and its impact on film. "It could be a book, a documentary, a five-part podcast," he said.
The latest movie directed by Tarantino was 2015's The Hateful Eight.
His eight movies so far have included Reservoir Dogs, Pulp Fiction, Jackie Brown, Kill Bill: Vol. 1, Kill Bill Vol. 2, Inglourious Basterds, Django Unchained, and The Hateful Eight.
